Ground is dry, only a few drops fell and I thank only on my truck just to make it look filthy 🤪. We been running the Garrett's and planning the equipment for Next time. Probably going to do Rock crushing next visit. Others have been dry washing (Luck unknown) and running recirculating rigs (gold found). Water can be gotten at (RV pit stop) for 100gal /per.$5 or 1gal /per.25¢ .. and dry washer part's at Miner's Depot. We have had no luck with the detecting, probably going to fast or setting not right for the area.
If you visit LTVA La Posa South and pay for the two week stay ($40) or full season ($180), you can fill unlimited water for 'free' ;-) According to how much you need total it might be cheaper.
Blake at the Miner's Depot is very helpful with new and used items. I purchased a complete used Desert Fox Spiral Panning machine with the original instructions for a fair price.
I've been in the area for a couple of months, and no luck detecting. Of course I only have a Garrett 250 ACE and a Garrett Pinpointer. Sometime in the future I will invest in the Falcon MD 20 pinpointer. I recently used a friends with much success.
Heavy pans for you.
