Well Gregg, you can't say you didn't get any exercise. Holy cow did we cover some ground....and i'm pretty sure I'm sprouting horns and hooves, at least i feel like a goat.

Gregg and hit an old southern Oregon ski slope and covered about every inch of the hill....or at least it felt like it. I managed a 6 silver day last year....and had high hopes. While we did get some sparse rewards, it didn't play out like last year. Pretty clear that the hill has either seen some other detectorists....or not much use/spillage.

On day one, i pulled a 29 buffalo (notice how nice it looks after a 5 second Muratic acid bath and light brushing). Late in the day, i pulled a 19s Walker - will used, but a welcome sight. The next day was tough, but Gregg had pulled both of his finds, and he took off a little early to go back to the cabin. Less than an hour later, i pulled a 41s walker not more than 50 feet from the last. I enjoyed dropping those on the kitchen table every now and then so Gregg could hear them ring:-) Unfortunately day 3 was not a repeat, as we both went home empty handed minus clad an a working Motorola phone.

The hill is not target rich...and not much to keep you from swinging or to mask the goods.....just tough hunting. The only interesting thing is how the rocks play w/ the signals. Everything on the high end of the chart comes in 3-5 VDI higher on the scale....which means you could discriminate out a Silver dollar or possibly even a half dollar if you are notching out top range VDIs to avoid any hot rock noise or big iron. All quarter and even some dimes appear to be halves.

Anyway, it was a nice break from being home and in what has been hot weather for several weeks. Finds were few....but the scenery and the outing were worth it!
