Well, I wish I was writing to say that I have had fabulous hunts finding caches of gold and silver… Sorry to break the bad news to you but I haven’t. I haven’t been hunting much but the home improvement projects seem to be slowing a bit. I’m in the process of building a rustic oak vanity for the bathroom in the basement. I don’t want to say I love building things but it definitely isn’t a nightmare. The time has been spent explaining dadoes, rabbet joints, and half lap joints to my 12 year old. He gets bored learning but he has enjoyed seeing the project come together. I did manage to find some time to hunt at the Wheat State Treasure Hunters November hunt. It was nice. The only work I really had to do was send out a group email with a map and time. We showed up and started hunting. There were 12-15 people there and it was nice looking around seeing people finding coins. We had people from all different levels of knowledge working a site of 8 empty lots. I dug a couple of wheat cents and an interesting coin from 1944 British ruled India. There were guys finding silver rosies, silver Washingtons, and older wheats. I wasn’t worried though. It was just nice to see everyone out enjoying themselves. Anyways I’m proud of where the club has come from and what it has turned into. At any rate, Good times were had and I look forward to doing it again.
Happy Hunting and watch out for the table saw blade. It can bite and it will hurt.
