    Still a ghost town I guess in ALL of the Colorado areas on here? Maybe I'm in the wrong Colorado forum? Heeeelllllloooo! Echo, echo, echo....


    Well in case someone from the Longmont / Loveland area is around I got the urge to dig in some dirt if you are up for it. It is snowing right now (go figure), but hey it's Colorado. Tomorrow could be sunny and warm(ish). I'm up for just about any type of hunting, parks, fields, etc. Anyway, if not now maybe someone will see this post in a year or two and give me a holler!

    Thanks for the reply! Not so empty in here after all! I did find rmpth.com and their face book page https://www.facebook.com/groups/rmpth. Planning to attend the next meeting to see what's up.

    Thanks digginthe1. Yeah, Colorado Springs is a bit of a trek from here. But it's gonna start snowing around here and the frozen ground might give me an excuse to take some 2-3 dayers down south.

    I'm near gunnison and I detect when I can. I come across alot of old cabin ruins when I'm prospecting and I like to detect those virgin spots. Their trash piles usually contain the best treasures I've found, or directly under the log walls. I can spend all day doing that and the history buff in me really gets the fire going with every find. I still have a few cabins I need to get back to with the detector someday but time is always too short.

    Finding an old homestead is certainly a good thing. Finding the trash dump, outhouse, etc on that site is the "prize"! Usually old bottles, coins, relics, and (hopefully) a cache might be our reward when we dig through that old trash. God, this is a great hobby!

    I have been scanning some older parks near where I live but so far the pickins are slim. I am researching and will continue to do so over the winter to prepare for the spring. It is always nice though to have others who enjoy the hobby that share in the fun.

    I see the posts are kinda old here...hope someone is still around. I am new to the hobby and was thinking on going to the local parks here in the springs to just kind of practice and learn. Any advice or info so I don't get in trouble would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    About a month or 2 ago they scraped off a layer in the park in old Colorado City. I don't hunt parks much, but be friendly, cover your holes and go when there are not a lot of people around. I think those soccer fields off 21st Street would be nice. When I was learning I sure liked under the swingsets. It's easy to get a feel for what coins sound like. Maybe the older parks would be good for some silver or jewelry. Good luck! I would be eyeballing the old houses for people outside to talk to!!!
