Treasure Hunting with Rodney (Story 7), page 1

Metal Detecting at Various Hunt Sites In Upstate New York

This story describes three metal detecting outings that I did with my old treasure hunting buddy Rodney in Upstate New York. First outing took place in the area around the town of Canajoharie, New York, where Rodney lives, in 2006. Second hunt was done in the Taconic mountains when Rodney was visiting me in the Capital region, New York, two years later. The last metal detecting hunt followed the second hunt two days later when I was visiting Rodney and his family right before leaving for Europe.
