Hey Ken. I think we've chatted via PM before, last time I was in NOLA for Tales of the Cocktail when I brought my detector and got some goodies out if City Park. May have been on YouTube where we chatted. Anyhow, I was just here the last few days, unfortunately without a detector. Just wanted to let you know that they're doing some major sidewalk work on Royal street between the French quarter and Marigny (sorry, forgot the exact streets). I'm not sure how sidewalk work in a city like this compares to San Francisco or other cities, but the dirt looke kind of nice, and obviously the history is there. I was drooling walking past... Anyhow, just thought I'd let you know as I was in the neighborhood. Sending this by phone in a cab to the airport at 4am, so I hope it goes through. Let me know if it actually turns out to be anything. Cheers, and HH!!
