    2nd Trip To The Practice Field To Test The Redneck Meter Cover

    Woke up early this morning and headed to the practice field I started yesturday. I also wanted to test out my new, patent pending, Redneck meter cover. This field is small compared to the ones I have been doing, and I managed to get the rest of the field done. The sun came out and my meter cover worked like a charm. It didn't black out once. My finds for today were:
    16 Quarters
    14 Dimes
    15 Nickels
    12 Pennies
    1 Susan B. Anthony Dollar (my 3rd in 2 weeks)
    1 Putt Putt Token
    1 Foriegn Coin, maybe Korean, reverse says 2003 and the demonination 100
    And last, but not least, a 10K gold ring with 3 diamond chips. The band is bent pretty bad, but who cares, it's another ring!
    By the way, I bought another Coke on the way home, so now I have another meter cover to start filling orders with. This was a great field, I only dug MAYBE 20 pull tabs or pieces of shredded aluminium. I wish they were all like this.

    I make my own rechargable packs, otherwise I'd go broke.

    Piggman,
    Nice ring and congrats on you Redneck Meter Cover.

    I'm really impressed with your methodical searches. I try to do that but I'm easily distracted and wind up going in all different directions. I find my fair share but I'm sure I could be doing better. Have you tried going back over a field you've covered but at a different angle and if so what were your results?

    Yes, I've gone back over some of the places I've searched at a different direction, and didn't find much at all that I missed the first time. The method I use is in the following diagram. Since you only move over 3 steps at each end, you overlap some of the area that you covered coming up, and you find some things that you missed from the other way. It covers the area pretty thourgh.

    Dang, you are even more thorough than I thought. I try to look at something on the other end to make sure I'm going straight but sometimes I will get distracted or lose my place.

    Great ring you found...Congrats to you. You deserve it!

    Piggman, as always, if something is there I'm sure you'll find it. Congrats on the gold!!!
    I hope you know you started a fight here at the old homestead. I showed mama that picture of the cross you found and gave to your mom last week. Mama's jaw dropped and her lips proceded to pucker out and in a meek voice she said " I want one, too " Would you mind going back out there and finding another one of thoes One Of A Kind Crosses for me. hehe
    Stay safe brother.
