GREAT GRANPAW NEW TO OMDC
- Hey yall, I have been detecting since the early 1970s, have a Garrett
TR discriminator with deep scan and water coil. I suppose that the
technology has me a bit behind. I found some gold in Colorado on
Clear Creek west of Denver up by Idaho Springs, maybe enough to buy a
set of batteries ha. Well I was just looking at some of the pix and
got a good idea on how I will handle the digging as I now have one
leg and use crutches or a three wheel electric chair, I have a eight
year old granddaughter and a four year old greatgrandson, so who
needs to dig?
The transtarodie thing is from a motorhome I just acquired this
summer a 1985 Champion Transtar class C ? or class c- or B+ it`s
all very confusing.
See yall in the funnies, Warren (born 37)

- Hey Tony, Well I never did take pictures of the stuff that I
found, some of it that came off the beach of the Gulf from Port
Isabelle to Key West I don`t have a clue as to what it is, shipping
junk? I got a lot of fishing lures, hooks, knives, tin cans, beer
tabs, a toilet seat, a lunch bucket, a set of keys, a pocket full of
money (none of it old), some kind of fruit or seeds from the tropics,
why did they set off the detector?, one work shoe and up by the cut
between north and south Padre a whole boat. I didn`t know that I
found a whole boat until some time later when a big storm washed the
sand off the top of the bow, all you could see before that was a pipe
about a foot and a half down, after the storm the end of that pipe
was up in the air about four or five feet. In an old abandoned
amusement park I found some of the colored light bulbs, some tokens
for rides or games, they look like the mills that you used to use to
pay tax ( during WWII), a horse shoe and a narrow rail road that I
didn`t dig up! I just followed it for about a block to a small creek
and there it was sticking out of the bank.
Well like I said, I acquired an assistant digger since I last
posted and now detecting has a new convert, my eight year old
grandaughter went with me the first part of this week and when the
sun went down she wanted to use a flashlight to keep on in the dark!
Boy I never did get hooked up that tight.
One thing that I have always done on old farms is look for the
fence post with a horse shoe nailed onto it, the shoe is supposed to
mark the post where the farmer buried his can of money in the post
hole, the guys that did that must have had to spend all their money
before I got there hehhehheh. Some time ago (20 years or so) I went
out a few times with an old timer (even older than me) that said the
old vending people, who were supposed to be taking in a whole lot of
money that never got reported to the tax man, were buring wash tubs
full of nickles and dimes under the porch of their house, we never
did find any of that stuff either.
On those old abandoned places I never did get permission and
never came across anyone to ask except one time I was going over an
old farm and a relative of the owners gave me a hard time about
tresspassing, but he was ok after we talked for awhile, as a matter
of fact he wanted to know where to get a MD.
Well Tony enough of that, what part of the country do you live in,
I am in Oklahoma City for a while, until the Doctor appointments are
done with then on the road again to where I don`t have a clue. It
has been around ten years since the days on the gulf, might do that
and see what has changed. I also enjoyed Kissimmee, Fl a bunch, Old
Town and Pleasure Island is only a mile or two away towards Disney.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL, Warren
