    Last hurah at the Iceberg? Uno Silvero and 40 wheats!

    Can't stop this insanity!!...slept way late and figured that even 3 hrs on site (after drive and hike time) would be enough to at the very least add to my wheat count. Also, with the sheer number of wheat pennies the "wheat fields" area of the Berg is producing, the odds of a key date definately are improved. These wheats clean up easy and it's kinds fun later sorting them for any good dates over a cold beer.
    So...arrived about 1pm, and started RIGHT between where Nate and Bob were mowing em down yesterday. All told I dug 40 wheats and only 3 Memorials (total reversal from yesterday for me). I decided to leave before dark today and right next to the tree where I hung my backpack and thermos I set my detector down and took my headphones off (had left it turned on)..I poured a last cup of Joe and could hear the ACE ringing high belltone...I picked it back up and pinpointed a coin at 6"...out popped a 39D Merc!...ahhh silver.
    That put me at 137 silver coins for this year, and who knows how many wheats..Just for me, Bob and Nate we dug 280 wheaties JUST THIS WEEKEND!!
    Dunno if I'll be back before Spring to the Berg. I'd like a few weekends free to do some other things (Winter Mountainbiking mostly), and the Berg pretty mcuh consumes the whole day. My right elbow and my back need a break too. It was fun while it lasted!!

    HH all

    Pouch dumped out on the tailgate of my Element. I dug a LOT of old square nails today, just like Mirage did yesterday.

    LOL

    Musta felt really good to finally get silver after 40 wheats. Today I MDed for an hour or two at one of our local hammered parks. I found one wheat...which is pretty much a miracle for that place. All which made me crave a fix at the Iceberg even more! Yeah but I know what you mean about the Iceberg kinda stealing the day. Still would be nice to get back there every now and then as the frozen ground may not be a huge issue there.

    Well thanks Bob!!...as far as totals go, in my mind Buffalo and V nickles are just as rare for me as any silver. So...if this is a competition (my goal has already been far exceeded) my silver and Buffs and Vs add up to 168.
    A few months ago I even counted wheaties. I stopped that when certain areas started spitting them out like sunflower shells at a baseball game
