Went to two parks this morning out of the area I normally search, the first one not to good .07cents this was just in the woodchips. The second location did better, but nothing was found in the woodchips. There was a town crew working in the playground leveling the chips, before starting I asked if he wouldn't mind if I searched the area, he said was okay with him. Went into other areas in the park did okay. One worker that was mowing/trimming sounded like he was shouting over at me, than he got into his cart and drove to the shelter behind me, he stood and watched for awhile than proceeded with trimming.
