Relics Out of the Dirty Dirt

First lets talk about soil types and what they mean to you. It is this author’s opinion the very best soil to detect in is in the spring time. Why do I say this? Simply put, it centralizes the target in the dirt. After-all isn’t that what were here for is finding New Relics In Dirt. A detectorist must put all of his experience in to his dig time.
