Hi Guys!
Sorry for the lapse as I am new to this forum and how messages work here.
I have been using a new technology here that has been done by the NGIS to map terrain by stripping away all trees and houses. What this does is give a historical, 3d view of the land. Every stone wall and every cellar hole ever made is clearly visible. I have spent 4 weekends to test and it is 100%. Every site I saw on the Data site turned into a 100% verification of a cellar hole. This weekend is crazy but Lets get together and pound these sites! The ones I have explored so far with the MD were so Iron laden with metal roof material and nails, my ACE 400 was overwhelmed with separation issues. Whatever was here in these sites, simply caved in on themselves. I just ordered the Nokta Impact because of this. Thank you all for being interested and I hope we can find some good things this summer. It would be fun!
Ed

Just a warning here, The cellar holes are in the 100's count now that I have found so far that no man has seen in 100 years... Some/Most are a really good hike into deep woods.

As Soon as I am able, I will show you examples of the images I am getting. I will show the "GOOGLE EARTH" view, the "Arial Photo View" and the "Imaging" view of the same locations. This is amazing technology!
