    Re: How long detecting?

    started about 1973-4. Had an old timer searching a baseball diamond & I watched himpicking up coins. I got the TH bug and bought my first machine which was a Whites 5900 Di. I love this hobby

    Re: How long detecting?

    I had a detector in the early 1980's it grew legs and ran away.

    "She Who Must be Obeyed" got me one a couple of weeks ago to replace the one that ran away.

    Re: How long detecting?

    I'm an old timer, bought my first detector a Relco Frontiersman in late 1969 and have been addicted since finding my first Merc dime... in my front yard trying it out.Have had about 10 different detectors since that time...6 of them the White's brand.
