I am pleased that you, your sister, and a few others were first-timers at the recent WTHO. You had the opportunity to meet up with quite a few 'regulars' who have attended one or many of the prior Outings, and I'm sure you found them all to be really great people. There were at least 22 in all who were able to attend the 13th WTHO.

As for equipment used, I am partial to my favorites and have been using smaller-size search coils since 1968 and have found them to be some of the better picks to work in and around the dense brush and ferrous debris we typically encounter in those types of old sites. My next choice, for moderately-littered areas, is a good mid-size coil.

The F75 is a good detector and I've owned a couple, but I have favored the T2 series, especially the T2+. I just wish they would have made a small Concentric coil for it like the F75.

By the way, Darby, who also made the last Outing, was using an F75 w/5" DD on an earlier WTHO in Eastern Oregon at a mining-era ghost town I named Lone Tree and found the oldest US coin so far on any of the 13 WTHO's. It was an 1836 Capped Bust Dime.

If I recall, both Roger and Tom plucked Seated Liberty Dimes from that site as well.

Like many people who have attended our Outings and are used to typical urban Coin Hunting sites or some areas that might have a low to moderate amount of nails and iron debris, they discover a new adventure. That is how to deal with excessively dense amounts of nails, other ferrous junk, and that blasted rusty tin that can be anywhere from full size cans or other objects to tiny decaying shards.

Most of the old railroad era ghost towns, as well as those we have hunted that were from the gold mining era that dated from 1860's to about the Depression Era, are some of the nastiest iron challenge sites you could imagine. Of course, you learned that now.eye popping smiley

I am glad you made the Outing, met some great people, and also 'met' some of the interesting old sites we enjoy hunting 'Out West'. I hope you'll be able to attend future Outings, and I am on the search to find new and different locations off this direction.

Again, 'Thank You' for sharing your experiences with us.
