Couldn't take it anymore, had to get out there. Braved the 2 degree temperature. Thought a couple fingers were going to fall off a few times...you know how it goes, find some targets, keep on going. Finally quit when my two fingers started to hurt. Ahh but just a few more holes on the way out.

Had the PI out to get retrained on the target responses. Think I have the pennies nailed down to the sound. Dug a bunch to confirm.
Played around with the Pulse Delay control and found I can tune out those foil juice cap lids, yahoo...and still find coins. A bunch of the bigger foil as well as smaller can slaw will also tune out. Have to do some air tests to see how much depth loss there might be on the smaller gold rings at that setting.

It was a good start, probably feel some goodness in the legs and knees in the morning. Man, am I out of shape.

Happy with a couple hours of finds, found my usual two batteries. Best of all found my first ring for 2014, Sterling Silver, 925.
Only I eyeballed it, the PI didn't get this one.
