  1. Welcome aboard Goonie ! 🏴‍☠️ I B A pirate too ! arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    You weren't actually in the movie were you ? That would be 🤯


    New detector hunting huh ? What do you prefer to look for and where ,and maximum budget you have to spend will help us a bunch with recc's of that dream detector you seek..


  2. Welcome aboard Elbows ! 

    Sounds like you're off to a good start. 

    Don't be shy . now you can actually ask questions....

    Good Luck out there !  (duh 😆, you're Irish guess you didn't need that?) LOL  Pics of the hoard you find !

  3.  Oh my goshk ! I realize now that what I posted could have 2 meanings...I'll work on that.

    I meant envy your field but hope there's a possibility I might find one of those largies somewhere here on the fairgrounds.👍

    But , yeah on getting permissions on the fields around here though .A lot of farms here uptah camp are disappearing to development 😩 .

    I do keep some opening speeches in a notebook to rehearse but there's always room for more . Just meeting them is a half the battle win .  

    I spent some time last summer here volunteering in the pulling/show barn .....ya know,  getting my cred's in the livestock community so they might recognize me when I do ask or knock.   I was working the sound crew at the same time so got to meet other locals in the fair community . (Including at some of the concessions booths of the non carnie variety ) 

    Plus some of the regulars see me detecting around for the last year. Easy to talk to once they ask if you found anything good .  ( Just thinking,,,I am more likely to show someone that doesn't ask though !  hmmmm🤔)  Maybe that would be a good time to ask FOR a permission ? "No, there's not much of anything good here . Do you have someplace with interesting history that I could look on ?" They'd only ask once and might be a few that say "yup yup hook ya up chummy" !

    Well , something similar anyway..


     You live in a colonial/CW paradise of detecting , guess I'm trying to emulate as best I can but the fair IS 145 years old.  😜   and STILL NOT frozen solid !👍 It wasn't earlier but tomorrow it might be.

     Clocking as many hours as I can in the meantime. Not sure if the new shovel will buy me more  ? arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr🏴‍☠️
