Wow, he probably gets free detectors for life from Minelab.

Will do. August is more or less full of things going on, and then my son starts school later this month. He has a week off in late October, so that might be a possibility.

Right now I'm leaning towards a commercial outfit out of Jamestown, CA, and I think they run off their own claim, so we'd have to see if they allow outside equipment to be brought in. No mater what, I'm sure we could find some public, claim-free land somewhere.


SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.
