Uncle, I wonder if that's where most of the "gold" is, in selling the gear?
I read a bit now and then and it appears that the stuff is everywhere just waiting for you.
And the latest detectors make the whole thing a snack.
Yeah, right !!
It's always been an interest of mine, but from a distance. Love to yarn to the guys, but it's strange how they all have the same glint in their eyes. :))

Footy, its getting harder each year to find it, in Vic, been coming down here for over 20 yrs now and in the heat over the last 3 weeks, w've only managed a little over an ounce. Temps are set to drop to 21 deg on Thurs next week so we'll be into it again when it cools down, been relaxing a bit in the water while its hot.

Good luck to you Uncle, looks like the precious is going up over $US1000 an ounce tonight. You'll only need a couple to pay for your trip and a couple more for the gear.
