Looks like I’m done for a while. They say we won’t be above 30 or for a couple of weeks, and may be getting a big snowstorm. That’s just as well, I guess, got out today for the first time since Friday, and it was miserable cold. Ground is starting to freeze — in that state now where the first inch or so is frozen — won’t be long ’til its all rock hard.
Today’s hunt was lousy, 5 wheaties and nothing shiny. Its a close by site — wanted to go to Friday’s site, but it is far and didn’t want a long drive in case it snowed today. Today’s site was one I discovered over Christmas week, and have yet to get a silver out of, tho I think I have at least 10 wheaties there. This is a place one of my acquaintances told me he worked hard for a period of 2 months and dug everything, so I am determined to get a silver out of there, more for curiosity’s sake than anything else. So far, it looks like he did get them all (the main part is totally dead so far), tho I am getting some deep high tones around the edges of the site.
We’ll see, might be a month or more before I am out there again, and this is a low priority project for when I need something close.
