Greetings Ryan! You are among quite a few oldies with the same afflictions as you - brought on by the advance of years. I'm one who has been at it now since 1968 when I got my first detector. It used huge batteries and was a vacuum tube model from White's. Not a single transistor in it. How I ever managed to lug that beast around is beyond me. But I did.

I have a much better selection of machines these days. I feel like a golfer deciding which to choose today. Let's see, shall I use the GroundHog or the Bounty Hunter? Oh, the Minelab looks nice today - and light!

This forum is the absolute best on the web for treasure hunters. Enjoy yourself and again, welcome aboard.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Hi Ryan.  Good luck on your return to metal detecting.  I've found it to be one of the best forms of physical and mental exercise.  We lost two of our most active detectorists, in our town of Brownwood in central Texas, within the past year.  They were longtime members and officers of our Central Texas Treasure Club.  Elton served as President of our club until only a few months of his death at age 91 and Ed served as our Vice President for many years until he died at over 90 years old.  Believe it or not, while in their eighties, these two men were detecting at every opportunity.  Both men were mentally sharp all of their lives and they proved that metal detecting helps to keep us "young".

Hey Ryan,

I'm an old Fogey down in Junction City, Oregon.  Not retired yet but looking forward to the day.

I'm a newbie to the hobby.  I have a Garrett Ace 250.  I've been researching the history of our state, particularly the Willamette River.  My ambition is to find a genuine Double-Eagle gold coin.

Let me know if you ever get down this way and we'll compare notes on the best places to detect in Oregon.

Welcome to the forum.  We'll be lookin' forward to seeing your finds.  HH to you!

Rambledog

Hay Ryan,

I am a lot like you. My family caues me to put MDing in the back seat
for a long time.

I became disabled. I am old now. I got back into it two years ago. I
found these forums. Then I stared taking off.

Look at my photo album. See what a old delapidated, land locked guy
can do in a couple of years, if he puts his mind to it.
