There is mixed terrain, so it might be good to wear hiking boots. It will be an all day hunt, so be prepared. Cell phone service is spotty to non-existent in the area.

The owner is not interested in keeping any finds, but very much wants to just see any older objects found so as to know what was on his land. So we will do a modified Genevieve Method. Keep all modern items, but show him any old.
