I'm impressed with the volume of lead you turned up there.

Andrew does recover some good old military activity site finds. From about mid-'83 thru late '91 there were maybe four areas or portions of 'Twin Flats' where I was finding a lot of those big ol' bullets along with uniform buttons and some insignia. But those must have been 'hot spots' because in all the years later I have only found an incidental button out there from that early era.

I did have the opportunity to hunt a few military camps and a fort site here in Oregon, and a few guys in the Portland Detector Club made periodic 4-day trips to heavily hunt one of the fort locations. But that was mainly from '78 to '88 and it was thinned-out quite well. On private property, too, and I've fund in more recent years (two or three decades now), with newer, younger landowners they are not as 'friendly' like the good ol' boys were at granting access. Back then it was "Good Luck and Have Fun!" Today, if they don't say 'No', it is more like "How much are you willing to pay?"

And while I'm not a fan of breathing in all of the smoke from the multitude of wildfires all over the Western US, I think you saw a benefit of the clearing out of the underbrush. thumbs up

The wildfires in Oregon were misplaced.

They are mostly all over Western Oregon where they typically get a lot of rain from fall through spring. They were needed desperately over here in Eastern Oregon to wipe out the very dense vegetation in 'Rippville', 'Lone Tree', 'Lonesome Arch', 'Lost', 'Switchback' and a few more places we can think off where it doesn't get so much rain during a year. All we are getting to do is choke on the very hazardous gray air .

With all of the fires in California and Oregon, I bet we're going to see some serious erosion this coming winter in the gold bearing mountains as well and perhaps some of the old sites we visit now and again.

Definitely going to be some of those burned-up areas where all of that wet weather coming in from the coast is going to leave some erosion scars.
