A nomad at heart, Lou is happiest in the Arizona hills, hunting for gold. He has been traveling since he was 14 years old when he left home in Philadelphia, eventually ending up in Western Arizona. For the last 15 years,
Lou has been exploring all those hills and valleys, making him a valuable resource as a guide in the area.
Lou got the gold bug when he was camping with his son 18 years ago. There he met Bill Southern, and the two became prospecting friends. Soon after, Lou bought his first Gold Bug, and those two learned a lot about nugget hunting and prospecting in those hills together. Bob Mote and Lou began their friendship at an outing in Gold Basin 10 years ago. Every winter, they team up and work the claims, then pop down to the local tavern for dinner and to give the bartenders a bad time.
Lou offers his services by organizing outings and tours for friends and customers of Northwest Detector Sales. When he isn’t prospecting, he is a computer whiz, and he really enjoys photography, so we can look forward to more great photographs from Lou in the future. If you need to get a hold of him, and his cell phone is out of range, you can probably find him dry washing on our claim in the Bradshaw Mountains.
So the question is, while detecting together, who do you think finds more gold nuggets in the field, Lou or Bob? [Hint: not available at this time]
