Headed to an Amish farm tonight to do some detecting with a friend!
Goin on first serious outing of the year tonight, two possible spots if time permits. Going to start out at an Amish farm- well its current occupants are Amish anyways. Its an old local farm site on side of hill along an old well traveled road that at one time was were an early settlement was located- I've heard there are many old abandoned foundations back in the woods. I'll probably stick to garden areas and farmhouse area tonight- ticks are bad around here and so is lime disease. I'm thinking a lot of old iron in the ground, maybe some old copper at best. Second site is some fresh dirt piles along St.Lawrence river were some construction work on a camp has been going on- area was notorious for smuggling back during prohibition era. Have to thank my friend and fellow detectorist Dave for setting up sites, hopefully we will both get the year off to a good start. Will share any interesting finds tomorrow , HH.
