Tucson Show

14 February 2015 - 11:44 AM

I was at the Tucson Show last saturday and sunday.  It was good to see Mark Bowling and talk with him awhile.  There are many others that I usually catch up with at the Michael Blood Auction, but since the was no auction this year, I was curious as to whom did attend the show, what they bought, and their thoughts on the show in general.

Finds from the Nuggetshooter Outing

Here's the Gold Basin's that I found last weekend at the forum outing. 


To those who are new to this:  note that these are not glossy, overly dark, or heavily rounded.

In fact, they're ugly.  And this is AFTER being brushed clean with soap and water, not

covered with dust and dirt.


Monday's Flooding

09 September 2014 - 02:05 PM

Anyone thinking of hunting any desert or dry lakes near Las Vegas, or Phoenix, will be waiting

a while til things dry out from yesterday's deluge.  We had more than four inches of rain here

at my house.  If I had enough scrap lumber, I'd have built an arc.....



Lyrid Meteor Shower tonight!

21 April 2014 - 09:37 PM

      The peak of the annual Lyrid Meteor Shower should be between Midnight tonight, and dawn.  The radiant

that they'll come from will be found about halfway between northeast and east, above and to the right of The Northern Cross.

If the waning moon isn't too bad, you could see about 20 per hour.

                                 Enjoy the show,  Ben
