Monte's results from the 7th WTHO.

Terrible health and mobility are the reasons. angry smiley

I was only able to put in very limited detecting time, and never had the opportunity to search at 'Lost.' Most of my time was spent at 'Lonesome Arch' and all I was able to recover of any interest was a copper thimble, that sadly was squished, and a decorative button front. Quite a few cartridge cases, but none of any older era date or interest.

Since these towns are all in a 97 mile round-trip from my home, thus able to be hunted periodically, I did spend some of my time searching particular areas to evaluate the amount of debris, mainly searching for active areas, but those that have a lesser concentration of rusty tin.

And naturally I spent some of my time trying to help others who had questions related to detector design, settings, performance or a couple if on-site repairs. Also spending time checking in with others in the hope they were enjoying the Outing and having some appreciable amount of good fortune finding keepers of interest to them.

So, in short, health can be miserable at times, ticks can be annoying always, rattlers (and other things that slither) stayed away from me and Rikki which was welcome, the weather was pleasant, and I know I just have to keep at it like several others who missed out on any coins or trade tokens. On that point I am not alone. But there were quite a few interesting artifacts that participants recovered and that was an enjoyable part of the Outing ... as well as our get-together for Saturday evening dinner. smileys with diet Dr. Pepper float

Looking ahead to the 8th WTHO that will be wrapping up our first day of the event just two weeks from today on May 17th down in Wells, Nevada.

I hope to see a lot of you there!

Monte

PS: Most of my hunting and finds were made using my White's MX-7 w/6½" Concentric coil. My 2nd most-used set-up was a Makro Racer 2 w/7" Concentric coil, and coming in 3rd was my Nokta Relic w/5" DD coil. I had other detectors along and used some here and there, but those were the main three devices I hunted with.
