    New Detectorist! Bought Excal 1000

    WOW! O.K. New to detecting and my Excal 1000. Went to Clearwater Beach, FL. to teach myself the tones. Recovered $1.71 - LOL - GEE I am proud of mysef! One guy ran up behind me and threw a quarter down by my coil! He didn't think I saw him do it! I picked it up without the coil detecting it, put it in my pocket and said to him, gee another 5,000 of these and I will have paid off this machine. With a laugh from him, I went about my exploring. Man, this is going to be a great hobby.

    What sherm, you don't like our northern beaches this time'a year?? We don't even have ice up here in WI.
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    A quarter! I had a guy throw a nickel towards me as I worked the area around him and his girlfriend. He had his head turned laughing as I scooped it up. His girlfriend had an embarassed look on her face. I winked at her and got a smile. I walked away with an easy nickel and a smile from a very pretty young lady. I love the beach. Welcome to the forum, maybe I'll see you down there. I get down there every so often.

    Welcome to the hobby and forum. You have a great detector there that will soon pay for itself if you get out with it. Let us know how the hunts go, we'd enjoy hearing from you.

    Welcome to the forum and our obsession! Always good to see newbies here.
    I wish people would throw coins to me when I'm out detecting.....it sure would save alot on callouses!

    Hope you have alot of luck in the TB area. My old stomping grounds!

    Happy Hunting,

    Welcome. A quarter, you must be on the rich peoples beach. I only get pennies throw at me. If they would have been quarters I would have my detector payed for. I scoop all coin signals on general purpose.

    Keep detecting, Keep finding, Keep digging!
