Still detecting!!

I used to be a regular contribiter to the forums but since moving from California to here in Utah 3 years ago, I have only gone detecting a handful of times. I still have my trusty Minelab Safari which has paid for itself many, many times over in gold and silver. I used to live just about 1 hr from the beach and now I'm over 400 miles from it. Man, I miss my beach detecting trips! I'm still in the game though!! G.S.

Maybe you should shift gears.
Go for the gold. Decent gold up there.
Or the oll wagon trails.
Supposed to still be a good bit of loot round there.
Somewhere.
Good Luck

Yes, your right I should shift gears! There is an old Spanish Trail that dates back to the 1600-1700s just a couple of miles away and a few ghost towns as well. I really need to buddy up with someone because it's 6000 ft elevation on the flat and fairly rugged terrain.

Best of luck to you with your new hunting terrain. I use the Safari too, and look forward to taking it out on a Relic hunt here shortly. The Safari is a great detector. It has and does all I need in a detector.

It is a great detector. It's on the heavy side and there is no backlight. Other than those negatives, I love the fbs tones. They take getting used to but it'll alway's reward you with deep silver and gold!!!

Finding a reliable trust worthy digging partner is never easy.
See if there's any clubs around.
If you go alone. Do take it slow and easy.
Getting acclimated to altitude is definitely an issue.
Coming back from Arizona picking up my son after retirement from the air force. And his property
We stopped in the 14ers near the American Eagle gold mine in Colorado. Around 10,000ft.
Getting out walking around didn't feel difficult.
Until we started walking up an down a few hills.
In my mid 40's then.
I didn't last long at all.
So be careful. Enjoy your new location.

Hope to read of some of your incredible hunts.
Good Luck.

Thanks! Age catches up with all of us dose'nt it!! I will make sure I have a buddy when I go into the mountains. A satellite phone is a must and it's best to take a firearm just in case a mountain lion comes stalking you!! Hopefully going out more often as spring comes along with better weather!!
