Hello everyone my name is Mike. I have yet to ever go out looking for gold but think it sounds like a lot of fun. My wife, kid & I are new to the area and love camping. I always thought it would be something fun for us to do as we are outside kind of people. Maybe being new to this will bring me some luck? LOL Anyway I would like to go to your next meeting but a little confused as to the exact location and time. Is it at 6:30 or 7pm for the meeting? I work a lot M-F but have weekends off and hope to spend those weekends finding some gold. Can't wait to meet you guys & go out looking for gold soon. Not 100% how far away any place to look for gold is from where I live. If anyone can give me an idea how far away I'd be traveling that would be great.

I live out in Vallejo

Mike

I'll need to take the day (16th) off from work, but I'm sure that won't be an issue. All I have is my gold pan, shovel, bucket & lots of enthusiasm..... LOL (Yep the new guy) Sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

I will loan you everything you need; No charge, you pick it up and return it to Clayton. You have to post a pic or two and write a short description for this and the Meetup Forum. OK?

Thanks Pucky, will you be at the meeting on the 7th? I'm not sure what I'll need but I was just going to take a pan for my first time out and kind of watch & help out to see how you guys do it. For me the first trip I was hopeing to use it mainly for learning. I know each trip I'll learn but being new I don't want to do something wrong. Hopefully someone will give me a few pointers :)

I do not know yet about the meeting as I had surgery yesterday and am to take it really easy for 2 weeks; I think you might benefit by watching some of HurtHawks Video's; Then there is youtube search for anything you desire; From sluicing and panning to whatever; Any questions you may call at a reasonable hour

All I had a was a pan for our first 4 trips.  Mostly stood around and watched the pro's.  It also gives you the opportunity to find out which equipment you need, before spending lots of money on gear you might not like.
