    South San Diego Detectorist aquaintances wanted . . . I have Permissions !



    Is your park hunted out ? Tot-lots boring ? Well dust off that Metal Detector you got for the Christmas of 1999 and put it to work ! You guys and gals that work Central , Coastal and possibly North County too.... I have Permissions in historic areas ripe with artifacts and possibly more ! Areas include military , Stagecoach/stop and home/commerce sites , many on open and private lands . No banks EVER HERE !
    Some areas require off road with others needing only a 2wd sedan .
    Past items include ; 1800s axe heads , pocket watch , bullets/casings , copper , horse shoes , utensils , pewter sticks , lead sticks , cannon shells , settlers , personal and militia finds . Also 1900s coins , bullets/casings , WW2(spent) hand grenades pins-fuses-handles ,melted blob of silver and gold coins , writing utensils/nibs etc.... ... Our Native American brethren also thrived in this area , the CAHUILLA, CUPENO, LUISENO, and KUMEYAAY (aka Iipay-Tipay-Diegueño) had a way of life here and were profound and proficient point (arrow head) makers though I don't have the "eye" to see them . Many rock "hunting wall", blinds are to be found above seasonal stream beds in canyons. I , myself have merely scratched the surface and , yes , this area was "poor" and rural but contains much history including a Railroad and military base. Rock hunters may enjoy the areas also as garnet harboring mica has been found as well as "leaverite" and others ��.

    Animals here can be beautiful and dangerous.....they include mountain lion , Fox, snakes of all kinds , wolf , coyote , jaguarundi , both ground and tree squirrel , raptors , carrion eating birds , both burrowing and barn owls , (beep-beep!) road runners , bats and all manner of bugs but surprisingly few mosquito .

    I am retired and have room for one in my 4x4 if needed . You must be able to drive to the areas mentioned below . A couple of restaurants and fuel available in the areas....bring lots of water ! We , you and I, have many permissions to choose from! I'm sure the finds will be there , they have been waiting for along time ! So fire up Google maps and pull up your LIDAR plats , charge your batteries and let's get hunting ..... I'm STILL looking for my poke of Spanish Real or Gold Coins ! I've a couple of old working swinging sticks to loan , nothing fancy .

    This area is located directly from SR94 between historic township of Campo , Camp lockett the original home of the Buffalo Solders and the Tecate(tecatito, the US side) border crossing near the OLD Tecate border crossing.... with defunct towns of Dog Patch, Canyon City , Potrero and others in between .

    Send a PM , a like or wait for me to check here .

    Wish I was down your way to see what sorts of spots you are talking about.

    Have you read "The Historic Backcountry" by Chris Wray ? He writes about the area you are referring to. We've gotten a lot of good stuff following his book info.

    ...No Tom , not yet. Seems like everyone around here has . I must admit, much has come from osmosis , locals , wrong turns , getting lost , chased by Border Patrol who by the way rarely have the same patrol but see it all and are approachable and happy to share information and Google! I have just gotten a chance to read an unpublished biography of a lifetime resident ! Can't wait ! I WILL check out the book at our rural Library !
    Thanks, and HH.

    Hi Mark!
    I live in the Temecula area and would enjoy a hunting partner.
    Taking time off work starting 10/1 to just relax for a bit.
    Let me know if you still would like a partner to hunt with. Looks like we are going to start to see some cooler weather very soon! 107° is a tad bit hot to be swinging for any length of time! Lol

    Hi Mark, I am east of you in the the Imperial valley. I am somewhat familiar with the area you speak of. I have a Jeep so unless the area requires serious rock crawling I am capable moving around in the back country. I am flexible time wise so week day hunts are good by me. In short I am interested and would like the oppertunity to hunt new areas. Are you going to start now or when it cools off a bit. My name is Wendell Clark, I will be keeping an eye on this thread!

    I wish I still lived down there my hometown is Julian and would love to hunt some spots up that way.I'm practically related to everyone up there, some way or another so permissions would be easy.There is one backyard that rumors say has caches of coins from the 50's 60's and 70's buried in it and now is an antique shop the owner passed in the late 1970's so who knows the truth but I would love to find out.Right now I'm in the central valley and know almost no one.

    ....Good morning Wendell !
    Truly , 4x4 is only needed for the many high clearance established routes and quite a few "jeep trails" from yesteryear have been forgotten. Google Earth "Camp Lockett" in Campo California. For an overview of things to come !
    My "schedule" is free most any time and can discuss the many options/permissions. Camping is dry and no hotel / motel options.
    Brawley is a fair drive so come prepared...water is available.
    Please let me know a point in time !
    HH,
    Mark.

    Julian is a wonderful place and MOST locals tolerate us crowding up the town to shop , walk and eat . Oh man, now I want a burger or Julian Apple pie and a malt !
    Thanks for your response.

    Good luck you guys. We've done good at various spots in the high desert down there. Never got down to Campo direction though.

    ....A bit of an edit....
    A Thank you to all responders...I have never Organized a hunt before ! And..... Check Google Earth in and around Camp Lockett(1941), Campo California. https://www.eastcountymagazine.org/h...cal-background (just north of the original Tecate, now defunct border crossing, Campo saw the railroad industry 1916.https://www.psrm.org/about-us/campo/) and the Large Equestrian and military storage buildings still stand, though off limits , other "command" building foundations can be driven to, accessed by paved road . Dog Patch (in San Diego-with a poor but rowdy bar-now foundations , where barter bought the drinks), Gaskill Brothers (stone store turned museum and historica gun battles) , Dulzura ("slow children" sign) home to two original and open businesses with permission to one and the old San Diego-Tecate stage route. POTRERO .... close to my dwelling , an Adobe horse exchange area next to a spring fed pond . Two contiguous permissions totaling 80 acres with one parcel freshly scraped for development where natives and European once frequented.
    There are many open range possibilities also , so . . ..
    Please voice your concerns and opinions and I will answer to the best of my ability.
    Thanks and Happy Hunting !
    Mark.
