I occasionally check the posts here and on the todays finds forum to see what I've been missing. Being we are still in January, it looks like most of us are waiting until the weather get's a little warmer! I still have the passion to detect but it's kind of a challenge when the weather continues to be in the 20s and 30's here in Southern Utah (Cedar City area). I've got a week long reservation in Southern California next month and I'm so looking forward to that! Even 60F-70's F temps are warm to hot in comparison to here, so you'll catch me on the beach everyday detecting and breathing in the salt air! You always go hunting with high hopes but I've been detecting long enough to go with the intent to enjoy myself by enjoying the scenery, the sights and sounds (especially the beach)! and the people you meet as well. I hope your all enjoying your trips with your detecting gear and like many of you, I'm just waiting for some warmer weather and the ground thawing out here to be able to dig it!!
