Finally a break in the weather - no snow forecast so we decided to call Cousin Steve and see if we could go and detect his place. He was busy cleaning and said to call back after 4pm. Around lunch we decided to dash out to a local school and see what we could find. Even though it was sunny, there was a cool breeze and without gloves we started to feel the chill. We detected for approximately an hour and came up with $3.84 and a little cute earring.
We got home and decided to relax and warm up, but there was a phone message from Cousin Steve saying he was going out to detect and just to come on up. We looked at each other and packed the car up and drove up. Up on the escarpment it was c-c-c-cold. We stood around and talked for a bit and then started detecting. In the past, his property has paid out with lots of OLD goodies (See my other blog entries for more info). However, this time, no luck, for all of us. NOTHING, NOTTA, only scraps of metal. Is it possible that we cleaned the place out over the past years? SURELY there is something left down there. We might have to try again sometime, but we might not have the chance as his house is up for sale (CRY).
When we got home, I called my mom to tell her about our adventures. She reminded me about her new neighbours that have a property for us to check out and said she had run into a person she knew from the past that had some property that was older and would be interested in letting us detect it so we could post our finds on our blog. We're excited!!!
Now, if our weather would start cooperating, we'll be able to get out more!
