    Hello from Southern Indiana

    Hello all ... I decided to join this forum to help keep me motivated and to sharpen my skills. As a wise person once told me "A man that learns from 10 wise men is 10 times smarter than a know it all." I have been detecting for 6 years now, not any civil war sites or fancy beaches here, but still fun adventuring old homesteads, woods and parks. Oldest fined:1892 dime. Most unique find:1937 seagram's medallion. Currently hunting with a V3I (6x10 eclipse,10'dd), AT pinpointer, Whites digging trowel and a 26' small shovel.

    I am 35 miles from Vincennes. We go there often to eat or shop. It is a very historic town.

    I love New Harmony. We went there for a wedding earlier this year and stayed at the resort. We went a day early and rented a golf cart so we could see all of the sites around town.
