    Edgerton (or nearby)?

    My childhood sweetheart, whom I keep visiting, lives in Edgerton. I'm thinking of bringing my detector along in this next trip--2 week trip but she's having surgery the second week--and wondering a few things.

    1) Anyone in the area that's interested in doing some detecting?
    2) Any suggestions on locations to go that won't entail going to the trouble of trying to gain permission in a short time frame. (Except that abandonded house on 51 on the way to Janesville that I've been lusting after ever since I first saw it. I'd love to spend a whole day there.)

    Re: Edgerton (or nearby)?

    Old Racetrack Park would be a good place to hunt ....former sulky race track that has been updated to become a major community park/sports facility. Saunder's Creek meanders through the northern part of the park ..... The border of the park is wooded, which the interior has several baseball fields, soccer fields, and playground for the children. There is a small deer park that is for the residents and visitors to watch the deer interact and change with the seasons. The Conservation Club is also located in the park which hosts trap shooting leaguesand tractor pulls.

    Thanks! I've walked her dog down there but didn't know it was an old racetrack (missed the name) but recognized the deer park. Is it visible where the track used to be?

    BTW, any local laws I need to be aware of?

    Thanks,

    Hi. Wish I would have noticed this sooner. Looks like I'm leaving tomorrow.

    Spent some hours for about 4 days at the racetrack w/ nothing interesting to show for it. One day at an old schoolhouse/church out a ways w/ nothing but a 30-30 casing and some sort of brass gas(?) doohickey, and then another day in downtown areas w/ nothing but a little modern change.

    I _might_ be able to get out a little tomorrow but I wouldn't bet on it either. I'll likely be back on later trips so may post again.

    Thanks,
    _Rich_
