    My BEST for 2006 from DES PLAINES IL BOB

    The snow has come which means it is the end of my metal detecting 2006 season.
    The season started on 2-10-06 with my 7 year old daughter and I going over to her school playground. The first find was a nickel. The season ended on 11-29-06 with the last find being a 1936S Merc in the pouring rain with my friend Pat.

    This also has been great year due to the fact there are an awful lot of great people on T NET. The sharing of stories and events,the sad times and the happy times,the ideas and tips, The friendships gained, The encouragement to keep digging when a post is about having a PULL TAB day, To those finds of a life time. I love reading the post of what everyone finds whether its a junk day or a great day. Cause you know we all have them.

    As most know I do a lot of TEAR Downs, Parkway Areas, Sidewalk tear outs and Private Properties (where I will ask an owner to hunt). Parks are for the clad to buy batteries.
    There is a lot of places to hunt out there. If you just ask... Persistence Always pays off in the end...Don't give up on spots..

    Quite a year indeed.

    Now I have something to shoot for in 2007.
    Originally from N.Y. .... the "BITE ME" State.

    Those who tell us we are wasting our time detecting, are wasting theirs telling us about it.
