    Just speaking to how winning the lottery would affect my detecting habits:

    I'd probably have more detectors to choose from, but still only use 1 or 2 of them. Maybe 3.

    I'd hire some broke archeologists to do research for me, and pay them on a per find basis.

    I'd probably still do my own research too. I think it fun.

    If there was a property I wanted to detect but couldn't get permission, I'd just buy it for cash.

    Maybe strat a charity metal detecting adventures club, taking people around the world on detecting trips, all for a reasonable tax deductible donation. Not sure how that would work, but with enough money is hire someone to figure it out.

    I'd probably also hire someone to dig my holes for me when i get a little older. I could do more detecting if I spent less time digging.

    I would buy a LRD. Set the dial to titty bar. Ace 150 with 20 inch Nel... then spend too much time on treasure net...then spend the rest at oak island.

    the end

    No way would I stop. I would put a little more money into tools of the trade. I would have more time to do it because I WOULD NOT BE WORKING ANY MORE. Detecting is so burned into my pshycie that there is no way I could ever stop... or want to.

    I think i would also be looking at properties with lots of land that are on or near old battlefields. I think it would be an awesome experience to open land up to the public for the sole purpose of relic hunting. To hell with the ARCHIES!

    I have talked about this in the past with many others - I got in this for the hobby in 1975 and would continue doing it
    the lottery would allow me to visit more islands and get me into even more spots - living in new England I drive by many 1600-1700 houses and farm fields
    with that kind of money I wouldn't mind just pulling up to a farmer and offering a few $100 to hit property and even more for real nice old historic houses which we have 1000s up here - could probably get into some spots by making large donations and offering to donate most of the finds

    Buy more metal detectors and go to places that I would never have got to before the lottery just to metal detect them.....oh and I would grease palms to detect in places that are "off limits".....

    Winning that kind of money would only allow me to detect wherever and whenever I wanted. I would follow the prime detecting weather and crowds around the world.
