All This? Really?
Saw an ad for the Fisher F-Pulse pinpointer and was amazed and amused by the bullet listed features…
*Pulse induction *Beep, Vibrate (or both) *Lost Mode Alarm *Single Button Operation *3 Sensitivity Levels *Proportional Response *Retune *Adjustable LED Light *Auto Shutdown.
All this and it’s a PINPOINTER for crissakes. I’m guessing it won’t be long before these things come with lengthy user manuals.
How did we ever find anything in the 70’s and 80’s?
For the Record
When I decided to do a blog back in 2010 (old website) I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it or if I could even do it. I liked writing and thought it might be a great way for me to not only share my experiences but also a reason to round-up all my hobby related photos and put them in one place. After eight years I’ve accomplished the first and still working on the second. I’m also slowing down.
Today putting my thoughts/views/opinions out there usually gets me in someone’s dog house, but as they say “sh*t happens and I can deal with that. It’s also the result of my not detecting much anymore, not sharing videos and not promoting myself (nobody wanted “Dallas Dick” T-shirts and my cleavage didn’t titillate).
I know my posts are less frequent and my shtick is getting old but I hope you will continue to check in here if for no other reason than to see what kind of trouble I’ve gotten myself in or to keep up with the state of the pastime. I’m one of the few who actually care whether or not there’s metal detecting ten years from now.
