    because it would be very difficult to get funded with just a high school diploma...

    Ok. And some people's definition of "legitimate treasure", is any legend they read in a ghost story book , or TH'ing magazine from the 1970s. They ESPECIALLY become legitimate, if you throw in a faded newspaper clipping and a drawing of a miner posed next to his burro. And even MORE legit the moment you add: a skeleton, cryptograms, a cave, a conspiracy, etc... Eh ?

    Well the best I can figure the only ones making a living from treasure hunting is those that had enough since to just sell the equipment that we all use but most all of us were not smart enough to figure that out

    If you got into this hobby thinking you were going to get rich or make a living at it welcome to reality thats why it is called a hobby.

    hit or miss, naw semi pro, yeah, earn enough no, work to play. schooling yes, life teaches you, as far as the hobby, knowing what and where you are looking helps with the things you find. the schooling comes from knowing age appearance, and use of an item found= History era people were there, just have fun its nature and you and the coil, smile and sweep.
