Sounds like a good time was had by all on the day that those things were lost.

I will get no rest until I buy a new metal detector. Gawd, my shrink loves me.

That's good news. Permit costs zero $ and you can detect in city parks. That's just too weird. A city issued permit that doesn't cost anything. I've never heard of such a thing. My detector should arrive today according to the UPS tracking number.

Mine came in yesterday. Unfortunately UPS, as usual, wouldn't deliver it so I had to drive across town and pick it up so I didn't get it home until late. I managed to get it put together and turned it on to make sure it worked but that's about it. I guess I'll be able to mess with it this weekend.

BTW, which city parks charge $8 to park?

I haven't had a lot of time to mess with mine either (softball takes up most of my time right now). I REALLY need to learn my detector, I hope that the CD that came with it will shed some light on how to use it. I am totally new to this. You have the same one I got so if you know any pointers let me know.
Thanks~

Has anyone gone to the metal detecting forum that is listed above. I registered and have posted a few times. I noticed yesterday that I could no longer view any of the images on the threads. Today I tried to post and it would not let me. I happened to notice that I had a private message. The message was from one of the forum administrator's saying that the site had been hacked and to not bother logging in until the problem had been resolved and to not click on any of the links that said "Donate". I thought I was seeing a lot of "donate" buttons that I didn't remember seeing before.

I guess I should have finished the sentence. It's gonna cost $8.00 for parking at 114 West Commerce so you can get your "free" permit...http://mysmileyz.com/s/657.gif (broken link)
