Default In Moorseville N.C. until 4/10

Anyone in North/south Carolina's want to go detecting? I'm from out west and not sure how to find old spots when I'm out here back east.

I am willing to drive quite a ways, night/day/middle of night anything works

shoot me a ring or text,

858.666.5841

thx

Mike

I am a fellow westerner (AZ native) here for 3 months. Volunteering at Moore's Creek National Battlefield. A few hours from you. I have been here a week and still trying to get a good permission. I hit an old river crossing park a couple days ago with little luck. Still talking to everyone I meet, looking for sites to hunt. Hit me back if you want to try to put a hunt together.

Hi Max, I know Paradise Valley well. It is East Valley. I grew up in Sunnyslope in the West Valley.

I used an Etrac for years, really liked it. I'm swinging a CTX 3030 now.

The wife and I travel full time now and whenever we stop in an area for a while I try to meet up with locals for a hunt or two. I have met some really good people all over the country that way.

Wish you guys were closer.

Mike is long-since back. But he did end up with some nice early colonial buttons, if I recall. Not exactly sure where he hunted.

Default Can't help you,

But recommend eating at "Joe Fish" restaurant if you like new England seafood.
