I am ready for my weekend metal detecting trip. After talking to my wife I realized that the last guys weekend I had was back in 2008.. It was a great weekend at the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl. If you have never seen or heard of it you are missing out. Anytime you have a 1,000 pound car with over 400 horsepower racing on a dirt track it is fantastic. Previous to that trip my trips consisted of bass fishing trips back in 2005.
Not only am I excited for a full weekend of metal detecting but I am also ready for some time with friends. I am hopeful that we have some good finds. I would really like to make some first coin finds. With the age of the places we are hunting I can assume the ground holds indian heads, buffalos, seated coins, and barber coins. I may be a whooped, worn out, dragging butt guy come Sunday afternoon but I am stoked for the trip!
