Just got back from my first Colchester hunt!

I have to say that every day was a real pleasure! The items that I found and seen found, were truly amazing. I want to thank Chris and Gary for their help, their knowledge and understanding for a newbie with so many questions and using the phrase "are you kidding me" so often! I want to thank Don Hickey for the invite and for all the hard work he put into this hunt to make it such a success, picking us up, driving us around and taking care of the food.
Beau, Mitch, Dennis and Christy for all of your help and knowledge on my finds and tweaking in the settings on my detector. Dennis for giving me the shaft! (Personal joke here. I forgot my extension shaft for my detector and Dennis had a spare that he let me use, God bless him!) And my Saxon Brother Jerry, the other newbie, who kept us all laughing through out the trip. By the way the newbies, Jerry and I, both found extremely rare Saxon coins! I am proud and blessed to call all of you my friends!!!!!!
I cannot wait to do it again!

    Was this really your first trip? Seems like you have been contributing to the forum for years. Seems to me a few of us warned you that it would not be your only trip to Colchester. It is extremely addicting and it sounds like you have come under it's power. Welcome to our C olchester family, Chris. I hope to meet you in the field one day.
