    I took a much needed detecting trip today to one of my favorite spots for CW and Colonial goodies.
    I got an early start to beat the heat that is almost unbearable by mid afternoon.
    Normally, this is our down season here due to venomous snakes, ticks and yes, the heat.
    I have been watching every one post all these great finds, and it was just eating at me to get out myself.
    Most of our good fields are under crop, so I had to knock on doors to gain some permission.
    I stopped at a farm and noticed the field had been freshly cut for hay.
    The farmer was very nice, and he directed me to a section of the field where pottery shards appeared after a good plow.
    I immediately started digging iron and a mid 1800's civilian buttons. Then another and another.
    It just felt real good to get out again. Gotta Love the Minelab ETRAC!
    I missed this target a few years ago with my old machine.
