Hi Rich,

Definitely the most challenging, but IMHO, it's also the most rewarding. Get out of the hustle and bustle of the city (at least where I live) and out into nature, beautiful country be it desert, mountains, etc., and just take in how challenging life was for our predecessors. When you finally make some good finds, it's history you're touching and somehow you appreciate a how tough these people generally had it.

Fun times! I suspect this year will be interesting, with all the rain and whatnot, I bet the overgrowth is going to be insane this year sad smiley

GL&HH,
Brian

Ghost town tokens and coins are, at least by myself, so much more prized then when found in say demos, or parks. It's not easy finding these things in ghost towns as you know.

Brian,

Ditto on this.

In my book, ghost town type detecting is by far the most challenging for me to date.
