So yesterday I had a little time and decided to try a few new spots. One of which was going to be a water hunt. There were surprises at every turn – I tell ya!
So, the first site had a few ballfields and I found out that they hold carnivals there. Man, it took me a while to even find this spot. So, I headed out with the highest hopes. You just have to believe. I arrived at the site and got right to it. I found that they had put a new playground over part of the ballfield. How dare they? Didn’t they know I was coming?
So, I zigged and I zagged. All I got for my efforts was some change. I wasn’t getting any deep signals. So, what do we deduce? We deduce that either the site has been absolutely pounded or it has been dramatically altered. So, I hunted around the entire site. Everywhere was the same story. I didn’t find any mixing of the strata so I deduced that it was absolutely hammered. I could be wrong though. So, I moved onto my next site – freshwater.
I drove about 35 minutes further out to the next site. I drove up and eyed the beach and was raring to go. I opened the trunk and then it dawned on me. In all my excitement I had forgotten to pack my sand scoop. Holy cow! I just sort of sat there dumbfounded. And then I laughed really hard. It was all I could do. Oh well, onto a backup site that has given up silver.
I moved out of there and drove a while to a set of ballfields that has really produced for me. But, as I drove into the parking lot, lots of baseball players came into view. Man, you have to be kidding me! Now I wasn’t laughing. Gosh, I couldn’t win today. So I moved onto another spot that has produced silver.
Well, I hammered this place. I did turn up some quarters that were close on the year, but no luck. Well, I figured my day was done, but decided to rehit the tot lot that I’ve done before. I moved around the front and got a 94 reading that was bouncing to 99. “Well, here comes a can,” I muttered to myself. I dug the hole and saw something crazy shiny. “What the heck?” I thought it was a token or something. But then I picked it up and noticed how heavy it was and saw the cool reeded edge. And then I saw the reverse “One Dollar.” “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh. You have got to be kidding me!”
Nope, it was not a joke, I had just dug my first silver dollar. How the heck that ended up there, I have no idea. That’s one pretty coin!
