What’s it Worth?

We had an unusually warm day yesterday and I decided to take the car to the car wash. Once I got there I realized I didn’t have any small bills and inserted a ten dollar bill into the changer, receiving a lot more quarters than I needed. In fact after putting them in my pocket I tilted to the left. Continue reading

To whose who have asked I’m still around…just been a little busy with life – you know that other world that you discover when you’re not detecting…

Have to tell you though I took a tour Saturday of AT&T stadium, a.k.a. “Jerry World” and being the Cowboy hater I am I put a hex on them. Yup, right there on the fifty yard line in the middle of that damn star and you know what? They lost last night!! So there, put that in your pipe and smoke it Jerry! Ain’t no Super Bowl in the stars this year… Continue reading

Detector Prospector is the handiwork of Steve Herschbach and he has graciously agreed to tackle the all too familiar SS list of questions.

Q & A with Dan Hughes…

Dan Hughes

Not sure how many of you remember Dan Hughes but his radio podcasts provided me and many other detectorists great listening over the years. Dan stopped doing them about three years ago but fortunately for us he left them out there in cyberspace. Continue reading

Just Scattershooting Again…

Pound the Ground – Adirondacks

After talking with a few tekkies who were there it appears the “Pound the Ground” event was a success. One mentioned there were things that could have been better thought out/planned but over all everyone thought they got their money’s worth.

It could be an event where the manufacturers debut their new products and the place where you get to meet the YouTube personalities/entertainers.  Continue reading
