Getting out to 'Rippville' on the 19th & 20th

March 21, 2019 12:01AM avatar
Remfire did make a longer drive over to join us, and after seeing the amount of snow they have on my visit to their detecting club last Wednesday, I don't blame him for getting away to enjoy our much drier, snow-free hunt sites. Well, at least some of the lower elevation places, and all three of us managed to not get skunked on Tuesday the 19th. I found the most common Trade Token, an At Dome's Place, and Gregg found the second-most common Trade Token from Mills Novelty.

I only managed to hang in there for about three hours before I had to call it quits, but I heard from Gregg later that Remfire also managed TWO keepers, one of which I envy him for.

The weather was generally pleasant and warmed up, until the breeze also picked up which left it pleasant but you needed a long-sleeved shirt and/or jacket. Yesterday, the 20th I was definitely not feeling well so Rikki & I stayed home. She was worn out, anyway, from all the running around she and Binker were doing on Tuesday. I was hoping to make it out but couldn't. It's 1:00 AM now as I've been resting up a lot and figured I'd get to e-mail and forum posts now and take my turn heading off to 'Rippville' for a few hours on Thursday. Need to try and catch up with Gregg's progress of finding better Trade Tokens, and hopefully chance upon an older coin or two.

Sorry Rikki stuck her head in the way of Binker's pose in one of Gregg's photos. Oh, on Tuesday we were all using a Nokta FORS Relic and none of us got skunked.thumbs up I have four detectors loaded now, but the Relic is going to be my main-use detector when I get out there today since I'll be concentrating on a very rusty tin, nail and other small ferrous littered area.

I'll get my token cleaned and post the photo later. I was using the Relic, in Di 3 (3-Tone) mode, Sensitivity '99', Disc. '5' and Iron Volume at '1' with my favorite dense-trash 5" DD coil.

I hope spring has arrived for everyone else to get out and enjoy some detecting.
