PostSubject: Hunt'n In The Rain   Sat Jul 19, 2008 10:13 am

I was planning on scanning my favorite volley ball courts this morning. But it started raining heavy around 5:00 am. At 5:45 it started to let-up a little, so I zoomed to the park. It was still raining lightly so I hit a picnic area near the courts which is covered by trees. This is a trashy place to I turned the discrimination up very high. I found a bunch of clad and a strange metal cigarette with a little hole in one end and a larger hole in the other end. Each time I got near the volley ball courts, the rain came down hard. As I worked myself away from the courts, the rain would almost stop. After 150 minutes of hiding under the trees, I was kinda wet, so I figured I might as well give the courts a swing. As soon as I got half-way to my usual starting point in the sand, the sky opened up and it rained harder than it had all day. So I gave-up and fled to the car.



The haul wasn't bad; 23 quarters, 14 dimes, 1 nickel, and 14 pennies.



Thanks for looking!

Thanks Dave. Threw it out after I took it's picture. Didn't know it was a crack pipe. We used to try to use things like this with weed. Very frustrating. It usually fell out before you could light it. When you did get it lit it either fell out then or it shot through the tube into your mouth - which burned. Can't imagine how you'd use a thing like this for crack. Guess you've got to hold your head back so the rock don't fall out then try to light it without falling on your butt.. But I've never tried that junk - so I don't know.

But thanks again for the warning.
