we live in Willow Springs which is between Fayetteville and Raleigh ... I'd enjoy linking up with folks to do some detecting but I do work to where my time to spend detecting is way too limited

Gas is so expensive it's hard for me to leave the Fayetteville area. Anyone interested is hunting Cumberland or Harnett counties, let me know.

Yeah I've been researching the Averasborough battlefield, and it is actually alot larger than one would think. Truthfully the whole County is a mess of relics, its all about getting permission on where to hunt.

i went out to Sicily Drop zone on Fort Bragg and walked it with my daughter today and found (without a metal detector) about 15 large-bore musket balls, and a few other scattered points.

Digger, I'm very new to the hobby, haven't done alot yet. I got the M6 because of my interest in American History. Now just to find some good spots that might produce some relics is all.

Quite frankly, it's too hot for me right now other than at the beach. This fall I will be out in full force again.

For you guys near Raleigh. I was down there last month, near Lillington. That whole area seems like it would be great for swingin'. There is that park, Raven Rock or something and also I found this old church in Sanford circa sometime in the 1800s that has a front lawn cemetary. The church has been renovated to look like it did back then, complete with original slave shackles and all. I think it might be like Poplar Sping Church or something.
