Another successful outing!

May 21, 2021 11:07PM
Thx to Gregg, we tried to find some new to us locations where we might scare up some interesting items. Finds didn't fly out of the ground, but we each made a few memories...and had a heck of a good time for 8 days. Gregg found his dime the first afternoon we arrived, and we had high hopes....but we soon came back to the reality of hunting old, iron/tin ridden sites.

We saw every weather pattern in the book. Hot sun, high winds and dust storms, hail/snow, freezing weather....and at least 3 funnel clouds of which one was directly over me - Lilly decided to head for cover in my truck as we trotted there hurriedly as we both had a premonition of what was coming...while Gregg was toughing it out...right until the thumb nail sized hail started falling and sent him scurrying too. Big enough to leave little dents in my cab. Wait it out he says...it will go right around us he says. Well, it went right THROUGH us:-)

Fortunately the only snake we saw was a harmless, and the lizards were curious but also harmless. Did see several scorpions that scurried off when i lifted old tin.

Pic 1 - front of tokens (one from Fairview Nev and a match to Gregg's)
Pic 2 - back of tokens - both 121/2 cents, only my second and 3rd
Pic 3 - Miner's necessities (I thought these were cool - pick, chisel, headlamp)
Pic 4 - 100 year old Gillette razor blades, still sharp (thought it was full of coins)
Pic 5 - Chinese Hoard
Pic 6 - Silver and gold finds
Pic 7 - Keeping those teeth clean 100 years ago
Pic 8 - Crickets.... (check out the weapon on that thing)
Pic 9 - and more crickets
Pic 10 - lock and insulator
