Had taken down this site and my blog for a couple of days, and pondered the pro’s and con’s of continuing both. I enjoy staying in touch with a lot of my old friends, but often find myself struggling to come up with anything new or anything of interest. I also don’t get out detecting much anymore, and that doesn’t help the situation.
In any case I decided to continue entertaining you with my banter (polite word for BS), and thank those of you who emailed, asking why the sites were down and encouraging me to continue on with them….
A FEW OLD CELLAR HOLE FINDS
My friend Dave Wise (a.k.a. Heavymetalnut on forums) from back in “Yankee” land (Connecticut) has been posting a lot of his finds and videos on Facebook, and I am envious (as well as pissed). If I ever see him again I am going to cut the wires to his coil.
When I look at the videos I remember areas, homesites, cellar holes exactly like those shown. I know there are probably a few around me here, but so far I have not found them. Something about those leaf covered, wooded areas, loamy soils that I miss. Here are a few videos that Dave and his hunting partner Todd Hiltz shared on YouTube….
AND FROM THE JERSEY SHORE SURF AND BEACH HUNTERS
Neat video put together by Bill Ratpack, member of Brian Mayer’s Jersey Shore Beach & Surf Hunters group on Facebook. If you do any water hunting at all, do your self a favor and look them up. Lots of great information shared there. Brian is also a member of the South Jersey Metal Detecting Club.
CONTEST VIA JOHN WINTER
Interesting contest on John Winter’s blog……give it a look see, and a guess at the same time.
