Went out hunting again with Todd & Dave, who I have affectionately nicknamed the “Cellar Hole Junkies”, although I haven’t told them yet.
I had wanted to check out a local site which had peaked my interest. Todd took a look at it on the map, and although it wasn’t an obvious hot spot, we decided it was worth a try.
Todd arrived at my house in the early a.m. and we were off for what we hoped would be a successful search. Unfortunately, the site turned out to be a bust. It was still early, so we went and picked up Dave and try another site. You can check out Dave’s finds and the rest of the story here, on the American Detectorist forum.
Todd and Dave each found silver, and my only coin for the day was a lowly wheat penny, but I got a cool 1898 bicycle emblem, 4 buttons, half a shoe buckle, two spoons, a decorative whatchamacalit, and the biggest ball of grapeshot I’ve ever seen (I guess I won’t be making a refrigerator magnet out of that one).
These guys are so much fun to hunt with–They share my dawn to dusk attitude, have great detecting skills, awesome personalities, and practice chivalry in the field (i.e. protecting me from creepy spider webs and briars). They are also easy on the eyes– What woman wouldn’t want to hang out all day detecting with a couple of good-looking, chivalrous guys?

Sounds live a rock band…”Diva & the Cellar Hole Junkies” Ya think?
LOL-You now own the copyright to that name!
“….They are also easy on the eyes– What woman wouldn’t want to hang out all day detecting with a couple of good-looking, chivalrous guys?”….
…..looks like that’s you, me and you stunt body double JW, out of the frame then!
Well she did say chivalrous John. That certainly eliminated you right off the bat. As for me and Winter…we at least have some manners.
I wasn’t talking about table manners, I meant manners in general 🙂
Oh, okay. Well then Winter and I are out of picture too. Carry on…
Ugh!! Seems I’ve stuck my foot in my mouth again. In the future I’ll have to remember to refrain from giving people compliments–it always gets me into trouble. Can’t a girl just appreciate the opposite sex, especially if they have manners?
Yes Allyson, we are “Cellar hole junkies” I do confess to that. I am very impressed with your attitude and endurance to swing that coil all day. I only know a handful of people that could last the day in the woods with us.
I find it difficult to understand how looking at us covered in mud, sweat, and red welts from the hundreds of mosquito bites would be easy on your eyes?
Dick, I like the sound of that band… lol
hey Ally always fun hunting with you.i’m gonna pack a bottle of cologne next hunt.bats my eye lashes atcha. that 2 inch cannon ball or grapeshot is a neat find! I dug one in upstate Ny where there was a ton of war of 1812 battles and was told they had cannons that small.I’d like to go back to that spot in a couple months.winter hunting is the best!
Not too much cologne Dave–we are trying to repel the Mosquitos not attract them 🙂
As for in the Fall, I agree, I bet that site would produce a lot more once the overgrowth dies off.
That is an awful large grapeshot-maybe it is a cannonball? I’ll have to research that.
Looking forward to the next hunt.
