Hi all,

I'm a history buff and a fan of metal detecting. I'm always on the lookout for a good location to go detecting.

I will be respectful of your property, will leave everything looking just the same as it did when I arrived, and will even take away any trash that I uncover as I am there. The holes that I dig are usually about 3-4 inches across and are dug in such a way that the grass will not die and you most likely won't be able to tell where I've been.

I love properties that have been in the family for years and especially those that had houses or churches on them in the 1800s.

I welcome you to detect along with me. I've got a second detector and will be happy to show you how to use it.

When I'm leaving I will be happy to show you what I find and even let you decide it you want to keep anything.

If you or anyone in your family is interested in finding out if you have any hidden treasures on your property please either send me a message through this board or shoot me an email to NCMetalDetecting at Gmail.

Unfortunately, in a high-growth area such as this one, more and more "old" property is getting plowed up to put new cookie-cutter McMansions and cul-de-sacs in.
