    I attended a somewhat brutal boys' parochial high school in the late 60's and saw some of my classmates held upside down by their ankles out of second floor windows by a large Franciscan brother shouting "Confess, Confess!". I've always felt a little guilty that I wondered if coins fell from the pockets of those students to the ground below or if the pockets just inverted and sealed themselves. (Does the young mind think these things to avoid confronting the reality of torture?) I never did search the ground below those windows because I never felt comfortable about keeping such coins if I was to find any and also explaining what I was doing would have been awkward. But hey, maybe search below those parochial school windows...

    That was far from the worst that I saw there.

    Ok... DO NOT dress homeless to get people to give you money.... that is not right. Everything else sounds good though. Thanks for sharing!
    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.

    Yup......just found a pair of earrings still in the box. There they were among the lint and clad at the vacuum bag dump site. At my spot they just empty the vacuum right on the ground. nice little pile of clad each week. Lots of cocaine and weed baggies all over the place here too. Never know what you'll find. Gonna have to go check that spot this morning. Had a lot of fun in the Bahamas picking up clad all over the place. We had a contest to see who could get the most coins on our daily walks. Lots of change gets tossed out over here for some reason.

    Just curious what do you do with all the cocaine? The cops here would be on us for just looking at a grease pit for bling.

    Lots of used baggies and other paraphernalia. I throw it all in the can that's 2 feet away. I cant understand why they dump it all over the ground when the cans right there, but they do. The change litters the area around this vac. The very first circle-k gas station when you enter the keys, and the last stop before the 18 mile stretch to the mainland. Unbelievable traffic in and out of this gas station.

    I miss TD penny arcade. I found so much jewelry and many times had over a $100 of coin that was stuck in the reject shoot. That was always my way of making up for gas money CRH. I estimate that I found close too a $1000 in rejected coins because people never looked. Also found a $400 Tiffany ring in the reject tray.

    Go for it.....I'm after the cobbs more than the clad. Consider it a gift to the treasure hunters of the world. I'll still check it on the way to beach. Hmmmm......now I'll have to watch and see how many people show up at the golden vac. Lol !!

    I've tried to check the vacuums at the local car wash, but they all have locks on them. I haven't found one yet that didn't. I guess the owners are wise to the treasures inside and wants them for themselves.

    Water fountains are an excellent source for me. BTW I'm back after about a year in purgatory.
