Well weather has really gone West of late ~ wind gusting and showers ~ This is of course not good as any burnt off areas will burst forth with regrowth and some we want to check over for relics and potentials but there is never enough time ~ So yesterday I decided to to do a Solo hunt ~ Ironically the weather on site turned to perfect before closing in late in the afternoon... so a great afternoon and 4 1/2 hours. Decided to stop off at local camp ground and water front as there were no campers on site and hte place was deserted. Almost immediately I scored yet another ring ~ But it was SEVERELY encrusted with black mud ~ After an hour ~ I moved camp to the military camp and a smoko ~ All the essential nutritional food groups here ~ ( Unfortunately as always i leave something behind and today it was my mug ! But whiel there is a will there is a alternative ! ) The new CTx Mode I have built is working amazingly and while i figure there will always be room for improvement the Mode is SLAYING the targets now and I am stoked with the results. And when I find a lot of "quality trash" signals I simply slip back the Silver mode which has a higher discrimination level ~ I did not collect the many Water and fuel drum bungs ~ and there were plenty ~ But good afternoon ~ plus the second site is MD Utopia with superb digging conditions ~ Note the hole in 25 minutes! Wow factor here ~ There are over nine holes in this picture alone ! Digging heaven ! The battle damaged piece is a safety triad for a artillery shell. This I found in the bush nearby but I was concerned when i head dogs barking ~ and figured someone may be pig hunting ~ and obviously more concerned the dogs might not be able to discriminate between a pig and a Detectorist ! So I backed out of the bush !
