Re: Some friends showed up, so we went detecting smileys with diet Dr. Pepper float

Hello fellow enthusiasts.

The stars finally aligned and the perfect combination of free time, ability and equipment presented themselves so I just had to head east when Gregg tossed out an invite. I was unable to make the last couple WTHO’s, so I was definitely hungry. I had back surgery in early August, so I was a bit anxious about a long drive and all the ups and downs recovering targets. Luckily My back was pretty much a non issue.

It was great detecting with Rich, Gregg and Monte, not to mention Binkers and Molly. Also made new friends with the residents and pets at Rippville. I found the usual assortment of do dads we all come across on these trips. My personal highlight was finding my first ever trade token. Rich said I looked like a Cheshire cat grinning.

It was hot, dusty and spread out over some serious back country primitive roads. The Ranger just took it all in stride. I used my Racer 2 with the oor and 7” concentric. I love that machine. Thank you again Gregg for hosting. Dinner and a Bloody Mary was the perfect way to finish off the trip. I drove backroads home and explored a few new places to add to my list of places to hunt next time I’m out that way.

Enjoy the pics:
