Default R5 on the Board!

Since Thanksgiving, I've found $4.90 in our area. To h3ll with that! I knew storms were coming from the north and got up early to give myself more time at a beach to the south. First target... THERE YOU ARE! And then, I hit more clad than I have in the last six weeks! I'm goin' back tomorrow!

$5.15 clad and the smallest AU I've found. Who said the Excal doesn't hit small gold?! At 0.7g, this 14k baby toe ring comes in at... wait for it... $15.42!

The Excal and the CZ will hit rings that small with no problem. It is the small links they have problems with. Glad you got on the board. I hope I can soon.

I think everyone in here has that I wish dream, some hunters it takes longer then others.
The key here is you got to get out there, "you got to be in it .... to win it!"

Nice find, my days coming.

Yeah I know the Excalibur is okay until below .4 grams. Unless its got a crack. Then all bets are off.

Humph... would you please tell the Raiders defense this?

I've been pretty fortunate to find gold pretty early in the season... yes, winter is my MD season.

Hope you don't have to suffer through Jack Del Rio as long as the Jags did?

I was hoping your Raiders would go further in the playoffs, But when Carr went down...Hope he heals up for next year.
Sincerely,
A Patriots fan.
