    Wow, great thread!
    As usual, I'm a little late to the party *ahem!*

    I'm new to MDing, but having a blast & getting a work-out...muscles I havent used in years are yelling at me to leave 'em alone, already!

    Thanks for all the ideas - I *always* carry lotsa water and an extra diggin' tool, just started carrying extra batteries and my good camera.

    So far, I havent ventured very far afield, except for public places I can get to in my car.
    Mostly, I'm staying on our property, 100+ acres with two old home-places on it, plus a neighbor gave me permission to hunt on his "old home place" fields (there've been 4 homesteads there over the last 200 years or so) and a few other spots that are easy to get to in the Rhino ~ so basically, I'm learning my machine & diggin' a lot of pull-tabs and relic farm equipment...

    I've found some cool stuff. Will try to post pics, just for kicks - nothing spectacular or newsworthy.
    But I'm looking into how to find CW sites in this area (saw your other thread which mentioned that, btw) so the hints/tips I found here really help, and added a whole new dimension to my thinking/planning.

    Thanks, Y'all!

    Re: What do you put in your gear pack for contingencies while relic hunting?

    An extra digging tool...how many of you have been out deep in the woods and broke your shovel?

    A map or GPS. Record those hotspots in your GPS.

    Watch: long summer days can be REALLY long when your digging and its hot. Don't forget to get out of there in time before dark if you are somewhere you are not familiar with! Yes...it has happened to me.

    Hello All,
    Lots of good suggestions, I will add just one.
    Occasionally I go into the woods. Picked up Poison Ivy for the first time about a month ago. From now on I will have some Clorox wipes or make my own in a baggie. If it helps a little it's worth it!!

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    I carry most of the things mentioned but I also carry a whistle, just in case I get injured or lost. It'll help someone find me.

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned is a sharp Machette. I carry it in the woods. I use a Messenger bag instead of a backpack so things are in easy reach. It also doubles as a knee rest when digging.
    A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." -Douglas Adams

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.
