As nice as it would be to jump out of your car in the k'mart car park and trip over a nugget its just not ever going to happen, much like prospecting just off the road on the whyte and savage rivers, everyone has done that, but head 23klms up a river, set up camp, spend a day hiking through some of the densest bushland you have ever seen and you get to places that you know very few have ever been and those that have, didn't come packing the technology we have today. Just my take on things of course.
Well you summed up my Tassie prospecting experience so far. Dense bush and nothing left for the feint hearted, but I agree, plenty left for the brave and curious. Even the old timers got turned back by the Tassie bush now and then, fortune favours the brave Id say.
