    I almost got skunked

    Got out for an early hunt to chase the outgoing tide. I walked all over the place trying to find targets but they were MIA. After four hours of barely getting any targets I finally found a spot that had a handful of them. I had already given up on finding gold, but thank god for luck cause I stumbled on a little 14k piece. After that target I was ready to call it quits because it wasn’t going to get better. I also stumbled across an 1899 IH. Total clad for the day was $6.10 and I only had to walk 6 miles to find it Thanks for looking and good luck out there.

    It doesn’t always pay off but I’m glad it did this time. Gold is good and every little bit, no matter how small it counts
