    Metal Detecting

    I admit - I'm ADDICTED to Metal Detecting...!

    Folks, I must admit, that I'm addicted to Metal Detecting...!
    I've searched for cures..., but the only remedy seems to be MORE metal detecting...!
    (There isn't a MD Annonimus version of the AA in town, either...!)
    After I retired, I became in love with the hobby.
    And, it was the true and natural transition from a field-going govt. archaeologist, to one who was then paid to do same in the private sector, only this time..., "Coil For Hire", eh?
    Getting paid to have fun...?! Yep!
    Anyway, all the while involving detecting, whatever I did.
    Passport In Time, a USFS program of volunteers, working on wagon trails/roads and Chineese mining camps. Didn't get to keep my finds, but have some pics.... I love the research that goes into finding out how old and what and why of everything!
    Oh yeah, there are many examples, only they would better paint a picture of my involvement, my addiction to the hobby...!
    There is no cure!
    Stick With It - It's not *IF* you'll find the good stuff , but WHEN!

    It's the one addiction that will build you up instead of tear you down. Metal detecting got me through the darkest days of my life. if life becomes overwhelming , get to swinging....

    I rank the metal detecting addiction right up there with my other addiction (chocolate) ! Just so I'm not being partial to one or the other, I usually eat a Snickers bar while I'm detecting ! Doesn't get any better than that.
