    MY AWESOME 2011 YEAR IN REVIEW!

    2011 has to be my most memorable year as far as quantity & quality of finds.
    breaking last years large copper total of 34 was an accomplishment in itself with 80 3/4's,73 Indian heads & 49 silvers.
    Not to mention finding my 3rd 1789 George Washington inaugural button. Another goal was to dig a 1820's NY state militia Excelsior button
    these 3 milestones would have satisfied me for the entire year but,it just gets better.
    the highlight of 2011 for me has to be a small pocket spill of early colonial americana at a cellar hole site. 2 beautiful 1787 Connecticut coppers coins and the coveted 1793 chain cent with a rare reverse.the word AMERICA abbreviated AMERI.
    Metal detecting for me,is the most rewarding hobby one can have.
    The companionship & camaraderie of hunting with others who share a passion for history,whether it's showing eachother finds during the hunt,asking opinions on unidentifiable items,comparing signals at a site,cleaning your finds,taking pictures,displaying them and being an active member of internet forums are just a few of the things that I most enjoy about this hobby.
    I have been very blessed to have had pretty good success in the 21 years of park & old home detecting & the 4 short years I have been colonial cellar hole hunting. I hope that my finds after I'm gone will be cherished by future generations to come.
    In closing I wish everyone much success in detecting.be safe and may GOD bless you all!
    Dave

    Yes Sir, You have been blessed. That's a lot of stuff, and a lot of GOOD stuff.

    I'll just say there are a few things there I'd sure like to find.

    Maybe next year.

    And good luck to you too in 2012.

    Re: MY AWESOME 2011 YEAR IN REVIEW!

    You have had an amazing year. The hours you put in are represented by the quantity of finds you made, and the quality of your finds is a reflection of the early sites you are hunting. After so many great finds in 2011, I wonder what your 2012 goals are? This past year will be difficult to top.

    Holy Crap Dave! Looking at your finds from this year almost brought me to tears man!!!

    Just looking at all of the great stuff you found, almost makes me want to forfeit my Canadian passport over and move to Connecticut permanently!

    Hey, seriously though man, you've had a great year and I've really enjoyed seeing your on-site pictures and reading your posts! Especially when you're chasing butterflies for a picture!

    Best of luck to you in 2012 buddy!
