    We're Heading back to Connecticut in April. Can't wait!!

    We're not sure exactly where we are going to stay yet. In the past we have stayed in Rocky Hill. We had such a good time the last two times we were there that we're heading back.
    We will be arriving early morning on Saturday the 12th of April. My buddy Tim (NOAH) will be accompanying Alec and I this trip.
    I really hope that we can get together with some of our New England friends this trip as well.
    If anyone has any free time that week, we would love to get together for a hunt!

    We appreciate the welcome Al. I really enjoyed the field hunts last time. I'd be happy to come home with just one copper. If not, oh well, I'm going to have fun trying!
    we will definitely be there Tues & Wed. and probably Thurs. I'm looking forward to hunting with you guys again. Thank You, Don

    Hi Al! I'd love to join you if you'll have me and meet all the mid-westerners. I can't believe it's been a year since we emptied Southwick. Hope to hear from you.

    It's getting closer!!!
    We'll be leaving Illinois 30 days from today. ( arriving and ready to hunt Saturday morning, April 13th. )
    I'm looking forward to seeing you guys again. Other than our arrival time, we have made no plans yet so we are open to anytime / any day for whoever might have time to get together. It's noah's first time out there. I think I might have to plant a few Rosies for him to find. LOL

    The beauty of detecting in Connecticut is you can get a Rosie and a KG III right next to each other! Pretty hard to do that in Illinois (yes I remember)!
