    You Know You're Truly Addicted to Treasure Hunting when...

    This is a shameless bump of my own post from March 2006, but its been 2 years since I posted it and I have some more to add...ENJOY!!

    1. You glance in the McDonald's donation boxes at the counter, hoping maybe to spot a Wheatie.
    2. You look at EVERY coin you receive and jiggle your pocket at the end of the day, listening for the sounds of silver, just in case you had missed in during the day.
    3. Not only are you willing, but look forward to battling snow, penetrating sun, poison ivy, and an occasional dog.
    4. You refer to old coins as Wheaties, Barbies, Mercs, and Buffs.
    5. You spot a crooked tree and swear it points to gold.
    6. Finding several dollars in clad is actually unfulfilling.
    7. Your weekend trip to the beach requires a sand scoop.

    [glow=red,2,300][b]8. You own 15 different digging tools, but only use 1.
    9. You "accidently" jam the Coinstar machine and ask the teller if you can have the contents of the trash tray. TRY IT, IT WORKS!!!
    10. You have almost wrecked on numerous occasions because you spotted a foundation or old house.
    11. Digging in your church clothes is necessary at times.
    12. You meet the in-laws for the first time and immediately direct the conversation to questions about the history of their property...(haha, my girlfriend was pissed!!)
    13. You stop on the way home at a dumpster outside of a house to check the contents.


    FEEL FREE TO ADD MORE!!!!


    I have actually done every one of these

    You start collecting metal detectors like old men collect pocket knives.

    .....you volunteer to go to the store to buy your wife's "female" items so you can spend a half hour detecting a park that hasn't given up any coin older than 1987 for two years.

    You plan your vacations around detecting
    You wear a shirt that says "Old Detectorists never die, they just smell that way!" (Copyright to me BTW)

    Re: You Know You're Truly Addicted to Treasure Hunting when...

    ...you almost get into accidents rubber necking potential hunting sites.

    ...you gladly wake up far earlier than normal and lose sleep you would have killed for before you took up the hobby.

    ...you proudly display junk a sane person wouldn't even consider looking at.

    ...you spend an inordinate amount of time on this forum.

    ...you stare at the ground even when not detecting.

    ...you pick up coins on the ground that you never would have paid attention to before.

    ...you have begun looking at people's jewelry and hoping that they will drop it.

    ...you begin to question acquaintances about where they live and about the history of their property.

    ...you closely monitor the jewelry you're wearing so you don't lose it.

    ...you come up with a crazy name, like TBGO.

    HH!

    Actually, you might be surprised how often I find wheat cents in stores and gas stations where there is a dish of pennies. I always dig through them. Sometimes the the clerk gives me a funny look like I'm going to take all of them.

    You have been intensely detecting this beach for 4 hours before discovering it is a NUDE BEACH.
    King Soopers won't let you use their CoinStar machine anymore because you keep jamming it up with dirty coins.
    Assaulted your neighbor because he insulted your main detector.
    Have the UPS deliver your new detector next door so your wife will not find out you have bought another detector.
    Detected the funeral home's lawn during your wife's funeral.
    Have it in your will that your detector will be buried with you.
    Your neighbors are starting to suspect the truth that you have been secretly detecting their yards while they are at work.
    You have 10 "Back Up" detectors.
    You have autographed photos of Treasurenet moderators on your desk at your office.

    Look in the stool to see if it was a gold brick this time. Burdie

    You will clean up your detector and finds...but could give a damn less if the garage ever gets cleaned.

    ...finding 5 wheaties is better than finding 5 clad quarters...although they are only worth maybe 20 cents total.

    ...the tattoo of your detector doesn't fit on your back, and has to be continued on the front. And updated regularly. HH

    You're watching a Harry Potter movie and silently think to yourself "If I was a wizard I could probably use my wand to detect for dropped gold gallions under the Quidditch bleachers after the game if Dumbledore gives me permission".
