  1. Moved from Pa. to Colorado

    Hi, We left eastern Pa. and now reside in Boulder Colorado. I have a gold detector, a relic detector and a sluice box plus other prospecting equipment. I just love finding stuff and am anxious to get out and start searching now that we are settled in here in our new home. If anyone out there...
  2. Heading to Jersey Shore?

    The incoming storm looks to be a big sand mover. I've never made it to the shore on the heels of a storm like this but I'm ready to go. Fresh batteries, fuel efficient car, motivation...I've got it all but I'd like to go with someone with more experience. I'm in Eastern Pa. (Kutztown, Berks...
  3. Lookout, here they come!

    Here in Pa. someone has just started to air a commercial where they will sell you the secret by which your bank MAY give you FREE Silver! From the wording, it is pretty obvious that someone wants to tell people about CRH for a fee. I guess if you're too lazy to profit from the effort of...
  4. A couple of questions.

    I dowse with some success and have come up with a couple questions I don't understand. I often just walk with my rods and don't really consciously "tell them" what I'm looking for. I guess the assumption is that I want to find metallic objects and I usually do. I seem particularly sensitive...
  5. Dowse Assateague Island?

    I just returned from Va. where I had an interesting exchange with the head life guard on the beach at assateague seashore. Having noted the sign which emphatically stated "No Metal Detectors", I asked if I could dowse with a couple of bent coathangers. He didn't say yes and he didn't say no...
  6. Test Garden

    I'm thinking of "seeding" A clean area of my yard with various targets and trash to test detector settings for depth, recovery from trash nulls and ground tracking speed. It seemed simple enough at first but I have a ton of questions arrising as I consider what targets to plant at what depth...
  7. Appeared like a pearl in an oyster

    Over lunch in a bar I got to know a fellow who worked for a friend. Somehow the conversation wound around to the fact that I had a metal detector and he launched into his story about how he and his wife were coming home late one night and having a heated argument. Bad went to worse and she took...
  8. Coronal Mass Ejection

    I don't want to re-ignite any adversarial discussions like we have seen on this subject in the previous year. I am however really curious what effect these sun eruptions may have on my own dowsing abilities. On coast-to-coast last night these most recent flares were discussed as being huge and...
  9. 12" Hothead on old Whites

    12" Hothead on old White's I have an old White's Eagle Spectrum II from '89-'90. I use it with the stock coil as my coin machine when I go to the parks, etc. It was a year old when I picked it up from a guy who couldn't figure it out. It came with a 12" Hothead coil marked "Dayton electronics"...
  10. Goin for Gold!

    Go'in for Gold! I have been detecting for more than 10 yrs. and have 2 old but very functional Whites (VLF Beach Hunter and a more complex Eagle II Sl). Both do fine for coins and relics but neither is optimized for gold and I'm heading to Colorado soon and in addition to panning I'd like to...
  11. Dowsing in the vertical plane

    This sumer I had the occasion to visit Colorado and pulled out my rods one afternoon to try gold dowsing along a Mt. road. A strong signal took me straight to a narrow quartz vein in the steep rock face on the side of the road. There were others like it all thru the rock but only this one drew...
  12. A Newbie on Board

    I just found this site today and joined immediately. I'm psyched to have found it! I have used "L" rods for years to find pipes and wires. I am an electrician and this was all I ever thought to use them for. For years I have watched the gold prospector show and have also used a metal detector to...
