Metal Detecting In Pskov Region, Russia
On the same day of my arrival, we decided to get there immediately. So we phoned another friend who had earlier agreed to take us anywhere in his cargo van. When he brought it over, we loaded the van with food and camping gear and left the city in the late afternoon. Pavel's friend Andrei came along.
It did not take us long to travel 10 miles to the village of Belokozovo where Pavel's grandmother lives. The village looked like any village in Western Russia.

By that point, we already had had one question in mind: how to deal with tall grass at the metal detecting sites? The answer was simple-we had to do it the old way, i.e. by using a scythe. Pavel's granny was very kind to lend us her scythe. She went to the shed and took it out.
