On a Hillside… Part 1 – Hard Work, Mosquitoes and a Coin Spill

The General has to inspect the area. (I made this hunt before my accident) (Health progress update in the description below). What is this? I see pieces of pottery… Probably just garbage from a construction side. Let’s see… I didn’t like the signal. One second please – the glove. I have to reset my GPS. I don’t like this signal either, but let’s see… Just a bottle screw cap. I don’t have a good feeling about this path. It’s concrete. The soil must have covered a “road”. Foil… I don’t know if it makes sense to follow this direction… Part of a can. Let’s take a short look around… More foil. I have no idea what this is. A coin? It looks strange. GPS (POI) #1 I never saw a coin like this. I think, it’s a token. That’s a good start (considering the circumstances). It’s a pellet. A flat spot. Must be deeper. No, that’s not a leave, it’s the target. Hmm… This looks like a path. This could be a buckle. A huge one. Probably a shoe buckle. It’s like putting weights on your feet. Maybe it’s an early form of fitness. A rusty soda siphon cartridge? If it came down, “people from the past” must have been up there. Maybe I should follow this lead. Another one. I don’t want to go up… …but I have to. At least a little bit. This looks flatter. If people were here, that’s probably the place. Sounds like small iron. This may also be the sound of a tiny silver coin on the Deus. I think, I should have checked it out… No! No one screamed – that’s good! But in other locations, this could be a fatal mistake. I should have investigated this (“iron like”) signal too. (in the field the sound is better and the decisions more valid) A lead bullet. Hmm, I don’t know… OK, I will go down. It’s trash. Pull tab. The find hides under this stone. Foil. Pull tab again. That’s plastic. And foil. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. A small object. Can a bullet look cute? This one does. It’s a musket ball. Probably shrapnel. A scout lost his badge? I will wear it (proudly), since I’m “scouting” this area too. Mosquitoes. A worm. A lovely button. The “stabbing” paid off this time. Time for my secret weapon – the mosquito hat. Just a piece of wire. A lead bullet. The “wig”. It’s that bad. Now I can’t see much, but at least my face can’t be bitten. I should put it on the camera too, to give you a better impression :). It’s a ring! It’s a rivet. Not today… This one is small again. A lead bullet. This root is in my way. A coin. I’m surprised to see it (with such a signal). A second coin. There is more. But let’s check the two coins first. Don’t worry – that’s the right “cleaning method” for this coin… 1924. 1924 as well. “5 Rentenpfennig”. This could be another coin spill… This root… I see another coin. It’s not over yet. The next coin. And one more. I think that’s it. A third coin from 1924. And two “Reichspfennig” coins from 1934 & 1935. It’s always a little bit disappointing, when a small coin spill is over. Although maybe I should have checked the very weak signal above. Nothing important. There is something underneath. I think, it will be iron. Mosquitoes know exactly when to attack… I prefer shallow targets. Almost there. Looks like iron wedge.

  1. As always like video put CC on and watch video … I hope you're on the mend take care and time to fully recover the injury will take a long time to heal.

  2. Are you saying that rusty piece of steel is still embedded in your leg? Say it ain't so! Please! Hope you get this resolved quickly. Don't put it off. Take care of yourself. There's only one you.

  3. Just read the update and i'm not surprised my injury took over a year to heal, a rusty object in your body is to say the least problematic to add the flu on top I can only imagine how dreadful you must feel.
    Just know that your subscribers are thinking of you.

  4. Father in heaven I pray healing for our friends leg. Show him you grace and love and healing power in Jesus name Amen

  5. it's not likely that the places that you hunt would be hunted out unless you did it, because no one else is going to put the hard work into it that you do, you earn alll the good finds that you make..thanks!

  6. Those were some hard earned targets. I was thinking you might need some small blasting charges to get that wedge out of the rocks. Great video. I hope you find some doctor that can get your leg healed up

  7. Great video as always, mosquito's are not out friend out there for sure.I like the round button. Get well and be safe.

