New To Detecting

Recommended Posts

Good morning all,

I just joined this site, as my wife and I have taken an interest to detecting. We enjoy riding out to remote areas on our ATVs and decided detecting would enhance our fun.

Looking forward to learning this new hobby and the adventures that follow.  ;)

Jen that is a tarantula, basically harmless bite like a bee sting. Wife plays with them all the time, lets them climb up her arms etc. Just one of the many fun creatures you find in the desert.

Don't like cat claws much myself.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome.

We are near Salmon Idaho. Lot of history and places to explore.

      Just registered but have been browsing these forums for quite a while and it has helped me a lot. Only started detecting a year ago with a Garrett Euroace and I've really enjoyed my new hobby. Just recently decided to upgrade and I've ordered an Equinox 800. I'm looking forward to it arriving and then putting into practice what I've learned here. Many thanks for all the helpful information that you've all took the time to post.

      Hi all,
      I'm Ray in California. Just got interested in doing prospecting for recreation and enjoying the great outdoors.
      Not expecting to get rich, just thought it would be really cool for my wife and i to find some gold nuggets while
      we are camping anywhere near possible gold country. Looks like i found the right place with like minded folks
      that know a lot more than i do about it. I bought a starter pan kit and practiced a little on our last trip to Sequoia.
      Still have to master that, but i started thinking my chances would be better using a detector to narrow my digging areas.
      Happy Hunting!
