    You notice that I often took from my friend metal detector White's Blue MAx

    It was hard for me because it took out my time and nerves

    I needed the money, and only on the a new job, I was able to make money.
    I bought my the first metal detector, Tesoro Cibola (second hand)

    My first searching with a new metal detector was February 2.
    The road to the headquarters of 71 Infantry Division was difficult, but a shovel helped to me
    The air temperature was - 20 ... -25 degrees Celsius (-4 ... -12 degrees Fahrenheit).
    I am not lying, Datrus can confirm that in southern Russia were abnormally low temperatures.

    I found the Fixture from the headlamp NOTEK and tag for keys of the radio.

    These items were found near the bunker. The other day I and my friend went to dig that bunker.
    But we just dug up parts of the stove, the grates for the stove

    The ground is very much froze. There are little space where the ground is frozen to a small depth. This is the ground underneath leaves

    Yes we have some strange weather in Russia at the moment. In the south it's freezing and in Kamchatka it's raining.

    The ground is very hard at the moment, also under the leaves as i just found out. I was in the forest 2 days ago and even under 50-60 ck of snow and leaves, it was rock hard. How does you Lada Niva's heating system operate in the cold weather Sebastien? I love the Niva. Small and light, and goes almost everywhere. Close to be a perfect dig vehicle. In some ways even better than UAZ i think.

    Yes, we are all waiting for warmer weather. For sure.

    One interesting item from the field of dislocation 71 Infantry Division...
    One digger dug up this metal road pointer (Quartiermeister Abteilung) where I dug.
    Condition is very bad but oxalic acid helped to me.