  8. I dont know if you remember me, butni asked ypu for advice, well, i went on my first real metal detecting adventure out in the woods of a 200 year old walking trail and was able to pull out many things including a hand forged 1800s horshoe

  9. Nice to see you recovering targets again. Sounds like you have a nasty infection. Nothing to ingore go to every emergency room until you find one of them that treats you well. You need antibiotics and most likely a procedure to remove the foreign object. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

  10. You never know, it could be an iron lock box full of gold coins.  The General has a method to his ways. Please  don't wait too long.  Blood poisoning is not a thing you want to deal with. I don't know where you are in Germany, but surely there are good doctors close.  You don't want to loose the use of the leg. And I do worry about you. Take care of yourself.

  11. I read your update and am disheartened ! I agree with others here. Please, please get to the hospital !! You cannot lose your leg! Your leg loss would change immensely your life! Thanks for the hunt and tell your assistants I said hello! ❤️

  12. Go to accident and emergency immediately –
    Sepsis Symptoms are similar to yours do not delay get a taxi there now!!!!!!!

    Because it can begin in different parts of the body, this illness can have many different symptoms. The first signs may include rapid breathing and confusion. Other common warning signs include:

    Fever and chills
    Very low body temperature
    Peeing less than normal
    Rapid pulse
    Rapid breathing
    Nausea and vomiting

  13. You don't have the flu, you have an infected wound and you must get on anti biotics right away!!! Will be thinking of you here in Michigan.

  14. Yes, please listen to everyone and head to the hospital and have it properly attended to. More than likely
    The flu you believe you have contracted is just another symptom of your injury. Don't hesitate any
    longer, go to an emergency room.!!!

  15. I have mixed feelings about watching your videos. They are great but I don’t like the fact that your leg situation has worsened since your accident.
    I had a blood clot in my lower left leg 3 years ago and it was hard, swollen and warm to the touch. No fun at all! I was on medication and close watch for 4 months.In your case you could get blood poisoning. Please push your case to get immediate medical attention.
    You came across a nice coin spill. They are always fun and rewarding after a dry spell of foil , bottle caps and pull tabs. I think the “General” will claim that scouting emblem!
    Take care my friend .. praying for you!
    And yes I’m looking forward to seeing part 2.

  16. Oh, my friend. This is not good news. You need that metal out and fast. please get help. We by no means, want to lose you or you to lose your leg! Hard, red an warm can be signs of a staph infection. Praying for you, my friend

  17. Awesome video and finds mate looking forward to part 2 thanks for sharing enjoyed watching ?????⛏⛏

  18. Доброго времени суток мой Друг?!!!Отличный выход и находки?!!!Ставлю тебе Лайк ?и Желаю Удачи под катушку!!!Жду вторую серию!!!Заходи в гости на канал.

  19. To vypadá na sepsi, tedy na infekci viz. Sepse (gr. sepsis ze slova sepo = hnít) je celková reakce organismu na infekci. Stav se může rozvinout do těžké sepse a dále do septického šoku spojeného s poruchou funkce nebo se selháváním jednoho nebo více orgánů. Sepse bývá označována neodborným lidovým termínem otrava krve. Na nic nečekej a běž si do nemocnice pro antibiotika, dřív než bude pozdě. Nohy k lovu potřebuješ, a když nebudeš chodit, nebudou ani tvá super videa na které se všichni co tě sledujeme moc těšíme. Přeji brzké uzdravení a co nejméně zdravotních komplikací, sám moc dobře vím jaké to je..?

