    Almost every time I see a gold ring found at the beach it's FL. I guess you have to go where the tourists are

    Re: what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    Nada. I'm a 10 minute walk from the beach. I go generally every morning for at least an hour on work days, unless I have to go in early. On my days off I either walk or I'll drive about 10 minutes and start from the opposit/furthest end of the hotels.
    My lease is up next year and my wife has been making noise about finding another place because she'd like a pool. In that case I'll probably have to get up 30 minutes earlier in order to drive to the beach and get an hour hunt in.

    7 beaches within 5-20 mins drive.3 more within 30 mins,all very popular during the summer here. My daily finds target is around the equivelent of $25...which i usually always hit, but haven't really been getting out much this year.
    Parking is free for the most part,as are my yearly permits.

    Re: what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    Closest beach to me is 1 1/2 hrs away, Miami is 2 1/2 hrs... Then parking... I drive a full size Titan, get about 18 miles/gal highway..
    Bottom line, if I go 2 or 3 times and dont find gold, the hole gets pretty big... But then I usually find something that at least puts me back into the black..
    But man oh man, TH has sure gone from "just a few" to "jeez, does everyone here own a detector?"...
    You never think you need an extra machine, until the one you have breaks down...

    Re: what does it cost ya to get 2 the beach ?

    20 minutes to the beach, it cost about 3 bucks for parking, and 2 bucks for coffee, so I say about 6 7 dollars a shot, minus 2 or 3 dollars which I usually find, so we are sitting at 4 to 5 dollars a shot. That sure beats 70 dollars that gulf will set you back

    I feel guilty living so close to the beach and not really liking beach hunting. Never in the water and maybe a half dozen times a year in the dry sand. And this because I feel I have to go at least once in a while. Give me a park or school any day over a beach.

    not liking the beach....i guess u would rather clad hunt

    some school or park. ? whAAAAAA? i guess everyone has

    a preference and right to express it

    BUT as far as valuable finds the BEACH WINS HANDS

    DOWN. havent u read how the water and sun oil combine

    to make the rings slip off. not to mention the

    beauty of the beach well. i know its very expensive

    to live on key west so i must assume u are already well

    fixed. maybe u value quiet more.THAN GOLD JEWELRY. and at the right times

    many tot lots and parks can be urs alone. if u would like to

    trade places for about a decade let me know. im in
