Enjoyable and engaging to watch.

Glad you are getting into the hobby. Fun to posit about what may have gone on 100 years ago.

I especially liked the old fishing reel, being a fisherman myself.

I am jealous in that i know of several old logging camps in my area, and detecting them is HARD. SO much brush here in our area that its tough to get a coil on the ground.....or years of erosion and animal activity buries things deeply. I've found old iron, and a razor, but little else. I have old pictures of my relatives back from around 1940 when they were first using big engine power saws - some requiring two men to run. By the time my father was in the woods, the equipment was more modern and logging camps were different. We lived in a little camp in Alaska you could only access by boat or float plane....but that was circa 1970...so nothing so interesting to find in terms of relics today.

Keep at it. Maybe you'll find some old two man draw saws or equipment from the old railroads that serviced the 1910-20 camps!

Best to you both,
