You never know what or where you will stumble across a great find. I live in an old mining community. Not much left of it now. There were lumber mills, a pretty large hotel (gone except for part of the old rock chimney). This was also the stage stop. Several water ditches run along the hills above my house. It was quite the settlement in it's time. Rocks stacked in every ravine. I'm hoping the new coin/relic mode and discrimination on the GPX 5000 actually works. Ton's of trash to sift through. Considering getting an Etrac for checking out the acreage I have there. I know there has to be a stash there!!!!
