Thx Mike, still getting a few but nothing like the bit i got early in the peace. Laughing
Getting a wee bit hot now and thinking of giving it away...im stuffed after digging a .5gramer. Laughing Laughing

Been back to Kal a few times to check on some interesting spots, but nothing came of it so went nth again....should have stayed as its a little hotter up here and the flies a bigger.Shocked  

The others left about a week ago for home, Arron's dad died and he had to go sort stuff out.

I think we need a holiday....Esprance looks nice, and the thunder storms even better. Maybe take a week and see if i can get a few photos. T05

G'day Owen,

Sorry to hear about Aaron's Dad and I hope all goes well for them.

Yes the weather is starting to get a bit on the warm side here too. We packed up today and are thinking of calling it quits as well. The Flies! well they have certainly gotten bigger here as well, we have been getting hit with March Flies. Shocked We don't usually see them until around Feb back home.

Esperance sounds good to us, as we have been wanting to go down there for the last few years. Jen's checking out some areas as I am typing this up.
Any ideas??

Nice finds there Narrawa Q38 Well done. Always good to go back to old ground & find more gold. Makes you wonder how you missed them in the first place but as we know no one ever gets it all. Different size coil or even same coil on a different day. Different climatic conditions, different ground moisture or even ones self more mentaly ground balanced on a different day. Either way....good effort. Q27

Good luck out there

Hi, Jen,
I got nothing for the days efforts, but the women found the last little bit on this old patch. Moving on tomorrow to try another old patch.
Counting the days till we head sth for a well earned rest before the long haul back east.


Trading the red sand for white....and the 4500 for the coin detector. cheers

Try Alexander Bay east of town. Not. a nat park so dogs OK.
Also can take the Parmango road to Balladonia from there.
70k,s really bad but rest good.
Sharks hungry down here at the moment, might appreciate a bit of Eastern Stater...☺

cheers Now we can get out and into serious detecting now all the visitors have gone. Q39

Just joking Narrawa, we gave it away third week in September, mid 30's is not comfortable .
Hope your season tally keeps you smiling all the way to the beach and home.
Next year bring your woollies it will probably be still chilly at this time of the year.

Would have left a week ago but i got onto another ounce.  T18  
Just joking Narrawa, we gave it away third week in September, mid 30's is not comfortable .
Sitting here in the van being tossed about like a tinny in a cyclone with this wind aint comfortable either i can tell ya. T29
Hope your season tally keeps you smiling all the way to the beach and home.
Being a prospector, there is no tally good enough. But we'll take what it is we found this season with a smirk.T05
Next year bring your woollies it will probably be still chilly at this time of the year.
We felt the cold on first arrival for a few weeks, but it faded rapidly this season. T10  Electric blankets and halogen heater certainly makes staying in the outback pleasurable.T06

As for returning next season.??T10 Not with this technology...we'll wait for the next offering i think.

WA lives up to all expectations, this being our third trip....not quite as good as last season, but that was due to my research this time round. Still happy with what it was we found...but not as much as one would have liked.
Being a prospector, there is no amount that would quantify being happy. Razz Laughing

We will return with the next offering, just not with this one.

Its time to take in the sights as we head home.
We'll keep ya posted as we visit some a long the way. Laughing

Thx Mike,
We gave up detecting weeks ago and headed south....yep!!, we traded the red dirt for the white. Laughing

It was a good thing i happened along here, cause this rock would have ended up in the drink. affraid
Its all good now tho, just a little bend in the middle... nothing thats gunna subtract from its awe.Laughing

Now sometimes cameras have this uncanny ability to wrongfully report...not in this case, the water really is that color.

Lucky Bay WA.

We found it hard to pull ourselves away from the coastal areas, got the coin detectors out on the beaches in SA from Ceduna to Streaky Bay. Found a few old coins and generally had a good break from both detecting for gold and traveling.
Had a stay at Pildappa Rock before heading for home.....and we pulled in to the central west of NSW this arvo.

Got lots more pics of this that and the other, but not long home and im rodeo lagged. Laughing

To say I’m jealous Narrawa would be an understatement, not just of the gold but your boulder stopping power is outstanding, well done! T06 T06
