    The way a cell phone interferes with a detector (wink), my phone only goes as far as my vehicle. That way I never get disturbed while out in the field.

    This hobby requires lots of bending, kneeling, climbing hills, and just plain walking. For an older person, it is good exercise. I use to detect for 6 hours plus, but age and physical problems now limit my time to three hours max. It is weird how my time starts and finishes. I feel extremely energetic and flexible for about 2 and 1/2 hours and without warning, I hit my limit. I am done for the day. I use to be a gradual running out of gas, but now is like someone turned a switch on me and I am done. Sort of like a lithium rechargeable battery.

    If I don't have 3 hours to spare, I usually won't even go out...

    I can go for a while, but it usually ends when my junk pouch pulls my pants down
