Hi, I am retired and travel full time with my wife. We will be spending 3 months in the Gervais, OR/St Louis Ponds area starting in July.

I try to meet up with locals whenever we are parked somewhere for a while. I have met some great people and had some enjoyable hunts this way.

I am willing to drive an hour or so, which puts Portland and Salem within range.

Anyone interested please hit me up.

Lots of good sites around Salem and the surrounding area of Salem.

I have been getting out 1-2 times a week. Haven't had much luck with silver coins, just some wheaties and a bunch of clad. I am finding lots of quarters so I know the areas I am hunting haven't been hit much/at all. Just still looking for old dirt to hunt. I found a couple pieces of junk jewelry and one silver ring.

Still would like to meet up with locals for a hunt or two. I enjoy my lone hunts. It is fun to really zone out and get into listening to the tones, but I do miss hunting with someone who gets this quirky hobby. Most people look at you like you might be just a little off :mrgreen:

Happy hunting all!

Our club will be having a hunt up at HooDoo ski area in August, up at Santiam Pass, about an hour and a half east of Salem. Mostly clad, with a possibilty of some jewelry. Luck of the draw. Don't know if that fits with your distance requirements or not. Also a sno-park area right next door that gets a lot of use by snow folks in the winter and OHV people when the snow is gone and the trails open up. If interested, PM me and I can get the date and directions to you. Last year we had a half dozen members come up.
