Hello I'm also from Vermont and looking to chat with some people from my state I just started Detecting last year and I'm looking for a little input and maybe hook up with some people and go out hunting.
I'm the author of the Johnny Vic historic adventure series for young adults (endorsed by the Teaching American History Program Director at Castleton State College; and the John Victor adventure series, including: "The SEED" a novel of suspense nominated by a professor at Green Mountain College for inclusion on the required reading list. The inspiration? My brother, a treasure hunter with gold mines in Alaska. Am currently using my Fisher to collect my own bunch of finds. Home based in Vermont. You can see my books at Ann Rich Duncan.
