A Visit To Farm Country Yesterday
Quote this message in a reply
Hot and bone dry around here - no real rain for weeks No

Not a lot of places to hunt at present time but managed to make it out to my buddies property yesterday where I once found that change purse full of old silver/etc. coins in his field.

This portion of the property once had a livery and blacksmith shop on it so not much beyond iron relics are pulled from this part of the property but I did happen to pull a nice old flat button right at the end using the FR Yes

You wanna talk about "iron infestation" = try hunting a blacksmith shop site once!

I really feel for you in the iron areas. Man MRH, they are a nightmare. I would have found a Pony following me around as a blessing to all the bad signals. At least I would have had somebody to bitch to about it. I'm glad to see you got out. We were blessed with some rain this early Monday a.m. from around 4:30 on to 7. Hardly a squirt though at .34 inches. Lot's of thunder and lightning. We are in a rain deficit at this point for July. Our water bill for the last quarter at the soccer fields was $9K. Fields proper though, because of irrigation, green and happy. And they are telling us now, today, Monday, that Friday we'll be pushing 100F. Not unprecedented but hard to imagine when you're sweating your Quinones off at 86. Chuckle

Nice catch on the button, Yes Beer , and I wish you the best of luck for the next few hunts. Stay cool my friend. I'll make it up there sometime and maybe we can go for a fall leaf hunt in cool weather! You usually kill it up there and I would love to see you operate your detecting sense.

Nice button! I gotta say you are a better man than I am sticking with it at the old blacksmith site , I tried to hunt one that had been foreclosed on ( a buddy works for the bank). 
   I lasted an hour and only had bits and pieces of iron that weren't recognizable as anything and sore knees from getting up and down to "dig everything".

I can only imagine all that iron. I know a few machines I would not use. Anyway, I got thirsty looking at your pictures. Damn it's dry. Congrats on the button and the will power. Thanks for sharing.

No thanks on detecting a old black smith shop! Lol. But nice snag on the button. Hopefully you'll get some rain soon. Keep cool and watch out for hidden holes! GL & HH
