Yesterday the door bell rang and when I went to the door I found a package lying on the porch. A package from my good friend Randy Bradford and inside was Volume 3 of the series “Selections from the National Prospector’s Gazette & Treasure Hunter’s News (Karl von Mueller)”.
I wrote about this series back in August of 2018 and can’t wait to start this latest addition. It’s titled “Exanimo Exposés” and at 300 pages it’s twice the size of volumes one and two. A sampling of the topics – Building Searches, The Lue, Rural Bonanzas, Leads, Anatomy of Treasure Research, Treasure Business Methods, Antique, Artifact & Relic Hunting, Beale Mystery Solved, Sham, Deception & Fraud and Treasure Signs & Symbols.
From the back cover –
“The NPG demonstrates the timeless quality of Karl von Mueller’s writing, every bit as relevant now as it was when first published. Like Karl von Mueller’s Treasure Hunter Manuals, the NPG captivated readers and now the NPG is made available to a 21st century audience”
If you’re familiar with KVM and the least bit interested in the early days of the metal detecting pastime you would do well to add these publications to your collection. They can be ordered direct from Randy by phone (913-683-9426) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. They are also available on Amazon.
Volume I, “Exanimo Looks at Books” and Volume II, “Ask Exanimo” are $20 each. Volume III, “Exanimo Exposés” is $30. Randy is hoping to release volume IV in the fall…
Gonna Be Rich!
Haven’t felt all that great of late and as a result spent a lot of time going through my rolls of wheaties, looking for all those million dollar error coins that I keep reading about. In the process I somehow wound up on the Etsy site and found out that I’m a very wealthy man!
Tell me please….what gives with this site? Certainly people aren’t that gullible…or are they?
Sound Off, One Two, Sound Off, three four….
Saw a blurb from Regton Ltd promoting a new backpack from XP. After looking at it I had flashbacks to the mid-sixties when I was employed by the US Army, saving the world. The pack looks well made but it’s a little too much unnecessary and a whole lot of expensive for this old digger. Hell I can’t stand up straight as it is….
Don’t forget to trench that tent soldier….
Looking back at how things were in the 70’s this cracks me up….I mean are we at war or what?
The XP 280 backpack & finds pouch will retail at 149.95 pounds sterling or approximately $195 US dollars, but hey if it’s that rough,tough military look you’re after the sky’s the limit right?
I want to mention something that you really need to start thinking about and that’s your exposure to the sun. We know about and talk about ticks and Lyme disease but please give a little thought to your skin as well. For many years I didn’t and now I’m paying the price. I spent the month of January having surgery, cryosurgery and cauterization to remove cancerous and precancerous carcinomas. Not a lot of fun and a whole lot of scary…
I was told that after these 17 stitches are removed this will start looking better in about six weeks…
You may be young and think you’re invincible but things like this will catch up to you. Be aware and be cautious especially if you live in areas of the country where three digit temps are the norm over the summer. Consider sunscreens and protective clothing, especially hats that offer protection for the entire head. Baseball caps might keep the sun out of your eyes but they do little for the sides of the head and the back of the neck.
Okay, that’s all. I’m done lecturing. Go make videos…
PS: If my photo looks gross to you be thankful I didn’t share the pics of my head…..
