    Very nice pics. Thanks for sharing your history. I've been thinking about doing the same thing but haven't yet. Like that blue ford maverick in the photo. Growing up in the 50's as a baby boomer...... Those were the days. Thanks again for sharing and the work you did. BTW.... nice finds too

    Re: I took my DFX down memory lane

    Now that is way cool. That badge rocks! I too did a hunt similar to that where I went to my house that I grew up in. Even took some pics of the cement with my initials in it like you did. Found a bunch of wheaties and one mercury. And an old fork with Studebaker engraved on it. That one is special because my Grandpa worked at Studebaker and I am sure it was his. Now it is in my collection...

    Cool digs and great story buddy...WTG....jgas

    Fantastic post - a pleasure to read this. Glad you had a memorable time and congrats on finding your badge...I too wish I could go back to the house I grew up in......I got my 1ST metal detector in 1974, I think it cost about $15. cheap as HECK!!
    I do remember finding a Merc way back then where the swingset was. Don't know if my MOM planted it for me to find or not??
    Thanks again..............
    GOOD LUCK TO YOU & YOURS........

    Shrecky that has to be my all time favorite post to date. I really mean that. I will be walking down the same lane soon (also with my DFX). My mother (last parent alive) recently passed away. My sister and I have been going through the house little by little. Seems that around every corner there is something taking me back to old memories. I to will detect my old childhood yard. We will see.

    Thanks for the post.

    Re: I took my DFX down memory lane

    Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I wish I could take the time to tell you about all the memories I have thought of since my hunt. Snow forts in the yard, wrestling matches with all the kids in the neighborhood against my Dad, my dog Susie and cat Fang, Christmas gatherings, Halloween parties, my “perch” at the top of a 50’ pine tree next to the house, sleeping in tents, and on, and on, and on. Thanks for taking time to visit my memories.

    PS the car is a 1970 Ford Maverick; I had it while I was going to technical school.
