    HAS METAL DETECTING CHANGED THE WAY YOU THINK?? SOCIALLY/INTELLECTUALLY

    Hey whats up my fellow treasure hunters

    Not sure what this thread will bring but i was wondering if other people who detect have been

    affected in a good way like me from metal detecting/treasure hunting..

    I dont know what it is but i feel i cant think on th same level as modern day society..

    Afte hunting these Colonial sites for years and seeing how they lived and how rough it was

    i have gained a certain respect for our ancestors..

    We have definately lost our patriotism and overall respect for country and fellow man/woman..

    Has metal detecting changed the way you think??

    Do you find yourself pondering

    I sure do...Just a thought..

    Lets hear yours..

    Included is a video made by a fellow Tnet member Terry Soloman which everyone should see..


    Have fun out there..

    I don't know if it's changed my thinking really, I've pretty much always had an interest in history and old things that most would never pay attention to. I know that when I see a new strip mall being built instead of wondering what's going to open up there I tend to wonder more about what was torn down to make way for it. I can't pass by a pile of dirt on the street here without stopping to look at it.

    Each and every time I pull something out of the ground that is over a hundred years old I think of the period and sometimes I feel as though I was born in the wrong century. I like to dig up old iron stuff at colonial sites just to see how things
    Were

    I started metal detecting at an early age and it taught me not to be concerned about what other people think. As long as I'm not breaking any laws and following our code of ethics people can gawk and stare all they want. This is one of the main things that have kept a lot of people from enjoying our hobby.

    I can tell you right Now. I wouldn't fight someone elses battle
    especially someone who dosn't know me personally already.
    and have too much respect for Human life to take even one away,
    & Judgement isn't in my Life job Description.

    Come to me & say "Jeff you've Known me forever,
    You know I'm a good person, so & So is threatening me.
    Help ? " I would if I can.

    Come to me say " I'v been sticking my nose in other peoples Buisness & Now it's coming back to hunt me, So you take Care of it"

    well My middle Finger comes up

    Look at the Tyranny in the government right now...

    When you try to talk to people about it they just say i dont get involved..
    There is nothing i can do about it..

    Thats why things are going to get much,much worse...


    I think Barry has special toilet paper rolls made with the constitution on them..

    it changed the way I think about people.... they are idiots....

    example:

    ME: *swinging metal detector in local park*
    STRANGER: *walking by and has to come over closer to me*
    STRANGER: "so what ya lookin for?"
    ME: "landmines"
    STRANGER: "oh? that's pretty cool. good luck, I hope you find some!"

    Well the way to gather men like that today would be the same way our forefathers did, keep them inebriated Yup, history shows that a good majority were under the influence... Besides drunken guys always love to do foolish things

    So, up and get the party started

    I'll even go one step further than Jeff.... I trust almost no one.. Many times there is an underlying personal gain to be made, and one that will not benefit me. NO, I'm not greedy by a long shot, but I'm no fool either

    Don't think MD has changed my way of thinking, but one thing for sure, it's given me quality time with my husband! We go out as a team - he detects and I dig. Works well for us. Gets us outside, exercising and being together. Sure beats watching crap TV.
