Chris is near hurricane strength is supposed to turn into a hurricane and head north.  It will also move east before long.

I have a lot of future posts already planned.  I'll be showing a variety of cobs from one hunt.  Before August is over I expect to post some good metal detector tests and reviews that I'll conduct myself.

Happy hunting,
