Even worst if you weren't looking and a 2 ounce nugget slipped through the holes in your colander! You would never forgive yourself?
As for checking tyre tread, how about mud flaps with catchment built in! Bye!

You've spent 6 months panning 1/2oz of fine gold only to drop the glass container on a rock causing it to break in a running stream.

I looked in the microwave oven and saw a round nugget finder spoked coil in stead of the rotisserie plate.I think this hobbie is getting the better of me.

Goldstalker, that's even better than the mud flap idea? Back home at the end of your gold driving trip, park the car over the specially designed 15X6 foot gold retention pan and hose your car from the inside! Hmm

Gday

When you are on a cruise ship to Bali for twelve days and all you can think about is you would rather be in the bush prospecting. Sad

Or when you get married on the weekend and then go bush Monday for two weeks with the boys, still copping it about that one Laughing

I must have other attributes that she likes cyclops

cheers

Or when your wife falls over in the diggings and you bend down a pick up a chunck of Quartz instead of her....

Or everytime you drive through a goldfield you turn to look at an interesting roadside cutting and nearly drive into oncomming traffic or off the road......

this is some funny stuff lol

Your raking leaves with a headset on!

Digging the wife a garden and using a miners pick instead of a digging fork.

you wish the lawnmower was a coilteck coil that big.

everytime you hear the word "mine" you immediatley think of your minelab detector

When driving your eyes are focused on soil, road cuttings, "wonder if theres gold there!"

shaking another prospectors hand and you shake left to right in a slow motion rather than up and down, thinking "oh yeah hes got a 10 ouncer in his pocket for sure!"

....When ya sweep the floor in a sidways motion and then pan off the contents of the dustpan.

.....When ya take the kids to the park but ya won't let them play until you have detected the area thoroughly.

....When ya sieve the contents of the vaccuum cleaner.

....When ya search pot holes in the road for the odd chance...

....When ya set up camp and dig a hole for the camp dunny cause the missus is bustin, but have to detect the hole for gold nuggets first.

You know it's bad when you know there's little to no gold in a stream, But you still pan anyway for 2 dozen specs with a total value of a buck!

You pan during your lunch break instead of eating at work.
Glad i am not the only one who checks road cuttings, I thought i was weird ..ffhheww Glad i am not...
You swing in the rain, with a tick in your eye and a snake at your feet, and only worry if water is getting into the detector.
Then you don the headlamp for a night swing because you didnt get anything that day, become disorientated in the dark, and wonder how long its going to be until the sun comes up..
Think about the water filtration systems for our drinking water and wonder where the concentrates are poured.
Look for where the beach scraper on the back of the tractor dumps his waste.
Think about cleaning out the old dentists "S" bend.
This topic will never end, wondering how much gold is in the PC i am typing on...
25 tonne of mobile phones = 10 kilo of 22 ct gold.
we are surrounded by it, and its still hard to find....
