I got an old 4x4, and one of the follows with a similar 4wdr was prattling on (in a good way) about prospecting.
it sounds intriguing, and I figured I should probably go slow and get the recommended book, which I ordered from Amazon and get my head around the various detectors,
So the concept would be:
1) to do some local prospecting on the occasional free weekend,
2) do some on extended trips for a couple of hours/day.
3) maybe go on some trips with the others like the gentleman mentioned above.
There are a few mining sites in the area, and I suspect that they have been picked over, so that might make choice of a detector and sensitivity more of an issue. And then there is the legendary "Lasseter's reef"...
Until I have questions I'll just do a 'Chancy the Gardner' and watch.
Hi everyone! I’ve been reading and benefitting from the advice in this forum for the last 3 months. I finally got around to joining.
I spent 5 years finding lots of great relics using a V3i, then I took a 5 years break. I started reading this forum and it inspired me to sell my beloved V3i and buy an Equinox 800. I’ve been using the Nox for 2 months now and I love it! I’m finding lots of relics and coins at my old hunted out spots.
Thanks to Steve and everyone else for the great info you post here.

Hello all! I'm a long time forumer, but new to this forum. I just returned from a 7 day metal detecting trip to the UK and met the greatest guy on this earth. Very knowledgeable in detecting and the most down to earth man you will ever meet. I was blessed to meet and hunt hunt with Steve Hershbach!! He invited me to come join in. So here I am!
Looking forward to seeing some of the great stuff everyone is finding!
