    New Mexico being closest place of interest to me, what should I expect?
    What should I bring to camp there?
    Cold does not bother me, being that I came from the Great Lakes Ohio area and
    moved to Fort Worth Texas recently.
    Any information would be helpful.

    Thank You All

    Hi, I’m also interested in New Mexico but haven’t dug there yet. What kind of camping? What equipment will you be using?

    My experience so far is Arizona and California.

    I am a newbie to all of this.
    I just recently bought gold monster 1000, of course I have pans handheld detector as well.
    i have never been on any type of claim or river to pan for gold.
    figured that January, February, March would be good time to get in and around rocks.
    without getting snake bit don't really care about the rest.
    As far as camping I am probably doing a tent unless there is a motel near the claim.
    don't mind if the claim is hour or so to get there.

    Regarding NM claims, Greyback is awesome for it's closeness to the road. There is a motel in Williamsburg, NM right off of I25 and the Truth or Consequences exit. It is a 20 minute drive, give or take. The Rio Grande Motel. Also the claim has plenty of flat spots for setting up a camp.
    I'm also a newbie in the sense that I haven't been on many trips. But I've been bitten too!
    I haven't been out since late spring last year, can't quite remember.
    Avoiding SNAKES: the earlier you go the better.

    I'm always looking for prospecting buds. And I'm hoping to get to Greyback before March if lucky. My e-mail is:
