Hi Dottie

have you tried talking to any of the old farmers in the area? I’ve had a lot of luck on properties that seem uninteresting but have had history going back 100 years, tips on where people parked old cars an drive ways have yielded good results even old dumps/ gardens. i find the older generation are more than willing to help as they have an interest as well and no one bothers you as its private property

hope this helps good luck :smiley:


Hi Dottie. If you want to look for jewelry and rings try in and around where people swim i.e local swimming holes, beaches and lakes etc. Best of luck :four_leaf_clover:.
