If Wal and Liz wrote a book, I would buy it. :)

Might be on the cards Rick. ;) ...getting to the pointy end of my fossicking career now and many of my friends are pestering me for my research notes and folders. Have thousands of GPS coordinates from around The Australian Gold and Gem Fields,... personally compiled mud maps, dozens of research folders,... pics from the late 60's to now,... major geological history of nearly every gold field in OZ,... tracks within goldfields that many would not try to access,... notes on my favourite fields,... best camping spots on most WA goldfields, where camping on the gold is favoured,... detector advice and settings,... safety advice and first aid.

I guess you can't take the info with you to the pearly gates, and if it can help the younger generation of fossickers then the time involved in compiling it into a book would be worth while. Already started compiling much of the information into a format where it can be transferred into a paperback so hopefully it will come to fruition.☺️. You can have the first copy Rick. ;)

Wow, that would be priceless mate. Seriously. Maybe even make some limited editions. I would be extremely honoured to buy one, let alone get the FIRST copy. (Would have to be signed by you too)
I too have started a small book on my adventures and finds. It would not even be close to a concise book, but just something I was leaving for the kids. And whoever would care to read it.

But seriously, your video's alone have helped me out so much in the past and still continue to do so.

Oh and what happened to the Doug Stone MAPS for Queensland? I had heard a rumour they were going to make one but then again, the recording of gold activities in Queensland's history was pretty ordinary compared to some of the other states.

I would totally buy the book as a novice myself and need to absorb as much of the correct information I can find
