Interesting post on a FB detecting page..”what do people in the hobby of metal detecting prefer to be called”?
A few responses…. M.D.r’s. Detectorists, Swingers, Diggers, Treasure Hunters, Prospectors, Dirt Fishermen, Archemetalogist, History Hunters, Dirt Diggers, Relic Hunters, Active Dreamers, Sunburned Seekers and Discoverers.
This got me thinking… Maybe we should come up with a few labels to irritate the archaeologists (or make them happy). Names like Happy Hoikers or Backhoe Bums? Or how about Big Hole Bubbas, Tear ‘Em Up Tekkies, Root ‘Em Out Rowdies or Show ‘Em Up Sams? Then there’s Plundering Pluckers, Lookey Here’s, Hoard Whores, Reformed Arkies and my very favorite, Bad Ass Barfordites? What da ya think?
For the record I am a Coinshooter, albeit a cranky one, but I’m curious…what do you want to be called?
