    Who wants some of this - -

    Rain, that is :) We got 2 3/4 inches in 1 hour today. Now we have received over 8 inches for August so far. It will take a week to dry enough to detect, And by then it will probably rain again. On the positive side my wife & I sure did enjoy watching it rain today. Sure does beat the desert...

    Pushing the package

    From my 35 years detecting experience it seems like the difference between the successful detectorist and the not so successful one is experimentation . After all these years swinging I am still experimenting with things surrounding our hobby. Things to consider : A. What techniques will you...

    Finally some gold

    Went along a sidewalk doing the grass this morning. Not a whole lot of coins but the 14 k ring makes up for it. The 2 lower tokens are from the Mardi Gras parades they have here each year. They are aluminum and not valuable. The grass strips I was doing are along a popular parade route...

    Finally got out

    After the holiday, cold weather, rains, etc I finally got out today. I dug these 25 coins, flame job truck & a pin star of some kind. I needed to get out swinging to keep my old body in detecting shape. Hope all you can get out before deep winter sets in. Steve in so la

    Missing digs

    Thinking about missed places reminded me of a few overlooked places I have done. I was doing a CW site and a tree had a real low hanging branch. I wondered if others had passed it by as too much trouble to get down under it. I did it & was rewarded with 2 eagle buttons. Another school yard had...

    Right out of the box

    Hit a frequently used play area , dug 5 pennies, a dump truck & a 10K gold ring that must have been dropped the day it was bought. It's in perfect condition, no scratches or such. It's too big for my finger. What a thrill to pop it up ! Steve in so la

    CW bullets

    Last couple CW digs

    I hit a CW site two times this last 5 days & dug these items plus some junk. 5 round balls, a 3 ringer, a clock gear, some rivets and some porcelain buttons. Obviously these buttons were eyeball finds. Another advantage of not watching a meter or graph. Steve in so la

    Still adding on -

    I'm still adding junk rings to my two "rope o rings". I counted up about 7-8 years ago and had over 700 - maybe eight hundred or so by now. I've been digging over 35 years now . One time I went through them all carefully & discovered a gold one. Steve in so la

    A site you may not have thought to detect -

    I used to live in another state that had Indian reservations . Among the casinos & all they usually have a community center for the tribe. At this one site I drove around & saw a bunch of playground equipment, the usual tot lot stuff. A tribal policeman was sitting in his car nearby so I asked...

    All that glitters -

    Here's a display of stamped gold I dug over the years. Every piece is stamped 10k or 14K but officially discredited to junk metal.. Better be sure of your gold finds - or your future purchases. Steve in so la

    CW digs & displaying

    Yesterday I hit a CW camp site, dug a bunch of junk but did get a few goodies before I was swamped by the humidity & heat :(. The one ringer bullet is a Colt 44, top right hand is a 54 rifle round ball while the top middle ball is a 30 cal revolver. Ceramic doll's leg and some porcelain...
