At pro is waterproof , I am not
Quote this message in a reply
My brother dug out an area to put in some patio pavers and told me I could detect it before he leveled and compacted it on Monday .
   Wouldn't you know it , it had to rain today. I thought to myself , it's not that big of an area and the at pro is waterproof to ten feet and hit it anyway.
   During a lull in the rain I gave it a go mixed in with the can slaw , nails and other miscellaneous junk I got one keeper a worn 44 merc .  Shortly after finding the merc the downpour started and my water repellent jacket soaked through, I couldn't get home fast enough. Maybe it will get better later and I can go finish it up.

Remember for the good of the hobby It is better to ask for permission than to beg for forgiveness.

Digit dude, that was smart to get permission at that construction site, even though it was only a small area. Congratulations!
Yeah, I don't like digging in the rain either!
