    as time goes by... the gold edition

    It was 50 years ago, today that the young couple walked, with unsteady feet and uncertain hearts , down the aisle towards their future together. Life was not to be an easy start for them; both sets of parents opposed the union. He had no job, nor any immediate prospects. She did odd gardening...

    A good day by almost any standard

    Decided to try a new site.. I have been detecting on one side of the river and could see the old town on the other side.. I had tried to get there in times past but never could find the exact route to get there.. This sign did not help either.. :lol: [attachment 328563 20160322_104559.jpg] But...

    Certainly not a coin that one would be expected to find up here..

    Managed to get out again today.. albeit only for an hour or so.. But in the end, it was worth it.. The Deus is magnificent in heavy trash I was working one of my drowned town sites and searching in the fields of nails.. This little beauty showed up...a 1781 Ein Kreutzer from Vienna Austria...

    Here is an usual problem..

    A friend just bought a Deus.. and has been getting frustrated with it. I have walked her through a few settings, etc... ones that have worked for me.... But in the end, I think her problem lies elsewhere. She texted me this morning with this statement..'I do have a question for you this mornng...

    This is a well travelled baggage tag..

    I decided to try an old ghost town in the wilds of my home province of British Columbia.. There was still some snow ( I was above the 6000 foot mark after all).. but in places, the sun had removed the white covering. And one of the finds was this Santa Fe Route baggage claim tag..

    Found in an old ghost town in B.C.

    But I have no idea of what it might be. It is a pin that is about 3 inches long.. Made of brass [attachment 313011 LBCSandon.jpg] Many thanks Micheal

    Not as good as my last post... But I still like it!!!!

    Back to my haunts yesterday.. Not as good as my last hunt.... but the knee is still playing havoc with me.. so I can only hunt for an hour or so.. But a few pennies (and the age indicate that there must be silver around), A WW1 service pin and a nice boys and girls competition 1914 pin make for...

    Got my fix today in a BIG way.. But it was frustrating

    I had a knee operation 11 days ago.. frustration abounds at being confined to the house. My wife is doing all the farm chores.. But today, she wrapped the leg up nice and snug and I went out to my favourite beach for a bit less than an hour..I felt that I should at least sort of care for the...

    Slowly coming along with the Deus..

    And one day I will really have a handle on it.. But I am learning the sounds, and fiddling with settings to get the best performance. Out to my old drowned town yesterday..managed one broken gold ring, a silver handle from a mirror(?), a rather cool pin (I will tumble that today).. a ceramic...

    Has any one used the Goldmaxx Power..

    I know that XP makes it.. I am in the market for a new machine... and, to be fair, I am not a meter type of person. Just wondering how the two compare Many thanks Micheal

    Test for Platinum

    I went down to our drowned town today.. and all in all, had a pretty good day. The lake is coming up .... so I have to get the detecting in while I can. I found a couple of new foundations and started to slowly work around the nails and debris. I did manage 8 pennies, one large cent, a silver...

    So... here is what I did two days back..

    It took pretty much all day to haul him out (only 400 yards)... and then skin him..... but there is a heap of dinners there. On the hook, there is 684 pounds [attachment 213940 moose9.jpg] [attachment 213941 moose19.jpg] Fair winds Micheal

    Memories of Maui.. part three..

    Days four and Five were pretty much preoccupied with getting ready for the wedding and then going to the wedding. Now I realize that other peoples' wedding can be pretty much of a bore... but I will say this.... It was the absolute best site I have ever seen for a wedding. We went to a place...

    Memories of Maui.. Part two

    On day three, my son had a great time planned for the both of us. I had to be ready to go by 6:00 A.M. [like that is a problem for me.. I am up at 4:30 - 5:00 every morning anyway]. He came in to the condo and we loaded up the diving gear.. A quick brekkie and David, Denise and I were on the...

    Memories of Maui.. Part one

    We left Vancouver on the 6:45 pm flight... and arrived in Kapului, Maui at 9:45 local time. {In actual fact that would extrapolate to 12:45 B.C. time}.The first thing that we noticed was that wonderful salt air smell. The memories it brought back........ I was immediately in heaven. But we then...
