All I can say about the Silver City Treasure Seekers NEW ENGLAND TREASURE SHOW this past Saturday, is that it was fantastic! And I’m not going to write an article about it because I think these pics tell all… Read More »

I’d like to introduce Jeffrey Bennett, or Cap’n Jeff as he’s known. He’s fairly new to the world of metal detecting, but hooked already (that always seems to happen). He’s also started a new blog/forum that I think is worth your while to check out.
I like Cap’n Jeff’s writing style, so I agreed to do an interview for him. He’s got a flair for keeping it real, and a way with words that is very down to earth. I know first hand how difficult it is to write about metal detecting, and at the same time keep it interesting, so I predict he’ll be pretty successful at it. Read More »
This years 24th Annual Best of the Northeast (BONE) Hunt, held the last week of April in New Hampshire reminded me of one of those TV reality shows where they throw a bunch of strangers in a house together, start filming, and see what happens…
Ah, well, there was no drama, sorry to disappoint you, and we didn’t get any of it on video, but you’ll just have to take my word on it that throwing 4 women who love metal detecting in a house together for 5 days only adds up to fun, fun, fun! Read More »
Detecting Diary–Weekend 2, April 2017:
I started preparing the night before for our clubs “Fun Hunt” which was secured by one of our club members.
One of the club’s goals this year is to have at least 5 fun hunts. After forming a hunt committee, there are already a few hunts scheduled, and we are only a few weeks into the detecting season. So I’d like to say a big thank you to the hunt committee, your efforts are appreciated–Thank you! Read More »
Detecting Diary–Weekend 1, April 2017:
After being cooped up all winter, in a miserable state of lackofdetectinitis, I woke up one morning about a month ago and something seemed odd. I looked out the window and thought–there is definitely something different about today. My Mini Schnauzer “Abby” noticed it too. Instead of her normal stance of staring hard at the door, waiting for it to magically open for her, she was pacing in front of it. I quickly threw on a jacket and performed my task as the magic door opener, and she literally sprinted out into the yard. Read More »

Okay, so Joe at Treasure Classifieds got this whole thing started with How to tell if a Detectorist Lives Out in the Sticks. He then mentioned he’s from “The City”, which around these parts means NY City, and he would like someone to come up with a version of “How to tell if a Detectorist Hunts in the Big City“. I suggested he get us started, and he sent along the following: Read More »
I received this link from Joe over at Treasure Classifieds with a few tips on “How to tell if a Detectorist Lives out in the Sticks”. It brought a smile to my face, and I thought I would share it with you, with the hopes it might bring a smile to yours too.
Oh, and in case you’re not familiar with the site, Treasure Classifieds is a place where you can buy, sell & trade used metal detector’s, detecting gear and equipment. There are no listing fees—yup, that’s right, no fees—the listings to buy and sell are FREE!
They also have a great detecting forum with general discussion, show & tell, contests, videos, and more…
So have a look around while your there & Happy Hunting!
The Land or Sea Pinpointer
by Gold Digger Innovative Products
Another pinpointer review? Yup.
And with all the probes I’ve reviewed, as you can imagine, I’ve got quite a few in my collection. Even so, there are only two that I mainly use. The every day one which I use most of the time, and the waterproof one for the beach or rainy days.
Your probably wondering why I just don’t use the waterproof one all the time, and that’s a valid question, so I’ll tell you why. Because I don’t feel my waterproof probe performs as well, or has the depth of my everyday probe, so I switch them based on where I’m hunting. Read More »
Life has been so hectic the past few months that trying to find time for myself and metal detecting has been taking some serious strategic planning. There’s been multiple weddings, wedding showers, birthday parties, family parties, just have to go even though I don’t want to parties, etc, etc… Read More »
We attended the 3rd Annual Catskill Mountains Coin Shoot & Relic Hunt in Big Indian, NY, this past weekend, and I have to give the Nor’easters Metal Detecting Club a good dose of recognition here for putting on such a great event.
There were 19 different sites to hunt, and it was very well organized. Descriptions and photos of the sites (with GPS addresses–thank you) were handed out in a nice booklet, and each site was clearly marked so you were sure you were in the right place. Read More »
Pet Peeve: How annoying is it when people refer to us as “He (or she) is a metal detector?” Or, “Oh, You’re a metal detector?”
Dear rest of the world who do not metal detect:
We are Detectorist’s. We are not the machine, we are the user’s of the machine. Therefore, Detectorist’s. Read More »
There are two different versions of Nighthawking that I’ve come the be familiar with; the American version, and the UK version:
The American version of Nighthawking is loosely defined as metal detecting in the evening or at night.
The UK version of Nighthawking is metal detecting at night, for the purpose of plundering sites of their precious archaeological artifacts, under the cover of darkness. Read More »
Since I ranted on about my troublesome VW problems, I feel it’s only fair that I divulge the outcome of the VW saga.
The problem turned out to be the transmission, but thankfully, VW had extended the warranty to 100k on that particular transmission. Fortunately I had not gone over the 100k, but I did come in pretty darn close at 99,500k. Something went right–yeah! Read More »
