Nice work all around! Love those gold finds too! Thats quite a nice stack there for a silver hunter...I see you hunt about any interesting signal though, and you got some interesting finds there!...Sweet!

Trust me, it's not as easy as one might think in California. How many others do you see posting this much from here and believe me probably more detectorists here than most places.

I didn't mean to imply the hunting was easy, I was simply envious of having such silver fertile grounds. I applaud your effort no doubts here!
