Another great outing in the books.

June 13, 2021 01:47PM avatar
It's hard to believe that it has been six years since #1 and we just concluded #13. Lots of familiar faces as well as some newcomers. As always it was a great time. Was fun to meet everyone.

I believe the total was 22 people that attended. This year the sites were pretty clean, it was the best I have ever seen Toano. The bad news was the road getting into Toano, the last mile in was literally 4-6" of pure silt/powder dust. Boy did it make a mess driving in there.

Overall the weather was good, having a few hot days, a couple of real windy days, and one day that was pretty cold with 20mph winds.

Some nice finds were made this year. Unlike 2015, the Deus & Equinox ruled this year. I think I was the sole user of a Nokta/Makro product, with my ol' trusty Fors CoRe and oor coil. Some others had a Nokta/Makro with them, but don't know if they used them. It was the equinox machines that made the two best coin finds.

Anyhow, when it was all said and done I managed to get another Clover Valley Bar 12½¢ Tobar, NV. trade token smiling smiley and a 1912 V Nickel from Tobar.
In Cobre, I got a 1907 V Nickel, but it was actually an eyeball find. Was walking thru an area and spied it on top of the ground. Also got a no-date wheatie and SPCO padlock.

Toano gave up a couple of Chinese Cash coins and an 1876 seated dime. And the usual ghost town doodads.

As I said, it was a very fun trip and was good to see everyone again as well as several new people, Mike from Utah, Chuck from Indiana, Mike from Alaska, and Victor's friends Dennis and Diane.

The one unexpected thing about the outing was that OregonGregg came home with an XP ORX. It will be fun learning this thing. I'll start by reading the manual a few times and prob use it at Rippville to learn it.

Here are a few pics.
