    Anyone in the Mansfield/Willimantic area in CT?

    I live in Mansfield Center and have just started detecting in the area. I discovered a great park in Willimantic - dated 1915, and detected it last weekend. Lots of junk, had a signal every step I took. Dug for 4 hours, managed to pull one 1919 cent. The park looks very promising, but a lot of work. Found a cellar hole in a state park close by and found some iron relics - horseshoe nail puller, horseshoe, square nails, wrench - tons of iron in the area - also found the old well. Looking for other detectorists in the area to maybe hunt with. If you are in the area and want to share info, let me know. Also interested in hitting the beach this fall, and possibly sites along the CT river. I hunt with my girlfriend, and we also bottle hunt - anything that has to do with finding treasure, we're into it!

    Not sure if your still around, but I'm in Coventry, right down the road from Mansfield.

    I'm curious as to which parks you are talking about.
    Would also be interested in tagging along with you.

    Pm me.

    Please be careful hunting state parks in CT. Some areas are off limits. I found this on this site. It might be helpful.
