I do apologize for the lack of updates recently. Life has gotten in the way of both detecting and blogging, and you do need to set priorities somewhere. In any case, I've been back to the construction site once for about an hour (while I happened to be in the area) and rescued one more Williams cleaner bullet and one more three-ring minie ball.
I've been working hard to get everything in order for the next few weeks, because Detecting Saxapahaw is going back to Diggin' in Virginia! The DIV event is a conference for relic hunters and a group hunt of known Civil War battlefields and camps near Culpeper, Virginia. We'll have three days at the Battle of Brandy Station, one break day, and another three days of detecting at a site which currently remains a mystery. On the break day, I'll be going to visit a friend of mine who happens to own property on the Fredericksburg battlefield, so I'll be able to do a bit of searching there too. That's seven full days of Civil War relic hunting, the weather report looks promising (knock on wood), and I'm excited to get out there and recover some history!
You can expect daily updates over the next week as I blog about the trip and (hopefully!) some cool finds. I leave for Virginia first thing tomorrow... I suppose I better think about packing! Until next time, thanks for reading, and God bless!
