Mission started

Yesterday I went out with the two oldest boys scouting properties. There are several properties that I had seen on previous trips that screamed old coins, ask permission. The first couple Istriked out on with locked gates, absent homeowners, etc. Queen Ukena had told us what time to be home for dinner. We’ve been married for 14 years now and I have learned that you don’t want to show up late or miss dinner. Anyways it was about 6:15 and dinner was at 7. I quickly noticed a property that I have been wanting to detect had a car in the drive. We were greeted by a nice young lady who granted permission. It’s an old house on a hill that was very well kept. There were two kids, a yellow lab, and plenty of room to roam. This particular home sits 125 yards or so off the road. The yard is full of old, big, hardwoods. Walnuts and acorns were everywhere. After conversing with the owner I got to swinging and the yard was quite clean. I only had 30 minutes or so and I dug some old copper and brass whatsits. I made plans to make a return trip and I am looking forward to it!

Thanks for reading and have a great Monday.

So I haven’t been posting lately regarding metal detecting. As I posted previously I am trying to get dovetailsanddadoes.com launched and stocked with neat stuff. I also wanted to let everyone know that as of last week I am not a ridercoach for the MSF. I decided that I didn’t want to be a partial ridercoach. If I can’t devote the time to it that I believe it deserve then what’s the point. I imagine that one of these years I will pick up the coaching again. It is a truly rewarding experience and I have to thank Motorcycle Training Specialists for doing what they do. As far as metal detecting goes, I have a plan. A buddy and I have a plan to hit some of the oldest properties in our township as well as neighboring townships. That means we have to figure out ownership, seek permission, and wait for the time to be right. I am excited about a couple of opportunities we already have lined up. I am hoping that somewhere in this mess I may be able to get permission for a pretty cool group hunt location where the Wheat State Treasure Hunters can have a family get together and hunt. The weather is right for hunting finally and I’m hoping that we can pull some very nice coins and relics out of the ground soon. I think we are starting our big adventure tomorrow so stay tuned. Most importantly. Get outdoors and enjoy this beautiful Kansas weather as long as it lasts.
