Re: PARTICIPANT'S REPORTS .... The 5th WTHO is now in-the-books!

May 24, 2017 02:06PM
I am another Greg (from Illinois) that was new to the WTHO and, as Monte mentioned above, new to this type of relic hunting. I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed every aspect of it. The weather, the scenery, the "feel" of being in a ghost town, and all of the wonderful people that I got to meet. The ONLY unpleasant experience that I had was late in the afternoon on the last day in Metropolis. I had a waaaaayyyy too close encounter with a rattlesnake. Fortunately, I was able to hear it's hiss (with my headphones on) and turned quick enough to see it coil up. It was only 2 feet behind and off to the side of my left leg. I had walked right past it and stopped to check a target. I got lucky that day!

Here is my take from Cobre, Tecoma, and Metropolis. The 1917D Mercury dime, two Utah tax tokens, the brass knockout, and most of the garter clips came from Cobre while using the Impact. The 1926D Wheatie, accordion reed, button, shiny garter clip, and the gold colored "whatsit" came from Metropolis. The plate that reads First National Bank, Elko Nevada also came from Metropolis. Again, I was using the Impact. I found the old crank telephone bell and what I think is some kind of striker plate, and a couple of garter clips at Tecoma where I was using the Deus.

It was great meeting all of you and I look forward to doing this again, hopefully much sooner than later!
