Keywords…

I know most all of you use Google to research and find new places to detect. It is without a doubt the best search engine out there.  I am also guessing you pretty much do what I do and that is type in the name of my town, county or state and then add keywords like schools, churches, parks, history, etc..  Anyway let me suggest a few more words you might try.  Continue reading
