  1. My daddy is faster than your daddy...

    These three boys are in the schoolyard bragging of how great their fathers are: The first one says: "Well, my daddy is so fast, he can fire an arrow, and run to the target and get there before the arrow." The second one says: "Ha! That's nothin'! My daddy is so fast he can turn off the...
  2. First finds – trash, 42 cents, and I performed a community service!

    I am finally getting around to posting the results of my first day out with my DFX. The last time I tried posting this it took me the better part of an hour to write it up and then I lost everything when the pic was too big and I got an error message. This time I’m keeping it short, writing it...
  3. 1885 farmhouse to be bulldozed

    I recently learned that my cousin is going to bulldoze the house I grew up in. It is a solid brick farmhouse built in 1885, but he needs to make room for a new barn - and the house doesn't earn enough rent compared to what he can make on cattle... Portions of the house were added/remodeled over...
  4. British test metal detecting gloves

    Saw this article today & thought it would be of interest to the group. Maybe White's & other MD manufacturers should be looking into this. Imagine giving your kid MD gloves to crawl around on the beach and find the treasure for you... ;) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Readers of a...
  5. Going to Italy - should I take my DFX with me?

    I am going to Italy for 11 days with a group of about 20 folks in April of 2008. It is a group tour with organized events most of the time. There are three or four partial days when we are on our own - the rest of the time we are going with the group on organized tours. I've got the compact...
  6. Dig deeper?

    I'm a newbie, so forgive me if my question is stupid... Prior to my first day in the field I spent many hours reading the manual and several books I purchased - and I'm sure it will take some time to sink in. But I tried to learn everything I could from the literature - it was time to put it to...
  7. Anyone near Johnstown (Cambria County)?

    I'm getting back into MD after a long break in the action. I am not originally from PA so I don't know a lot of people or organizations in the area. Based on my searching/reading I see a club in Latrobe and clubs in Central and Eastern PA. Anything in the Cambria County area? If not, any other...
  8. Johnstown, PA flood of 1889

    I noticed the post about the flood in Austin. Johnstown had a similar, disastrous flood in 1889 (and 1936 and 1977...) in which 2,209 people perished. Flood control projects paved the river bed and sides to prevent subsequent floods, but I have to believe that much of the debris washed...
  9. Old newbie seeks local help

    Hi folks - I am new to this site. I threw away my old rusty metal detector that I owned for 30 years and bought a new White's DFX. I hadn't used my old detector for years, but re-caught the bug recently. I have family in the Phoenix area that I will be visiting from Jan 5-15 2007 and would love...
