[/QUOTE] I have plenty of spots here to keep me busy so I will stay closer to home...[/QUOTE]

Glad to hear. I am getting ready for the winter season here, my friend from the frigid north will be back down here in a few weeks, it will be nice to have him back to hunt with, they didn't come down last year because of the situation...
If I come up your way late spring I will give you a shout, would really like to get out hunting with you again one of these days!

Glad to see you finally got to go out again Craig. I sure hope you get back into the groove . I don't get over here as often as I would like, but always stop by to see how the "locals" and my friend Beechnut are doing.

I hope to do a lot more detecting this winter and hope for less snow... I'm tired of plowing... I heard on news today there is a shortage of snow plow drivers this year...

Think about... use a snowblower on the sand to get down to the good stuff... not a bad option especially for overburden

That thing was a converted weedwacker if I remember correctly... I looked for it on youtube a few years later they must have pulled it...

They were also advertising an electric snow shovel. Is snow wet?

Great Pt. Ring! I have not dug a Pt. ring in 6 years, and I've never found one as heavy as that.

I hear you, living in Japan and detecting there has ruined me for living in Florida. Was nice finding 30-40 Pt Rings every year and 100 plus K18 or higher rings every year as well. A buddy I used to hunt with just moved back to Okinawa, his first hunt last week with his new Nox 600, he hit 1-K18 and a Pt.950. Nowadays, I get excited about finding a wheat penny.
