Stopped off at a couple of parks on the drive home from Venice LA.
Off to a coin show today but will take the detector along in case I see somewhere to search

Nice Finds. That is alot of stuff to find along the way. Just goes to show you,
it's not the cost of the detector, it's the person using it. You did a great job
with the "ole" "Ace". Doug (blklab) :thumbsup:

nice job on all of the coins and trinkets! :) Yeah coin shows are where I get most of my older coins too because they are hard to dig in Washington. :thumbsup: Have fun at the coin show! :thumbsup:

a spent shell in a rest area or park could be rangers getting rid of pests like woodchucks,rats,skunks,ferral cats,
rabbits,and such, we had a rabbit that kept chewing picnic table legs and 2 raccoons that worked in tandem to get into supposedly animal proof garbage containers.

i know im not here much but this post is scarey
at what time would this shooting happen, as there are travelers 24/7 at rest areas
not an expert, im in ohio and i think the dept. of wild life here takes a dif approach
the whole idea of a spent shell in a rest stop is scarey
i tried to detect a rest area in pa got chased off and told i could get a BIG FINE
not a big find.....he thought funny....me not laughing

These finds came from city parks in the communities along I-10 not from the rest areas. I googled the root and stopped at four parks within a mile of I-10 along my rout home. I doubt Metal detecting is allowed at rest stops or the welcome centers but next time I pass I will ask the attendants..
