    Hey Sean

    Mate ~ I have travelled and lived and worked in every Australian state and territory bar Tasmania ~ including WA ~ And this area will do me ~ Utopia IMO

    And yes~ it is a totally contradiction from your area of Kalgoorlie and the Atherton Tablelands ~

    Plus to boot we have a massive Metal detecting potential/s as you well realise of course ~

    Just like Inka's stomping ground ~ seems beautiful country.

    Merete, my other half would recall it as she is from Denmark ~ but again ~ what an incredible contrast ~

    After several weeks of just enjoying the incredible weather we`ve had up North ,spent time with visits from friends and Family I was finally back out in the forest yesterday. Not with a detector just the camera as it was way too warm to do any digging anyway. On one of the sites I went to there must have been several bears just moments before , and when I realized it every shadowy bush became a bear in my mind so I noisily withdrew back home to the hammock Made a couple of Write ups later on the afternoon which you can read here if you want --->

    Good Post Inka!

    I'm sure Jerry B will be interested to see the graves of the men of the Royal Welch Fusilliers, including that of the Company Quartermaster Sergeant of that regiment in your link. Very interesting.

    ( Relic fossick and stay healthy ~ )

    Nice score with the German case and the shell ~ a week of giving for free eh ?

    A fellow MD fossicker has donated a spill of .50 calibre rounds to my collection. These are intact and never been buried in the ground. So a nice addition to my collection too!
