GARY McNEW'S TIP OF THE MONTH
“Watch for the Indicators”
Every time we go to the beach, we can’t help but
wonder how many people have been there, where they
were sitting, and what goodies they dropped for us to
find. There are a few things I look for when I go to the
beach. First thing is those dreaded pull tabs and bottle
caps. Yes, they’re a nuisance, but they can be a great
indicator, as well. If you’re finding them all over the
place, that usually indicates that a lot of people were at
the beach recently. Another indicator I look for is the
amount of trash - not just on the surface, but more so
what is buried. If I dig up a pile of trash, I will work a
spiral pattern around it for about 20 feet. A pile of trash
like that usually indicates that a “group” of people was
in that area. Another indicator of where people were
sitting is bird tracks. Yes, I said bird tracks! Seagulls
are accustomed to being fed by beachgoers, and
sometimes when people leave, they dump food scraps.
Birds collect in that area, leaving tracks everywhere as
they wrestle over every morsel of food.
It’s unfortunate that we live in such a throw away
society. But we do, so make use of it. If you’re not
finding pull tabs, bottle caps, and trash, then not many
people have been there. Pay attention to how many you
find in different areas, slow down and spend more time
around these indicators. So grab your machine, go out
to your favorite beach, and watch not only for the good
stuff, but also these indicators. Most of all - have fun!

VOODOO PARK
For an interesting article, pick up the April 2010
edition of Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine. In
it, author Mark Schuessler discusses his memories of
a unique – and somewhat spooky – hunt he
experienced in Voodoo Park with the late Kevin
Reilly. It’s a nice tribute to Kevin, who was a GCTC
member and owner of Reilly’s Treasured Gold in
Pompano Beach.
