    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.

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

    Relic & Nugget hunting, but I do it all
    I like to make a day of it but I need to take a break or call it quits after two hours. If I don't take a break after two hours I lose my competitive edge.

    It depends where I'm at, and who's with me. If my mom and dad are home, short bursts of about thirty minutes. If the cats are away, this mouse plays all day long!

    Mostly 6 hours or more, because I usually need 1 hour with my bike to visit the detecting places and otherwise it would be not worthwhile. I always take some food with me and take breaks every 2 hours to regenerate my concentration.

    I usually go for 2-4 hours if I'm detecting on my own, however if I'm detecting with friends, I usually detect for longer.
