    Have Not Been Out For 6 Years Do Due Becoming Disabled. Finally Able To Walk A Little

    I had been detecting for over 25 years with many good finds and good times. Went to many organized hunts, meetings and belonged to 2 clubs. Caught an autoimmune as well as a neck/head injury which has made me make some huge changes. Was a fishing guide for 22 years, gave that up, sold the boat, sold the truck, played in a band etc etc. Finally after 6 years the Drs all keep telling me "you need to get out and move around if only for a little while". I tried with my DFX 300 which was just bought prior to this, but it was to heavy to swing for me. Tried my regular DFX, the CZ20 with the belt and nope, nothing worked (they are both for sale now). My wife talked to a friend of mine who I used to hunt with and he recommended the Minelab 800. Well, it is much lighter for me and I was able to get out for 1 hour the other day. She also bought me a Lesche digger that was the exact height as my walking sticks to which I use that as my walking stick now. Worked out well. Hopefully little by little I can add some time but for now even a little is great for me. Here is a pic after my first time out in 6 years with the new 800. Take care everyone. There is always someone else worse off somewhere and never give up!Click image for larger version.

    Welcome to T-Net.

    Congrats on the outing.
    Ease into it , but keep swingin!

    I use a wheelchair to detect. And can transfer to the ground if desired to make a recovery.
    Still fun!

    Great to hear that you can get out in the field again. Any other T Netters near you that you could detect with?

    Congratulations on getting to the point that you can get out and getting a detector that is light enough for you to handle! Welcome back to the hobby! Just take it easy and don't wear yourself out too fast. Look forward to reading about your future finds and progress.