  20. Get well man. I hope you will seek out medical attention soon, so you can continue exploring. You are a huge inspiration to me and my friends, so please, get your leg fixed 🙂

  21. that was a very interesting video .i look forward to part two ,,its bad the healing on your leg is not healing well .wish there was some thing i could do to help you .could you go private and how much would it cost ,

  22. You have a lot of people very worried about you / Accident and Emergency is a good way of solving what to do. You have to wait around yes but then you get the works thrown at the problem which is what you need – instead of your current method trial and error which is madness. Let us know how you are – weekly report please / we don't need a video of your wound though.just captions and pictuures of pretty nurses in the hospital. Ian

  23. Hello 24 🙂 your health is more important than a video. We can wait for your good health but that leg , like other's say needs to be sorted. it is time to get medical help and save your energy for recovery….Keep safe..bfn.

  24. Patients with skin and soft tissue wounds commonly present to the emergency department (ED) for evaluation and treatment. Essential in the evaluation of these wounds is a careful assessment for retained foreign bodies (FB), as they are frequently missed on initial evaluation. [1, 2] Identification of a foreign body can be difficult, depending on the type and location of the wound and the timing and mechanism of injury. Soft tissue foreign bodies most commonly occur secondary to penetrating or abrasive trauma, and they can result in patient discomfort, deformity, delayed wound healing, localized and systemic infection, and further trauma during attempts at removal. Read rest need to register is free link below. https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1508207-overview

  25. I registered – History

    Assessment of a patient with a suspected foreign body begins with a careful history and physical examination. Patients who present with a wound or localized pain following trauma should be questioned regarding the specific timing and nature of the injury, the level of wound contamination, and any materials involved in the injury (eg, wood splinters, shattered glass, shredded metal). Foreign bodies detected in the ED are most commonly composed of wood, glass, or metal. [6] A careful assessment of the patient’s current symptoms should be made, including the location, quality, severity, and radiation of pain; the presence of a foreign body sensation; swelling, warmth, or redness to the wound; and any neurologic symptoms (including motor or sensory deficits). [4] Injuries involving the hands mandate asking about hand dominance, patient occupation, and previous hand injuries.

    Additional historical information regarding tetanus immunization status, allergies (particularly to local anesthetics, antibiotics, and latex), preexisting medical conditions (eg, diabetes mellitus, HIV/AIDS, chronic renal failure, connective tissue disorders), and medications (eg, steroids) that may influence rates of infection and wound healing should also be noted. [1, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11]

    In most cases, foreign bodies are the result of accidental trauma directly to the skin and soft tissue; these events are usually readily recounted by the patient. However, if the injury resulted from other mechanisms, such as syncope, seizures, potential child or elder abuse, assault, or self-inflicted wounds, further investigation is required. [12, 13] Cases that involve solid, formed metallic objects obvious on examination (eg, nails, staples, needles) may require a less detailed history than an individual who presents with localized pain and foreign body sensation but is unaware of the timing and exact mechanism of injury (eg, resulting from syncope, seizure, or assault). [14]
    Physical examination

    As with any clinical scenario in emergency medicine, complete evaluation of airway, breathing, and circulation (ABCs) is most important.

    Prior to wound examination, maximize lighting and patient positioning. Physical examination of the affected area should adequately assess for nerve, tendon, vessel, and joint involvement. Perform a vascular assessment focusing on color, capillary refill, and palpation of distal pulses. A neurologic examination should include testing of the surrounding and distally distributed nerves and assessing 2-point discrimination. Evaluate functional status, concentrating on potentially involved muscles, tendons, and joints. [1, 4] A functional assessment of movement helps to refine the potential musculoskeletal damage that may have occurred during injury and FB deposition. A complete physical examination should be performed to avoid missing any other injuries.

