    It depends if you are really going to use what you find for historical reasons or just monetary gain for yourself. HaHaHa get the gold and get out I am to pretty for jail..

    Re: the great debate

    A 'Do Not Trespass' sign is placed for numerous reasons which may include hazardous conditions, liability issues, and the like.

    Regardless of who owns the property, a person does not have tacit approval to cross the line.

    It's not really any different than stealing a candy bar from the local grocer.

    Without permission, the intent is to steal.

    It doesn't matter what may lie on or beneath the ground, its not the any persons right to arbitrarily change the laws to fit his / hers selfish desires.

    You can't justify stealing with the attitude and position of 'I'm Saving a Piece of History.'

    Without a doubt, condoning theft and violation of property rights seems to be prevalent on this site.

    Stefen,

    "Without a doubt, condoning theft and violation of property rights seems to be prevalent on this site"

    PREVALENT: in general use or acceptance.

    how did you detemine that the 12,910 members
    on this site condone anything?

    If I thought the way you do, I would not want to
    be a member of a site that "condoned theft and violation
    of property rights."

    Re: the great debate

    I have never detected against an owner's wishes or trespassed or anything like that. I have opinions on the matter, but I'll keep them to myself except to say that not everything is black and white.

    The most important thing here is that, if anyone does this sort of thing, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. We only shoot ourselves, and our hobby, in the foot by broadcasting it to everyone.

    And Stefen...you obviously don't know a lot of people on this site and have not done your homework.

    After the way they Jumped Tinpan , Do you think anyone
    is going to admit anything unless they want to start a Controversy ?
    which is the reason most say they break the law on here,
    in the first place.
    and why I take the "HIGH ROAD" and say Live & Let Live
