Just saw this item on Mike Post’s Facebook site, and thought I would pass it along. “Dig Fellas” debuts September 4th on the Travel Channel, and features Bill Ladd and Howard Hewitt, two tekkies who have been sharing their videos on YouTube for some time. If you’ve not had the occasion to watch any here’s one to get you started. There’s 42 more out there.
I do think detecting shows on television have been improving and will continue to do so with each new show or series. Remember doing tekkie shows is a learning curve for the producers too, and frankly after Spike’s “American Diggers” show, the only place to go is up. Good luck “Dig Fellas”….I will be watching September 4th.
GREAT THINGS GOING ON IN BLACK MOUNTAIN
Mike Post’s Woodland Detector Shop & Museum in Black Mountain, North Carolina, has been growing by leaps and bounds, and just this past week Mike installed a gold sluice. Why? To get families to turn off the TV, enjoy the outdoors and in the process promote metal detecting, prospecting and relic hunting. Mike also offers treasure hunting programs for kids on Saturdays, along with gold and gem hunting classes.
Woodland Detectors is, without a doubt, one of the nicest shops I’ve seen, and it’s loaded with history. If you live close by or just passing through be sure to stop in and say hello. You can also find out more on Mike’s Facebook page.
