Yep these shows always seem to good to be true and the amazing thing is they always find good opal or gold on either show.  But thats the media these days, reality shows, really aren't telling the real story.

All I want to do is visit Cooper Pedy with an ultraviolet torch and pick up all the goodies at night. How hard can it be? :D :D :o ::)

I like this UV idea too, that is until an old bloke at my club told me that you need to watch out for the scorpions; they also glow under a UV light too.  :o ;D

At least it makes them easier to see at night.  You would have to be blind to accidentally sit on one while using a UV light. beers
