Here is a link to my Etrac Backup File for use with Etrac Exchange.

Here is a link to my favorite pattern file.

Please let me know if you have questions. My home situation has changed drastically.

My 23 Year old Daughter who relapsed with Cancer died March the 18th while I held her hand in the Hospital.

My Metal Detecting is what helps me be sane so I do not mind the Questions.

Detecting aside for a minute...I get pretty torn up hearing about someone losing a child,at any age. Having 3 kids myself,while we sometimes lose ourselves in emotion and "wish" they would go away,if only for a bit,we never really wish that. One of the most heart wracking emotions I've ever felt is when the school shooting out east happened at Sandy Hook,that really sparked some outrage from many people. I wanted to take action and do SOMETHING. That "something" was to hug my kids when they got home from school and I made it a point to tell them I loved them.
Danny,I don't know you personally nor your daughter, but being a father of a 17 year old girl, we know it can be a bit of a challenge at times. All of the other times are good and well, and I hope that's the way you'll remember her. It's only with a helpless hand that I can shake yours here, and be thankful for the health of my own children.
You have a damn good handle on this detecting thing it would appear,if this hobby can help to deal with such a thing,it truly is the greatest hobby in the world.
