    Trime Time

    Saturday, I got out with Dave & Noah for a day of detecting. We started out at our "Button field". No coins for me, but I did find 3 more buttons for the collection.

    Next, we hit a house that was on the 1875 map. It was pretty void of good signals until I got a 12-30 at about 8 inches. Trime Time!!
