About Me


Although I have always been an explorer and seeker of adventure I’ve only been metal detecting on a serious level for the past 20 years. I absolutely love this hobby. Not just metal detecting but every aspect of treasure hunting. Bottle digging, prospecting, arrowhead hunting etc. Most people who enjoy this hobby are also big fans of history. I don’t know how you couldn’t be. The thrill of the hunt and the love of history is what drives my enthusiasm for this great hobby.

From the very first day that I used a high end metal detector I kept a handwritten journal. That journal now consists of multiple 3 ring binders of various sizes. with this blog style website I can now share some of those entries with you plus other ramblings that aren’t in the journals.

Hope you enjoy these posts and happy hunting,
