Talking There's gold in them thar fields......

I ignored some grass cutting and several other things I should have been doing to get myself some therapy. For something. I drove to a different area than I normally move around in and let the gps find me some schools and parks. First stop was way too busy, I didn't do anything but around some equipment and the basketball court. Next area was full of soccer players. I mean full. But I did enjoy some real taco's while there. Didn't hunt. 3rd field was very large and didn't appear to be used as a community site, more for the high school and only during summer months. It was ripe considering the little area I hunted and what I brought home. The necklace is "fast", says "10 kts" right on it. When I weighed it, it said 11.1 G's..... isn't that speed in a circle or something? I got a lot of practice and showed patience hunting in two very trashy areas. Takes a change of thinking to dig in amongst all that stuff with the standard coil I was using. The wheat was added appeasement.

Dang, I resized them hogs.

Glad to see you had a successful "therapy" day. That sure is a nice chunk of gold. Too bad I wasn't there to see it. It is hard to find field areas to hunt on the weekend. Especially during nice weather. Congratulations on the finds!!

Nice. Thanks. Hadn't checked. That's cool. Sort of takes care of the extra Lesche and the other "digger" special I saw go by yesterday and jumped on. And then some. Cool.

Looks like you got some good therapy there. I needed some therapy too on the way home today stopped by the basketball courts in Dunedin Park, dug 41 pennies and no bling
