Mike, 'Welcome' to our AHRPS Forums!

May 02, 2017 07:33PM avatar
Thanks for joining this great group of enthusiasts! Also, thank you for participating in our Annual Coin Count Goal 'fun' and reporting in.

I hope you don't mind but I corrected your 2107 to 2017 year in this post, and I added your Year-to-Date Total in your March report. Did you get out in April? We had a record-setting winter here in Vale, Oregon (far Eastern side near Idaho) and were snow-covered until mid-to-late March. I had to make drives in to Portland, Oregon to see my mother and get in a little detecting, or head over towards Boise Idaho where there was some access to snow-free ground.

We had too much rain in April as far as I'm concerned, but at least it wasn't snow. Glad to hear you could get out up there in Michigan on the first day of the year! That must have been a surprise. If you're sidelined with work or other matters, your get-away time might be limited. However, if you have free time, vacation time, or any opportunity to get away for some detecting, I try to put together a couple of Welcome-to-Hunt Outings the past two years, and this year's are scheduled for May 18th to 21st out of Wells, Nevada.

The next is June 8th to 11th here in Eastern, Oregon. The two towns with close to similar driving distances are Baker City, to the north, and here in Vale to the south. The hunt sites are three Gold Mining era ghost towns that date to 1863ish. These are open to the public, no charge, and anyone is welcome.

We have had 17 to 25 people attend each of the first four WTHO's, and we have had participants come from Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and I think some of the newer folks added to the WTHO Contact List said they will try to make one or both, and they are coming from Illinois.

If you can make an Outing, let me know. If you'd like to get on the Contact List to know where and where future Outings will be held, just send me an e-mail and we'll discuss it.

Also, 'Thank You' for mentioning the detector and coil you used. I always find it interesting to learn what people like to use, the settings, etc. Is that your main-use detector & coil combination, or do you only have the one detector? Best of success in 2017, and frequent the AHRPS Forums often.
