Checked out the local sites today.

June 11, 2020 07:00PM avatar
I called Monte this morning and told him I was going to check out our local sites and detect a little if they aren't weeded over. He opted to stay home and get healed up. But he said I could find anything.........but no silver as he said he had some catching up to do.

Well loaded up the dogs and hit the freeway to the Rye Valley exit and from there headed west to Switchback. The rains we had the past few weeks ago really greened up the mountains and brought out the flowers. The downside is they also brought out the weeds as well.

Got to Switchback and it is completely overgrown and non-detectable now. Will have to wait till August after the summer heat/sun has dried out the weeds and they wither away enough to be able to detect again. From Switchback, I headed out down the gravel road and worked my way out of the mountains back to the desert and arrived at Lost. Its kinda good, but not great.

From Lost, I headed on over to Lonesome Arch, and surprisingly its has a good amount of area to detect as they had cows in there eating the grass and keeping it down. I then popped over to Lone Tree and it is grassed up as well and won't be able to detect.

I did spend a few hours in Lonesome Arch and got a Chinese cash coin. Then after a bit, I was working in a nasty area and kinda got a squeak under a sagebrush. I dug some dirt out and even then I still could not get a good lock as there was a bunch of crap in that dirt. Briefly, I would get a flash of 80-81 and figured if I did have a coin it would be an Indian Head penny. I finally located the target in the dirt and to my surprise, it was an 1893 Barber Dime. It was being masked pretty good in all that stuff. But the little coil was still able to sniff it out.

It was then I realized I wasn't supposed to snag any silver.....oops!!! When I got back into cell reception I called Monte and let him know I got a silver. I pleaded and begged on the phone and after 10 minutes he gave in and agreed not to ban me from AHRPS and future outings and I got off with a warning.

I guess I will have to drag the Racer 2 back out and use it so I can notch out everything above Indianhead penny to stay on the safe side grinning smiley

Was a nice day and a good day to travel 40 miles of gravel road smiling smiley
