Default No comment on the worm?

I think that is an awesome pic of the worm in action. Can't believe I am the first to comment on him/her.... Congrats

I love to see gold come out of a park, gives the rest of us hope Most of that stuff is pulled from the water. Congrats on a great find!

Thank you pescadore! I really love it when a nickel finally turns up after digging 20 pieces of aluminum. 16 in one hunt is my record i think

Ha, this was my sentiments exactly. Anyone who can angle for gold rings in junky parks : My hats off to you. Dave-1904 has more patience than I do. If I am in the mood for angling for gold rings, I'll just go to the beach or lake beaches (or certain *very select* types of land hunting).

If I'm in old parks, I'll generally cherry pick for old copper/silver coins.

Public parks requires a lot of patience. Sometimes more than I have.
