So funny you mention this, as I was just talking with a friend earlier about metal detecting as it pertains to rare coins.

As a small child I lived with my family in an old house situated between two very old, abandoned churches--one had a shaded-in courtyard with these huge moss-like trees and a massive, imposing statue of some guy on a horse. Very Stephen King-ish, but so much fun as a kid, so beautiful, and one day a friend and I dug up several old coins in that courtyard that had what appeared to be a nude woman on one side. I gave them to my grandfather and forgot about them.

What was odd was the fact that we just randomly found several of them, caked in dirt, and in that one area of the churchyard. I'd LOVE to go back there with a metal detector just to see what else might come up.

Imagine all the untold treasures buried beneath our feet. I've read that the channels and waterways in Venice have many sculptures and the like buried in the mud beneath the water, tossed in by sculptors from ages past. Now that I think of that I must go Google it, it's fascinating stuff to me.

if you look at some of his other maps along with that one, it becomes a bit more clear. it's wnw of #12 and north of black's bridge. i didn't have to find it; i cheated. in about 2008, i went out to the forked river mountains with a small group led by the venerable bud wilson.

I don't think anyone does it to make money. It's interesting and relaxing.
i've never been able to make the paranormal connection. the other things, absolutely.

no cellar holes. there's nothing left, just as there's nothing left of ong's hat or calico. they're just names on a map.
