Just One of those Days…

Another rainy day and nothing much going on here in my little corner of the world. Haven’t been out detecting of late, lost two very dear friends last week and the Pug Bug is no longer parked in front of the house. Other than that everything is hunky dory…. Continue reading

Believe It or Not, Howland Talks About Sensitivity…

Heavy rain, dreary day here in Texas but Digger Dog bravely charged out the back door, held two very quick ‘bidness’ meetings, had his morning chow and is now back in bed. What a guy!  Anyway today is perfect for an update from across the pond.  This from the Malamute Saloon and John Howland.

This & That and a Reminder…

Was looking through a few of the older entries in my very badly constructed website and came across the Texas Antiquities Act…worth sharing again in case you tax paying Texas tekkies think it’s a level playing field. Continue reading

From the Treasure Hunter’s Express…

In the past I’ve talked about Paul Tainter, his Treasure Expo’s and his Treasure Hunter’s Express. It’s a quarterly publication that is always filled with information that’s useful and often intriguing. The following is just a small sampling of the types of articles featured in the Express, information that is not readily available to modern treasure hunters but is still very much applicable and timeless information.

I’ll Show You Mine if You…

I find it rather amusing that a large majority of detectorists like to wear camouflage yet will pivot on a dime and shout “hey everybody look at what I found”.  Yup, happens all the time and sooner or later it’s going to bite a few of them on the ass. Continue reading

Hoiking With Chicago Ron…

firehouseWas wracking my brain last week trying to think of what I might share here that would be useful, interesting and informative but the answer kept coming up zero. I was ready to give up but then I turned on the tele, saw a guy driving a big ole fire truck,  flashing a set of pearly whites and I had an epiphany (don’t bother looking it up – just substitute brainfart). The end result?  A guest post by Ron Guinazzo, a.k.a Chicago Ron! Continue reading

Heard of “Throwback Thursday”? Well this is “Who Cares Tuesday”…

Nothing all that exciting to share but rain is in the forecast and when that happens I write and you lose.  Sunday evening we dodged a bullet and lucked out with only straight-line winds of 60-70 mph. A few folks southwest of here didn’t fare so well. The angst we feel when severe weather is forecast is over-the-top and will be from now on.  The joy of living in tornado alley…. Continue reading

Detectors….My Take!

I get emails via the “contact me” link almost every week asking my advice on detectors. Which one to buy, which one do I use and which one is the best. I try to reply as best I can but it’s really difficult now given my limited in the field excursions.  Likewise as I’ve gotten older (okay senile) my views and my preferences have changed dramatically.

2017 – What’s Coming…

HERE’S THE SCOOP!

As we start the new year I wonder just what lies in wait for we tekkies. Will 2017 be a year where we see new innovation, new products or just more of the same ole, same ole, as in paisley pinpointers, unnecessary accessories, over-hyped searchcoils and cameras guaranteed to land you a TV series?
