Boy Scout Pin & #50 - Otherwise a Ho Hum Hunt!

Scoured an older Boy Scout camp I found about 3 years ago and spent 6 hours on a wonderful weather day! Was able to find a Boy Scout pin first thing. Then alls I came up with are a wheat, a buff a rosie and a dogtag. Seriously! Lot of junk too but I'm still cleaning out the signals! I GoPro'd all important finds but you can't hear me on the videos so I'll keep them but no sense posting them. I discovered that you either have to have a lanyard mike with a skeleton case "That has a hole in the case for the camera mike and the USB for a remote mike!" or sound quality is the pits. Of course a skeleton case with holes in it for the USB and open mike are not what the thing was made for, ergo, kiss waterproof goodbye! The videos themselves turned out great! Just the sound really sucks! And I deliberately set the thing right next to the holes I dug and talked rather loud. Still a no go!

So I ordered a skeleton case, a headstrap mount and may order a lanyard clip on microphone if that doesn't work.

Anyway .... #50 FTY the hard way!

Have fun out there guys and gals and HAPPY HUNTING!

Ed

It was okay. Lot of humping around to get what I got. Probably walked a good 3 or so miles to boot. So I got some exercise. That Rosie was below the BSA camp down by the river. The only way to get there is rapel or take the long way around and come back along the river. So the Rosie made it worth the trip.

# 50 is a milestone Ed, so congratulations on making it. Pat is right, still lots of time left to find more silver, especially as the weather moderates. There has to be more to be found at a scout camp and if you're clearing out the junk, I expect your good to bad ratio will improve nicely. I'm enjoying your videos--keep on posting.

Good deal ED Yes

Old Boy Scout camps are hard to come by these days - bet you find some good stuff in there with a little determination!
