Talking It would be extra funny if Dave detected coins he himself dropped as a kid !

Throwing pennies in the mud puddle as a kid
Dave likely did not realize that he and his sister
were seeding a hunting area for future detectorists

Another special guest appearance by KT, with his okay of course

Looks like KT is looking for a place to park where he won't get towed,
after seeing so many videos of people getting towed, he knows better !

Wonder if Mud's new super detector pulls coins and good stuff out of the sand or pulls all the bottle caps and pull tabs out of the way.

Was this former rodeo rider Grumpa's first attempt at trying to ride a horse ?

That would be really neat if you can detect that area and actually find some of the pennies you yourself tossed there as a kid

Have to get back out there and see if i can find the spot it was in , most fire towers are long gone . I recall throwing pennies off , and rocks and a toy army man with a parachute . Know i wouldn't have thrown any bigger denomination coins off because you could buy a soda or candy bar or comic book with it.

The toy army man with a parachute sounds like something I did as a kid too
