How to Find the Best Places to Go Metal Detect
I quickly learned about 6 months after I started metal detecting that I need to do something different. After detecting for over 3 years now I have hunted the local beaches, every park and almost every school yard within 20 miles, I want to hunt something different. I wanted to hunt something really old; I want to go Metal Detect somewhere that would give me the greatest chance to find something worth bragging about on all the Social Media outlets. I wanted to find relics that have a story.
I was so tired of reading and seeing all the pictures on Facebook and other social media outlets about these great finds from the 1800’s or even older, why can’t I dig up something like what other people seem to be finding?
So I started researching about old places and the history right here in my own zip code, I was shocked at what I was quickly learning about my own city. I couldn't believe how much history had taken place within a few miles from my own front porch. Even though I grew up here, I most have forgotten about all the land marks that I have passed by over the last 40 years, tunnel vision as most would call it.
After I took some time and did the research I was amazed at how easy it is to find hidden or forgotten places in any zip code. Once I started posting on the Social Media sites about all the older and interesting areas I am finding to go and hunt, I was quickly being asked to help locate places for other people in their zip codes.
With all the information that is available online for research to each and every one of us, it’s a wonder we are all not digging up relics to submit to a the local historian societies or even better, posting them online to sell for some serious cash.
