Monte----If you ever come up with a "new" place for a WTHO (other than these sameo sameo "beat to death") places---Patsy & I--and probably others would attend.-----I haven't got any suggestions for hunt sites--but--I just know our sites up here around Baker (Lone Tree & Lonesome Arch are SUPER BEAT TO DEATH--and are overgrown with grass/weeds---and now those lousy ticks.----"Lost" is now closed to metal detecting due to mining claims/restrictions.-----It's a tough nut to crack---I hope someone can come up with some new/different hunt sites.----I started in this game 47 years ago now and it sure ain't like it used to be.----It remains the great hobby it's always been--just need (half way decent) detecting areas.----------Del-----
As of early Friday my two 'guesses' below are not looking good. Most of the old townsites have produced at least one coin or interesting artifact, just not as much silver coin as I guessed, and no trade tokens yet.

I think the most interesting or valuable artifact so far was found by UtahMike, and the oldest silver coin, an 1851, was found by OregonGregg. He has also found the oldest non-silver US coin, an 1859.

Just a couple more days after today and we will start seeing participant's reports of the Outing, and so far, other than a bit windier day today, the weather and hunting conditions have been quite nice.

As for Monte's time, while enjoying the scenery from the motel, I have been busy trying to figure out a new and different WTHO location to start working on for our next get-together. I am always open for hints/suggestions so please share your thoughts.

Del, just another old site reminder.

10 AM and another report of a fantastic find!

Del, all Outings can vary, but I am looking for a new site.
