    Four Dead In Ohio

    Well, we weren't dead but the detecting conditions sure were!

    We typically have good luck in Ohio but it wasn't to be this time. If you want to put a positive spin on it, we enjoyed each other's company for two days and had fun anyway, even if the finds were unexciting.

    I'm glad we were all able to get together for a quick road trip. Yes, the finds were sparse, but the laughs were plenty! I guess my 1894 IHC was the oldest coin on the trip, but I like your Tootsie car the best! It's rare to find them with all 4 wheels intact. Whatever our next trip is I'm sure we'll do much better. Thanks for driving and happy digging!

    I like the first pic the best! All-star team! I like the title too .
    Is that a town hall, municipal building? Must have been hunted already. Did you all do some door knocking? Sooo close, harmonica reeds and old wheats are a good sign. So glad you all got together!!!

    It's an opera house and town hall that was built in 1890. We didn't detect there, I just thought the building was magnificent.

    Well, sometimes it isn't about the finds, but the company of good people. Glad you guys got out to detect together.
