Default Hello, from South Florida

Hi, my name is Mike and like post says I'm from South Florida. I had a Fisher md several years ago but sold it because I wanted to use it at the beach and found it never really worked well for my purpose. Well, due to some high blood pressure issues I figure I need to find something relaxing and take my mind off stuff. I think getting back in metal detecting might help. I'm just not sure what I should get as I will mostly be using it at the beach and occasionally in other random locations. Thanks for having me!

Welcome from the Hudson Valley! There's a lot of good advice on the forum on beach MDs... Looking forward to getting back on the beach as soon as it thaws here!
