I am a single father and I have 2 girls still at home, ages 16 and 12. I retired from the Army National Guard in 2012 and took an early disability retirement from my federal job. I work full-time for the state of AR still with the military.
I have been metal detecting on and off since a little boy. My father dabbled in it a bit and my earliest memories with him were finding pennies and junk. I purchased my first detector back in 1999 and I've used about every one out there since then.
I have also traveled out west doing a little bit of gold panning. I have found a little, but have never been able to dedicate a trip to soley pursue panning.
Th'ing is something that I enjoy doing just for the historical aspect and getting out and enjoying the outdoors. Making a good find is just the icing on the cake so to speak. I enjoy seeing other folks finds, and hearing their stories about as much as finding something myself. After considering my long list of endeavors it seems like this is a hobby that I have always naturally gravitated toward. I hope to meet others that I can enjoy and share with.
