Size:  78.0 KBHi fellow dirtfishers, Steve in Winchester, Tn. Retired auto worker, really enjoy my time out in the field, like shooting sports, cooking, reading, arts, music...all kinds a stuff. Anyone want to get together, drop me a line. I'm using a Minelab Vanquish 540 and my wife Char, is using a Simplex+. Have a great but soggy day.

    The photo is of a page that was in American Digger. Thats my lovely lady, first time out she scored a 1940 Merc!!! How about beginners luck! The cases are CW bullets, toy cars, jewelry and such we have found over the last four years. Thanks for the interest. I'm big on jazz, classic rock, classical music.

    I wish it were dirtfishing day here but not even the real troopers would go out today. It was -10 with a -50 windchill last night...right now its 0. Good luck today!

    Last summer I did happen to stumble upon a very small, probably overnight, Union cavalry camp in my town, gave up a few bullets, Gardners, some broken down brass cases , a nice "C" button and a ton of old fence wire. I'll explore some more this week with the new Vanquish 540.
