    Relic-ing. Looking for relics. Using a metal detector to find relics. Now say it with a strong southern accent, over the phone.:rofl:

    Now that's funny. I too live in Civil War country (Harpers Ferry WV area). I've never gone relic-ing on my land but maybe I should. Might find something and get a monument next to my driveway.

    While you may or may not give permission to an individual to metal detect on your property,

    Years ago I was taking a phone order from a gentleman,

    Me, "State"?

    Him, "West Virginia."

    Me, "Thank you, now, city?"

    Him, "Herkin."

    Me, "Excuse me?"

    Him, "HERKIN!"

    Me, "Sir, could you spell that please?"

    Him, "H U R R I C A N E."

    Me, "Thank you sir."

    I live in the same area as you and have some friends who 'dig', as they put it. One friend has literally buckets of dropped bullets and oodles of buttons, buckles, bridles and assorted other relics. The stuff is everywhere. I went with him once and dug a few bullets myself just outside Harpers Ferry.
