Rich, at least you were able to get out a bit.

September 11, 2017 09:34AM avatar
My July was hampered by way too much heat. Ogden, my home town, had 3 triple digit days in July of 100°, 101° and 100°. Here in Vale, Oregon we got to enjoy 11 triple-digit days (a third of the month!) with most ranging from 101° to 105° so I didn't have anything accountable to show for July.

August was a bit better, but I am working on catching up my Coin Count this month and on through the end of the year. Maybe your moving cut in on some of your detecting time? I plan to move, somewhat, now that I have a camping trailer. In the coming months ahead I am going to plan some 5-14 day adventures travelling to sites to get more detecting time in. I couldn't invest in anything to help my mobility, but at least I can get away to some fresher sites to hunt. Who knows, maybe I'll become a snowbird?

I made a 3-4 day adventure to break in my trailer by heading off to Ogden, Utah at noon last Wednesday so I could visit family and friends and enjoy the annual TWAS Potluck & Competition Hunt for club members that was held in Ogden on Saturday afternoon/evening. It was also great to see all the entries in their summer FOTM contest, a lot of them were obviously getting out and enjoying some detecting as it was for finds made May 9th thru the meeting of September 9th.

I was able to put in a little Coin Hunting time in Ogden on Thursday evening and during the day on Friday between visiting with friends and family and managed to haul in a chunk of coinage I need to add to my months take. I know it was over 181 coins and included several wheat-back cents and two Buffalo nickels. One was a worn version and I couldn't see a date. I'll have to use my glasses when I sort them out. The better one was a 1929-S.

I was hoping for some left-over silver to still be hanging around in the renovation area between the newer playground they constructed a couple of years ago and the Ogden River. All of the large renovation area where homes were removed several years ago was quite productive at the time and that still remaining native dirt, north of the river and in all of the shade of the big tress was inviting during the heat of that summery Friday afternoon. There still has to be more than two Buff's and several Wheaties hanging around there that I found.

I hope to make my next trip back that way by the end of November, after hunting season, and hope there will be some pleasant fall weather and a delay in wintry snow as I would like to work a lot of sites from Ogden to Salt Lake City and improve my Annual Coin Count. Did you move very far from where you were living? On my next trip that-a-way I'll let you know and maybe we can find an old site or two to thin out some keepers.

I hope your September detecting in more productive than last month.

Monte
