Default 2 Gold - 2 Silver - Lots of Fun !!

Well, I finally was able to get in a couple of good hunts. I have not posted in quite some time....just a lot going on, so my hunting has been very limited.

Man do I love when the weather changes here in So. Cal. Yes....fresh drop hunting in the summer is fun, but when the storms start in late November to early December, that is when hunting can be at its best.

With that said, the last several days have been blowing, rainy and cold. My lazy side would have said that I would stay home and stay dry. My "pirate" side said go out there and brave the cold and see if there are a few goodies to be found !!

What you see is from two hunts over the last few days. Some decent clad, a couple of silvers and a couple of gold. The small 10k ring with the white stone weighs in at 1.78g. The larger plain band 14k ring weighs in at 5.20g.

Good Luck....Be Safe....Jeff.

I can't remember the last time I found gold and silver by sitting on the couch watching TV !!!!
