Hey guys I woke up this morning with the metal
detecting bug. so I’m down here on a stream, I got my machine here and my handy dandy shovel,
which I found in the woods. My funky handle on it, I just cut down a tree and put it in
the shovel. It has been working for the last 3 years. But ah we are going to work our way
up here and ah see if we can find anything, I don’t there will be anything to exciting
in here. The river is right there. But we are going to be working up the stream, so
enough of the river for now. we have quite a ways to go, so lets get to it and see what
we can find. So here is the first find of the day. I thought
it was a horse shoe at first. but I don’t think it is. I’m not exactly sure what it
would be. Its has some kind of a bolt hanging off it here. I don’t know what that is. It
is flat on the back. Some kind of a spike up here unless that is just how it broke off.
I don’t know, what do you guys think it is from? let me know in the comments.
Well I just found an old door handle. Or atleast I think that’s what it is. Pretty sure it
is. I can see it’s got like a bolt there though I’ve never seen that befor, lets was it off
a bit. I think it has some copper on it here and then iron in the back where that bolt
is. I’m starting to find some stuff I think we might be close to a house site or something,
or maybe and old mill. So yeah that is pretty cool. Still have a long ways to go, well I’ll
get back to you guys in a bit. I just found a big old horse buckle. That’s
pretty cool. Look at the size of that thing, that’s huge. That would have been on the straps
that went around a horse. Leather straps up here and what not. I don’t see, oh, it’s trying
to go back to where it came from. I’m trying to see if theres any writing or anything.
Looks like there might be up top but I’ll have to clean it up. No, I’ll have to clean
it when I get back to the house, but thats pretty cool. So that is telling me theres
old stuff in here. But alright, we will keep on going and see what eles we can find.
I just dug this big old plate up here. Rail road related. It has big old spikes. No telling
the age of it really. The last trail that rolled through here I believe, let me think
about this for a second. The bridge went out in 87. Yeah it would be 1987 I believe, the
last time a train went through here. Yeah not to exciting I know its boring. But it’s
what it’s been so far today. Well I’ll get back to you guys in a bit.
You guys remember when I couldn’t find a date on that bridge? Well I just come up and I’m
still working my way up the stream here, this is an old train bridge, now I just found the
date on this. so i’m guess that they should all be pretty close. so that is what the actual
date was. 1907. I thought was pretty cool. But you can how time has taken it’s ware on
it. Check out this one over here, or this side I mean, big cracks going up it. Its hard
to believe this old bridge is still standing. That little shit. Austin Sirois, that is my
cousin. Check this out guys. I just came across it
way down here in the woods off some logging roads. its an old bus. What is the year on
the plate. 1987. I guess it hasn’t been here that long but there is a little shed there
to. I don’t know if I’ll be able to. No I don’t
think its going to open. Western Flyer, that’s what it says up there.
I think the door is rusted shut. Give me a second and I’ll see if I can get it open.
I manged to get one of the doors open, just a small one. Its in pretty good shape inside.
Now the door doesn’t want to close. What is that over there? An old fridge or
something. But that’s pretty cool, eh?
What yeah do you figure that would be guy’s? Kind of looks like 50’s styling for the bus.
Well I’ll get back to you guys if I find some more. I almost forgot lets have a quick look
at this little shed here. It don’t look that bad. Locked. Some junk in there behind it,
eh? Probably wont be able to see anything. Old power box there. Yeah thats pretty cool
though, that bus man. A person could probably get that started and drive it right out of
here. I didn’t say that, I din’t say that.
