Default I Forced Myself To Go Detecting Today

With all the rock hard ground, hot humid weather and a sore knee it's hard to get motivated to get out and do some detecting. I can't wait for Fall to get here!

I decided to go back over a mid-fifties yard that I detected earlier this year, but this time I was going to be a little more methodical and try some different settings. The first time that I detected the yard I was in a hurry and cherry picking. As you can see it pays to slow down.

Congrats on some silver & wheaties! Heck, if you got a spot you can return to, may as well cherry pick it 1st go-round.

We've been getting some much needed rain (south of you), and I'm glad to see it!

Not to shabby there Buddy! I suppose forcing yourself to go detecting is better than forcing yourself to go to work, or shopping with the Missus for sure!

Thumbs up

I did the same thing, forced myself to get out and detect this afternoon. Took my youngest with me, and we dug up a dozen US Cents (I'm pretty sure some are gonna turn out to be Felix coins). I think we lasted about an hour. For some reason, even though it wasn't hot by the thermometer, we got very hot, must of been really high humidity.

Thanks! It's fun cherry picking, but it just as much fun going back seeing what you missed.

Thanks! I'm afraid to take too many days off from detecting, because I might end up like the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz. Speaking of old classic movies, I spoke with a young girl, in her mid-thirties, at the doctor's office and she said that she has never seen Gone With The Wind. Damn!

The high humidity and no wind is a killer even when the temperature is moderately high.

No it's not a gold ring, but I sure thought it was when it first popped out of the ground.

Looks like a Rosie roundup.

Nice finds.

It's tough in the heat.
I have sweated loads.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks! Actually in the last few years here locally I've been detecting and haven't found any silver, but I can't remember exactly what day that happened. LOL

Thanks! Sweating is good you, but I still don't like it.

Thanks! I was thinking about you when I kept popping Rosie dimes. It's about time for some big silver! Keep your eyes peeled because it's coming.

Smile I Forced Myself To Go Detecting Today

I know what you mean about forcing yourself to get out there hunting in this heat. It has been a while since I got out. It is amazing how well you did considering you had hunted there before. Just proves it is ALWAYS worth another look. Congratulations on getting more silver.

Default Heat? What heat...

Still getting the silvers...plural...I see! August is not kind to Tennessee this time of year usually...

It's been in the 60s and 70s here for the highs, but lots of rain this year. The ground is very soft, but I've been concentrating on digging gemstones lately....

Getting out tonight for a hunt...some of the hard-packed areas in the park are prime digging right now....should be at least one good coin in there somewhere!

Come on out this way sometime...weather is great, and digging is better!
