    did some dirt fishing

    I got almost an hour of dirt fishing the other day and found just 25 cents in clad, but it really helped my feelings to get out. First time I could kneel on my knee that was repaired last year and it felt better. Hope to hit the water soon if I can get someone to watch my mother and brother...

    cherrypicking and met a new at/pro user yesterday.

    I've gone out cherry picking and found a few clad coins and some type of little toy I believe. only digging shallow targets since I can't squat or kneel down and popping them out with my probe or screwdriver. 28 minutes at the park and found 7 coins, 14 minutes in front of the post office and...

Found some coins and found out my less than a year old waders were cracked all over and I got super...

    photos from older post

    I posted awhile back that I received a 1943 war nickel in my change and a 1950 wheat penny and just couldn't seem to find time to take the photos and resize them for posting. Better late than ever. Definitely have to click on the photos to see them better. [attachment 356800...

    One word can make a difference

    I was doing some research at the library and reading old newspapers from 1894 and found one word that made a difference in my research that was significant. This particular spot was a major attraction in the early 1900's with fiddling contests, sings, 4th of July celebrations and other...

    30 minute hunt

    I've been trying to get out for about 30 minutes at the time and met another detector last Friday. We introduced ourselves and exchanged information and he told me his buddy also detects in the water. Found about 66 cents in clad that day, but glad I met someone in our hobby. Hoping to get a...
