Park 3

woog! I’m glad the whole December-rage is over !!
I really don’t like the last weeks of the year. It’s cold, dark, rainy.. and then shops/services don’t work, or when they work they are OVERCROWDED by people who have vacations and need to buy presents and stuff.

It was quite cold the last days. Yesterday the temperature went up a bit over zero and the sun was shining, but the ground was still a bit frozen. Went to the park with my dog and that was it.
Today it was a bit rainy and cloudy but the temperature rose to 7 degrees. I went out for less than an hour in the local park and I was quite happy that I finally did it ! The soil was loose and I found 3x more coins than garbage (3 pulltabs). The only thing was that 3 out of 7 coins were the old currency but anyway. It looks promising and it’s not hard to dig, and it’s a 2-minute drive !
Just have to go back when the weather is sucky, otherwise there will be too many people watching me !

No pictures yet.. Didn’t want to give away my fun park!

My second hunt of the challenge

Yesterday was a day where it just wouldn’t stop pi**ing down from the sky ! But I was satisfied that my Day 1 was not a complete disaster. Plus we got loads of things to eat since it was Christmas eve.
Today the sun said hello for the first time in ages ! I can’t remember when the last time was that I saw the sun appear here !
Miserable country, urgh.

So obviously, my brain urged me to go out and detect, because the rain would set in in the afternoon !
I went to watch a pasture that I got permission on (via my mum, don’t ask) but it was all grassy and that didn’t make sense, since they said it was ploughed.
So I went to the other recreation area on the other side of town.

Results: 4x 5 frank, 1x 20 frank.. that is our oLD money in Belgium.. You can’t use it anymore but it does look way better after 20 yrs in the soil that our stupid euro-coins do, don’t they ? You never find them ruined like the euros.
I got excited when I dug up the simpel silver ring but it turned out to be a fake, because it had some brown spots on it (Silver can’t get corroded or doesn’t peel off generally..)
My neck hurt so badly after I returned home ! I couldn’t move it. Oh Oh .. Never had that before.

I also included my cheapo xp deus hack: the little ws3 control box is attached to my detector with the 15-euro adapter and a strong piece of double (carpet) tape. I unscrew the 2 screws in the little plastic holder/plug that stuck on top of the stick. So now I can easily take the control box off the stick.

Hope I can get some right info on that pasture tomorrow !
I live right IN a Roman city but I NEVER found a Roman coin (except one very small and unreadable one, i onyl see 2 little legs on it :p) stupid grmbl..
