I know of a lot of places by me to go. I researched a lot over the winter. I found a lot of possible locations. A lot of them are woods type sites. I'd be willing to share them if somebody wants to team up.

Well they usually are, but some town officials/groundskeepers don' really understand the nature of what we do. Furthermore, some people dig giant craters, don't fill properly and leave trash and then wonder why parks get closed to MDing. Just move on to another place and you should be fine. HH!

I'd love to go meet with somebody. I just got a new Garrett product myself. An Ace 350. I really want to get something going here. I've got a bunch of places to go to by me out here. Old Homesites, Old Factories, Parks too but I haven't had much luck finding treasure in the parks out here. Just clad really. But if any of you WNYers want to, let me know. A lot of these sites I haven't even touched yet.

Default East Aurora here

me and my 6 year old nephew are new to the game. I came across this forum to try and see how many people were hunting around the area. I'll check back periodically to get a dialoge going. Cheers.
