    Hey everyone, check in and say hi to this thread and in a week Mrs OxShoe may pick your name out of a hat to win both seasons of "Detectorists." Bonus footage on both CDs. Still in the wrappers.
    If Pokey keeps chewing the rug she might be included.

    I know I know! I’ve heard that it’s pretty funny. If you win this you should mail it to me so I can watch it. Then I will mail it back with a wheatie since you have gone without digging one for years!

    Hi Drew and everyone! Have already watched the 2 season's of Detectorists and actually tossed our old DVD player years ago! However, hope everyone's having a healthy and great start to 2022. We're cold and frozen down solid here in northern VT (16" of new snow Thursday and yesterday) so can only plan for still producing, and new spots come later in March or early April. Just got a whole boatload of new display cases from Southern Star last week. I've catalogued my 4 most productive sites from 2021 into some of those, with the others reserved for some older sites I've never gotten around to displaying yet.
