The first post after his is about food. Then many others say the same. He's probably sold his stuff and never going to respond. I wouldn't.
    Lets hope not.

    I am in a 'similar' situation.

    So before I take 30 + min to reply , I want the OP to see it.

    We all have issues , many worse than others , some issues are unfix able but some are with effort on our part.

    'Me' I need to fix what I can or Quit ( i'd feel 100X ) worse if I quit.

Hard to lift up 350 lbs but I will figure something out. I plan on going to Ohio next month with my family for a long 4 day weekend visit (8 hr drive) where my father in law has built a house on what they call "the farm" which is an old piece of property in Elyria I believe. I hope to bring my detector (vice having an argument with my wife), 36" root saw shovel, pro-pointer, etc. Lots of wooded and open area, barn, garden, campground like settings to detect that I know wont be a problem. Hopefully I wont just find nails or junk. Set the Ace 350 to coins and I should be fine. I'm looking forward to it - but since I can dig, it wont be a problem as much getting up/down I hope. I'll keep the group posted of my finds (Aug 9-12). Thanks again! (Tim)

    Sounds like a great plan , and until your trip 'Maybe?' try to walk a bit more than often , or (like Me) try to move your arms / leg stretches , extra movement helps , BTW I wish that I could live by what advice I've given , it's hard these days .

    Also maybe try to learn about detecting while it's still Hot & in Sept or Oct give it your best try.

    I also Broke Down & Started Wearing Suspenders after Buying My Umpteenth Belt,
    & Breaking it within Seconds of Putting it On & Trying to Pull it Tight enough to Work.

    Now I Don't need to buy 6 Belts a Year & My Pants Stay up
    FWIW
    Suspenders have become a 'MUST' in the last year and a half ; with my 215-220 lbs & my Coke / Pepsi ...'belly' No beer for me in years but the soda works better at putting on the fat.

    Chafed inner thighs are a big issue of mine a few times a year.

    It's like work ....This detecting stuff is def a 'Sport'. or Work I enjoy , I just got to get out of the HOUSE!!!!

I'm getting my Outback fitted tomorrow with a towing hitch and will pick up a carrier for the scooter. I have also ordered a small crate size trailer (2 wheels) that hitches behind it to carry my metal detecting stuff. Its really for my wife to get her out of the house (doesn't drive) but I'm going to use it also when I can. I'm not sure if I will need to take it to Ohio from Illinois but it's doable.

    Other exciting and surprising news. My recently married 30 yr old son from KY (grew up in CA) texted me as he is getting into metal detecting and has an Equinox 800 ordered. I told him about this site being the best there is in treasure finding. Currently he just started buying 1/2 dollars in large quantities from his bank ($5K-$10K) and has found a few 90% silvers but mainly 40% and clad(?). I'm sure he'll be a new member if not already soon. Too bad he didn't live so far away in KY as I'm from IL.

    I'll post pictures of my detecting in Ohio in a month from now when I go.

    Great reply & y'all have a wonderful trip.

    Those are great finds! Nice to see you are doing good.
    Here is a a really handy digging tool which can help with getting up off your knees. Mine give me trouble at times. This is the Lesch 1v.
