My nephews "Big 8 Reale"
September 05, 2019 06:17PM
On his annual 2 week visit to Va, my nephew Ethan passed on the usual 3 day Va Beach trip with the rest of his family, and got to hang with uncle Dave. Having planting the seed years back with a relic hunt, a White Oak Museum visit, and the purchase of detectors for all the kids, there was zero hesitation in his answer for a detecting venture. So we headed to a lazy river to beat the heat with hopes of a relic or too. He was content as my pinpoint man, the couple of bullets and pocket knife we had found, but I needed a break and wanted him to have a go with the detector to experience water swing'n. After a lazy swing over a piece of barb wire that he was convinced needed dug, I reminded him to use VDI #'s. So as I'm relaxing eating my peanut butter crackers watching the guys hunt, I hear, "its a 90 Uncle Dave, a 90 !!" Start diggin boy, and as I wonder over to maybe help him chase this can, he scoops up to handfuls of what he had loosened up with the shovel and I see roundness.
