Not really a wasted hunt
Quote this message in a reply
My daughter had a practice she had to go to so I thought it was a chance to hit a park just a little way from it.
  When I parked the car I could see a few ugly holes , and of course I got to work filling them back in. Just about the time I was finishing up a kid (about 12 or so) parked his bike and asked me what I was doing.
   I told him that I like to metal detect and that someone else had detected here and had left nasty holes that not only could cause someone to get hurt , but could cause the parks department to ban detecting in the park.
   The kid owned up to it , he had bought a used detector and was looking for "something cool" that was worth a lot of cash.
  I took the time to show him how to dig a plug and even gave him a cheap trowel that I carry with me as a back up digger. He had been using an entrenching tool to dig before.
   We even found a couple of clad coins before the cell phone took me back to being Dad's Taxi.
   I am hopefull that Shane will become a better detectorist because of my 45 minutes of a "wasted" hunt.
 I brought home only the pull tabs and can slaw that we dug , but I think I did ok on this hunt.

That's nice that the two of you got together. I went out with my brother yesterday and we do this about every six months because of schedules. He doesn't detect much. So much so that he forgot he has a pinpointing feature on his coinmaster. It was real cool to see him digging multiple holes out in the woods after walking half a mile to the spot and forgetting his Garrett PP in the car!! He would yell at me from the distance, "It says Nickel/gold ring, what should I do?", I'd yell back "Dig it!" Chuckle (Shotgun headstamp!)
