    Don't say it!

    Don't say it .... I don't want to hear it again. "At least you got out"! Argggggggggg. Yes, I got out and it was a pretty nice morning too but.... nothing to brag about as far as finds. I have no idea what that big chunk of metal is. All I know is that it is HEAVY! It put my detector in to overload. I got more of those tiny little sinkers, another thumbtack and of course a few pulltabs and a bottle cap.


    I found my eighth nitro stud earring. Soon I'm going to have enough of these earrings to open my own store!


    I "thought" I got lucky and heard a nice sound.... looking through the water I could see a silver line shimmering. Ah yes a necklace..... oh boy! Nope, it wasn't a necklace but a piece of silver tinfoil like the old Christmas icicles but the thing setting the machine off was a small clasp - well maybe that was "good". Nope.... it wasn't, it's junk too. **sigh**




    Well at least I didn't run into any sea creatures with sharp teeth, barbs etc.

    Hi Mumszie,

    At least you got ... some signals. I've detected some dry sand beaches and have gone for 30 mins without a peep (not counting the times I forgot to turn on the detector).

    That big hunk of metal looks kinda like a big machine nut?

    Oh come on now mumszie. We know what you have done. You have cleaned out those beaches too good. How about leaving some for the rest of us? Monty

    Don't want to get your hopes up but that has the hallmarks of a meteorite. I'd be gettin that puppy tested!

    Possibly, but it almost looks to have a specific shape. A pyramid shape with a depression in the top and some sort of attachment on the side?
    We all know there's no such thing as a "hunted out" location. Let's stop using that phrase to describe a park out of which you just dug a pile of coins! Obviously that particular place wasn't "hunted out", right?

    Here's what you found

    I ordered one of these new lava cakes from Dominos. They feel just like a cannonball going down. JP

    Boy, don't get me started about those lava cakes! I got one and thought each one of us (4 of us) could have a little piece to see how it tasted. When it got here it was the size of a little cupcake! Sheesh! I gave the whole thing to my grandson. I didn't expect it to be big but that was ridiculous!

    Re: Don't say it!

    I totally feel ya! I've only been doing this for a week or so and I haven't found anything other than beer caps, bobby pins and the like. (Bobby pins should be outlawed!). It's very frustrating. I'm not giving up, though. But I do understand that Arrrrrrgh! factor. LOL
    If anyone wants some company on a hunt, I'd love to tag along!

    Hang in there Susan. You can ask anyone on here that I complain a lot when I'm not finding anything but I do have my good days too. You just hang in there and you will have good days also.
