Default Worm and toad hit curbstrips part 2....worm hits GOLD!

Worm and I set out early this morning to hit the curbstrips on the other side of town. No silver for either of us, but Worm hit a really nice 14k ring with his obsolete at max Give him a big cheer because that's his very first gold! He also got 2.21 in clad along with my $5.26. I hit a junker ring and 7 wheats.

Sounds like the two of you had a fun hunt! Congrats on the gold, wheat cents, and clad. Hunting with a parter is the best!

Sounds like just another case of the Max outdoing the 800 again, bahaha!

Looks like you all had a great day of it.

LOL!! Thanks Mudd!!! I think Toad thought something was wrong when he turned around and seen me!!! Have you ever seen a detectorist in all of his glory with digging belt and headphones on running a marathon to catch up to his buddy to show his find? That my friend was me!!! LMAO I was almost out of breath.

Toad calmly looks at me, and asks......"did you find something?" All I could say was GOLD!!!

You got yourself a real good Hunting buddy there! Toad has put on a remarkable showing here in the past few years with his Dirt Gold finds...Looks like you are symbiotic...I bet Toad was just as happy as you were! This is a tough Sport, and nice to have somebody to share it with!

You are correct Mudd. Toad is the reason I got my gold. Lol when he tells me something about detectecting.....my ears are open.

Lmao I will say this too. He hangs in there on the curbstrip longer than I do when the law pulls up. Lol he kept swinging while I was smiling, waving, and heading to the truck. The good news is they werent interested in us.

I didn't even see them until the second patrol car pulled up! That's when I looked over at you and you were already halfway to your truck

Good post Toad. Looks like you had a decent hunt yourself, and HUGE congrats to the Worm for his first gold find! That thing looks like it was polished right before they lost it. Worm, you will earn far more than melt value; handing it over to the Mrs.
