Ninth Silver Half of the Year

Today’s plan was to hunt a private property site, but my permission allows such only if the owner is home.  I of course had a backup plan, and of course the owner was not home.  Not only that, the backup site was taken over; it had become a temporary parking lot for construction equipment.

The backup site, in reality, is a small section of a larger site I’ve been working on and off the whole year, so I headed off to a less promising section of that site.  It was a weird hunt — memorial at 3 inches, memorial at 3 inches, memorial at 3 inches, memorial at 3 inches, memorial at 3 inches, walker at 3 inches, memorial at 3 inches, memorial at 3 inches, and so on.  Just weird.

There was lots of big canslaw, and what I think was happening was this.  The competition thought the walker was just another canslaw.  But, on the E-Trac, it has “that sound”.  I knew it was a walker before I dug it.  Cherrypickers be damned, score one here for the good guys.

I would have liked to hunt the area around the walker the rest of the day, but I imagine the cherrypicker got the dimes and quarters (tho of course I’ll be back someday), I mean, I couldn’t even muster a wheatie in this zone.  But, it was raining, and I had to do other errands.  If I can’t get on the private property tomorrow, I’ll work around this zone.

This is my 9th silver half dollar (7th walker), of the year.  Hard to believe.
