Decided to keep on with the blog & website for the time being and see how things go in the days ahead. I will share whatever is on my mind, detecting related or not and you can decide whether it’s interesting, boring, depressing or utter bullshit. Whatever your take I understand….
The past few days I’ve been doing a lot of reading, too much eating and trying hard to keep warm. This current cold spell is affecting a lot of folks, and I especially feel for my friends in the Northeast. As much as I dislike where I am living now I do not miss digging snow or dealing with frostbite. Hang in there my Yankee friends!
On another note it seems the new year has barely begun and we are bombarded with even more detecting forums, blogs, FB pages, broadcasts and vanity movies. I’m peeing my pants wondering what new “dig this” or “dig that” reality show is forthcoming on the telly…
Okay, since I’ve probably pissed off a few of you I will now get off my soapbox and wish you all a great 2014.
Get your detector, your pinpointer, your headphones, your pouch, your shovel, your digger, your kneepads, your camo, your camera, your GPS, your smart phone, your script and your ass out in the field. Good hunting….

HOWLAND’S TAKE ON 2014
Unlike me John Howland didn’t take a step back to think things over. It’s always forward and upward, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead. Likewise he won’t admit it but he too is a curmudgeon and a soused one at that. Having said that I am happy to have him aboard….
Please take a minute or two to read his take on 2013 by clicking on the Malamute Saloon link above and scrolling down to today’s date! As usual he takes no prisoners!
THE “STEP UP AND CLEAN UP” EFFORT
Let me remind you again about this challenge. Your club could win a Coinmaster detector, compliments of White’s Electronics. All you have to do is help out your local community, clean up the environment and promote your club in the process. How? Simply by adopting a park or a stretch of highway and/or shoreline to clean up on a regular basis.
The guidelines….Send a newspaper clipping or email a link to a television blurb about your club’s “Step Up and Clean Up” program. It must tell about or show your club actually at work, cleaning up your adopted area, and it must be dated after January 1, 2014. Send it to….
“Step Up and Clean Up”, White’s Electronics, Inc., 1011 Pleasant Valley Road, Sweet Home, Oregon 97386.
