Hey guys, I've been to his home and he has 2 stage doors. He only opens the bottom for the vertically challenged like me. You know I should tell him when we walk side by side I hate that he pats the top of my head like a trained puppy dog. Trapper

I am in the same frozen boat, haven't seriously hunted since December. I have dug only 3 holes in the last 2 months. Luckily I have the Fire department to keep me busy with 2-6 calls a day. But yeah I am bored and reaaaallly want to detect.

Supposed to hit 60 in southern New England tomorrow and stay in the 40's for days!

The ground will thaw, I will be out this weekend.

But I do find it easier to post on Instagram (@diggingri) than here. I love seeing others' finds but I don't post here often anymore.

Yup Its been a tough start this year........a lot of single digits through Jan and still hanging in the teens....and we have had a pretty continuous snow cover.....
so so so depressing..........
I'm about an hour south of Buffalo.....typically we can expect a ton of precip off of lake Erie.....the last two winters were extremely mild so I was getting used to hunting a whole bunch in Jan and Feb, but not this year.......

I am dying here in Nebraska. Ground has been frozen solid all winter! I went out once and about broke my shovel. Looks like it will be March at least before I get my first actual hunt in...sigghhh. I am so far behind in the silver count for this year.

We hear you buddy! All kinds of records set in Wisconsin this winter,and not good ones! I havenít seen a stretch of BITTER cold as long as this EVER,and Iíve lived here all my life. People claiming global warming this and that...yes,that might be true if all other variables were static,but theyíre not. One little fart from the sun provides millions of times what we have ever burned,or if it dims one iota,the opposite. The weather pattern has had basically little to no upflow from the Gulf of Mexico,which is where any of our winter reprieves come from. Just the fact itís been SO cold means that itís going to take that much more time for the frost to get out of the ground,and I think youíre about right on the time frame,if not longer. I ran out of stuff to do around the house a month ago,so like you,Iím climbing the curtains! Itís been a NASTY winter so far,the roads around here are TOAST!
Hang in man,weíre all in the same frozen boat...

I can only get out every other week this winter due to home remodeling, but the weather here in Southern Oregon is great for detecting!

Hello To All,
I too am frozen fast here in Pennsylvania. I still have some snow cover and my ground is frozen solid. Just put a smaller coil on my AT Pro and I am going to try it in a well hunted outdoor flea market grounds. I may not be able to dig plugs yet but at least I will get a bit of time to learn more about my machine. I have about $60 in clads for the new year and a few silvers and one gold 10K class ring. I think I am a clad magnet, but I am still enjoying the ride. I have little to no competition here where I hunt but have yet to hit good older sites. I haven't hunted for almost a month so I am going to try this morning. I am going bonkers just watching videos and reading these posts. I need to get out and swing the detector. Good luck to all and I hope we all have a great year.

Thatís the way to do it Bubba! The more signals you can hear and the more swinging you do,the more opportunity you have to know the machine,obviously. We are all potentially clad magnets...and how to avoid being one is a topic starter if you want to start it.
In the meantime,good luck!

Smile Today's Results

Hello To All,
I tried my newest coil today for a bit at the flea market grounds. I had several penny signals, one quarter and three dime signals. I did dig the one dime signal and after much distress with the still frozen ground, I was able to find the dime. It turned out to be a 1960 Rosie. I shall return when the ground is thawed. The coin was about 4" deep and it took so serious effort to get down to it. I do have some older site permissions but need easier digging before I try. I am still learning my machine. I used my AT Pro which I do love for coin shooting. I am really looking forward to a good spring thaw. Good luck to all and hope you see some yellow in that hole, not liquid either !!!!

Smile HOO RAY !! Got to Hunt a bit today.

I finally got to hunt for a couple of hours today. The snow is gone and the ground is pretty well thawed. I hunted a small kiddy park and the perimeter of a little league field. I ended up with 14 quarters, 8 dimes, and 6 pennies, all clad of course. Most of the coins dug today were at least 4-5" deep. I really don't mind digging clads as I know somewhere this year I will finally hit some older sites as I do have some lined up. The temp actually hit 64 here this afternoon. If it doesn't rain too much tomorrow, I have a junior high school to hunt either Sat. or Sunday. I must say I did enjoy getting out today after a month of being a house roach. Hope everyone finally gets to do some MDing soon. Good luck to all.
