British Boot Buckle and Cold weather Researching
british boot buckle
I live in new York. I am 49 years young and I love to fish and metal detect. Metal detecting has taken up much of my time in the past 5 years .
I have found over $15.000 in gold jewlery in that time. I also got hooked on the history of my area and i have found Colonial coppers .Spanish reales and numerous coins from the mid 1800's.
A friend of mine and myself located a British redoubt and decided to hit it. Unfortunatly we statred hunting right when the weather changed to winter. We found some musketballs a few King George coppers and a British boot buckle which is in pretty good shape.
Now i sit at my Computer during this cold winter awaiting the thaw. I am doing a lot of researching and located a Civil war campsite where families from draft dodgers and deserters lived waiting out the ending of the Civil War .
They lived there for a few years in which many people past away and i am hoping their cache is still there to be found. I got permission to hunt it and now i just wait till spring. I am hoping this could be a jackpot. i spent over 100 hours (3 Years) on the reseach on its location and finshed up this past November.
I am like a kid waiting for Christmas to come. I am Confident that this area is Virgin territory and just waiting for me to arrive. When i hit it i will let you all know how i did.
Untill then Keep reseaching while the weather is cold and hopefully it will make it a hot summer. I am already hot on a trail of another site I hope to finish up the reseach in another 10 or 15 hours and I should be set and pretty busy when the weather stays at 50 degress.
Good luck Robert
