Hiking with the Wife

I finally got around to doing a Civil War relic only hunt. This time of year, most of the fields are not huntable, but I went to the woods with my wife and we found it to be not completely overgrown (other than some bloodthirsty blackberry bushes that were the embodiment of pure evil). We hiked 1.5 miles to our site and I was sporting my CTX-3030 in my hiking pack along with the Anderson travel shaft (see my review in the CTX forum). The air was hot and the finds were sparse, but we did manage to uncover a few relics. We were searching a Price campaign battle site for overshots from the battle. She is pretty awesome to go treasure hunting with me.

That's awesome! My wife never goes out with me. She does like to see what I've found! She'd rather go shopping where it's air conditioned!
