    Personally, I don't care what a person with pink hair, tats up the wazzooo, multiple piercings, and pants around their knees thinks of my hobby or how I look. That goes for the uptight rich snobs too. Pointing out the hypocracy doesn't seem to do any good. If others think my hobby is nerdy or beneath them, fine, more things for me to find.

    I experienced the same reaction. Then I found my son's lost (9 years) wedding ring, another relative's lost (4 years) engagement ring, and lots of relics. I recently found a coin worth over $100. They no longer laugh, but I do a lot of smiling.

    Well for what it is worth here"s my take... It"s considered "weird" because it is not well understood by most people; it is generally a solo activity; and let's face it we look a bit odd waving a disc over the ground, digging holes and filling them back in. Once people understand what we're doing and why it's not as weird but I don't think it's going to become a mainstream activity.

    Shh! I think it's better we not tell anyone how great it is. If it becomes mainstream I'll never find my first gold or silver. I just started 3 weeks ago

    I can't say I've ever been laughed at by anyone who knows me, unless it was behind my back.
    which doesn't count as it's like a tree falling in the woods.

    Like others have said, when you find something cool & valuable most realize it beats golf
    unless of course golf is your thing.

    I'm sure everyone eventually gets the strangers, light hearted "you looking for Treasure ?" I just say "Looking" with a smile
    or "Find any Gold ? " which "yep" or "not today yet"just gets a friendly smile.

    and of course the occasional kid laughing to impress their friends doesn't count unless you
    were born an adult & are a Newbie to how
    kids minds work when they see something new
