    I enjoyed every single minute of my first time detecting with you and Gary. Thanks so much for the generous invite. It was very gracious to invite us to a known great site. It was a beautiful day to go diggin too. That KGII is gorgeous and you found it within 10 minutes of getting to the site!

    Todd , it was a great day and I didn't want it to end . The comedic banter with you and Gary and Donnie was very enjoyable as were the cellar sites , Thank you for your great hospitality Sir and congrats on the sweet looking copper .
