So today I decided to head out to three older schools. Most of these were turn of the century. It turned out to be an interesting day.
Okay, so I continue to research and pick at sites. I found another interesting site today that is also on public land.
Rings are almost magical. I have to admit that I am kind of a ring fanatic. I love them. But I really love digging rings up – and I think you will too. So, let me tell you a few stories of ring finds.
So, I have been in full research mode, trying to get some new spots. Honestly, I really enjoy this part. Sometimes the recon can be a little brutal. I mean, you can hit spot after spot and not find a lot. But man, once you find just a few spots, it’s go time.
So, I had a really crappy hunt this past weekend. Even though it sucks, these kinds of hunts can actually be beneficial.
If you have been following this site at all, you know that I asked an acquaintance of mine to hunt two properties he owned. Well, I got to hunt those properties this past weekend. The results were not what I wanted.
I have been using the Garrett AT Pro heavily for a while now. As such, I wanted to give folks my review of this “all terrain” metal detector. Garrett has tried to make an all purpose detector, at a mid range price point – but has it succeeded? Let’s see.
We get into this hobby because we like adventure, history, and treasure. Now, that treasure can be purely historic treasure or it can be something with amazing monetary value. All of us dream of finding something amazing, but there are downsides.
It always amazes me how many people are shy about this hobby. I am not shy at all. Well, I can be shy in groups, but I’m not shy about letting people know that I love this hobby. This is why you shouldn’t be either.
Sooner or later you will hit a real slump when metal detecting. For silver lovers, this means that you won’t find silver for a while. For relic hunters, you just won’t be able to find those three ringers or plates. Whatever you’re hunting for, there are ways to cope with your slump.
