Following Monte's Advice-always a good idea!!!

April 14, 2019 03:53PM
So Wayne and I decided to go on a overnight trip to the Pioche, Nevada area and try our luck at a few of the old mining camps around there. As per the previous post concerning Nokta Makro settings and coils, I thought I should follow Monte's advice and use my 7" concentric coil. I also tried a new technique of staying and detecting on steeper hillsides. I know a guy who does quite well doing this (especially with silver coins) so I thought I'd give it a try. I guess you're hunting where most don't, and dropped coins roll down hills and easily get lost. Well, it may have been the new Anfibio (which I love now), or the 7" concentric coil, or just luck, but I was able to find an 1854 Seated Quarter! A little worn, but I'll take it.

So thanks for the advice Monte! Much appreciated!

Took biscuit along as well. He had fun exploring the site and looking for lizards to chase.

BTW, Pioche is a fun little 3-saloon town. Wayne and I hit all three last night! Needless to say, we didn't detect much today on the way home. Monte, what advice do you have about detecting while hung-over?
