Default Waited to long

I was planning on detecting the main grassy area of my daughters school but the Mrs said I should wait until school was over. I waited then went tonight. Much to my surprise there werenít that many signals. Walk around the corner of the school and thereís someone detecting. He said he hit the area pretty hard the last few days. Still found a 1950 wheat penny and some deep dimes and nickels.

Yep. Been there. One time, they tore out the old road and sidewalk right across the street from me. That night, I thought; "I'm hitting that tomorrow morning. Should be all mine. It's a weekend, so the road crew won't be there." I had a nice breakfast, geared up, and walked out the door around 9 am...to see three guys with metal detectors packing up to leave. One of them told me they didn't find much, just seven Indianhead pennies! Yep. Waited too long.

You want to get a machine that's a little deeper than his.
