Joel, you were correct in several ways.

The majority of the types of sites we enjoy detecting, like those that have entertained us for seven years of WTHO's so far, have been worked hard on our outings, visited periodically by several of us between outings, and I know for a fact that several of them had a lot of detecting time devoted to them going back to the mid and late '80s. Several of my friends gave up on those towns by the latter "90s up about 2003.

Still, every year we have an outing there, somebody, often several somebodies, will walk away with some good keepers in hand. They've just been hit so hard that it's not just a matter of the detector and coil you have in hand, but it really gets down to how much time you put in hard hunting is site and then be able to get your coil over a dig-worthy Target and make a recovery.

And you are very correct about so many of the 'Outing Regulars' and Disc who have made that journey to Nevada two or more times, knowing how tough the iron conditions are and also knowing how skimpy some of the sites can be. But they are devoted and determined detectorists who know the potential is there and are ready and willing to put in the time and effort and hope it's their turn to have a good day.

It's definitely not always up to the particular detector or coil being used to produce a splendid find, it's just being there, putting in the time, and investigating any good to reasonably questionable signal. Those old sites had quite a bit of activity and the potential is there, but good-target masking is one of those things we have to be ready for and do all we can to result in a good find.

I'm comfortable with my detector outfit, especially now that I added 1 model back in that I regretted trading off 'Hombre', so now my detector selection is quite complete with very performance-based detectors to tackle those very challenging iron debris sites.

That comes with another 'Thank You' for working the deal with me too get the search coil I prefer 4 my new- 2 - me

j.t., there will be differences in detector or coil selection based on individual interpretation.
