    One of the hardest hunts Iíve had in awhile

    Itís was a cold, misty, windy morning so if I went. I had positivity runny all through my head for a bucket lister day. Well it didnít turn out that way. It was hell I couldnít find a decent signal to save my soul and dug some deep plugs for 5 hours in this mess. Finally got a 1914 wheat and a bullet. It was one of those days that it was mental warfare to keep going. I almost got ďbrokeĒ like Kathy Griffin.

    Bullet looks fired CW. Any day you find one CW relic, it's a good day.

    It is deformed, but as long as there are no vertical lines, It would pass in my book as CW.

    Clip was funny. I sat behind a desk all day. A bad day metal detecting is better than sitting behind a desk.

    Iíve been a loan officer for 16 years I spent 12 years in a cubicle now work out of my office at my house. Life changing since I donít require much sleep away Iíll work at night drop off my paper to my processor in the morning and go detecting. This hobby changed the way I wanted to work. Lol

    Great clip...Kathy describes the pain so well.
    my wife is a loan officer thinking of making the switch from office to working from home, seems like everything is going paperless anyway...I sense no regret on your end

    highnam it works for me and gave me more of a life. I paid my dues and it helps that my boss is one of best friends from back when we were in the automobile salesmen. We shared a office for 5 years in our 20ís. It is almost all paperless and it helps to have a great processor and A paper. Tell your wife to go for it

    Copper and lead is a good hunt indeed. Not too long ago that bullet alone would have put you over the top. Glad you were able to power through. Spring will be here soon.
