    NW People Of WI...Need to See This!Hello Wisconsin people! Iíve been away for

    Hello Wisconsin people!

    Iíve been away for a very long time.

    Some of you may remember that last spring, I broke my knee in two places, so it put me out of commissionÖ

    Iíve been mending very well, but have a HUGE plate (catching up)

    Some may remember me talking about an area that we bought, that abuts the Gandy Dancer Trail, and that an old train station used to reside there.

    Well, I wasnít ready to give that information up at that time, due to our project we were about to get intoÖ(privacy matters and what have you) And, the potential items to be found (historically speaking)

    However, our project shifted, and this area Iím talking about, plays a pretty important part of our new (shift) ideas. As a resultÖan idea came to me to share the whole idea with MDís (where as the last year I felt I needed to protect it all)

    Well, not so any more. The long and short of it is, I simply cannot do it alone, period!
    (there are acres and acres of it)
    The area Iím speaking of has some good history for WI and the railroad. Ergo, ďThe Gandy Dancer TrailĒ
    (Google it if you're unsure)

    Ok, sorry the post is going to get long (Iíll try to keep it short)

    We own a speck of the Gandy where a train stop used to beÖnot for people traveling, but for loading lumber or what have you (so, itís a bit ambiguous) But, as IĎve heard it (and from what I have seen) our place used to be that stop (loading area or what have you)

    The area is complete sand dunes now (brush, trees and etc have grown in, just a bit) But people have been using it ever since as a through way, for their atvís and (snow mobiles, walks and what have you), since I donít know when. (And we have a slip of the river, under a bridge)

    What Iím proposing is, to allow any mdís to come here and see what they can find (I donít care if you come from any other state) But, the fact of the matter is, I just havenít the timeÖitís a HUGE area with SO much.

    I will warn you, there is so much junk there (I was told from the demolition of the station that was there)
    My detector goes crazy! But, Iíve found wheat pennies, a small amount of clad, real old real red glass, a speck of gold, and some pretty wired itemsÖI just have NOT the time to hit it as it should be though (and thatís the honest to goodness truth) Being I was a cripple all last yearÖand only got back into it this year, but have only hit it once since! (in fact, just this evening. Itís why I decided to post) If you saw my wee leg, youíd understandÖ.lol..it's pathetic. And of course I just am an avid freak about finding good old stuff!

    Hit me up through PM or email if youíre interested in mdíing this area Iím talking about.

    Obviously there will be some guidelines for detecting it, such as either bagging or piling up any garbage you findÖbut what you find, you keepÖreport or not. But, if you find something way cool (historic on the property) itíd just be nice to know and can be documented as such (thatís on ďourĒ propertyĒ and will be marked as such)

    Again, I simply cannot do it alone. However, I will not tolerate folks thinking they can come here and detect, but leave crap aboutÖjust saying!

    So ya know, holes will take care of them selves, but ya have to take some kind of of care, BUT, itís ALL sand! Weíre talking all pure sugar sand.

    If you need amenities for camping/over night stay, just let me

    If youíre interested in this, please just shoot me an email.

    This will be by invite only (i.e. after you have contacted me and we srt up a time)

    Iíd love to pull together a whole WI people gathering and have some fun doing thisÖbut, Iíd have to see who responds to this post first.

    Iím open to most any times

    Just write me!

    I have a couple of vacation days left that I could schedule a long week end and come up for a hunt.
    I would need a motel for over night accommodations; my wife doesn't get around to well any more.
    I will follow this thread or shoot me an E-Mail with an update.
