many things. In Georgia i have a couple places that are rarely mowed or not enough, and fall winter weather will stunt the growth and make it easier to get close to the ground and swing a coil.

my worst thing is the time change now since i work and have mon-fri 830 to 530 job. the weekends are honey do list time. but she does let me escape sometimes.

locations are tough now. my lunch hunts are pretty hammered out and new drops rare with restrictions of covid.

Demo lots get fenced and are no goes by local construction companies due to insurance theft etc... i understand that. found 4 silver rings and good coins, and old elbie did well too on a school lot being renovated to a senior living apts. the going thing for abandoned schools in my area. some majestic old buildings where neighborhoods died out . they hauled off half the topsoil to the red clay for a parking lot and the top soil goes to landfill that is totally inaccessible. and nasty anyway... garbage not inert fill. waste of good dirt full of targets. .

location is a big key factor now. old lots being renovated built over. suburban sprawl on old farmlands--grandpa and grandma old farms sold to subdivisions... sadly.... my area exploding in growth residential wise.

health some issue but bearable.

so to sum it up location and time change mainly.

we have great machines now.... just need to use them more. get better with them.

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
