    There's not a lot I can do well - just ask my friends and co-workers! But I DO know my way around researching.

    I've already found 7 or 8 of these that are long, LONG gone, and have overlay road and satellite maps of where they once stood.

    Good job, but I doubt if you are the 1st to do it. Good luck, some promissing sites turn out to be a bust and yet some that you have very little confidence in will surprise you with an outstanding keeper.

    Example. My 1st IHP came from a defunct trailer court, yet at a promising permission I found nothing but clad. Pull tabs and bottle caps had sunk to 9 inches deep. I still have permission for this site so when she goes back to Florida, and after a heavy rain, I hope to pull some real deep treasure if it exists.

    Ohhh, I KNOW I'm not the first, Sarge...I'm just trying to spark some life into the newbies here in Illinois.

    I've been doing this since 1980...and I KNOW what you mean about not-so-promising sites delivering. At our first "virgin" discovery (which was a grade school along a state highway), my "mentor" and I were counting our silvers by the POUND!
