Unfortunately, I think a lot of people are 'staying-at-home'.

Some because they might not be feeling well, and others because their state or regional area has limited their opportunities for activity. I know that some locations have restrictions on City Park use so those haven't been hunted recently, nor have School Grounds or a lot of Beaches and Sports Fields. A bunch of Hobbyists are more into urban Coin & Jewelry Hunting, and I'm pretty certain a lot of the Avid Detectorists who enjoy Relic Hunting the older and out-of-use locations don't have many that are within an easy drive for a day's adventure.

I do have some friends who made an adventurous two-state drive this past week or so with the intent of doing some detecting and digging & screening, only to encounter 'Posted' signs at one old town site, and at another the dense weed growth was shoulder-high, and the mosquitoes, gnats and chiggers caused a lot of annoyance and left some nasty-looking bites. But that's how it gets to be at times 'Out West' when, month-to-month or year-to-year, we can face abrupt changes in weather and site conditions ... from extremely good to very terrible. And we can experience those changes in conditions in a matter of weeks to just a month or two depending upon uncontrolled weather conditions to the good benefits of having huge flocks of sheep or herds of cattle graze through an area and clean it up to huntable conditions.

Then, there are the individual changes we deal with. You know, the little things like getting older, falling apart to where it limits the amount of time we can contribute to metal detecting, We might even have to put up with some sites that have been good to us in years gone-by, but are drying up on easy finds and call for more dedicated time-and-effort to eek out a good keeper or two.

Oh, we can't forget that there are likely to be at least a few Forum contributors who have recently added a detector or two to their outfit and have been, or currently are, devoting some time-and-effort to getting acquainted with their new-to-them detector / coil set-up. Once they get more comfortable with their new detector addition, they will get out more, find stuff, and get back to posting their success afield.

It's 3:40 AM and if I can I plan to head out to a ghost town later today. Zincoln is over this way for a visit and he and OregonGregg have been keeping busy for several days, and I think 'Lone Tree' and 'Lonesome Arch' are in their plans for today. Not every day has been rewarding for them, but not all failures, either. I'm sure they'll get some Relic / Old Site Forum activity started soon.thumbs up
