Sanded in!

It looks like the low tide part of the beach was sanded in for the most part this morning. However, there were a few sections that produced some corroded coins. What does a corroded coin mean? It definitely means that coin has been in the sand for a while and wasn't dropped this weekend. It could mean that the area has not been searched or was recently uncovered. If it were only 1 coin I would say someone just missed it but I found several that were 10-12'' deep in an area. I need to go back there tomorrow and see what else I can find. Increasing your odds usually leads to better finds. Here is a pic from one of the spots I was at this morning.

It's Spring!

I got out of my winter hibernation mode yesterday and got to a beach after taking most of the winter off. It felt good to get out. The water is still in the 60s so its cold but the outside temperature is perfect right now. I didn't find anything great - just a junk ring and some clad but it was fun. Now its time to start getting out more now that its warmer.

No metal detecting...

I was at Ft Fisher last weekend and saw this sign. Thought I would take a pic and post it. I haven't been out in a month now due to work and the weather. But I will be able to get out over thanksgiving. Hopefully I will have something good to show for it too.

Post Hurricane Hunt

First day out after hurricane Mattew. It was not very good. I went at low tide but there still wasn't much beach to detect because a lot had been washed away. It was also freezing, which I am happy about after such a hot summer. I found tons of clad. Clad that had been sitting there a long time but not old (year wise) either. I will be hitting a few other beaches later this week and post if I get anything good. Here are some pics. The first is just my detector and the next two are from my travels from Charlotte back to Wilmington yesterday afternoon:

In this picture you can see water covering part of I-74 near Lumberton NC. It covered the road in the morning; this was closer to 4pm and it was way down.
In this picture you can see the whole house surrounded by water. There were tons of neighborhoods and streets just like this. In some the water was as high as their mailboxes

Hurricane coming!

For those keeping an eye on this storm, here is a great site which compiles most of the data from various research and weather centers:

So far it looks like it will stay out to sea but its still too early to tell.

Recent Silver

These are my recent silver finds. I haven't been out as much due to the school year...I have found a number of rings and such but they were all junk but these.
