Spur and dino egg :D

I didn’t detect much lately because the weather – it is either cold, rainy or both. Twice I went out last week only to feel really crappy because of my nose that is constantly running in the wind. It’s really annoying because you can’t just wipe it every minute, first of all. SEcond, my hands are in muddy gloves, and I’m holding stuff and my tissue is somewhere in a pocket I can’t reach because my hip bag strap is going over my jacket on that spot. I posed the question on the metaldetecting facebook group and got lots of tips. One guy said I was acting stupid and I should just wipe my nose. But I got the solution from awoman who does skydiving and she said that the wind on the eyes makes the liquid go out of yoru nose for some reason. I went to buy safety glasses and now I went around in icy wind for 2 hrs and didn’t reach for my tissue even once ! Ha. I couldn’t see at some point because of condensation but it shuold be possible to make some holes in it.

Some field I visited a few time on my own and i found some older items there. Also some guilded thing, as far as I remember, so it’s a good spot. I recently looked on the Ferraris map and there used to be a road that is gone now. THere’s a part of the field that goes downwards so I guess that’s it. Don’t know about how people went about when they decided to fill up a road.. they cover all the nice old stuff with ground from around so I guess that kinda sucks, but if you’re lucky you will find stuff that was lost a bit further from the road then ?? I have another old road nearby that gave good stuff sometimes so I prefer search around these places before I go somewhere else.

Here’s a good bit of spur, my first ! And something that was irregular, smooth and gold color but not a stater, again.. Some kind of Mozart’s head. And then the strangest totally white/grey egg-shaped stone. It’s not even perfectly round, but a bit more egg-shaped. There are some small orange squid fossils lying around but this is something I’ve not seen before. I guess just a silex rock.. Oh and I got a free grocery bag lol.

Finally some field detecting

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.
