Last week we stayed on various touring parks in Cornwall , and while there I asked for permission
to detect the dog walking fields, {much to the annoyance of my wife }. All the sites said yes,
and one even owned an extra 200 acres of pasture  which they suggested I try. The limited amount of time that I had there meant that I couldn't take them up on their kind offer this time ,
but roll on next summer.

Great!!

Just the response I was hoping for  ;D I have downloaded google earth read some stuff then read some more.........

kit nearly all sorted and trying to decide where to make the start early next week for the official "popping the cherry" of my Garret....

ring pulls, cans, lead weights, ear tags whatever it will all weigh in nicely One day  ;D a pile of lead here, a mountain of ally there  ;D going to see the farmer at the back of us and see if I can get a formal "Perm" to  search for "juice" personally anything found is something I found  ???

Looking forward to posting about any finds as it will show I have actually managed to turn the machine on  :-\

Back in the 90's early on in the year we were off to pick up the wifes new car. Decided to book a campsite for the night so she wouldnt have to drive too long in a new car.
Got to the campsite and it was empty as it was too early in the season. Campsite cost us 10 for the night. I always pack my detector so asked for permission to plod around the site? No problems.
2 hours later 12 in cash and a gold ring which I gave to the site manager. Paid for the camping !!
