    Bama Gals Hunt with Quindy Today-Several Relics Dug!!

    We had some Bama visitors today who have wanted to hunt Tennessee for some time and have had a standing invitation for years. Unfortunately, Doug and Josh both had work commitments on Saturday and the trip developed very late in the week. They did get an opportunity to join us for the after hunt dinner. Nana40 and Lisa drove up with their husbands Charlie and Bruce. Since the girls rarely have an opportunity to hunt a CW camp, I was their guide at a hard hunted (but still productive) site for a 6 hour hunt. My goal was to help each of the girls to find a button, various caliber pistol balls, .58 cal. 3 ringers, and other CW goodies from the Union camp to take back to Bama with them. As Doug, Josh, and Tennessee Digger will tell you that was an ambitious goal for that hard hunted 1862 site. If time permitted, I also wanted to show them some cool historic sites in the area.
    The girls were very frustrated with their machines at first but quickly made some adjustments to somewhat cope with that hot Tennessee soil in the camp. I think a F75 is in their future after they saw the performance of my machine today. I bet they will each will have a F75 the next time we hunt.
    As you can see, the girls had a good relic day. I had not seen Charlie in almost 2 years (although I had talked to him on the phone) so we had a chance to chat during lunch. Lisa’s husband Bruce came later in the day and he and Charlie visited a local gun store-imagine that.
    I hope our visitors had as much fun as I did today. Nana and Lisa were definitely my prettiest hunting partners ever. HH and enjoy the video, Quindy.

    Q-
    I'm glad you were able to show the Bama Babe's a good time. Looks like some Tenn CW history was recovered by those two pros.
    Any Margarita's make it to the dinner table? :-)
    I hope you saved some CW relics for an NC rookie.
    Thanks for the pictures and video!

    We talked about you & the Margaritas several times during the hunt MM. Since Bruce & Charlie both had to drive 3 hours back to Bama (while Nana & Lisa slept-LOL)and all the Trio crew had to drive, we passed on the drinks. The Bama gals cleaned out that camp-LOL. We are looking forward to your visit. HH, Q.

    HSD, the gals were a hoot to hunt with. As to the CS buckle, we are trying. I have dug a CS rectangular plain brass militia plate but nothing with CS on it or the frame types. Most of our CS camps are early war and they were not outfitted with the good stuff here until after mid 1863 Thanks for looking and MM's NC buckle was a Best Find in W & E magazine. HH, Q.

    GREAT stuff you dug, and I'm sure great FUN had by everyone! I'm working on a video now of our hunt. Nothing spectacular, but an interesting history on the two tokens we dug--which DO match the one dug while you were in town. More on that later. Congrats to the Bama Beauties, and congrats to you for successfully completing the Relic Q & A delivered by Quindy!


    Cheers,

    How gracious of you to share a hunt and the history lessons. It looks like they had a lot of fun. Sounds like you have some good land owners that enjoy having you all out. That is important. Glad the Ala. Gals had fun and were sucessful. Another good video.

    Great hunt and it's always nice to see the ladies get out there and dig in this typically "male" hobby! HH

    P.S. - Get them girls an F75 pronto! lol

    OH Quindy! What a wonderful time we had! You are a wealth of information and Southern gentleman through and through. Let me tell ya folks, he's one of the best. We learned so much from him and had a blast doing so....Except maybe for being quizzed as soon as the video started to run. I now know what the deer in the headlights thinks. nothing. I probably couldn't have remembered my name if he had asked me. haha! Loved the whirl wind tour of the beautiful historic sites we encountered.
    I somehow found myself sitting in the back seat of the truck yesterday, so I didn't have to be the gatekeeper. Guess who volunteered?

    Nothing but Southern hospitality right there.

    I will have to say that I had the highest regard for my MXT before yesterday. Quindy and his F75 soon made me re-think what I thought about my machine. The only thing I can say (unless somehow proven other-wise (here's your chance)) is that yesterday, Lisa (DFX) and I watched in amazement as Quindy found targets that our machines could not even come close to. example: He would come across a target, call us over and get us to scan our machines over it. NOTHING. Not even a little bleep. :X Even after several adjustments and ground balancing. So he dug the hole and we could see the target in the bottom of the hole. (guessing eight to nine inches down) Still nothing. I don't think I've ever been so disappointed. Makes me wonder what we have missed all these years. We did end up with a few super CW relics and a great horseshoe that I am claiming to be from the Cavalry. Also dug a million nails that I'm sure came from Cavalry horseshoes too. hahaha!
    By the way Josh and Doug, Quindy dug a fab eagle button and he bought lunch. Southern gentleman, eh? And I want to see a pic of that button too, Q.
    As the day lingered on, the cows rotated to our side of the pasture. Now Lisa is not fond cows, but Quindy convinced her not to be afraid and that if she so desired, she could probably herd those heifers right back to the barn. (Not really...Charlie is pretty good with the photoshop.) hahaha! The real story is, Lisa saw those cows heading out our way and she was ready to go to lunch.

    So after our hunt we met up at Chili's for dinner. Lisa and I had talked all day about that margarita we were sure to have. I really don't know how we got out of there without one? Maybe the fact that we were distracted when Josh and Burt, uh, I mean Doug joined us for dinner. What a great surprise to have them there! Was so nice to meet you all and truly enjoyed your company. Thank you! Maybe someday we'll get to hunt together. Josh brought that beautiful three cent'er and we all drooled over it. lol

    Quindy, the video was terrific as usual. The song is perfect. Southern born girlies. And if we spoke with any more of a Southern drawl than we do, you wouldn't be able to understand a thing we say. I'm sure of it. haha!!!
    Thanks again for having us over and spending your Saturday with us.

    Wow Quindy, Great video, I hope when we hit the field Monday that it is nice and warm like y'all had. LOL Looking forward to seeing you and Doug and Josh again. Earl has high hopes that we will all do good hunting with you guys. I am wondering if I should use my F-75 or my GPX 4500. They are both great detectors. See you, bright and early in the Morning. Again, looks like y'all had a Great time. Good friends, good relics and a good time had by all, can't beat that. Denny ( Ringfinder )
