Valens Legacy In Central Illinois


Recommended Posts

It seems that many here knew my grandfather, and I only hope that I can gain the same respect that he had from man of you.

I am new at this so please forgive me if I make a few mistakes along the way.

I love fishing, hunting, and most of all family.

I have my grandfathers equipment to learn and use and I have a lot to learn about this type of hunting. I went with my grandfather to several countries searching for lost treasures underwater, but never anything like this. I have used sonar, side scan sonar, and my grandfathers underwater detectors with UAV's.

Very glad to have you here on this forum. I always enjoyed your grandfather's posts and the private messages that we exchanged. 

Lots of Equinox users on here who are happy to share info and to learn from you too.

Weclome, Caleb!  Your grandfather's time here was too short, but he made the most of it and we are fortunate for the experience.

We can't come close to filling the void he has left you, but are glad to help.  This site is a cooperative and besides your questions we welcome your input -- verbal and photographic chronicles of your experiences.  Your grandfather Tim would be proud that you're carrying on a family tradition.

      Hello, I like the oldschool format of a Forum over a Facebook, But i do use facebook for local detecting groups.  Ive been detecting for about 25 years now. I mostly just hunt coins/jewelry/relics. I live in upstate New York. My village was founded around 1807 and was a militia training ground from about 1807 to 1830 ish.  My village had about 35 + participants in the War of 1812. I got full permission to detect and keep anything on ALL of my Villages property free and clear :). Lots of good stuff has come out of here. Basically all able body people that lived here during the Civil War was required to participate in that. I basically live in what has been a military complex for a very long time but was never owned by the Federal government. Ill be asking questions in about a detector decision in another thread. Just wanted to introduce myself, say hello, and get some info a potential detector purchase. THANKS!

      Hi, I have found DetectorProspector to have some very knowledgeable members and there is great information on the site, so I thought it was time that I registered.
      I live on a British island which is 14 miles from the French coast and we have a rich history. 
      I mainly detect the beach for military relics from the British wars with France and the island's German occupation during World War 2.
      Though I never target jewellery, I very much enjoy undertaking recoveries on a voluntary basis and have reunited a dozen people with lost rings since I started detecting a couple of years ago.
      I use an XP Deus in the fields and a Minelab Equinox 600 with 15in coil on the beach.
      I look forward to contributing. Thank you.

      Hi all!  I’ve been out nugget hunting and as you can see from the picture if casings and bullet fragments were the objective I’d still be piss poor.   After 15 hours of searching around the East Fork San Gabriel and around Acton that’s all I’ve found!   I just got Jim’s Advanced Nugget hunting though so now I’m ready!   Think I’m going to try upper Piru.   Y’all be cool.   Look for my 17 Gram gold chunk as soon as I find it and update here!
