    I did well today at two beaches!

    Sinkers, clad and junk jewelry. Lots of sinkers. I was at the first beach maybe 45 minutes and my buddy calls and lets me know bulldozes are playing at the ocean in Delaware! Heck! I'm already halfway there so drove the additional 2 hours.

    Got more sinkers. Lots more. Nothing good, but I had fun. Had to climb maybe 10' up a slope to get off the beach due to erosion from the hurricane.

    Lots of fun. The highlight of the day was rescuing a stranded bluenose stingray off the beach! Poor little guy! Cute too! Also rescued a horseshoe crab (they aren't real bright.)

    Lead is about 93 cents a pound! The Deus made it out in the ocean with the water kit and performed flawlessly using wet beach and version 5.20.

    Same here. If I was on the road for over 5 hrs with little to show for it, I'd call it a bust.

    Nice smokey!
    Can't find if you don't get out & try. And a bulldozed area on the beach is very enticing!

    Whats 2 hours...when you have 9 lives.

    And some folks there spend upwards of $300 for a night at the hotel, some airfare, some to be pulled behind a plane, and then there are the boardwalks.

    It's the adventure! And I wasn't the only one there. But I did get another gold chain today. Poor thing.

    I'm learning its all about taking pleasure in the little things. This morning, I met another tnetter, Rosco53, at a beach to hunt Miocene shark teeth here in MD . He's happy to find small teeth and drove here from WI to do it. I drove about 10 miles to meet him and was disappointed in the size we were finding - 2 opposing attitudes. I'm glad we met - maybe I'll take greater appreciation for the little finds. We try again tomorrow morning at my usual beach - which is within walking distance for me.

    Sounds to me that your favourite part of the day was the rescuing. Good deeds are usually followed by good karma. Good luck.

    If you didn't get any flint, I doubt driving 12 hours and coming up empty would be much of a positive adventure, unless something else on the trip made it worthwhile. I love taking trips too, especially detecting trips. I'm just much happier if I find some good stuff rather than be disappointed being shut out.......all other things being equal. Seeing both old and new friends, and traveling to new and exciting places is always great, regardless of finds, but, if detecting is the point of the trip, not finding anything good is a let down to me.

    Saving the lives of helpless creatures is often my highlight of my day as well. Have had days when we rescued over 100 poor upside down horseshoe crabs. When they get flipped over by strong waves at the water's edge during their spawning, often the next wave fills them with sand and then they can't right themselves. They would basically bake in the sun upside down without a rescue. After strong rains, we often find freshwater turtles washed into the Bay and rescue them too.

    Great job on saving the wildlife Smokey!! This summer up in New Hampshire it took 5 of us and a beach towel to get a treble hook out of a seagulls mouth, he didn’t even say thank you (: but I’m sure he’s doing fine now. Great job!!

    When I grab a horseshoe crab and set it back right in the bay or ocean, some of the looks I get from the hunks and hunkettes on the beach are priceless. Like "you're touching THAT?" I save every one I can.

    Bunch of sissies! Men and women alike.

    That's Cool! What is the point of the hunt without a little effort? It seems that folks that live in large cities tend to think that if you travel more than a hour away from home is a big deal. Try living in Montana, living here it is not unusual driving forty five minuets to an hour and a half to a larger city to do the shopping. Also I usually travel up to 150 miles just to get to some properties to hunt artifacts. As mentioned it is also an experience to see the beauty of the landscape and also see many varieties of wildlife. I live 40 miles from the closest large city.
