    I'm going to take a camping trip soon in the hopes of finding some gold while capturing the monsoon storms. Do we have anything good in New Mexico? What about Colorado? Maybe Arizona for meteorite detecting. I'm a new GPAA member and would love to meet some of you guys. I have a super sluice and two detectors so I'm geared well for this. I just need to find the best claims to visit. I'd love to find more than just river gold maybe even a small nugget. I have lots of river gold but its all fine and will need to be melted down into something bigger. Any advice on good GPAA claims is greatly appreciated.

    I'm nugget shooting in AZ. I'm new to the GPAA and I've only been to the first two sites listed in Pima County in the online guide. I don't know how good the gold is, haven't found any yet. But if you're looking for lead or brass nuggets they are plentiful. You could probably grab a pound a day easily without digging - 5x that if you've go under the surface. It won't make you rich, but it might pay for the gas. :)

    They're both on BLM land and have lots of camping spots around. The Friendship/Maybe claims you can easily drive an RV onto and camp right there. The Golden Tattoo group you'd have to camp on the edge of. The roads into the middle are 4WD.

    Thanks Joe, when you mention 4WD would a high clearance 2012 Nissan Xterra be able to handle this? It is high profile with off roading tires but Its not 4 wheel drive though.
