Well yesterday was one of those days where I woke up hurting, went out detecting and came home hurting even more. I did find coins….eighty five cents in clad! Based on time spent, gas used, battery drainage that comes out to about minus a buck fifty an hour, not including the sore back, feet and necessary nap.
So if you are wanting to see a photo or video of Dallas Dick’s Sunday morning adventure, forget about it!
SO WHERE DO I DETECT?
You all should know by now that I am a coin hunter. It’s what got me started in this pastime, and it’s what keeps me going now, albeit at much slower pace. I don’t think I will ever get over the excitement of seeing that silver dime or quarter after removing a plug.
I’ve had a couple of people ask me where I go when I detect and my answer is usually “down the road a piece”. You see I don’t like to share this information for one reason….I don’t want YOU find MY coins. It is what it is my friend, and I am pretty sure you understand.
Now having said that I will throw a couple of things at you from my “Coin Hunting in Depth” book and you can take them for what they’re worth.
The following pretty much deals with old grove areas but I will talk more about a few of my other favorites in future updates (good things come to those who wait…LOL).
Just got a short email from John Howland, who is spending a week long holiday in Cornwall, and he’s claims to be having one helluva time. I can just imagine….
