I had the wonderful privilege of joining the guys from Garrett Metal Detectors and testing out the new Garrett Pro-Pointer AT. And put it to the test we did. Check out the video below and see what kind of nasty conditions this little bad boy can handle. Brian from Garrett also shot a video which … More Back to the Civil War site with a new weapon.
Are you ready for some 1950’s science fiction goodness? I hit a clothesline at lunch today after practically inhaling my sandwiches so as to maximize hunting time. I hit this target only seconds after turning on the machine. At first I was thinking Buzz Lightyear, but as I looked at the age of the cast … More Calling all Space Rangers!
I had been checking out a particular house for a little while, anticipating hunting it. It is a 1920’s style home in the country. A great place! I finally found an hour to “test” the ground to see what I could turn up. As I hunted, I kept turning up late 1970’s and early 1980’s … More The old turns out “new”
So in what has to be the quickest quick dig ever I found a 1941S silver quarter. I was driving home from work and decided to go a different route. I’m always on the lookout for old clotheslines. I spot one and the gentleman who owns the house was outside. I stopped, introduced myself, and … More 20 Second Dig yields silver
Love finding these little gems of joy. I’ve buried my fair share of toys over the years, so it’s fun when I find one dropped or buried. We have a great little spot to hunt where several houses used to be. They are clearing the lot to build a store. Also have some other cool … More Tootsie toys rock!
Here is Andrew’s official editing debut. He, Conner and I went to Pleasant Hill, Louisiana to one of our favorite spots. Conner did some of the camera work on this one. Without any further ado, here it is: http://youtu.be/G3rzIAoNJEA
A new Quickdig is only a day or so away. What’s special about this one is that it was shot and edited by my sons, Andrew (15) and Conner (11). Not too bad of a job if I say so myself. In the meantime, check out the nurses pin, buckle and Buffalo nickel I found … More Quickdig coming!
Had a couple hours to run out to a easy site and look what I found! My first silver half dollar. Can I say I was absolutely stoked?!? Headed back out today with my oldest son Andrew. I have video footage on this find, so a Quickdig is called for on this occasion. -JME
Never really turned my son loose with a metal detector in all the time I have been hunting. Just haven’t had the extra detector to spare, and he has always been a cameraman when he has been out with us. So I borrowed one today for a couple hour hunt and lo and behold, he … More His first coin
Spencer and Jason are still kicking, but busy with other aspects of life. Spencer’s business, SAR Global Tool is expanding, and Jason has filled what spare time he has working on photography, film and church work. On top of that, he is awaiting surgery on his wrist. A real bummer for a metal detecting enthusiast. … More We are still alive!