    Providing local anesthetic (ie, digital block) prior to wound inspection and irrigation is essential for patient comfort and in obtaining a more comprehensive examination. Local anesthetics should not be applied prior to careful evaluation and documentation of neurovascular status of the affected area. Foreign bodies such as a nail protruding through a foot may be obvious; however, foreign bodies are more often subtle, such as a small shred of metal imbedded in a fingertip during the opening of a can. If no wound is present, a close visual inspection of the area of localized pain is the first step in determining whether a foreign body is visible. Levine et al demonstrated that 78% of foreign bodies were discovered after physical examination and exploration alone, without the use of imaging. [6]

    To achieve adequate visualization, a hemostatic field of the wound should be established using either direct pressure, a properly placed tourniquet proximal to the wound, or application of newer hemostatic agents such as Gelfoam or QuickClot (Z-Medica Corp, Wallingford, Conn). [15, 16, 17] Note and document wound characteristics, including location, size, color, level of contamination, signs of inflammation (edema, erythema), and presence and type of visible foreign bodies. Obvious skin punctures should not distract the examiner from less obvious areas potentially harboring retained foreign bodies, such as areas where skin may be tenting, edematous, or otherwise normal in appearance. Carefully palpate for a foreign body or a point of maximal tenderness. Palpation of a foreign body may also yield information regarding its exact location, positioning, and orientation, as well as its flexibility and mobility. [18]
    Delayed presentation

    Foreign bodies are frequently missed during the initial evaluation, and not all patients present immediately following an injury. In one retrospective study, nearly 38% of patients had foreign bodies that were missed on initial wound inspection. [2] Another study found that only 75% of soft tissue foreign bodies were presented within 48 hours, while patients with the remaining 25% presented weeks, months, and even years later. [6] Additional reports have demonstrated subcutaneous soft tissue foreign bodies from splinters to bullet fragments found years after the traumatic event (eg, gunshot wound). [19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26] Delayed foreign bodies can present as localized cellulitis, abscess, or regional inflammatory response. A history of recurrent localized infections should prompt a search for an occult foreign body and should include a discussion of recent or remote trauma that could have resulted in a foreign body. [18, 20, 21, 27] There is more esy to register

  26. First of all, I am very sorry that you are ill and I firmly believe that it will be okay in a short time.

    The video of exploring such terrain and slope is more or less difficult, but you did it great and I look forward to the second part.

    Thanks for the videos and good luck!

  27. Great buckle find, always nice to hit a coin spill ?
    Now about that piece of metal still in your leg; I'm praying ? that you'll be very successful, this next week, in finding the best surgeon to fix the screwup that the hospital doctors caused. It already sounds as though you've got a really bad infection ?
    I'm a new sub and am perfectly happy to watch old videos and wait until you're healed and ready to go again ?

  28. I'm so sorry to hear this I'll keep sending prayers ? your way. As for me I have another month before I can walk on it. I go back to the orthopedic surgeon on October 5th and I will know more then. ✋????️???️⚾???????????♥️

  29. I am appaled by the current situation with your leg. I guess that your first hospital visit was to accident and emergency. They initiated the treatment and they should ensure that it was correct and adequate to fix your problem. That meant an operation and medication and any follow-up treatment as required. As is being said I think that your "flu" is likely to be your bodies reaction to the infection of the wound and that won't start to repair and heal until ALL yes ALL of the foreign objects are removed from your leg. Strong antibiotics are needed. Your initial operation when part of the wire was removed should have been followed up immediately before you left the operating theatre so that they were sure they had removed everything. I would have thought that you may have at least spent a day or so in hospital from the way you describe the accident. It doesn't sound like just removing a small clean object and stitching you back up. Anyone doing what you are doing should have had anti-tetanus injections and be up to date with them. That is an additional possibility with the current condition of your leg and how you describe it. The medical system there has a duty of care and should provide what is needed to get you back fit and back in action. I wish you well. I am a below-knee amputee, albeit from a motorcycle accident, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

  30. Oh je, das klingt ja nicht so gut. Das mistding muss schnell raus! Wünsche Dir weiterhin eine gute Besserung, auf dass Du bald wieder ganz normal durchs Unterholz streifen kannst…! Herzliche Grüße!! ??

  31. Don't worry,Im sure we can wait for videos. Get that out of your leg immediately. Blood poisoning could occur. Please. ?
