Copper and I decided we would go detect the hot springs. We headed out early and got there about 9am. The water was exactly 102°F. Perfect! We had about an hour to detect before people started rolling in. I brought my anfibio with 9x5 coil mounted. Copper had his atgold with 5" nel sharp coil mounted. I sold my waterproof headphones with my simplex awhile back to Monte. Being the water was only like 2 1/2 to 3 ft deep the anfibio all folded up was perfect. Also the giant display with the the back light turned on and the vibration function made life easy for me. Coppers machine did not fold up or have any of the other great functions like the anfibio so he had a hard time flailing around with a full size machine. Why was this important to have a folding up machine in the shallow water you ask? Well being it was only about 15°F I could easily stay under water and stay warm and detect. Copper had a hard time being his machine wouldn't fold up lol. Anyways i was real happy with the anfibio and we both found a hand full of clad before we decided to leave. No jewelry either. Didn't get much time to detect before alot of people showed up and I started overheating and had to get out. Man what a beautiful relaxing place. On the way home driving thru Wells I told copper we should go detect that old abandoned lot. So we did. I grabbed my minelab vanquish 440. 10 mins later I get a solid 34-35 on the vanquish I thought was for sure a can. Dug it up anyways and out popped a large silver ring with 1857 inscribed on it. Wow!! Also ended up with another handful of clad. They hauled in some black dirt that the ring came out of. Not if it just got turned from the area or the ring came from a old railroad site. Was a great day.
