Okay here we go…again. Listen up please, this gets old.
Stout Standards is a metal detecting blog as well as a personal blog, and yes it is indeed different from most other metal detecting blogs/websites. You won’t find the ole “I dug down five inches and the silver blinded me” bullshit, nor will you find a lot of technical talk about the newer detectors. As for sharing stories of yesteryear, they’re here somewhere, and if not they’re nested in my crudely put together website which goes back to 2010…so help yourself.
My old (and I mean old) friend John Howland contributes from the UK via the Malamute Saloon, and he’s one helluva writer. When and what he posts is entirely dependent on his ability to walk without staggering and think coherently, which is not very often.
John and I might also comment about those who post lies and propaganda that are detrimental to our pastime. It’s a battle we’ve fought for years, it’s where we come from and how we met over thirty years ago. If you feel lost when we mention wannabe archaeologists like Warsaw Wally or Heritage Harry I understand and I am sorry. The battles go back a few years….
So understand the nature of this blog, the mumbo jumbo we post here, and accept it for what it is….two old guys talking about anything and everything and nothing in particular. If it’s not your cup of tea that’s okay. I understand. Good hunting, happy digging, up yours, whatever, and thanks for stopping by.
And please, the above was done tongue in cheek….
