Haven't posted much lately, too busy at my day job, the one that pays for the money I lose prospecting... Very Happy

Thought I'd share a few little samples of some I've dug up lately... my gold gettin rig and the view when I stop swinging coil at night..... (I usually don't have the black box on the back but this was an extended duration trip and I had extra gear to take).

Cheers... thanks Pete... (subbed to your youtube channels).

I don't do much video uploading but threw a couple up... I do so much trash in this area I never start the camera before digging but they're honest finds. (Note, I find that it weighs more if you slam the nugget onto the scale... LOL (it was a long day and I'd just driven back to Vegas from the gold fields and was half asleep)).

Thanks everyones... appreciate the support... I'm about to head back out for the next few months (my job allows me to work remote so I do from 6am till 2pm my bill paying job) then hit the gold fields... I can work from home so take my caravan out and park it on the fields and away I go... life's good.

Joe, I LOVE this ATV.... in 2014 the US Govt contracted with Polaris to make a military version of the Sportsman 450 subframe system. They had specific requirements for it and after fullfilling the govt contract, Uncle Sam gave them approval to sell remaining stock to the idiots like me that had more money than brains, didnt mind it waying like 1,500lb and bonded tires requiring a $1,000.00 USD purchase for each tire when they eventually need replacement... but you know what... it's the best money I ever spent... unlike the civilian line, this has dual fuel tanks, upgraded EVERYTHING, and obviously no worries about a flat.

The military version is called the MV850 (military vehicle), the civilian ones they sold in ONLY one year (2014) is called the WV850 (working vehicle)... exact same rig, different paint is all (well the military version has a roll bar near where the windshield should be, to save those soldiers who roll it apparently).

The only drawback is that when in what we call a wash (gravel filled dry river bed), the honeycombs get filled up by rocks and once you get on hard pack, your'e still getting thwapped in the back of the head with pebbles... LOL (actually it's not that bad, the foot wells are wider than stock for the big military booties so that keeps some of it down.

It fits into the back of my Toyota Tundra with a long bed 8'... but just barely...

Thanks Dave... they're actually surprisingly not that dear... I purchased mine new in Nov. 2017 (it had been sitting in storage since new as a collectors item and never ridden) but you can still find good deals on them due to the age, even down under I bet. They pop up on Craigslist here (at dealers mainly) so I imagine Gumtree there... or any of the specialty bike classifieds.
