Monte-----We went into Lost by the road leading into the town proper.------I think whatever I got in our tire was picked up on that stretch of road .------I'll know tomorrow what it was from when I take it into the tire shop.----My guess is a nail or piece of wire.-----When you go to Lonesome Arch--don't pull in very far on that entrance road adjacent to the Arch.----I got a flat tire there also on a CRV a few years ago.----There is a LOT of old nails scattered on that road.---------Anyway, as I mentioned, we didn't find any old coins at Lone Tree.-----We each found full/unbroken harmonica reeds, a few Henrys, a few other camp "doo dads"---and Patsy found two humongous (and I mean BIG) ax heads.-------She collects 'em!smiling smiley-------Yeah, we'll get back over there.----Didn't get any ticks or run into any rattle snakes this time.-----How'd you guys do with the ticks on yourselves & the dogs?-------------Del & Patsy

It is kind of handy having those three old gold mining era townsites within a reasonable distance. I found my oldest coin at 'Lone Tree' with a Relic & 5" DD coil, and that was the 1853 Large Cent in April of '17. 'Lonesome Arch' that sits between the other two had the longest and most active life and, certainly, has the most potential to have desired 'keepers,' but it also is the brushiest and most debris-filled of them as well.

I prefer the more open terrain of 'Lone Tree' but my personal favorite of them is 'Lost.' I'll have to give you a call sometime and figure out what particular chunk of that location you sere hunting.

Sorry to hear about the flat tire you had. Was that from making the drive down into the heart of 'Lost' or did you stay up closer to Mormon Basin Road?

The year isn't over yet and more pleasant weather should be here for a month or two before winter so perhaps you can make another adventurous trip over that way? If so, let us know.

PS: Waiting to hear what the Shield Nickel date is.
