Just thought I should introduce myself. I am a new member on this forum. I have been a member on the Finds Forum and the AHRPS forum for some time, and I just found this forum. I live in Corvallis, Oregon. I belong to the Beaver State Coin Shooters metal detecting club here in Corvallis. I do mostly coin and jewelry hunting at local parks and schools. I retired from Oregon State University in 2001 after working 30+ years there. My other main hobbies besides metal detecting are fishing, hunting, and traditional archery.
