Just curious why that area is a good place for the metal detector? Was there a fort/town/landing there? Really cool about the gold coins.

Hey Strick, I?m an hour north of St. Pete, home of Owens and Sons trailers. I read somewhere that you?d like to have a new trailer delivered. I have an old F-250 7.3 that would easily handle that tow out to you. I?m not a professional but have the time if you were serious. Haven?t been cross country since following the Dead around about 30 years ago! Not sure how much it cost FlexPat, to make it to Park City, SLC, Utah, but I bet I could easily beat the pros price. Just a thought. I?m very familiar with the Owens?, had lunch with the whole company while picking one up to bring back to HHI, SC, two Christmas? ago. Have owned two myself as well as my brother. Have sold nine so far to friends in SC.

So are you of the single or dual axle theory for SC 20?s?

Michael.

Old mining camp...lots of mining activity. All that is left is lumps (tailing piles) and a few stacked rocks. Fun chasing the old timers.


Michael- that is a very generous offer. Last time I checked it was about 5k to have a boat hauled across...Tim and I only went half way (Omaha) and said we would never do it again lol.. It's funny you brought up the trailer though because I have agreed to get a float on from a fella down south of me. 2018 model. I like tandem axel just because of the added safety. Nice job on your Master Angler but I wish the pictures weren't so small so I could see the darn thing better..

One of these days if I buy an Egret I'll remember your offer.

Nice finds with those coins. I wish we had done some of that metal detecting when I lived out there. I'm about to pull the trigger on a equinox. Trying to decide b/w the 600 or 800.

For your area the 600 is probably all you need unless you plan on looking for tiny bits of gold. Make sure you get the wireless headphones. Call Me Before You buy so I can run you through it. Shake that cold and find some gold!

Jesus. The trailer should be under $4k and I could get there and back for 5 g?s. I have State Farm, and would have to check, but I think anything I?m towing is insured.
