Trip in the making

Post by Peaky on Tue 14 Apr 2015, 2:46 pm

First topic message reminder :


Just starting to organised my first trip for the season

Got one from the forum ready to meet up and smash a old patch that Crazy Pete and I nick named the Hangover Patch kwdf kwdf

I have been wanting to get back there for the last two seasons but have never been able to make it Evil or Very Mad

I don't know about others but before the first trip for the season I sit and read the Manual for the detector wtf

I have done this every season and in the early days I would read it before every trip

Any way I would be keen to know how many are getting ready or are out there enjoying the camp fire and the Gold wegr wegr

Was My trip that I have had in the making for about 6 mths

Only had room for a few people as the ground is very open so with to many the game is up on the patch

Sorry mate but we all can't be on all the trips

There are trip that I have worked on and at the last minute can't go and hand all the information I have on to the next

had a great couple of days out on the hangover patch with the boy's.
they are still cracking away until Monday but i planned to get home Sunday so i could rest up before slogging away at work again.
everybody on the trip is pulling gold and i'm sure they are still bashing away at it as i type.
i got to witness a wide variety off detectors used and set up's with very interesting results, a won't elaborate but the 7000 was impressive although all gold won was small and shallow. but i will say it was getting a clearer signal then the 5k with 11 inch mono, although the 5k with sadie picked up some of the targets the the 11 inch couldn't. peaky has his 4500 singing, he has mastered that machine and could ping these targets using a 14x9 NF.
on top off this peaky's young fella Jack rolls out the car and get's a 2300 thrown into his hands and told try over there where the 7000 had picked up targets and used to test the 5k's set up's. well within minutes Jack had a nugget in his bottle and 4 hours later had a dozen in there, the SDC was unreal on this gold and it was great to see the young bloke bagging nugget after nugget. a natural GM and he was at it again when i left today scratching at the dirt.

strijky, it was great to finally meet you in person. you couldn't get a nicer bloke to spend a couple nights out bush with. it was a bloody pleasure mate thank you.

peaky, cheers for the invite mate and the chance to get me gold tally under way for this year, bloody good to catch up again man.

crazy Pete, you copped it all weekend bud hahahaha, sorely missed mate and a few great yarns flying around the campfire.

had lot's of laughs n beers and the gold was flowing what more could you want.
cheers guy's and hope we all can get together again sometime soon.

Peaky told me of your initial headf^#K at the fence so i hope that was sorted quick smart.
Been thinkin of yaz all frigging weekend as i sat at home in 12c cold waitin for the rain to stop here, and it's finally stopped this

Glad to hear young Jack got stuck into some gold, bet his dad was proud as hell Very Happy
Hope you buggers took plenty of photos, cant wait to see your ugly heads Razz Razz

good luck to you and Rie today Pete
peaky was proud mate, i think they would be wrestling each other over the SDC as peaky had a quick 20min bang with it while the young bloke was sleeping in and was nailing small nug's. 3 in a square meter or less on ground we all had been over and was blown away by the 2300 sensitivity.
i come home with 4 nugg's and a ironstone speci and i was using a 11 inch and also a 14x9 nf. now that i'm home i should have put the 8 inch commander on and maybe would have done better.
but i was just wrapped in picking up a few for around 3.5g's and when cleaned will post some photo's.
strijky's mate Jim was a great fella to, good for a laugh and had some good gold story's to tell, he did quite well on the count and was just  in front of strijky but he traveled home with me yesterday so i'm sure the  boy's out there still will win in the end.
I've woke up this morning still buzzing with excitement, that's how much fun i had.
great trip with great bunch off blokes.
cheers

Well home safe last night at 3.30

Had a great trip

Jase Thanks or the few beers you left as we needed them

Pete thank for loaning Jack the SDC2300 and marking a few for him to get started on

Not sure he needed the help
So Jack worked hard on a small area of about 10 mtrs X 10 mtrs with the SDC2300
His tally for the trip was 62 pieces for just over half a ounce cheers eafgh eafgh

Not bad for a 15yo having his first real trip detecting full time like the rest of us ( I will post some Pics and Vid when I can )

I'm not sure of my count as yet but I think it is around the 50 mark

I'm so impressed with the SDC2300 this thing we pinging gold all over the place and we were getting 2 bits in some holes
I was getting sick of standing up and then having to get down again to dig another hole I was thinking of crawling ( I'm not kidding )
I started to chain a small area 10 mtrs long and the first run took me 35-40 minutes so over a 5 hour stint I only got 6 runs over the area
There is about another 100 mtrs of the patch to go

Anyway I need to get some work done so I will get more info up when I can

Peaky
PS Pete can report on the GPZ7000

that's unreal peaky,
congrats to yourself and young Jack mate.
that SDC has opened my eyes but it must have been tiring work pulling that many in such a short stay.
i ended up with a embarrassing 4.5g's out off 4 nugg's and 1 speci. hahahaha

go for it Pete, the sensitivity was brilliant, keep ya eye out for a s/handy mate and save ya self a bit. seen them go for $3200 on gumtree etc.

bloody bugger i cannot seem to get pictures up, me puter not syncing with the vid recorder or with my phone.
just got it back from the shop to, was getting hacked and losing all my GB's. stealing up to 6G a day the mongrels.
the not syncing thing might have something to do with me not being able to scan and store my documents, when i scan it does not bring up the box to tag and store and i think the above and this is the same problem.

anyhow my biggest piece was a nice flat 1.6g's and i smashed a gram out off the speci.
