I have been metal
detecting for over 15 years and I often tell people “this isn’t my hobby, this
is my passion”. I got into the hobby simply because of my passion for history.
I started of the hard way – learning things on my own. I have learned so much
along the way and I enjoy helping other in this hobby whether its sharing my
knowledge or helping someone swig their detector for the first time. By no
means do I consider myself an expert. I am still learning from others and I
want to thank all of the great people who have helped me and been kind enough
to share their knowledge with me.
I started submitting articles to metal
detecting magazines a few years back and have had over 20 articles published to
this point. I have been lucky enough to find hundreds of silver coins, large
cents, Indian head pennies, a few rare coins and my favorite –relics. The best
thing about this great hobby though is all the great friendships I have made.
came about in January of 2008. With no experience building a forum I set out to
put together a site for other in Ohio
the share their finds, experiences and most of all form new friendships. The
forum has come a long way and has grown from beyond what I ever expected it to
be. One of the proudest things for me is how many friendships have been forged
from the forum. Since then I have also built minelabforums.com and a few forums
for friends including Pennsylvaniadiggers.com
About a years after I started the forum and a
few years of my wife pestering me (thank you Teri) I became a Minelab dealer.
Now I am not only a Minelab dealer but also carry Garrett, Teknetics and Tesoro’s.
We hope you enjoy the Forums and articles
