Well guys & girls,

I've been trying very hard to get "something" to add to the members finds for quite some time. Since my last "nugget" I've been on a 5 month dry spell. Going out once a month, that means I've done about 5 months of bush cleaning, many hundreds, probably thousands of bullets, buttons, rusty rubbish etc, and today I finally got a little reward for all my efforts, and I managed to get it on video too - BONUS (but please excuse the bad photograthy).

I tried hard for about an hour to see if there were any brother and sister nuggets in the immediate area, but with the temperature climbing way past the 30 degree mark, the sweat pouring off me like my head was in a bucket of hot water and the flies annoying the crap out of me, I had to finally give up. It was a great couple of days with the Gullyhunter, theGoldenChild and G.B. and everyone got a rattle in the jar to take home. Mine wasn't a big as some, but I'm rapped I've finally opened the gold bank account for the year! Many thanks for a great weekend guys Q12

5 outings with no gold, seriously considered dropping you down to the seconds to your form came back lol! . Should call it the "just in time nugget", probably saved your position in the A team, but still have to start you from the bench Very Happy Laughing .

Good onya Con, hope they start rolling in now on a regular basis.
Little concerning that 30°C heat bothered you, that's a cold snap over here.
53°C in the shade of a tree in Leonora last week.

Well done mate
I'm glad you broke your drought
5 months is a long time
But at a day a month it's only 5 days
Now that sounds not so bad !
Glad you had a good weekend
And thanks for posting the vid ,
It sounded like a definite target
Nice little drop tone
cheers

Thanks guys for the congrats.

Yes Gullyhunter, it has been a looooooooooooooooooooong 5 months, but not from lack of trying. Hopefully this light sprinkle is a sign that the drought has ended and now the flood is about to start.
Mike, forgot to say it was great meeting you and Jenny out there and hope to catch up again soon.
Ren, I've tried foot massages, I've tried back rubs, I've tried flowers and chocolates, I've tried it all - the answer is still the same, it never changes Sad
GoldenChild, please don't send me to the bench, or kick me out of the A-team....I'll play better next time, I'll be good, you'll see....please
Nightjar, you're a better man than me. 30 degrees and I was flaking it, you can keep your 53 degrees any day of the week....Autumn just can't come on soon enough for me.
Your right lbg, 5 outings has been my dryspell and it does sound much better, but when they're spread over 5 months, well that's a long time for the thirst to build up between drinks.

Nevertheless, the good old SD finally found something again, so as not to let those evil GPXs get too far ahead. Now that it's sniffed out and remembered the scent of gold again, next month it'll definitely give the GPXs a run for their money. Here's Q10 anyway.

Costa mate 5 months without a gold strike Shocked "Blood Hell" mate I thought I was going bad when I went through a 3 week drought Crying or Very sad Anyway mate congradulations on your first for the year. Q15 Now if you get chucked out of the "A Team" you are more than welcome to come over to the "B team" We don't pay as much but the conditions are great. Q13

Well done and it goes to show you are very patient after that 5 month dry spell, it can do your head in sometimes but it goes to show persistence does pay off. Very Happy

Thanks for all the Q13 guys.

Pete it's the 2200d, judging by the serial number, if I got it right, 3rd last one that was made. No mods, just a quick track button and the 14"DD Elite.

If it had been a 2100 Con, I could have given you some tried and proven set up info.

good to see you're on the gold again costas dee.
The gold tends to hide from time to time, I get these dry spells too and just when you
think all the gold is gone, out comes a nugget or two again. It is getting harder, but time
is on your side.
good luck out there
