    I would keep detecting, but be able to travel to all sorts I=of exotic places, where the finds would be potentially finer, the weather is warm, beaches are long and women are babes.
    I would still go to yard sales, flea markets, estate sales, etc, but be pickier.
    I would own every detector known, and have a professional grade, very challenging test garden.
    I might even experiment gold prospecting, maybe.
    I would be so happy!

    I would retire. Wait,, I already am retired. I would go metal detecting whenever I felt like it, wait ,, I already do that.
    A wall, that's it,, I'll build a wall. Hire some illegal immigrants and build a wall.
    Let me run out and play the lottery.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Ah, dreaming on a Saturday afternoon.
    I’d pay off my two daughter’s college loans. Donate to Jude’s Hospital. Make sure everyone that’s important to me is set.
    Buy two killer homes. One in Alaska near the water with cedar logs. Second one in a tropical area that doesn’t suffer with hurricanes. Adopt an Alaskan Husky puppy or two.
    Spend our days detecting and enjoying life with no financial worries.
    Oh and some income property.

    I would bow hunt all over the country, if not the world. Off season I would detect the same ( but different). And buy a couple hundred acres in a very rural area out west.

    Metal Detecting
    I would be on a beach daily, along with an actual beer assistant and another sunscreen applier ( most likely soft handed wenches)
    Just for fun I would bury graded plastic covered morgans for you guys to find

    No no no, If you quit metal detecting, you will waste away. An end to blue skies, green grass and fresh air.
    You can spend money in your off time. Keep moving with adventure. Money is not everything.

    Not only would I not give up metal detecting, I would also become SCUBA certified so I can detect the ocean AND I would have several claims out west for gold prospecting AND a gem claim. I'd eat well and treasure hunt until I can no longer dig.

    I already detect all I can do with these old bones, so, that wouldn't change any. The locations probably would though. Nothing like hitting some virgin sites around the world. I'd probably fund a treasure hunting expedition if I saw a promising site.
