Hi everyone I hope this day finds ya'll well. The sun poked out just enough today for me to get a couple of hours of much needed therapy digging after being snowed in for last couple of weeks. I decided that since I didn't have a lot of time I would revisit a desert junkyard that I've surfaced picked many times but never metal detected. This site is soooooper trashy but managed to play with my discrimination (usually dont use it) and picked out a few goodies. These finds wont set the world on fire but it sure felt good to be outside.

Thanks don’t mean to rub it in 😉. For some reason some of my pics double loaded then I tried to clean it up and deleted a bunch of pics I didnt mean to, oh well I'm learning I guess so thanks for looking Pep and all the other interested parties :)

Thank you sir, really like the comradery in this site. I start a new job Monday and it's going to eat a ton of my time but I'll certainly keep posting as I'm finding I'm a bit of an exhibitionist..lol. No ive scoped a few nice 1870's railroad sites i want to beep when spring conditions are here so ill certainly share those when the right time comes. Keep on diggin friends and thank for the support. Live free or die!

Very cool, yeah, I’m liking the desert experience not like digging chunky whatchamacallit iron in Virginia and southwest soil is extremely siftable no more peanut butter muck. Like the idea thanks good food 4 thought. Maybe I can stockpile 'paydirt' in 5 gal buckets for next cold snap.....hmmmmmm. Nice property btw!
