I've enjoyed about 4 hours of metal detecting the past 2 days. Yesterday, I hunted with another treasure club friend and we found several WW II relics and I even found two pieces of very old American Indian pottery while detecting. I went out alone today, to a different site, and found 21 modern pennies, a quarter, a Ford car key on a rusty key ring, and some more pop-tops to add to the baseline number to exceed in order for our Central Texas Treasure Club members to be eligible to win this month's Pop-Top Challenge. The winner will receive a very nice 1928 Standing Liberty quarter. If you're not digging pop-tops and nickels, you're missing many of whatever gold rings you're walking over.
Probably the best find I've made during the past 2 days is a crystal clear, beautiful creek that I know must have been used as a wading or bathing pool long ago during the hot Texas summers, before air conditioning came along. I'm filing that away in my memory for future treasure hunting adventures.
