Hunting Treasure with my Granddaughter

by Jim Stout
(Hardin, Texas U.S.A.)

I had my detector loaned out to my cousin Lloyd in California. He had recently returned my detector and on a sunny weekend, I decided to test it out.

My 5 year old granddaughter Evelyn, wanted to go along so we headed out near the house in Liberty County Texas. Soon enough, we got a signal, and I told her that it was a can of some kind.

She looked at me in that matter-of-fact way, and said, "let's dig it up!" So we did. The Something Lite can was exactly 4 inches down, just like the reading.

Evelyn told me that "we needed to dig up that can for recycling and save the planet..!"

Well, I never thought a beer can would be treasure. But it is cleaned up, flattened out, and displayed as our first find together.

I hope that your hunting is just as good.

Jim, You Gotta Love Kids!

Jim, that was great. Kid's will say anything. What your grand daughter said was the perfect example. And that is quality time you spend with her.

I can't wait till my grand daughter is old enough to go with me. She's only 20 months old, and I already have a metal detector for her!

Thanks Jim,
