When I got my first e-mail provider I think in the early 1980's I had just reconnected with some old Navy Seabee friends.

I used seabeeron@*****.***

When I got into detecting and then forums, SeaBeeRon was a natural fit!  

Guess what my first name is?!?! 😎

My user's name is self explanatory, as we all are I'm a seeker of gold, I didn't choose the user's name it was suggested by the owner/Administrator of a very old but now long gone gold forum from back in the early 90s when every name I tried to register with seems to be already in use, I liked it and have stuck with it ever since, on a few gold forums Gold Seeker is already spoken for so I'm A.K.A. on those forums as Au Seeker.

I have never hid from my real name and many forum users know me by my first name...Skip

  • I came up with my name because I like metal detecting old farms

Nothing too exciting, but I thought I'd like the same name across any metal detecting forums etc, and I was sick of using old usernames I've used in the past.  I just reversed Sam I Am to come up with maimas.

Looking at some usernames on this forum i sometimes wonder how they came up with their name. Obviously some have user names that are their real name but others are a little more bizarre. When i decided to join prospecting forums i didn't know what to have, so googled how you say Gold in different languages. I came across "Jin" which is the Chinese term for gold.

 

 

I don’t know, I had a glass of milk and it just came to me! 😉

      Ok, complete noob question here: When Im out there and listening for tones on my Equinox 800, why dont some sounds register a number? I hear all these little sounds and noises but when I go back over they sometimes disappear. Sometimes the noise changes or is very hard to find again. What can I do to help myself isolate these sounds and is every errant sound something to dig?

      I did a search on forums for possible locations in Sumpter as we are going to be there June 22-25. Most of them where older.  Is there some public areas that we can detect there?  Or is there a organization that I can pay for access? While were there just hate to miss an opportunity slip away.  Also going to Burns and John Day fossil area if anyone knows of some possibilities....detecting or other rockhounding activities... Thanks!

      Wondering if anyone else has this issue with glare when detecting with the sun behind your back. The big screen reflects back. I was wondering if anyone has tried any anti-glare film and have any suggestions.

      I would like to introduce to you my new favorite hand digger. After about three weeks of detecting, I have come to love this new digger I have come across. It's small, light weight (about 10 1/2 oz.) and super strong. The handle design is not your typical T handle, It is reversed and angled for better leverage while digging. Great for some of us with bad hands and It's made from heat treated Chromoly steel. The edges are serrated and the tip is perfectly designed and sharp. The handle has a bed liner type grip and 3/4 inch tubing. The blade is 2 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The overall length is about 12 1/2 inches at its longest measurement. This guy has figured out what diggers are supposed to be. I added a custom paint job and paracord /carabiner clip, The paint job  is holding up better than I thought and In my opinion this is one of the best diggers I have ever used.  Well where do you get one????? Lucky for you members here, It's made Here in the USA by one of our great members Kac. He makes them on a limited basis and Quantity so be aware that there are only so many to be had at a given time. Kac will give you all the details on pricing and shipping if you PM him.

      I've been updating this guide for almost twenty years now. It started back when there was little to offer in way of objective opinions on gold nugget detectors. That's not so much this case these days, but this is still the most comprehensive roundup available, along with some admittedly personal opinions about the models. These days we honestly have almost too many options, which can be confusing for beginners. So a few years ago I added my own short list of three models I recommend as safe picks for anyone around the world.
      The list was updated mainly to change my notes on the various Fisher 19 kHz models, where oddities in the First Texas marketing have now left the Gold Bug models high and dry as other FT 19 kHz models are available with better prices. I added warnings that the Minelab X-Terra 705 and GPX 4500 are in the process of being closed out and discontinued. Also added a big warning up front about counterfeit detectors - very common now in the nugget detector world.
