  1. Just thought I should introduce myself. I am a new member on this forum. I have been a member on the Finds Forum and the AHRPS forum for some time, and I just found this forum. I live in Corvallis, Oregon. I belong to the Beaver State Coin Shooters metal detecting club here in Corvallis. I do mostly coin and jewelry hunting at local parks and schools. I retired from Oregon State University in 2001 after working 30+ years there. My other main hobbies besides metal detecting are fishing, hunting, and traditional archery.
  2. New Member

    Hey Everyone, New member here and just wanted to check in. Not a new guy at detecting and I love detecting the SoCal beaches near where I live. It's awesome exercise and the occasional good find is what keeps me going. Best of luck to all and thanks for having me!
  3. Hello all! I'm from Austria and I'm sorry for my bad English. At the age of 47, I'm only starting metal searches, but I have not yet decided on a device. Also wait for the Equinox and hope that it is good for my area, coniferous forest, old ways ....? I think field is a bit different than dense old forest. There were Celts, Romans, knights (Middle Ages) but also heavy fighting in World War II. It is very important to me that I also choose as a beginner a good machine suitable for this type of hunting. Tips from Pofis as most of you are, I gratefully accept! Unfortunately, the detectors here in Europe are a lot more expensive than, for example, in the USA, but that's just the way it is. Many greetings, Legolas!

  19. G'day Steve & All, it all started when I was very young, my Dad would take us camping, to a little Town called Heathcote in central Victoria in Australia. Where I would spend most of my time down at the creek panning, that was how I became hooked to this great hobby. Over the years I built my own rocker cradle and Various sluices. Then technology took a big leap into the electronic prospecting side of things and I ended up buying my first metal detector. It was a little Garret ground hog (international S.3) (which I still have today) it ran on 2x9volt batteries. With this little detector I found my first multi gram nuggy and many more followed. As the newer technology came out I/we would update till finally my current GPZ7000. Thanks All for reading my story on how I started out in this great hobby in search of the elusive yellow. Cheers to All. Mike.
  20. Hi Steve,is there room for another Cheechakos on that yacht? Signed up a long time ago, but have never posted till now. You put alot of work into your own forum with constant new interesting topics that I have been following for several years. I take my hat off to you mate. Just abit about me for members that don't know me, I prospect in far North Queensland Australia with the rest of our crew,the Goldhounds. I am also a published author. Cheers Dave.

  22. Hi Everyone

    I joined a couple of weeks ago so I thought I should say hello. I have been watching this forum for a few years and I would like to congratulate Steve on what he has achieved. Over the years I have owned 9 Minelab detectors, a Whites GoldMaster, a Garret A2b and for a very brief time a QED. I Don`t want to get into a whole thing here about the QED, so let`s just say the detector wasn`t for me. There are people about the place that have way more experience than me that can give their opinions about this detector. Again I say, I wish Howard nothing but success with his venture and congratulate him on the effort he has put in. I probably wont ever post much, because I don`t have a great deal to say, but I do read this forum quite often. thanks Mr X
  23. Gday All

    Hi guy's, joined the forum yesterday and so far I like the look of things here, still having a bit of a play and a FIDDLE. I love the like at the bottom of post a big thumbs up for that as I suggested this on the 4ummer but it was knocked back. Most of you guy's may know me (Hobo's gold) so I will post Video's and pic's for you to enjoy. A thumbs up Steve. Regards Johnny
  24. Hi Everyone

  25. Woke up Friday to snow and packed and icy roads. Got to work before they closed all the roads behind me. I was like 5 minutes ahead of the road closures. If I'd known that I'd stayed home. The temps dropped so low this weekend I didn't get out. Ground would have been frozen. Hoping for a better weekend next week as I found another hot spot to hunt that I think will be productive. Hope the rest of you got out for a chance at silver or gold. HH Mike
