Ernie Bouyoucas: I started this trip in Doylestown, PA
(30 miles N of Philadelphia). I only got to hunt my niece's
back yard due to time constraints. I found about 30 cents
in change, including a wheat penny. I also found an old
.50 caliber bullet of unknown origin.
While in Ashburn, VA (a suburb of Washington, DC) I
was shown to the Battle of Dranesville site by Mr. Ron
Zartman, a member of the Northern Virginia Relic
Hunter's Association. I had e-mailed the club prior to my
departure and he was one of a few who responded and
volunteered to take me TH’ing on a Civil War site. Four
hours on the site netted me many modern era cartridge
cases, bullets & shotgun shell casings. I also found a .69
caliber musket ball, a .54 caliber bullet and another
smaller bullet all from the Civil War battle. Gnats, ticks
and barbed wire were also abundant.
This trip was a marked improvement over my January
trip to the same areas when the temperature was 25
degrees and the ground was like concrete. It's tough
enough to dig anyway with its high clay content.

“Look on top of the white boxes on South Beach – I
found a $1.40 in change last time I was there.” Also,
check the beach prints – look for the “butt print” almost
always finds change there.

demonstrated last month, please remember to use

Jason Petenbrink - Got up early to hunt a beach “on
the Atlantic Ocean” because the water was dead flat. After
three hours of hunting, he noticed lifeguards waving
everyone from the water. As he made his way to the
beach, a 7 ft shark was cruising between Jason and the
beach. This was a first for Jason, a close up look at a
shark. After the all clear was given, Jason calmly went
back to hunting in the water. Unfortunately no gold was
found, just sharks. Jason shared this information with
Stacey the next day after she had already put in her first
full day of water hunting. Jason didn’t want her to worry
about becoming shark food.
Gary del Rosal – He is a former member that moved
to Alabama. He and his family have been traveling in
Spain, Portugal and Italy for seven weeks. He has kept
me (Linda) updated through emails and pictures of his
trip. Below are photos of a coin found in Sagres, Portugal
while he checking out an old fortress/pousada.
