That's the same with us Ian. We go south about 7oo miles but that puts us in the serious beach hunter region. I have to use some old tricks to even find a signal. The new drops are usually pretty well cleaned out by the time we get there. It is a little more interesting up where I live because we have old sites like lumber camps and coal mine towns that still give up some nice finds. Not always a lot of them but enough to keep you looking. Biggest drawback now is my age. I don't stoop as well as I used to :'(
I spread my legs very wide and bend from the waist. 😉 😉The local distillery have taken a lot of good hunting land away from us.Where the original owner's kids would have played as children,and also an old flax mill and drying fields. >:( >:( We no longer have access to these places as security is high all round the distillery. 🙁 🙁What's even worse is their constantly expanding.
