ARE WE ARE SLOWLY BEING RUN OUT OF TOWN?

Has anyone noticed the trend toward detecting rural areas? Fields, wooded areas, farms, etc.?  Seems that detecting town or city areas is becoming harder and harder to do. Or, am I imagining it? Continue reading

When I woke up this morning my mind said yes, but the body said no, so I flipped a coin and it came out “get off your ass and do something”…. Continue reading

Shooting Ourselves In the Foot!

WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING…

…to our pastime?  Our hobby?  Seems every day I find or read something that just is so out of touch with what it is we do. Besides all the new technology and increased competition, we seem to still find a way to tarnish our image.  Here’s a sample of what I am talking about…. Continue reading

John Winter

John Winter

Well now I know John Winter is an okay Brit, and his latest blog post proves it.  Yup, he finally put it out there for all to see.  He admitted he’s a grumpy old git (think git means the same thing as “fart”).

Not sure if it’s our age (we are both 74), our love of wine, our good looks, or all three, but we have as so much in common it’s scary. Read the following and tell me what you think? Continue reading

Mid-Week Meandering…

BIG BAD BILL

It was a simpler time and life was good. Continue reading

METAL DETECTING, THE HOBBY

Cover

Had hoped to be able ro reprint “Metal Detecting, the Hobby” but it looks like that won’t happen. To get costs down I would have to order in large quantities, and then of course discount considerably to the larger companies and distributors. Bottom line, it’s just not financially possible right now.  If something should happen down the road, and I change my mind, I will let you all know. Continue reading

You Know What I Hate?

AS IF I NEEDED TO BE REMINDED

Was visiting a Facebook page and found a poster fawning over his recently found Walking Liberty Half Dollar.  According to him it was his favorite coin, his best find, his benchmark for success up to this point. Continue reading
