Never Forget…

Today of course is 9/11 and I decided to share the following from 2014.

Time to Ponder…

I think a lot about where I currently am with this pastime and whether I will ever get back in the field.

Always something…

It seems like each day, each week brings something to ponder and something to worry about. Things like what am I going to do now that I’m not able to detect, OR what am I going to do if I’m not able to walk? Continue reading

Time to Cool it!

Not much happening here in my neck of the woods and I’m still having trouble getting around. If you can don’t get old. It’s no fun at all…

Since we’re into the 100 degree days here in Texas here’s a throwback from 2014 that I hope you will take to heart…. Continue reading

Q & A with Adam Kearley

First heard about Adam Kearley when John Howland gave him a shoutout on his Detecting & Collecting blog. After watching a few of his videos I asked if he’d be kind enough to do a Q&A. He replied in the affirmative and here we are. Thank you Adam, appreciate it! Continue reading
