His little Go-Find isn't such a bad detector, it lacks Target ID numbers and just has 4 segments, 1 ferrous, 3 non-ferrous but if he digs all non-ferrous he'd do well.  It goes quite deep, doesn't need to ground balance and is simple to use and being simple takes the stress out of detecting.  Folds up in seconds into a backpack too.

Hopefully he spreads the word and others take it up too, it seems beneficial and it can be very relaxing and calming roaming around.

A little bit of advice too Paul, if you click to edit your post you can fix your own caps in the title next time.

Nice story, I look forward to hearing about him finding his first ring 🙂

The system forces each word to cap the first letter only. I have to do specific overrides for any word that has caps anywhere but first letter. This is also why putting quotes around things messes with the capitalization - the quote sign is treated as the first letter of a word. Inserting a space before a letter will make it capitalize. Using full spellings instead of abbreviations is another solution Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome instead of PTSD for example. Or wait a day or two and I will get around to doing an override. :smile:

The inside of my head most often resembles a bag of cats. Metal detecting for me is a form of meditation when I get into "the zone" and wonderfully relaxing. I enter the flow where time ceases to exist. Metal detecting can be very good for people who need constant low level exercise (recovering from heart attack, for instance) and for calming minds that are otherwise anything but calm.

Well said

Detecting works wonders with my PTSD. My mind is clear, I’m not freaking out over crowds or people around me, and I’m more focused. Whatever the case I truly love getting out there detecting.

      Can I reduce the sensitivity of my GPX 5000 but still keep good depth. 
      I'll show you the problems I'm getting in this video

      In FNQ Australia, there are a number of properties you can go on & detect for gold. Most places are pay to detect & are well set up for camping with designated areas set aside for metal detecting, if you are fortunate enough to have access to private leases & cattle stations with gold bearing country even better again. Up until today, I had access to one of these private cattle stations to prospect on. Unfortunately I no longer have access, this is due to the fact there are still people doing the wrong thing while on these properties. The rubbish left behind at camp sites and open detector holes for cattle to break legs in is out of control. On top of that you got fence jumpers & poachers running a muck too. This is causing huge issues for for graziers forcing them to close the gates to everyone & in most cases getting access now, is nearly impossible. 
      I can't express in words how disappointing this is for us guys & girls who are doing the right thing, only to be told you can't detect at your favourite spot anymore because of w#%kers ruining it for everyone. So the quest for a new spot starts again....  Take only gold and memories & leave only foot prints. So we will all have somewhere to look for gold in the future!

      I was looking around the new Minelab website and I noticed they now say the Equinox is single frequency on Gold Modes, is this some sort of error or are new Equinox 800's coming without multi-IQ on their gold modes?  I found nothing wrong with MultiIQ Gold modes so I don't see why they'd change it.
      https://www.minelab.com/metal-detectors/equinox-800
      Detect Modes
      Equally adaptable for all target types and ground conditions:
      Park Field Beach Gold: Gold Mode operates the high single frequencies of either 20 kHz or 40 kHz to detect gold nuggets in mineralised soils.

      Used Cherry Pick settings from the Handbook for  a brief session in a local park.  Found a penny, the handle of a spoon.  If it ever was silver plated, that is long gone.  Then found a quarter-sized disk, a token of some sort.  It says "Where a kid can be a kid" on both sides and one side was stamped OTTS.ORG.  I  just tried that website and it is apparently closed.  There was a message to the effect to leave your contact info if you have any business with this site.
       
      Question:  is there something more than the Lesche Predator but less than a shovel -- a mini shovel, perhaps?
