  2. The Lost Playground

    My son and I Geocache from time to time and we discovered one in our neighborhood not long ago. The development we live in was built in the early 1980’s, and up until about fifteen years ago there was a hidden playground in the woods, across this great little footbridge. All that remains is a...
  3. Brought the new Nox 600 out for a stroll

    Thanks to RobNC I've added the Equinox 600 to my arsenal, and being such a beautiful day I took her for a walk in my backyard. My overall impression was very positive, and it was nice to get back in the mud again. I ran in Park 2 and tried a pair of the SoundPeats LL earbuds. Unfortunately, they...

  5. Cedar Chest (Globe Box Co)

    Greetings, all. It's been quite a while but I'm back again. The warmer weather is finally coming around so I can head out and start swinging again, but in the mean time my wife and I bumped into this cedar chest at an antique store here in North GA. All the owner could tell me is that it came...

    How well do you really know your theology? 3 MEN, ACCORDING TO HISTORY, WALKED ON WATER The 1st one was Jesus... The 2nd one was the apostle, Peter... Then there was this guy, Juan... . . . .
  7. WWII US Navy Uniforms

    Greetings, all. I was parusing the "Want it Now" section on eBay and came across this, thought with the myriad of collections we have going on out there someone might have seen this. These folks are looking for the father's WWII US Navy uniforms/hats with the stencil "J.L. DE GROOT". Here is the...
  8. A Little Ring In The Park

    Haven't been out too much lately, but I took about an hour swing: 1Q, 1D, 1N, & 5P all clad, plus this little kiddie ring. Not real, but any ring is a ring indeed! The pics were done in a rush,. the family's getting ready to head out for the Xmas tree (yee-haw, time for some blood pressure...
  9. And I Share With Ye A Tale of a Dragon.....

    Unfortunately not gold, but it's shiney and unique. I know the 1941 nickel misses the wartimes, but it is one of the oldest I've found and like it. Likewise with the 1959 D penny; I tagged it because it's one of the few not-totally-clad (.950 copper) I've found. All in all quite a few older...
  10. Of Red Tide and Shells

    Red tide sucks. Omni and I met up this morning on Long Boat Key and both nearly passed out from the thick air and dead fish on the beach. We spent about 30 minutes with nary a signal before we decided to move north a bit. Our next stop was Coquina Beach where I hit 1Q, 2P and this rather large...
  11. Can the 250 find Nickels? Yeah, Baby!

    Well, I haven't been able to get out in about two months due to a much busier than normal schedule, but today it was not too unbearably hot and the kids wanted to go to the playground so I took the opportunity again. I figured there'd be nothing to find being the summer, but I think it was my...
  12. And you thought winter was bad!

    Geesh, tried to get out for a bit with the kids today and it was just too darn hot! I thought the bloody headphones were melting to my head, and the sand was just reflecting the heat right into every pore. I kept it up, but after 20 mins the kids came to me and told me they couldn't take it any...
  13. A Little Bit of Beach Time

    Spent a couple of hours at the beach with the family today and squeaked in about 30 minutes of detecting time: 1Q, 5D, 1N, 1P for a total of .81 cents in clad and of course pulltabs and the elusive SamusClubus Canus. Not too shabby for the time involved. I finally got my sensitivity settings...
  14. W Virginia Limited Time Lead!

    http://www.heraldtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050420/NEWS/504200351/-1/GOOGLE01 Some vandals drained a pond in Scott Depot W. VA, they hope to have it refilled by this summer. I imagine there could be some good stuff down below the old water line. HH
  15. Waiting For Permission: 1859 Court House... SUCCESS!!!!

    Well, I fired off a nice letter to the construction company that now owns a plot right around the corner from my house.? It apparently was the county court house in 1859-1860 and was also a church, parsonage and private residence over the years. They leveled the remaining building a few months...
  16. Dime Bank

    This one was a real surprise.? The house next door has been vacant since before we bought our house, and it finally sold.? A contractor has been refurbing the place, and in the process he pulled down an old laundry line, so I figured being right on the property line I'd go ahead and try my luck...
  17. 45 minutes At The Park

    No big whoop, but 45 minutes in the park netted .21 in clad (2D, 1P), a piece of a zipper, an aluminum whatsit and the face off of a timex.? I finally moved out of the sand and headed over towards the soccer field which is where I found the watch face.? I hit that area pretty hard but didn't...
  18. Anna Maria Island

    Well, we finally made it out together.? Omni and I (and our faithful young sidekicks) met up about 945am and headed out to the public beach on the Gulf side of Anna Maria.? The beach was packed and the surf (and tide) were high.? Since he hunts with a water unit he hit the surf line and I hit...
  19. Sarasota County Fairgrounds

    Well, a bit of a disapointment but still a day out swinging nevertheless. The fair ended yesterday and I had hoped to actually get into the fairgrounds but they had not completed the break down so I had to content myself with the grass parking lot where the carnies park. Holy crap was there a...
