    hello all,newbie here

    hello,been reading this board for awhile now,just bought a new ace 250 and tried it out for the first time at an elementary school in west jordan utah,found 3 pennies,not bad for 30 minutes work.just wanted to introduce myself.i am originally from sarasota florida but i now drive an 18 wheeler cross country so i think this hobby will be perfect for me.dont get much excercise sitting in a truck all day.i am technically homeless as i live full time in my truck,but i still have a po box in sarasota and i get there every six weeks or so,so thats still home i guess.though not many homeless people make 60k a year,lol.i have a brother that is on these forums(whats up bill,aka metalfury).had an old whites i bought at a pawn shop a few years back but never did much with it,now i can say i am addicted to this hobby and will be stopping at locations all over the country,anyhow.just wanted to say hi all and maybe i will run into some of you out and about(not literally,big truck would hurt).take care,and happy hunting.

    Homeless?

    Remember what the indians say: if you own more than you can carry at dead run, you own too much.

    Best of luck with the Ace 250, I'm probably getting one myself real soon.

    Re: hello all,newbie here

    thank you all for the welcome,i enjoy reading this site very much,and in response to shermanville,i own my own rig.plan on doing this for five more years then buying an RV and being semi retired,i am only 35 at the moment but i am very tight with my money and almost debt free,i live full time in my truck an am able to save most of my money so if all goes well i will stop driving,live in the RV with my dog and wife,and work part time and treasure hunt full time.she lives with me now in the truck and we get along very well so things should work out well with our plan.

    Dang, no mortgage ? What do you spend all that income on then ? That profession should lead to a lot of neat stuff over your travels.

    Hi Bro. welcome to the board. Hope you find all kinds of good stuff, I've been detecting for about a year now and I am hooked! Sooner or later we'll have to get together for a hunt, maybe one of these times when I'm in Fla. and you're back there for a weekend or something...

    Re: hello all,newbie here

    Welcome Treasuretrucker,
    So if I'm reading your post correctly your wife, your dog and yourself live in the truck....You are a better man then me. Lol.

    Since you are posting here I would assume you have an internet connection in the truck. You should do a little online research of the places you are driving through. May turn up some sites other then parks and schools. Or if you have the time stop by the local libraries for the local history books.

    Re: hello all,newbie here

    Treasuretrucker,

    Get an online map program with GPS, every time you pass a park, playground or anything that looks promising, even if you can't stop, flag it. I use the program Delorme and I do this, I now have a map of Central Florida that is covered with flags of city parks, county parks, freshwater beaches, and other promising areas. When i get off work I check the map for the closest area to detect on the way home. You can do the same thing on a larger scale.

    Save the map file in different locations in case the hard drive crashes. I save mine to a jump drive and to my Yahoo Briefcase.

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams
