When I talk to one of the old timers and try to get permission I always focus the conversation on History. I mention how I have found old thimbles at homesites I have detected and how kids these days would not even know what a thinmble was for and then the old timer mentions his mother spending many hours on the front porch doing the weekly sewing. I also always mention how much I love history and how the relics buried in the ground tell a story of how people lived back then. I also always offer to share my finds with the owner.
And on the other end of the spectrum, I have been chased right down the front walk while asking for permissions LOL!
