I didn’t detect fields much lately with all the cold and rain. I guess I stopped going in the last weeks of December.
Now the weather became a bit more dry and less freezing cold so I went detecting yesterday. The fields have been ploughed everywhere for some reason. Still waiting for the green to be cut in one specific spot where I also think an old road went through. First drove to mowed field that I saw next to Romeinse kassei. Parked car next to it, put on rubber boots.. then remembered I had to check if it was Walloon territory on gps.. well yes, I was standing on the f-cking border so no detecting here !! dammit. Drove around in Vechmaal, tried a new field and found nothing at all. Went to Lauw behind Monument where I found some silver and a coin weight last year. It wasn’t all that spectacular but I did have some keepers in less than 2 hrs. I have the very annoying condition that my nose runs like insane when I’m walking in the wind. I tried wearing a mask today but it didn’t stop the nose from running. Someone on facebook said it’s liquid that is produced by eyes because of the wind in the eyes, and suggested to wear anti-wind goggles like they use in skydiving. It’s so annoying that I can’t even stick around longer than one hour.
Did find :
– blue bead. Seems uneven so old and not plastic ?
– dog badge ‘Lowaige’ which is French for Lauw. I already have 2 others of teh same kind with the old fastion names of Nerem (Nederheim) en Koninksem (coninxeim or so :p)
– old coin (judging by shape older than 1700) with VH stamped in it.
-some pin with bright pink/green/black squares
I used the HF coil with Hot program – GB 80 – Sens 97 – 34khz – 1 disc – 2 reactivity. Actualyl expected more since there should have been an old road where the field is now.
