Gold Prospecting Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • From Experience getting new keys for our 10-year-old Mazda 5, $125.00 each!
    • D'oh.. About the same as finding a picture of $112.87 in loose change, which is probably around what it costs to replace the durn thing going the cheapest route possible.. Mazda.. Least expensive blank the g/f found online was $60 off of eBay.. Who knows what a dealer charges to chip & cut one on top of that..? Guessing I'm wayyy lowball @ $45 - 50, huh..?  Like I said, it's only worth anything to the person who lost it -- or at this point better make that: "...WAS only worth anything..." (Sorry about the soft pix' -- cam refuses to focus even remotely up close..) This is the second car key I've found in the last 3 weeks or so.. This FOB happened the past week.. The other key had a much happier ending.. I'm walking up the beach from the pier to where I usually park.. I'd overstayed a bit, so it's about 45 min to dark.. A college-age kid walking towards me stops and in heavily accented english to the point I can barely understand him asks me 'can that find keys..?' ( Stop thinking what you're thinking, cos I ain't going there, even though this is a perfect situation for typing any one of about a dozen typical "me" replies.. Now that the world has gone all totally nuts-o and gotten sooo mind-numbingly PC as well, one must be extra careful with word choices and inferences in and on public everywheres & everythings these days.. ) I tell him as long as there's metal involved and they didn't get buried 4 feet deep "as a joke", I should be able to find them.. He leads on about 200 yards up the beach until we come upon this group of another five kids just kinda hanging out.. They seriously looked like a UN Jr. delegation, that's how diverse their physical selves differed from one another.. I never asked and they never said, but my guess is they were a group of UCF frosh doing summer school who drove over to the beach for the day.. When it was time to go they packed up, carried everything up to their car, and uh-oh, no car key.. So back to where they'd been came they.. Even though I would have eventually walked past them, at least the one kid had it together enough to set out looking for help.. Good thing too, cos it was getting dark fast and I had no head lamp or flashlight with me.. The local in the group finally got everyone quiet and showed me where they'd been set up.. I gridded it out in my head and started walking from the edge of the loose sand inland, hoping the keys really had been dropped in that area.. On the 4th pass I get a hit.. It's one key, all by itself, not on a ring or anything, buried beyond any hope of visual-only discovery.. I haven't seen a group of people that happy in quite a while.. One of the girls ran up and gave me a big hug (which I did not return with my arms, just kinda leaned in a bit..); they offered me money, which I would not accept -- and profusely thanked me repeatedly, which I will admit did make me feel kinda good and was also more than good enough for me.. All I said was: Hey, no problem.. You're welcome.. Now g'wan, get outta here before your grandmother realizes her car is missing.. I did suggest to the driver he pick up a flotation key chain though.. You know, birthday gift for Granny, for when she drives over to the beach by herself, using her spare car key only, or something like that..  Swamp
