Kicking in-Vlog #1

I wanted to take a moment and let everyone know that I am going to integrate a Vlog into my Blog. I am going to take a different approach than most in regards to finds. I may show my finds every once in awhile but I want to focus more on the hobby as a whole. I have always been surprised about how many views my simple blog gets and I’m hoping that between reading and watching my site will be complete for anyone in or getting into the hobby. That being said I have launched the first Vlog entry and you can see it here. If you want to not miss a Vlog entry hit the subscribe button. I guess my end hope is that I can do some product reviews, news, and general information about the hobby.

Thanks for reading and I’m looking forward to where this is going.

Just get… Outside

Well today was a great day to be outside. The morning started with a trip to a location that has been nicknamed “Silver City”. This site has been producing silvers fairly consistently. The hunt didn’t let me down today. I dug a 1936 wheat and a 1946 Roosevelt dime.
Today’s Coins

I also found a lipstick case that I believe dates back to the 1940’s. Color included!


Upon arriving back home Queen Ukena was a little upset that the “short hunt” had taken four hours. A conversation took place about the amount of time i have been spending detecting. This got me thinking. I started reflecting on my finds over the last year. For those that have followed my blog over the last year, you know that my good finds didn’t start until about 4 months into detecting. And the last 3-4 months I have been more consistent than all previous months. I think this is due to the quality of sites I have been hunting. I did some rough figures of how much time I have hunted over the last year. I would venture to say I have detected 350-400 hours over the year. That would be about 7 hours a week. I think what this means is that I will have to find and hunt only the most prime sites. I am certain that my little Ace and I can make our goal for the year even if we reduce hours spent and increase the quality of our sites.

Later in the day the two oldest Ukena boys and I went into Derby and played disc golf. This is another activity that we enjoy a couple times a year. We then went looking for Geocache called Arbor Lands geocode GCQARB. This was a fun hunt. We had to cross a mostly dry creek and then try to find the cache. We spent about 40 minutes searching for it but came up
empty handed.

All in all it was a great day to be outside! Now the challenge is to get Queen Ukena outdoors with us!

Thanks for reading and happy hunting!
