Hi - I am Goldseeker and I live in:
Adelaide, South Australia - down under.
Aged 57 with my birthday being 12th November.
I am married with 2 children (32F) and (30M) and 4 grandchildren.
My previous job was an electoral assistant for 6 years to a former Federal Member of Parliament, who was also a Junior Minister and prior to that I was the liaison officer to the State Premier.
I have also worked as a toolmaker/toolroom machinist for General Motors Holdens for 17 years.
At the moment I am 'between jobs.
I spent most of 1963 and 1964 on a working holiday in New Zealand.
I studied on a part time basis at Flinders University between 1976 and 1987- gaining two degrees with majors in Economic History, Politics and Earth Sciences.
I have just finished a course on how to cut and polish opals - something I did back in 1974/75 - one never knows where it might lead?
I hope to make and sell enough to be able to pay for a trip to the US of A.
Over the previous ten years or so I have made a number of trips to the Victorian Gold Fields with my metal detector and with the help of a mate from NZ, together we have found over 100 gold nuggets.
My other interests include cricket, reading about the mysterious, economic history, stamp collecting and anything to do with rocks?
