Should be some .. I'm up on the edge of Ventura/LA County off the 101, but LA is not that far away and some old places to hunt as well..

Lake Elsinore area here. Go to O.C. and San Diego Beaches and will dig anywhere in Western Riverside County. Where you are in Redlands there alot of old and historic homes there. Good luck!

Under the Community tab at the top there is a sub group called Social Groups.

Check that out for groups that might interest you. There are several California groups in there. To be honest, they don't get allot of action as most folks prefer to post in the regular forum areas.

Oh, and WELCOME to the Friendly!

Just hit up northern san bernardino and only came up with about 2.50 in clad. I'm starting to get frustrated with the coinmaster I know that it takes awhile to het used to a new detector and granted I have only used it twice but I didn't know it didn't come with tone discrimination when I bought it. I never seem to get a good reading with this it always jumps between targets such as 50 cent to nickle to one cent over and over as I go over the target, and sometimes it says its about 4" down so I dig and by time I'm 10" down and still have not found it I give up. I did not have that problem with my last detector. Well anyways thanks for listening to me vent anyone Herr in cali have any tips for the whites coinmaster?

That happens to me too. Dig all over and keep hearing a dang tone but unable to find anything. So hard to give up but don't want to dig to China.

Or I'll dig deep and find an Al screw cap from a 40oz or something.

All part of the game.

Welcome from northern Calif. and happy hunting!
