So, brand new to this gold thing but have to say I’ve definitely got the fever! Over the next 12 months I’m aiming to (hopefully) pan enough gold for the wedding rings I’ll be needing for myself and future wifey. I’m not so far from the Louise and New Creek fossicking area’s and plan to be in there regularly over the next 12 months or so. Having done a bit of research both within this group and me good mate Marty, I’ve ordered a pro gold panning kit and EZY sluice, the other “hardware” I’ve already got.
Anyway, enough blather, onto my question. Seems to me that I’ll be spending a lot of time IN the creek and I’m thinking a secondhand wetsuit could be the go for keeping me warm, well at least my legs, if I have to buy a full wetsuit am thinking I’ll reduce it to leggings only. What do you lot reckon? It’s quite a hike into my chosen spots which I reccied yesterday so I’m thinking some tramping boots will be suitable to get me in, do the mahi and then get me out again, any wisdom and tips on this would be well appreciated.
