That is Louisiana for you, it is summer time the standard forecast is for afternoon thunder showers, from April to October. If Sidney Torres Park is still off Judge Perez behind the auditorium or Police Jury Complex you can get there from the parking lots. If you find any golf balls, I probably drove them there. Remember when the ground is wet, signals are magnified.

Johnny

P.S. If you can find your way to behind Andrew Jackson high School you may find some Civil War stuff.

Yeah the park is there still I actually know Sidney Jr personally his brother Tony was my best man at my wedding (RIP). I actually went to that park a while back and it looked liked he had it totally redone very manicured. My uncle lived in the Parish until Katrina.

I know Sidney Torres the attorney, about 70 years old. Knew his mother Lina and his father Sidney, all of my life. You probably know his sons. P.M. me your uncle's name and I will send you my name.

P.S. The area east of the Chalmette National Cemetery, that was once part of the Kaiser plant was the site of the Confederate Line. By the time I was allowed to leave my house as a child the area was all ready fenced in, and i was not allowed to go there. Some of the older kids told me about it. There was all kinds of junk left over from the CW, and large pits of some kind of liquid waist from the refinery there also. The last I heard they had turned into some kind of industrial park, not sure.

Still learning what all T-net has to offer and finally stumbled on this thread, anyhow I'm from Washington Parish, I live between Franklinton Louisiana and Tylertown, Mississippi literally on the La/Ms Stateline. I love anything dealing with history and I've been detecting for 20+ years. Hope to hear from some of y'all soon and possibly one day we can do a little swinging and digging... "D"

Im in Monroe. Done lots of research on this area and get no permission to hunt or, its either concreted over or a business is built on top of the spot... The old Fort Miro area, forget it. Ive even found several old homesites from the early 1800s along the river, but no one wants you on their property. Its really discouraging. Ive found a few oldish pieces of silver in Forsythe park.
Really have given thought to just selling all my equipment. Gets tiring of reading, reading and then get turned away, once you find something thats interesting.
lol, dont let me get ya down. Its a fun hobby,just frustrating now days.
John
Any new Hunts?

Folks, I have a book coming out that y’all may want to read or tips and techniques related to digging in Louisiana. I’ll probably finish the draft this upcoming summer and should be coming out the following year if all goes smoothly. I’ll post the details here once it’s done. Cheers, Buck
