FAQ: How do I use a metal detector to find property pins/markers?
A metal detector can be an effective means of finding property markers and is usually MUCH cheaper than hiring a professional location company to come out and find the pins.
Property markers are commonly used in most municipalities to mark the legal boundaries of a platted property. They are metal pins that will typically be found at every corner of your property and any point on your property where the line changes direction (i.e. if you have sharp angle turn on your property line, there will likely be a marker placed where the new line direction starts). The markers will usually have a colored plastic cap with a number on it and are typically only 6-10 inches deep. Although this can vary depending on time and the amount of topsoil that was placed on the property after the pin was placed....

3 of The Best Activities to Social Distance Outside
At at time where sheltering in place is a common occurrence, people are clamoring for a way to social distance and not go crazy. Many people will choose to stay at home and stay glued to the screen. We have deprived a list of outdoor activities that are a great way to get outside, get some exercise, and fresh air all at the same time.
Where we are located, in Kansas City, most of the metro has received a "shelter in place" order. Many of the local businesses are shut down or limiting on how they do business. There have been mass layoffs and most industries have employees working on reduced schedules or working from home. Health clubs are shuttered, group sports are discouraged, and people are looking real hard to find a way to remain active. Local governments, however, have encouraged people to get outside and do physical activity while maintaining a responsible social distance from one another. They suggest taking a walk with your dog, jogging, walking, etc. These are all great ways to pass the time while staying healthy.
Lack of physical activity aside, there are a great deal of people that are suddenly left without a paycheck or seeing significantly reduced income as a result of the lock-downs. Very few employers are hiring and you cannot even pick up a shift waiting tables to make ends meet. This combined with the idea that you have to be isolated to your house to wait this out and the boredom that comes with it is enough to drive almost anyone bonkers.
