    Bandido strikes again..

    While Iíve been lurking around now and then, I hadnít actually done much detecting lately and decided today was a good day to get out to a place just up the road from me, the abandoned campground. I found my very first silver ring there shortly after getting my first Tesoro. Itís not nearly as find-rich as other spots Iíve frequented, but thereís still stuff there, if youíre willing to swing for a while. Took my favorite Bandido II μMAX with the little 5.75 concentric - and surprised myself by finding a tarnished ring in the first 15 minutes. After about an hour of zincs, a few copper pennies, dimes and a couple nickles, I finally dug a wheatie (Ď48D). A few minutes later I dug a Mexican 100Peso thinking I found treasure.. Turns out itís not worth but about .50Ę.
    After a few more recent pennies, I dug up a kidís ring that looked a bit golden.. Wow! A two ring day, after not detecting for months! Putting my glasses on, I see 925 and 10K on the two rings.
    Love my old Tesoros.

    Even though we may feel a bit left out by Tesoro having closed up, it doesnít diminish the fact that they made some great detectors over the years - and they still work perfectly well, thank you. BTW - almost missed the little gold ring; had the Bandido disc set at ď4ĹĒ, which is where itíll hit nickels well but ignore steel bottle caps.. This ring was nearly discíd out. Not sure why I dug it but glad I did. It was only Ďbout an inch down and had it been deeper, I wouldnít have gotten a diggable signal with disc set there. The silver ring was down Ďbout 3Ē and hit hard.
