headed out to try and beat the higher winds that are supposed to arrive this afternoon. I have the Impact w/7" Concentric and CoRe w/'OOR' loaded up to check out a building tear-down site. It is good to be outfitted as I need. Still have to replace my Nokta Pinpointer and Killer-B 'Hornet' headphones but I had an older headphone set that will work for now.

I hope you're having huntable weather for early November.

And I thought all the 'snowbirds' loved to head south to escape the colder and whiter wintry weather ... and it's only early November!

Maybe the Phoenix/Mesa area in Arizona could provide a better weather escape from winter? Is your FJ that bold yellow color like David G.'s or something less eye-catching?

Best of success when you can get out and I look forward to seeing your recoveries.


We have to go where we can find stuff, which means we have to venture out of the coastal regions to the places fun to detect for relics and the older western frontier history we enjoy detecting.

I took my FJ to the WTHO event that David G. and I first met you at, it's the all black TRD edition, so it doesn't jump out quite like David's bumble bee :)

Funny thing, after I graduated high school, my girlfriend and I moved to Phoenix, AZ so I could start college. I remember the droves of snowbirds that flocked to Mesa, during the winter months you'd see more out of state license plates then AZ plates. On the weekends, we used to drive all over the state looking at ghost towns and other interesting western sites, but I didn't know anything about metal detecting back then (this was in the mid-late 1980's). I'm sure all of those sites have been hammered to death by now, but I can only imagine the treasures they held back then!
