Planning to take a trip back to the old homeplace this weekend and will be taking a detector with me. Wondering if we have any TQers in extreme southern Illinois that would like to get together for a hunt on Saturday or Sunday. Have several old homesites no one to my knowledge has ever detected on. PM me if interested.

Cairo is about 2 hours north of me and I totally hate those two bridges where the 2 rivers meet. I hate all bridges but those are the worst I've ever been on.

When I went through there on my way to Temperance MI I think I crossed about 5 bridges. They had the KY bridge closed down at the time and I cross the Mississippi at night. That was the worst experience I had ever has. The bridge was under construction and it was only a narrow (well narrow to me ) 2 lane bridge. I think the steering wheel of the truck we rented still has my hand prints in the cover.

Was this before the I-57 bridge? That's been there a long time. Try the rt. 45 bridge at Paducah. You can actually see throught the decking.

This was 3 years ago. A barge had hit/bumped the bridge going across the Ohio into KY and they closed it for repairs. There was a long detour and a lot of complaints. The bridge I went over was going across the Mississippi and if I looked down I probably could see through the decking.
