There may be a female or two in that club that I alluded too a few posts back. It's definitely not a "male only" sport. My ex used to enjoy it. The hardest part of this sport, for me, is finding places to detect, then getting permission.

I find your comments so true. Yes I have been to U Tube and watched pleanty of videos but still have a long way to go. My biggest problem is the difference between beer cans, tab tops and coins espically 5 cents as they are so close. I am in Jackson Springs where the old hotel stood and people have dumped alot of trash here. I bought my E Trac on E Bay with a wand that is removable from the shaft to zero in on an object. I am current doing research on my local area in hopes of find a site to search. Any detecting I do I try to find out who owns the area and any digging, all material is put back the way I found it. I did alot of Civil War digs outside Richmond, Va when I lived their and found all kinds of thing but the Nautlus was very simple to operate and it wasn't hard to find relics. This machine will go better than a foot deep so I find things that others have overlooked.

You should start up a Metal Detecting / treasure hunters MeetUp group.
MeetUp is a website service that makes it easy to run a club. (It doesn't matter what that club does, this site helps clubs do events).
I did a quick search on their site, and they didn't have any on this subject right now.

My 9 yo found my old childhood Coin Hustler 1 a couple of weeks ago and dragged it out. It still worked, and we dug up some fun things in the yard, in a park, and along a creek. Lots of fun. I completely overdid it and upgraded to Garrett AT Pro package which should arrive tomorrow.

Looking for any advice on holding my son's interests as well as any good areas in the western triangle to consider.

Thanks in advance.
