Don’t think I mentioned these before.
I was reminiscing about my intial coromandel test trip.
Not that I did a lot of detecting, but it was a learning experience, none the less.
- Confidence to detect very public places.
Start off with a quiet beach. When you begin to creep around in bushes people can get really suspicious.
- A light gardening glove for your second hand, makes it easier to dig & keeps your hand a little cleaner. Especially good for shelly beaches. Keep the other glove handy for when you are climbing about in the bush.
- A snack - it’s are reward for your perseverence (useful for a break to give you the energy to keep going), or on the long walk home.
- Merino LongJohns. Invaluable for night hunting, or very early starts.
- Everything waterproof.
- Mini spade. Makes long clean extraction slit holes http://www.paydirt.co.nz/forums/yaf_postst2330_Non-destructive-grass-park-hunting.aspx#post22962 Great for beach and moving lots of volume for deep holes in bush.
- A very solid trowel. First one I thought was sturdy got destroyed by some compacted soil.
