I don't have it yet. Too much to do. Firewood to cut, dogs to run with, fence to mend and chaos to avert.

One thing about winter in New England is that it gives you time to do the things you don't want to do when the weather is nice. Indoor projects, crafts, woodworking and other hobbies are best done under artificial light in the old man cave. With heat, of course. Reading the occasional book also helps to pass winter and avoid cabin fever.

Then there's the old horse known as research. For every hour I spend at research, I spend 4 hours in the field at a minumum later. I can sit out on the back veranda with my Android tablet and bookmark all sorts of leads on the web which will need more research from more reliable sources. No, I don't believe most of what I see on the web. Only about 10% of it is reasonably accurate. The rest is almost all wrong or misguided at the very least. Everything I find on the web I research thoroughly using my tried and proven resources.

The best ever resource is a first person accounting. Most police will tell you that eye witness accounts are almost always slightly wrong and they'd be right for the small stuff but most eye witness accounts have very accurate accounts of the big stuff. It was a big guy, white with a beard. That's hard to mistake but maybe his shirt color was off or the exact height was wrong. Those things hardly matter in treasure leads. Reading accounts on the web can be accurate despite my admonitions here to the contrary.

For example, almost anything coming from the Gutenberg Project will be 100% accurate. A copy of virtually every out of print book can be had for free.

At any rate, research on the web should only be a very basic starting point, not the end result of a search. Word matches in search engines can be fooled by careless writers. And, with the glut of information out there, incorrect use of a word or phrase can send you off on a tangent.

Enjoy the ride but be careful

Thanks for that GD. Our winters are really the time to go out detecting, the summer being so hot that you don't really want to go out in the sun but it's also a good time to do detecting in the cooler places like under the trees, In winter it the sunny parts that I do.  My research is done at night or very early in the mornings. So no cabin fever for me   Smiley

Indeed. Project Gutenberg is an Aladdin's Cave of information and the best part is the price.
