    Days of caution

    Would like to hear from fellow metal detector users. What is your thought about covid virus affecting the grounds on a tot lot or play ground equipment. In my area the tot lots are used a lot and being the virus seems to be maintained in perspiration which would fall on the chips or playground equipment. Please comment on good proper thoughts so we can put some rumors to rest.

    Found this...

    Of all the surfaces on the playground, plastic slides, climbing walls, and tunnels are most likely to harbor the novel coronavirus. A team of researchers from the National Institutes of Health, Princeton University, and the University of California Los Angeles dropped small amounts of COVID-19 on various surfaces to see how long it would survive. Their research, which was published on the preprint site MedRxiv and has yet to be peer-reviewed, found that the virus lasted longer on plastic than on any other material they tested — it took 16 hours for half of the COVID-19 to die, and the sample didn’t completely disappear from the surface for 2-3 days.

    My wife caught this last one and no different than a common cold. She had a runny nose, sore throat, and a cough.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    It’s just not a big enough concern of mine to even consider worrying about it. We’re surrounded by millions of viruses every day.

    Rare day I hunt in on or near a tot lot. Don't like the chips. Or mesh below on many sites. Plus not enough age usually in what is in the shallows. At least where I have hunted.
    One earthen play area did turn up an old relic. Was it imported will fill soil? Or disturbed during site grading? Not a high traffic site though.

    Anywhere people congregate in large numbers even briefly, or a few gather often , makes for a potential detecting site.
    When a nimble durable human virus is involved , I'd expect greater odds of finding it associated with human "fresh" traffic sites. But yes , human related activities.

    Don't lick the slides.
    Wear gloves as one often does detecting. Don't touch your face ,eyes, pick your nose ect.
    Hunt empty lots , or at least stay upwind..
    Wear whatever protective equipment suits you.

    Winter is coming. If I wanted to hunt the tot lot nearest me in a park , I'd wait till activity slowed to a crawl or ceased a while.
    I pass by often and even in fall already it's seldom in use.
    I can wait . Little competition lately. Including pre covid.
    Kinda miss the one hunter who detected it when visiting from out of state. We were about the only regulars in that park left.

    If you have had a shot, just use hand sanitizer and don't put yo fingers on your face while there. It can't magically jump from the slides to your eyes, mouth or nose. I use sanitizer when I get back to my car after every outing.

    The best advice I have ever gotten on Treasurenet. Might add it to my signature:

    DON’T LICK THE SLIDES.

    True, but most viruses don't kill 650,000 Americans...

    hands in the dirt but not in your mouth and you'll be fine. U.V light from the sun likely kills most of it .

    That doesn't pose near the danger that touching a gas hose nozzle or the key pads on a gas tank does.

    That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

    Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.


    Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

    Einstein once said: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

    "The COVID-19 virus can spread via direct contact, airborne transmission, or through droplets. There have also been a few reported cases potentially spread through surfaces. But the risk of this is very low. The chance of COVID-19 surface transmission is less than 1 in 10,000."
