I'm originally from Ma., but moved to NC. I'm heading back to MA this spring, and have a great place to detect. I'm originally from Worcester County, and will be looking around the Quabbin Reservoir. I have a place that may be awesome!

I'm an Artist, I sculpt using polymer clay, mostly sculpting babies from photographs or my hands just take over and do what they want. I make silicone molds of the finished sculptures and then reproduce in silicone or resin. I mold and cast other Artists original sculpts from around the world. Been in business for 16 years now, as long as arthritis stays away from my finger joints I'll be sculpting till they put me under.
I'm a single Mom so with any self made business there are good months and slow months so, to keep the boredom away, I started swinging..wait that doesn't sound right 🤪.

I live 5 mins from gate 43. Are you referring to Dana common? Yes it is still above water BUT the quabbin watershed is federal land, which means you cant MD unfortunately. Ever since 9/11, they keep a very close eye on that area. Not saying people haven't, or YOU can't, just that it's illegal, and your gear may be confiscated and further action may be taken. Not worth risking IMO, especially with all this land that ISNT off limits. Just yesterday I found a 250+ year old copper coin in a park tearout. You just never know up in the northeast. I have lived in Worcester county my whole life (only 30 years) and have alot of spots I would be willing to share with you. From parks right in Worcester, to cellar holes, town owned farmland, old ballfields, etc... I would steer clear of the reservoir though, just my 2 cents! On a side note, I am a custodian at WPI here in Worcester. Been at it for about 7 years now. I used to do framing/carpentry, from the age of 14-21. Had a baby girl in 2012 and that same year I started at WPI. Had a baby boy in 2016, got married in 2017 and still trucking on! Love this place!
