Metal Detecting in Russia (Story 5)
But now, we had to face the same problem, the tall wild grass. It grew out of control all over the place and, of course, cover the stone foundations completely.
Well, Slava and I were prepared for that. We brought a scythe with us and I started an unpleasant job of clearing a little patch for metal detecting.

Everyone used the scythe and cleared a little patch to be searched. We began treasure hunting and searched for an hour but the randomly chosen spots were not productive. Everybody found a few relics, but no coins.

Another hour of metal detecting did not produce anything. Maxim and Misha decided to go home before it would get too dark to do the Extreme Tourism. We said good-byes and they left. I swung the coil a little more and was lucky to find at least one coin.

The darkness was falling upon us. It was time to leave the place and finally go to the site of Zherebyata village where we planned our staying overnight. We still had to make it out through some challenging obstacles on the dirt road.
