Finding the Very Best Detector…

Which detector is the best? Which brand or model will outdo all the others on the market? Is it the most expensive one? The one with more bells an whistles? Or is there a lesser expensive one that can perform equally as well? More importantly IS THERE such an animal, and if so, who is it that determines that? Continue reading

Enough Already…

FROM ONE EXTREME TO THE OTHER

Last year we were facing drought conditions here in Texas, but thanks to El Nino 2015 is looking much different. So far this year, from January through April, we’ve received 12.74 inches of rain, compared to 3.83 for the same period last year. Our lakes and reservoirs are finally starting to fill, and the 10 day forecast calls for rain and more rain. It figures I finally got permission to hunt a large and potentially productive site and now it’s water-logged.  Here’s hoping that all this moisture will increase my odds when I finally do get there…..

The Silver Bullet Syndrome…

WHAT THE ANALYTICS TELL ME

I’ve noticed that I get the most visitors to my blog whenever I talk metal detectors or post photos/videos of finds. On the flip side, if I talk about archaeologists, organizing the pastime, or simply piss and moan (which is a forte of mine), the numbers go down.  Continue reading

Too Old For All This…

The fact that we tekkies are able to stay in touch online is really pretty cool, but sometimes it results in heavy drama, and knock ‘em dead arguments. Look around and you will pretty much find them on any metal detecting forum, website or FB page. Continue reading

The Treasure Right Under Your Nose…

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and if you are fortunate enough to still have your Mom around, promise yourself that you will spend more time with her, not just tomorrow, but whenever possible.  Don’t wait until it’s too late….

My Mom passed away four years ago, and there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of her…..

Love you Mom.....

Love you Mom…..

Digging in New England…

FROM AN ACORN…

Last Sunday, tekkies Dave Wise and Terry Charest hosted a somewhat impromptu, but very successful hunt near West Kingstown, Rhode Island.  What started out as just an idea for a get-together on the New England Cellar Dweller Facebook page, wound up attracting over 130 detectorists. They labeled it “Digging in New England” (or D.I.N.E. if you will). Continue reading

THANKS B.O.N.E.

Many thanks to George Streeter and the Best of Northeast gang for selecting “In Search of Treasure” as the best book of 2015 (published in 2013). George, owner of Streeter’s Treasure Hunting Supply, has been putting on the Best of Northeast now for 22 years, and while I have never attended, all my tekkie friends tell me it’s one the best treasure events going.

Drum Roll Please…

Here in North Texas we just experienced a wondrous and strange event…..RAIN, and lots of it.  No one could have predicted it, and believe it or not, a great many of our lakes are now full or near full.  Add in three consecutive sunny days with temps near 80, and I just had to drag my sorry ass out for a little detecting (and slow methodical torture)….
