    Great video just thought I might watch it again remember all the fun we had it was a great trip hopefully this trip is even better

  2. Jim Meyer on June 5, 2023 at 8:28 am

    You teach me much. Here’s a little in return. Turn your chairs over when you aren’t sitting in them. That keeps the snow or rain away from your Butte !

    Love the desert, headed to Arizona in 2 weeks to do some detecting, don’t feel to bad Gary, it happens, I’ve lost 4 snuffers over the years, one was a pretty painful loss, several grams

  10. Old School on June 5, 2023 at 8:39 am

    Hello Gary. I watch your videos and I love how you do it. I found your channel because I was looking for information about the SDC 2300.
    I see that you still use this metal detector. Could you please tell me if this is worth the money or now after some experience with this device you would choose something else for the same money?
    I used only X-terra 705 and now I want to buy something more serious.
    I like the SDC 2300 because it is foldable and waterproof. I also considered the Garrett ATX, but for some reason I like the SDC 2300 better even though I haven’t used any of them.
    Perhaps there is some similar device that is better than these two?
    Could you advise something when buying an SDC 2300? I heard there are improved versions. Is this true and which version is better? I will appreciate any advice.

    Hi Gary, Thanks for such great videos highlighting the technics that you use. My wife and I enjoy tremendously the videos that you post.

    That being said I am going to purchase a metal detector and based on what I have read and you have shown, the Minelab SDC2300 seems to be a great all around detector. What other accessories would you recommend purchasing for the SDC2300? Headset, coils etc Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Keep those videos coming. They are super informative and very interesting.

  12. Norden on June 5, 2023 at 8:39 am

    Awesome video Gary! Thanks for sharing. I would be completely lost mining in that area. Take care, God bless.

  13. Rob Klein on June 5, 2023 at 8:39 am

    Thanks Gary. I’m sitting here at home shivering and aching all over with a flu bug or maybe covid. But watching your video made me smile for twenty minutes and forget the rest. Maybe in a week I can get back to detecting here in Ontario. Stay safe.

  14. Jack Daniel. on June 5, 2023 at 8:40 am

    You need a pin pointer

  15. Miketheminer on June 5, 2023 at 8:40 am

    A little hint next time. Park the trucks in a v and put bags under them to block wind from camp. It helps a ton. I bring extra tarps for that occasion

  16. Chris Strobel on June 5, 2023 at 8:40 am

    Gary in the future you should write your name and address on your nugget bottles with a sharpie so if you loose em and somebody finds em they can mail em back to ya 🙄 Seriously though that’s a bummer, I know the feeling, I left a plastic vial with my test nugget in it on a rock in the Mojave as I went chasing a tarantula, by the time I got bored with the tarantula I’d forgotten about the test nugget bottle and only remembered I’d left it on a rock a couple hours later when I needed it again .. never did find it .. but I’m hoping another prospector eventually found it and made his day. 🤠👍

  17. Suzan Kamel on June 5, 2023 at 8:42 am

    Where’s Jeff, you must be missing his jokes

  18. BlackLabel on the Bedrocks on June 5, 2023 at 8:42 am

    Hi Gary,
    Great location but ugly weather (man, it’s summer).
    Nice gold you found but could be more (I used to see more from you). Many thanks for sharing this adventure. Too bad you lost your jar.
    Btw: Happy birthday belated!
    Best regards from Germany!

  19. Hans Hart on June 5, 2023 at 8:43 am

    Bullets are plentiful in the desert 🌵 But if there is a nugget, Gary will find it.

  20. West Coast Gold Prospecting on June 5, 2023 at 8:44 am

    That looked like a blast. Sorry you lost the metal but glad you had fun. Good job Gary 👌👊

  21. ferd burphel on June 5, 2023 at 8:44 am

    Great trip! That’s one vast thirsty looking place! The video doesn’t convey how the cold and wind felt. Nothing like dressing for ice fishing to go to bed. Sorry you lost your gold…did you look on Google earth?

  22. Randy Thomas on June 5, 2023 at 8:46 am

    Sure would love to spend a week there.

  23. Mike Blair on June 5, 2023 at 8:46 am

    Hey Garry, what kinda tent was that and what did it cost ya? That’s my burning question.
    My father and I did a lot of prospecting in the high desert, mainly for load deposits, but breaking out the detectors is a lot of fun. And it’ll snow any time of year. Fun watching your video. Thanx

  24. Gazza Stryker on June 5, 2023 at 8:48 am

    💯Cool gold camping trip, weird weather, oh man that stinks you lost that bottle, Just ordered some tools from you’re web page the other day, looking forward on using them here in the Green mountains! Semper Fi!

