Hi From Southern Ct


Recommended Posts

Hi 

Joining from Southern Connecticut, with a just purchased XP ORX. I live near several beaches, but hoping to use the ORX primarilly on camping and hiking trips in in CT and California. I grew up in California, and have camped throughout the United States, including Alaska.

This is my second metal detector. In high school I bought a very inexpensive Fisher but left it for my younger brother when I went to college. He made one unusual find: When searching in a field in the California foothills he found a portable Sony Color TV sitting in the grass. Believing it was stolen, he turned it in to the police. Two weeks later, the police called and said the TV was his—it was worth more than the metal detector.

Welcome, i think you are going to like it here, lots of cool people with tons of metal detecting experience and good stories like yours about your brother's t.v. find. Hope you have time to share some of your finds. HH  ht

Sounds like you'll get the best of both 'worlds' of USA detecting -- Colonial coin and relics in CT and gold country in CA.  Welcome and we look forward to more stories!

Welcome, glad to see another from CT here. I am up in Litchfield county but will get to the beach every now and again. For now it’s farm fields and old homesites. Maybe we will run into each other one day. Let us know how you do.

Welcome, you got some good territory for coin and relic hunting in CT. Bet you would do really well with the Orx.

      G'day from lovely downunder. I thought I'd introduced myself but evidently not, apologies.
      I had a GP3000 and 3500 many years ago. Had to sell up due to divorce but kept my Sovereign GT for the beach and parks.
      Back on the hunt now so will be picking up a GM soon when they come back up on special, and something a bit better down the road when I'm a better off financially.
      Just thought I'd say hi,,,and yes I have an old banjo LOL.

      Hi,
       
       I'm a old (age over 50) detectorist from Italy. I used a lot of m.d. in 26 years (various model of Minelab, Whites, Tesoro, XP, Fisher, Garrett and the latest Rutus), but i love so much the Whites Spectrum XLT. This is for me the best detector of all time. I hope to know news and interesting contents about the magic m.d. world!
      Greetings from Italy

      I have some unexpected extra time on my hands and am going to give metal detecting another try after quite a few years.  I was on a couple of forums that might not exist anymore.  I took the detectors out of the closet and brushed off the cobwebs and dust.  I have a Troy Shadow X2, Tesoro Bandido II, and a Whites GMT.  I mainly used the Shadow for hunting for relics and found a few. I recently sold a Tesoro Eldorado to a friend and hopefully he'll get the detecting bug and we can go out and find something interesting.    I'd like to resume the hobby and search for relics, gold, and meteorites out here in the desert.  This is a great forum with expert reviews on detectors and many informative posts.  I hope to learn quite a bit and enjoy the hobby.

      I am retiring at the end of August.  I will be pulling my 5th wheel around the US hunting nuggets and relics.  I have been mostly vacation detecting for a couple of years now.  I am really looking forward to doing A LOT more of it with way better equipment.  I have met a lot of other detectorists out there and what I'm looking most forward to is making friends with more of you.  I get a lot of enjoyment from sitting around the campfire swapping stories, getting to know people and absorbing some of the vast knowledge of how and where to hunt.  I hope to see y'all down the road!

      Joined this forum and wanted to say hi. Started detecting in January when I purchased an Equinox. Have only been detecting on the beach areas around Fort Myers so far and love it.
