I have been fascinated with the past all my life. Although time travel is not possible (at least, as far as I know), we can still experience it through what I call "relics of the fourth dimension." Namely, as the old saying goes, "time marches on." We can't travel in the fourth dimension, except going forward in the present, but we can follow the trail of the fourth dimension. Along the way, people lose or discard items from their being. These relics are unintentional time capsules that give us as glimpse into their lives. Here on The Time Searchers blog, I will show some relics of the past that I have run across in our present. Sometimes when I am out on a relic hunt with the Colonial Relic Hunter, we know that we are not alone. There is more than just relics at these historical sites. Indeed, it could be said that there is a portal to the past, perhaps to another dimension, where that which once was, still is. A place where the real consorts with the shadows; the present fuses with the past, on Time Searchers: Ghost Relics.

THE ONE THAT DIDN'T GET AWAY-A CARRIER PIGEON ID TAG BAND THAT DIDN'T LEAVE THE TWILIGHT ZONE WE CALL THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE
HERE'S ANOTHER UNUSUAL ITEM THAT I FOUND AT THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE. ITS A CARRIER PIGEON ID LEG TAG. I HAVE FOUND A LOT OF THINGS OVER THE YEARS BUT NEVER ONE OF THESE. THE CODING SHOWS THAT IT WAS FROM A CARRIER PIGEON REGISTERED WITH THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF AMERICAN HOMING PIGEONS FANCIERS. THEIR WEBSITE COVERS LOST BIRDS BACK TO 2000. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS BIRD WOULD HAVE DISAPPEARED IN THE EARLY 1980'S SINCE THE TAG HAS A "81" ON IT. NO SIGN OF THE BIRD. HE PROBABLY MET HIS END IN THE FOREST WHERE THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE IS. ANOTHER MYSTERY AT THIS STRANGE, ENCHANTING PLACE OF RELICS. -THE TIME SEARCHER.

HERE'S A 1770'S BRITISH LIVERY BUTTON THAT I FOUND AT THE LOST COLONIAL VILLAGE. WE ARE HUNTING OTHER AREAS OF THE VILLAGE WITH GOOD RESULTS.
I WILL BE RUNNING SOME OTHER MAKES OF METAL DETECTORS AND MIXING UP THE COIL COMBINATIONS FOR THE AREAS WE HAVE HIT HARD ALREADY. ALL WE NEED TO DO IS COVER OURSELVES IN INSECT REPELLENT AND WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS. I WILL BE GETTING SOME VIDEO UP IN THE NEAR FUTURE.-THE TIME SEARCHER.

WE ENDED UP CHEWED UP BY INSECTS AND WORSE OF ALL HAD A RUN IN WITH SOME DEER TICKS WHICH FORTUNATELY NEITHER OF ENDED UP GETTING LIME DISEASE. BE CAREFUL IN THE WOODS AND USE THE INSECT AND TICK SPRAYS, THEY LITERALLY CAN BE A LIFE SAVER. I WILL DO MY BEST TO GET SOME GREAT RELIC VIDEOS UP. I THANK OUR SUPPORTERS FOR THE INTEREST IN OUR DVDS ON AMAZON AND WE WILL BE PRODUCING NEW DVD SHOWS. THANKS-THE TIME SEARCHER.

HERE'S A JOKE ITEM. I ALWAYS WAS A FAN OF THE SEINFELD SOUP NAZI EPISODES. HE MADE THIS GREAT SOUP SO THAT PEOPLE WOULD GROVEL TO HIM. I ALWAYS IMAGINED HOW IT WOULD BE IF THE SOUP NAZI RAN AN INVITATIONAL RELIC HUNT OR OWNED A HISTORICAL PROPERTY AND I WANTED PERMISSION TO RELIC HUNT THERE. IN RELIC HUNTING AS WELL AS LIFE'S OTHER PURSUITS, YOU WILL RUN INTO PEOPLE LIKE THE SOUP NAZI. DON'T LET THEM RAIN ON YOUR PARADE. FOLLOW YOUR DREAM AND NEVER QUIT. SOMEHOW IT SHOULD ALL WORK OUT.-THE TIME SEARCHER.

HERE WE ARE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE JULY 4 HOLIDAY WEEKEND I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE TIME GOES (AND I'M THE TIME SEARCHER). ANYWAY, I WONDERED WHAT TO POST FOR THIS WEEKEND AND THOUGHT WHY NOT SHOW AN IMAGE FROM OUR PATRIOTIC PAST.. SO, HERE WE HAVE ANOTHER PHOTO FROM THE TIME SEARCHERS ARCHIVE. IT SHOWS AN EVENT CIRCA 1910. IT LOOKS LIKE THE OFFICIAL IN THE FRONT ROW IS A POLICEMAN. I BELIEVE THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN IN CLEVELAND, OHIO SINCE THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S STUDIO WAS LOCATED THERE. IT COULD BE A PHOTO OF PEOPLE BEING SWORN IN AS U.S. CITIZENS. I AM NOT SURE. BUT, THE EVENT DOES HAVE A PATRIOTIC THEME TO IT. IT IS NICE TO SEE EVERY ONE WELL DRESSED. PEOPLE SEEMED TO CARE MORE ABOUT THEIR APPEARANCES THEN.
I WILL BE GETTING MORE RELIC HUNTING VIDEO UP SOON. MAYBE SOME THIS WEEKEND. WE WILL BE DOING SOME RELIC RECON ON A 40+ ACRE TRACT OF LAND IN THE HOPE OF FINDING SOME LOST COLONIAL FOUNDATIONS. HOPEFULLY THERE WILL BE SOME FOOTAGE FROM THAT. HAVE A HAPPY, SAFE JULY 4 AND REMEMBER OUR BRAVE COLONIAL FOREFATHERS WHO RISKED IT ALL (INCLUDING THE HANGMAN'S NOOSE) TO ESTABLISH THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH. -THE TIME SEARCHER.