  25. Edward Amodei on June 5, 2023 at 8:51 am

    You in rye patch?

  26. Mayhem Prospecting on June 5, 2023 at 8:53 am

    In the outdoors with the boys can never go wrong! Thanks for sharing Gary, excited to see you again at the nugget hunt right around the corner! Hope all is well brother

  27. WYLD mountain on June 5, 2023 at 8:57 am

    looks like pershing county that you be in

  28. Golden Nuggs on June 5, 2023 at 8:58 am

    Awesome video, mad journey right from the begining to the end! Oh yer, did anyone else see the giant gorilla at 0:49 – 0:50? ⛏😎

  29. Bee4PC goldrule. on June 5, 2023 at 9:00 am

    Cheaper to buy nuggets on ebay.

  30. Land of Saguaros on June 5, 2023 at 9:02 am

    You’re a great sport Gary. You didn’t even mention what your total might have been including the gold that you lost. Bummer on that though, but I’ll bet it will never happen again!

  31. Joel Glover on June 5, 2023 at 9:03 am

    Its about time with your mates and finding new amazing places. Thanks again for all your knowledge on here Gary. Keep it on the up and up!

  32. Cabin Vibes Ebay Store on June 5, 2023 at 9:04 am

    New sub ! Liked ✌️🙂🤯

  33. JED EYE on June 5, 2023 at 9:05 am

    your videos are on my top favorite on YT this year, the first one I ever watched was actually you out on the boat fishing… 👍 have much enjoyed all your content.

  34. Rob Klein on June 5, 2023 at 9:09 am

    Hi guys. A question for the group. We all know that the further the gold travels down a river the smaller the pieces get and the more rounded they get. But nobody ever says how far is far. Is the larger gold found in the first 1000 feet from source or the first ten miles from source? I just need to know approximately as I intend to do some detecting downstream from a side moraine left by a glacier. The moraine is only about a thousand feet wide and runs for several miles with streams and a few rivers cutting through it. Thx for any expert opinions given.

  35. Jim V. on June 5, 2023 at 9:11 am

    So….your daughter comes by losing gold honestly…

  36. Steve Grant on June 5, 2023 at 9:14 am

    Thanks for taking us along on your trip. Not someplace I’ve ever been. Looks amazing.

  37. Robert Reynolds on June 5, 2023 at 9:16 am

    Nice job Gary, looked like a lot of fun with you boys.

  38. Gary Rathbone on June 5, 2023 at 9:16 am

    Did ya check under your tent?

  39. Busted Knuckles Prospecting on June 5, 2023 at 9:18 am

    I’ve got to say my friend, that intro was awesome 😎

  40. William Brink on June 5, 2023 at 9:18 am

    Great video. Looks like you had a blast. I really liked the little round white balls that were jumping into your scoop right before lunch.

  41. John Saucerhunter on June 5, 2023 at 9:18 am

    So envious of you Gary and friends… Would love to get away and just camp .

  42. UWill NevahNo on June 5, 2023 at 9:18 am

    Is it possible to save time by identifying iron targets prior to all the digging and sifting by sweeping the location w/a magnet?

  43. SECRET CREEK PROSPECTING on June 5, 2023 at 9:19 am

    Well I enjoyed your adventure. Sorry to hear about your nugget bottle. Very appreciative of you sharing your fun and excitement with us. Thank you Gary

  44. shucks ma on June 5, 2023 at 9:19 am

    Are you trying to show us what a waist of time it is to go to Nevada .

  45. Dodger Blue on June 5, 2023 at 9:22 am

    Well Gary that half ounce nugget that you lost in your gold bottle would have made you the winner far and away. Well you will pick it up next time. It looks like a great time was had by all.

  46. Kurt AK on June 5, 2023 at 9:25 am

    Great adventure Gary….Much appreciated.

  47. Pat Hoover on June 5, 2023 at 9:25 am

    Are you quite sure you’re in Nevada, and not ohio, lol.. that’s usually about all I find, is iron.

  48. Two Dudes One Dredge Mining on June 5, 2023 at 9:26 am

    Beautiful country. I can’t wait to get down to the lower 48 and try some different types of prospecting.

  49. Josh Ortiz on June 5, 2023 at 9:26 am

    Looks like it was a cold but fun trip!!! Really does suck that you lost your jar.

  50. MarvUSA on June 5, 2023 at 9:27 am
