Metal Detecting: SILVER at an Abandoned Rail Station
The City of Galion, Ohio granted permission to metal detect the old Big 4 Railroad Station, which was dedicated in 1900. In addition to silver I also recovered some pretty interesting artifacts as well as a token from 1908.

Metal Detecting: 1890 House Gives Up Silver !
I drove 40 miles to a new permission: an abandoned home built in 1890 with a little history to it, located in a small, rural village. I'd been told it had already been hunted by other detectorists, so I took this property as a challenge. A silver 'first' was waiting for me, as well as several items the 'other' guys had missed.

Metal Detecting: Another gold class ring find and return !
You never know what you're going to come across while metal detecting. In this video, I almost passed over a signal, thinking it was a pull tab...am I glad I didn't ! This is my THIRD find-and-return of a ring within the past month and a half; before June, I'd never had a return before.

Metal Detecting: Two More Days in the River at Gatton Rocks
Join me in my futile struggle to find silvers in the Clear Fork River at Gatton Rocks. Struggle or no, river/creek hunting offers opportunities that land hunting cannot...in addition to a lot of fun!

As I made the decision that the target would be my last for the day, little did I know it would turn out to be my oldest coin yet, as I've now joined the 1700s club! Huge thanks to Hiluxyota and MentalMetal for sparking my interest in river and creek hunting!

May 2  2014 Ball jar lids and milk glass liners...
Just what you want to watch...a newby with a lower-end detector. Rural Ohio at the site of a long-demolished home, which had been built sometime around the turn of the century. There's more of these liners in the ground there, and I WILL be going back with Steve-O and Special K.

Dear Private Citizen
In addition to being a detectorist, I'm also a freelance writer. Recently, I wrote a column entitled 'Dear Private Citizen,' which ran in the local paper and was shared extensively on social media. The Mansfield Baptist Temple's media department put together a video for Sunday services to honor first responders, using a condensed version of my column in the narration. I am deeply honored and humbled that they did so. You can read the entire column, under the March 2016 archive, here: http://mpd135.blogspot.com/

Metal Detecting: 4 More Foreigners in the Park and a 90 Year Old Token
Back on the wooded (steep!) slopes in the park, four more foreign coins and a Sesquicentennial Exposition token see the light of day once again. Plus, a local historian/writer provides me with a 128-year-old map which shows original walking paths and a long-gone wooden foot bridge in the park.

Metal Detecting: SILVER in Immigrant Woods
The park just keeps on giving up her treasure, although my hot spot finds are becoming more scarce. Two 1800s silvers pop out of the ground along with another old German and a guest appearance from the other side of the Pacific Ocean.

Metal Detecting: BIG SILVER Bucket-Lister !
Short, very sweet hunt at the old Boy Scout camp produces a silver I thought I'd never see. Well worth the effort it took to get down to the area where it was found and validates the area's nearby natural attraction, which was popular with tourists and picnickers since the mid-1800s. Be sure to visit these sites as, when I'm not metal detecting, I am a freelance writer. mpd135.blogspot.com 'A Veteran's Story' on Facebook

Metal Detecting: Five Days in the Old Park recap
In this video I've included all the coins I've recovered during five hunts in my favorite park; coins recovered while trying to stay upright on a wooded hillside. The bumps and bruises from falling, I'm sure you'll agree, were well worth it! Shannon's channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpJAEjRqcJ32xQQnbTkpJmg

Metal Detecting in a River Swimmin' Hole
Traveled out to a rural, well-used river swimming hole that's been around a long time. Nothing remarkable, but I only covered a fraction of the area. I think it'll become a frequent hunting spot!

Metal Detecting: Gold Wedding Ring Find and Return !!
After the local paper ran a story about the high school class ring find and return two weeks ago, I received several emails from folks asking if I could try to find their lost jewelry. One, though, stood out: a 78-year-old disabled US Army vet who'd lost his wedding band in a garden FIFTY YEARS AGO. What happens...well, it's unbelievable!

Metal Detecting First Gold of 2018 !
I went back to the old Boy Scout camp and broke a cardinal rule: don't hunt in the woods during extremely windy conditions. It almost caught me when a dead limb weighing at least 100 lbs crashed to the ground about 15 ft ahead of me. That was a good thing because, after moving to an old athletic field, I found gold!

Metal Detecting: Winter Silver, Jewelry and Old Coins !
A collection of clips from several winter hunts so far, when the weatherguessers gave us decent conditions here in Ohio. Woods, farm, beach and even a drained marina were hunted. *note: all the beach jewelry turned out to be junk. Grrr!

A different old park yields a first find; my long-time pal Ron and I then explore an old mansion we just got permission to hunt. The mansion was magnificent in it's day and it is heartbreaking to see it in such disrepair. It is awesome!

Metal Detecting: Queen Silver and her foreign cousins
This park is continuing to surprise, having produced old coins from eight different countries. Today, six more were unearthed....and not a single American among them! The last one was the most shocking of all...

Metal Detecting: Foreign Coin Frenzy in South Park...and Cam Issues
Forgive the quality; iOn's iCam, which I use, failed me. In some clips it cuts the footage off; In others it just doesn't record. 3 more coins from other countries found in the woods of South Park, the oldest being 1810.
First beach hunt of 2015
First time out detecting in 2015 required a 650-mile trip....but it was well worth it. Beach detecting in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Early-season, so not many great finds....but there WAS a gold earring.

Oldest coin yet !!
Two day hunt in one of the city's oldest parks produces my oldest coin find yet...and a history lesson to boot. Never let them tell you a park is 'hunted out.'

Metal Detecting: Big Silver and GOLD at an old swimmin' hole !
Jeremy and Monica gave me permission to detect on 22 acres they own, which includes a large pond that was a very popular swimming spot decades ago. After unearthing silvers (including a Masonic sterling pendant) and wheats, their son Payton, who used to ride my morning school bus route, joins me and we find GOLD in the form of a 49-year-old class ring. If I can find its owner, I'll post a video of the ring's return.

First video post from April/May 2014 of my newfound hobby. Any suggestions or comments appreciated!
Of Lincolns and back spasms...

Back at the Pool: Invasion of the Canadians
Day 2 inside the fence on the virgin pool grounds produces scads of clads...so many that I stopped digging some of the targets and only filmed a fraction of the finds.

A short hunt, found a few clad and a thunderstorm.
Two parks in two days...the mash-up
The first park sucked badly...very trashy. The next? A little silver appears in the hole.
