    Make A Wish Trip - west coast

    My daughter was granted a wish from the make a wish foundation. (Fantastic group). Her wish is to take an RV from Iowa down through the desert over to the west coast and back through the Rockies. I should have many chances to detect during this trip, my question is which machine to take Here in Iowa there is no mineralization. I have a T2se, a gold bug pro, and an omega 8000. Any suggestions on the best all rounder for varieties of soil and beach? I’m thinking omega will do well or t2. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Any of them will work ok in the dry sand. None of them will work good in the wet. Any reason you can't take all 3?

    Saving space I guess. Detecting comes 2nd to my daughter and my 3 other children, and of course my wife. Just when I do go I want to have a decent setup. I know I don’t have a beach machine for wet sand but what about everywhere else? I’m more looking for older areas and open space. I’m not much on beaches. Only ever tried once. I see your in San Diego. We will be at a bay side campground for a few days there. Is there some good beach hunting there?

    I’m not near the beach but Cuda is right about wet soil/sand. Between the two I’d suggest the omega 8000 for its “Notch discrimination” and its coin based graphic target ID for coin-shooting. Good luck and happy hunting

    Lots of beaches to detect. Whether it will be "good" beach hunting is hard to predict. Bay side camping eh.....hmmm.....probably J st. marina area in Chula Vista on San Diego Bay, or boondocking it on Fiesta Island in Mission Bay. No good beaches by the J St. bay campground, but, several nearby on the ocean. Fiesta Island would take you over a year to detect. Ton's of junk there.....good stuff too on occasion. Lots of other beaches on Mission Bay that can be good. Miles of ocean beaches too a short drive away. PM me if you need specific areas along with where you are actually staying.
