Although it may seem premature to talk about the year as if it was gone, for me, with detecting at least, it might as well be. Between holiday driving and work craziness, my detecting year is practically over. I have a little bit of hope that I may hunt a couple of homesteads in the woods yet this year but more than likely, those homesteads will have to wait until early next year.

In 2014 my hunting time was greatly reduced. I ended with ten silver coins for the year (I think, it may be nine). The best find of the year was my 1867 Shield nickel with rays back in April.  I found no gold this year.

Those sparse results were to be expected though. I hope to do better next year, especially since my boys have expressed some interest in the hobby. I also plan on buying a new detector. I have my eyes on the Blisstool LTC64x v5, from Bulgaria. I love my XP Deus don’t get me wrong but I am ready for a new detector. My Deus will still be my go-to machine and the Blisstool will be my specialty machine.

I feel that in 2014, in spite of the minimal hunting time, I grew even more as a detectorist. Perhaps 2015 will be the year when I really make an effort to obtain permission to hunt private properties. I also plan on traveling a little more.

I thank all of you who stopped by and read my dribble. It means a lot to me to share my hunts with you.

Here’s to a great 2015.
