Happy New Year, Paydirt folks.
So I’m new to metal detecting… like newly minted new. I literally just bought my new-to-me X-Terra 705 a few hours ago and am heading out for the first time in a few hours.
I am a lifelong rock hound, having cut my teeth pulling agate, carnelian, Thompsonite, Jasper and other delightful semi-precious gem stones out of Lake Superior. I’ve always been a seeker; antiques, seashells, hard to find pipes, cigars and tobaccos. The looking, to me, is always at least as much fun as the finding.
I hope to be a regular poster, and have already learned a lot from you guys and gals from posts of the past. If you have advice for the new detectorist, I’d be happy to hear it.
Wishing you all a safe and happy New Year, maybe I’ll see you on the beach tomorrow morning tripping over the remains of the night before.
