    46. been detecting since I was 10 when my uncle got me started. First detector was a White's 2db I thought was like magic. Never grew out of my fascination with detecting. Been hooked non stop ever since.

    It's not what you find that defines you, it's your attitude in doing what you love that show people who you really are.

    64, Started around 1990 I think. And the computer generation? Ya, It's to hard, they don't find all the "good stuff" the first day, and they actually have to get down to dig! It's not fair!
