I hadn't been hunting in three weeks. Work has me swamped. So yesterday I decided to hit a very tiny obscure park not far from where I live. There weren't any people there when I arrived. I pull out my ATP and swung a little bit in the tot lot and found some clad. Then I went over to the single bench seat that's in this tiny park. Two swings in I get a strong signal 4" down. I dug down and out pops my first Rosie. Finally. I'm 18 months into the hobby and silver had eluded me so many times. It's not real old but for me it was a thrill. I text my wife and told her I was so excited. Thanks for looking.

Congrats on the silver. You never forget your first. Location is key to most all detecting. Research the history of your area then try those places.

Red though this park is near my house and I did find it on google earth. It's so off the beaten path that , unless you live in that neighborhood near by you wouldn't ever know it's there. I had to  leave with so many people showing up. Doesn't it seem like detectors are people magnets ?

And oh no I will never forget my first Rosie. It was just awesome for me. I have a ways to go but hey , ya gotta start someplace. And thanks.

Cool beans Yes

I remember the 1st silver dime I ever found...

It was also at a park (along a sidewalk) in an area the "old timers" of that time said was pounded dry/nothing left to find!

That was around 1980!

Congrats on your first, you're never gonna forget it...mark my words Wink If there was one, there are probably others. Get out there and keep digging, the stuff IS out there Beer

I envy you guys that were around hunting then! I'd give my left arm to be able to go back to that time for just one week, with today's machines, so I can experience a bit of what y'all did. How many detectors do guesstimate you've been through over the years, Wayne?

I don't worry about people when I'm detecting as long as its legal I feel I have nothing to fear. Some people look at you like why are you digging holes destroying our park but if you do it right you can't even tell where you dug. I don't jump up and down every time I find something like you see on some of the shows so I just don't try to attract to much attention to myself. I also work nights most of the time so I go early morning and not as many people out. Don't let people scare you off you have just as much right to be there as they do you pay your taxes same as they do.

Tony I won't lie. I thought about you about 5 minutes after I dug it. All the lamenting I've done and you told me to stick with it. Well , BOOM. LOL
