Go Up Go Down

From the land of the Bluenose.....there are those who purchase machines and forever hide them in a closet. Never feeling the joy of swinging the white orb. Weekend warriors who only go out when a buddy sticks a cattle prod in their backside while they are watching the NFL on the tube. The die hards who go out every chance they get providing the weather is suitable and the "honey dew" list is complete. Last but not least are the "Crazies" who go whenever, where ever having no regard for the climate!
The friendly giant, Navy Davy arrived before the designated time and we motored off to Smiley's Provincial Park for a dig on a rather overcast and cold day.
{alt}
We entered the park observing the signs which were the least of our worries as hunting season is afoot!
{alt}
Of course then again we were not paying heed to any signs neither!
{alt}
For the first 20 minutes not a coin was found as the place appeared to be as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's kitchen with only a yellow washer for the washer toss game found but as we moved back in the park our luck changed as the pennies started jumping under our coils.
{alt}
For the next couple of hours we dug this and that with not much of note found save for a 1932 penny as the skies opened slowly at first then with a vengeance poured down on our parade. Navy Davy immediately bagged his Ace 250 with a "designer" clear plastic bag while my Freedom 3 Plus was bagged unceremoniously with a wrinkled, dirty and not too esthetically pleasing green garbage bag. With that done we proceeded to get soaked to the bone and slowly moved back to the car where Navy Davy had a mobile Tim's set up (thermos full of great hot coffee) which we drank our fill and headed out to the next spot arriving in Hantsport in a torrent of rain...now mixed with snow! Undaunted we dug with our clothing becoming heavier and heavier and our swings slower and slower. Got so bad that on the 10 yard penalty box on the socceer field I couldn't see the net. Enough was enough and we called it a day and drove home while planning today's outting....if it happens. Navy Davy managed a dozen coins for the day. Didn't know what I had at first as you can or cannot see.
{alt}
Here they are cleaned up a tad and included a dinkie, kid s ring, washers, finepix logo and 65 coins @$3.54
{alt}
Here is a shot taken when I was dropped off at home. There is now about three inches of that nasty four letter word laying about.

What kind of detectorists do we have in Nova Scotia you ask?

 Well, at least you got some time in before it hit the fan. We had an odd 50 degree day in Chicago 2 weeks ago, so of course we went out for a few hours. Unfortunately the warm weather brought winds of 40 miles an hour with it that was blowing down huge tree branches and even a large tree. Had to keep one ear open for targets and the other for the gunshot sound of breaking branches overhead.

 I found only one coin worth mentioning in 4 hgours of swinging,an 1899 Barber dime. Was it worth it....you betcha!

pretty good haul considering the weather. I have yet to hunt in the rain though if I had a chance I probably would.
