Default A little more gold

Still pushing everything aside to get in a couple hours of detectin time every day and lately its been paying off. Hit that FAT Plat a couple of days ago and now hit a plain 14K gold band. Today's scores include a Fidget Spinner, a couple of lighters and some paper currency (just a buck) and the ever present clad.

Thanks for looking and I'll keep looking too for as long as I can before I head back to the classroom... Happy Hunting and Good Luck out there.

Shoot, 5.6 qualifies as a bit more than "a little"

Congrats!

Yup, that's my 2nd spinner in about a month. I'm sure there's more to come but havent seen as many matchbox cars recently. Kids these days... what are we teaching them...lol Thanks X and happy hunting.

OK perhaps I"m a little jaded after finding a couple of big plats in the last month. I apologize for my misnomer of "a little". Be safe out there Ground and GL.

Yea perhaps I should amend my title but in my defense I was left unsupervised. Thanks for looking SCUBA and hope you score big too!

Thanks OBN but in defense of my statement my wife left me unsupervised and I wandered. My apologies... GG and HH

Thanks Schmitz's I wander from the edge of the dry to about knee deep and back again. I seem to do OK with that pattern and as they say, if it ain't broke don't fix it. HH and GL out there!
