So, we finally got news that our long awaited Equinox's will be arriving at our doorsteps some time soon for some of us. How many of us can actually detect this time of year though? Our ground will be pretty tough up here, but I will try nonetheless. I really look forward to seeing what people are finding. Although impossible to prove, it is fun to think that we will probably be the first ones to find a "lets say a flying eagle cent" with an Equinox.

I can, it's going to be warm and sunny here in NM. It is extremely dry though, no rain in the last 3-4 months.

Keith, did you ever think about sneaking over to Matagorda Island and detect around the old AF base housing areas? I flew over there one time about 30 years ago and we went flounder gigging all night long. Only two planes there that night and it was quiet! Set up tents and camping gear right on the taxiway, about 100' foot from the inland side. Neat experience.

GKMAN, I got that same weather station for Christmas but I havent gotten a mount set up for it yet.

As for weather, if you can stand 30 mile an hour winds its detectable in my area although no moisture in 90+ days has left the ground really, really, really dry.

Hey Jason
Yeah I really like it. My mother bought one for my father and I. I found that my pool skimmer pole was an exact fit for the hole in the bottom of the unit. So I put it in there and extended it all the way and then ice climbed to the top of my roof which is about the recommended thirty feet. Mounted it on the toilet vent pipe. Climbing up there when it was covered in snow and ice was one of the stupider things I have done. Anyhow it has been working well.
Brr, sounds cold. How about along stream banks? Is it easier to dig for you there? I have had great luck digging colonial coins within steps of streams up here.

With some parts of Houston being demoed right now as a result of Harvey, there are hundreds of places to hunt, but not a great prospect of digging an old English penny. Maybe some older Spanish reales, 1700's, but I have only seen one 'large cent' dug here. A few 3 cent coins, mid 1800's coins, and I got a 1799 1/2 reale a few years ago. But, the weather is great at the moment. Mid 60's to mid 70's in the day.

Super old coins and relics are not the norm here. But, just the fact we can get out and hunt is awesome. Are you going to the Galveston Tamdc hunt ?

If you set it up just right you'll detect right through it. Haha

That's it I'm moving south

Ground is frozen here in Ct but I live next to the beaches so I can go pick coins up off the beach after every storm.

I just got done hunting to my neck in the Gulf...... SUNNY and smooth water. I unzipped my suit a couple of times because i got pretty warm. Started off at about 60 a 5 AM.

Southwest Washington here... nothing a little rain gear can't handle for year round hunting... especially with the waterproof Equinox :) Tim.

We are thawed out here in Idaho, at least in the valleys. the lake is still down, so lots of water hunts when it arrives.
