    Report from Punta Cana

    Just got back from anniversary/metal detecting trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Spent each a.m. low tide detecting for a few hours. Probably between 12-15 hours total. Hunting during the day was NOT an option. I tried it once and the European tourists would not leave me alone. Also, 90% of the finds were in the wash. I began hunting waist to shoulder deep the first two days only to manage two,or three targets an hour. Once I hit the slope, targets were plentiful. Unfortunately, most of them were of the steel coin variety, ringing medium on the CZ21. Did manage to find 255 coins, 4 silver rings, and an 18k necklace with three 18k friends.

    There is something truly exhilarating about digging an item of remarkable value out of the ground.
