Got lucky today :)
« on: July 04, 2007, 10:21:49 AM »
Got out early this morning, the weather wasn't looking very good. Started raining when I pulled out of my driveway :)
I made plans with some friends to meet at a park on the water about 20 minutes away. This park hosts a great festival every year and it's one of my favourite's :)  I thought it was this month some time.
When I got close to the park they had a banner hanging above the road "Waterfront Festival June 22-24th" !!!! Man was that depressing; how did I miss it! To make things worst the skies opened up and now it was pouring!
A couple minutes later I arrived at the park :)

Sat in the car a few minutes and the rain started to subside some, well I thought I might as well check it out and see if they left me a few quarters or something :)

I couldn't believe my luck! 2 loonies and I only walked 15' a minute later I got another good hit and was rewarded with 2 toonies and a quarter! I couldn't believe that no one has detected here since the festival :)

I quickly went into FM (festival mode) :) FM is like a organized seated hunt for me, but it free :) I hunt as fast as I can only grabbing the surface stuff to about 1" down, whatever my viba probe picks up. I can always go back later for the deeper stuff :)
Any way I guess because of the rain no one else showed up, I had the park to myself :)
Here's my pile of goodies.

Here's the neat stuff :)
The small ring is 10K; even in FM I can still get the small gold :)

Here's the rest of the loot, it started to rain again so I didn't finish sorting :)
$30.00 in Toonies and Loonies alone.
I didn't do a final count yet but it's got to be around the 40 dollar mark :)
The 2 things on the right are fake toonies :)
