Saying Hi to some like minded folks
Quote this message in a reply
My Name is Nicholas I'm a 53 year old treasure hunter in the great northwest.  I specialize in river digging old swimming holes, ferry crossings as well as riverside docks from old resorts/retreats/hotels.  Research is the key to my fun and I have amassed an impressive library of local history focusing on river life in Oregon and Washington.

The rivers are high right now because of the rain, been raining here daily since 1934 Sad, this gives me time to research and I have 30+ promising sites to hunt this year.

I have had some great finds which has kept my better half's enthusiasm up when I commandeered her garage space to build a relic dredge.

To keep this sport interesting and challenging takes little more than a touch of treasure in the basket to motivate yourself to find better places learn stronger hunting techniques and look at the world around you as it was 100 or more years ago to go where they were.

If your ever in Portland Oregon on a summers day look me up and we will get wet together

Welcome to the forum from NE Ohio Riverdigger! Looks like you've taken the river thing to the limits! Will be really looking forward to seeing what you find. I do the rivers here in the hot summer months when the water is low. But I just snorkel and wade and check the rock cracks at swimming holes. I've done fairly well with a white gold ring, an old token and a ton of clad and fishing weights. Welcome aboard!

Man, that is awesome. Helps to remind everybody too, that there's more ways than just metal detecting to find treasure. I can't wait to see your finds and some video. This is gonna be sweet Yes
