    Heading to IOWA May 15th. Between DeWitt and Iowa City for the day Wanna Detect

    Leaving Chicago early morning.
    Starting off in the Dewitt area then heading West towards Iowa City.


    Anyone in that area that might want to meet up and do some detecting on that Friday Morning?


    I'm going to try to hit some old schools that are long gone.
    Plans are to do some door knocking at some farms to find the owners of the land where the schools were.

    My goal is to find a Seated coin..Hope I can.....

    PM me if you would be interested and we can talk.

    I'm usually in the IL section but thought I'd see if any IA detectorist might be interested

    GOTTA LOVE THIS HOBBY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and Happy Hunting from Des Plaines IL ( D P Bob )

    Bob,

    Did you get some hunting in today or did you get rained out? I was going to get ahold of you to meet up but the forecast kind of made me stay inside.

    Hope you got a few keepers between the raindrops.

    HH,

    Dave

    got out a little

    Got the number of the land owner where an old school from 1874 once stood. Land is planted so I'll call him later on.
    Stopped in a small town, to eat, coming home with my Son and got to talking to a farmer. Got his number for hunting his land.
    He had an old school on his property and it was moved. He's going to talk to some of his friend and make arrangements
    for me to detect their proprieties. I said I would call him in advance and let him know when I'll be back out.

    I did get to do a 1900's house for a short time. Only got a 1917 wheat and some junk.

    RAIN RAIN  it sucked

    Where you at? 

    Hit some parks in Iowa City between the rain.. No Keepers....

    Bob,

    I am southeast of Des Moines about a half hour. I am about 2 hours from Iowa City. Let me know when your coming back this way and maybe we can hook up to hunt. I have had limited time to hunt this month with the rain and trying to catch up in the shop.

    Wish the rain would have stayed away for you though. There are some good areas over there to hunt from the sounds of it.

    HH,

    Dave
