    WoW! The Queen of Iron!

    What a great story and pictures!

    Keep it coming. I'm feeling highly motivated.

    Super cleaning jobs too.

    My main site is a major historic location also. Due to the owners of the property, I can't tell who or what at this time. But I can say my location is one of the most important historically for the state of Michigan. It took me 13 years to locate this site. I only found it because an old timer (now dead) gave me a tip.

    So far I've dug maybe 300 good artifacts. I'm estimating that there are as many as 2000 to 5000 more at the site. This was a very large and early lumbering camp few even know about. I even found what appears to be a large horse drawn wheeled plow. See, Michigan lumberjacks only did their logging work during the winters. They needed the snow to slide the logs out and to kill the insects. During the summer they farmed, hunted, and canned foods. The plow is buried about 3 to 8 foot deep. It would take heavy equipment to dig and remove it.

    This stuff is great fun!

    Thanks alot. I am still waiting to post additional photos and the rest of the story. My camera died and I need to get a new one to take pics of all this stuff I dragged home.
    As far as cleaning any of my items...I laid them on the concrete and sprayed with the hose....thats it LOL!
    There is a ton of stuff still there and it would take me an entire summer to go through it all. I plan on going back in a week or two.
    I also dug up a horse drawn hay rake,but couldnt get it out . Have arranged for a man to help me with a tractor. Because you know...you never know when you might need one....Lord someone stop me ....I have more rusted iron than I know what to do with.
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    You know Gypsy

    It couldn't hurt to offer up one sacrifice to the detecting Gods.
    C'mon! Couldn't we offer up a Pete sacrifice?
    I mean heck! If it didn't appease the Gods.
    I'm sure it would at least appease some people in here.

    You should have been detecting the old store site and the town around it instead of swimming ...hahha...you wouldnt believe the stuff I pulled out of there. The old bridge is gone and you cant get there the old way. Went in to the end of Mooshine Alley ,where the old logging camp was also. Great stuff. Took the canoe up river and tons of old places.

    I think this thread is so well written it belongs in Marc's Best of TNET right next to the Trail of Tears article. Plus then i can look at the old swimming hole where i had many fun times with the Hoogilan girls.
