Out of town work created two hunting opportunities. Both new spots, the first hunt was a quick buzz around a town that should really be very good… But I seem to struggle every time I try my luck here!
Maybe it’s partly due to fatigue (Early starts lots of driving even before work begins), hunger (where is my tea) or simply rushing too much and missing the good stuff.
Anyway found a few projectiles, bits of foil and not a lot of anything really, so back into town in search of tee and a bed😋
As Arnold would say “I’ll be back” I’m sure one day I will discover something super cool there!
The following evening heading for home I stopped off at a wee town full of history!.. And mid hunt would have an interruption
Things were a lot more lively here, lots of targets to maintain interest. Right on dusk out pops a sweet as snake belt buckle (second one for the F4, so glad I brought it with me) a few coins were starting to appear into the beam of my headlamp when…
A car pulled up beside me, no biggy I looked up to see the boys in blue, well one actually!
After an exchange of headlights he hops out to inform me he had been called by a member of the public to come check out what I was up to.
Long story short he was happy although something tells me he didn’t share my enthusiasm towards the snake buckle find
It just goes to show everyone is being watched, whether we know it or not. As far as the location goes it certainly was no where dodgy, or iffy. Just on a roadside dirt/clay bank under some old macro trees with a park across the road. I guess the local (or whoever made the call) could have thought that I was disposing of a body, casing someone’s property, about to cross the road and root up the cricket pitch, or any number of things.
Anyway the fuzz headed for home and I continued pulling coins, couple of toy cars, etc. all good fun!
Woo Hoo wasn’t expecting that!
The end, happy diggings
