 I haven't been posting like I should, now that I'm retired I don't go out as much.  I have found some nice things can't believe this weather - detecting in December.    I'm going to have to do a better job on updating the blog.

 Saturday my friend and I hit the woods and had a very good day with both of us finding silver and lots of wheat pennies.  The we hit some garage sales.

Sunday I went to a park for a couple of hours and found my first gold in quite a while.  It's a very small 14k ring weighing about 1.86 grams.   I usually don't dig 13 on the equinox because it's mostly pull tabs but I'm glad I dug this.

 A friend and I managed to get out into the woods this past weekend where I found a Roosevelt dime, V and buffalo nickel along with a couple of wheat pennies.  Detecting in the woods now is easy since there is no growth yet from weeds and the bugs are at a minimum.  

 We're going to try it again this coming weekend.

I had a chance to get out this past weekend and hit the woods with a friend.  I did manage to find this token but can't find any history on it.   If any one knows what this is - please let me know.

 Tomorrow is my last day of work then I'm retired for good.  I bought a magnet fishing kit last year and I plan on using it this spring once the weather breaks.  Looking forward to see what goodies I can find.

 It's been a while as you know from my last post - my son gave me his old but newer tower to me and I'm just now getting back to blogging.  

I've have been out some but lately the weather has turned back to winter.  Next week is my last work week then I'm retired so I will be getting out a lot more once the weather breaks.  Plus now that I have finally found all my info for the blog.

So I am back and hopefully this year I can put a lot of pictures of my finds.  Happy hunting to all!!

Silver Saturday

It's been a while since my last post - haven't gone out much because of the weather but I have found a few silver and older pennies.  
I did manage a mercury dime yesterday and an Indian head penny.   The merc is my second silver for the year.  Hopefully after this weekend I can get out more.  I am retired now and work part time so I should be using that time to detect during the week.
