Zincoln Came over and we went detecting......

Well Zincoln showed up on the doorstep. Once a year he comes over and we go on a detecting/make OregonGregg frustrated adventure. This year was no exception, in fact, he had me cussing and crying more than in past years.

We started off Sat. to an old site and he snagged a V nickel and a few early date wheats. For the life of me, I couldn't get a coin under the coil to save my butt. One could have flew outta the ground and hit me in the head and I still couldn't find it ( but this is all part of the Zincoln/V3i and a now added IDX Pro curse.) Towards the end of the day I was at the truck grabbing a snack and looked over and here came Zincoln walking over....with no detector, to show me something. He has never done that before. I figured I was in trouble, and sure enough, I was. As he was grinning ear to ear he dropped a big ol' shiny......................................in my hand. ( find out in Zincoln Post) So began the frustration smiling smiley

Sunday was another day out for a nice easy hunt at Rippville. I did finally manage a Mills novelty token and a 1936 wheat. Zincoln got skunked. So I started to feel a little better.

Monday we headed off to Lonesone Arch and I got a 1908 V nickel and towards the end of the day I snagged an 1866 Shield Nickel. ( my only really good find for the trip) getting the shield nickel boosted my sprits and once again Zincoln got skunked. I was starting to feel lots better.

Tues we headed back to the first site and we put in a very long day and both got skunked. ( i don't count ghost town doodads)

Then Wed came, the day my world got shattered. We headed back to Rippville and I did manage to get a 1917 wheat and Hart's Place 5 cent token. Earlier in the year, Zincoln wanted to buy my IDX Pro with mods. ( I told him the mods added 2 extra knobs and it might now be a machine above his skill level, but he wanted it anyways. So I said ok and he picked it up when he got here) Monte joined us that day for a bit and he took Zincoln aside and showed him how to Power balance it etc. So Zincoln worked with the IDX Pro and a few short minutes later he pulled my #1 bucket lister outta the ground. I managed a few cuss words before being overcome with grief as the tears streamed down my dusty cheeks creating little mud puddles. Congrats to Zincoln, that was a very nice find smiling smiley

Thursday we ended our trip by going back to Lonesome Arch. Managed a 1905 V nickel and that was it and Zincoln got skunked. But gotta say, two of his finds would make any trip complete.

As always the dogs had fun and little Boomer stuck right with me every day.

It was a fun adventure and hated to see it end. It was good to see Zincoln again and already looking forward to our next little annual detecting hunt we do each year.
