This section is for metal detecting and this thread suggest age limits on detecting. I didn't know that my age was important for detecting.

The section on "Everything else" seems more appropriate for your age.

My age (older then most of you) does not determine how good or lousy I am at detecting.

'39' of course, isn't it obvious from my picture? Have you ever seen such a beautiful, sainty looking, lovely speciman of the future Man??

Besides that, I run 20 kilometers in the morning before breakfast, do 400 situps and 300 pushups to start the day.

While I am at the computer I am constantly walking with that new fangled walking machine.

I have found and recovered a shipload of Spanish Escudos, so i never have to work again.

Anyone have a spare $400 so that I can upgrade my Radioshack T-80 computer?

Four hundred dollars? I'll even point you toward all the clad after I help you upgrade your detector.

I'm a few minutes shy of of being double your age. I hope you can spare some time away from your exercise to keep up with us old guys.

Been awhile since I posted, 47 now! Physically, that is! In my mind I am still 19, and even deluded enough to picture myself that way mentally AND act likewise!! Regards, Richard

I have been collecting social security for a long time and I still can not sit still. So stop telling me that your too old to dig and get out there and remember to fill your holes back in so I don't have to do it for you children.
