Wow looks like you all had fun on the exchange, this year I am in for sure, I probably owe some of you already for all your help. I love the gift of giving, I really dont need anything in return many of you who support the troops have given already and thank you. Looking forward to a great MD year.

Default Snail Mail

Hook, the snail mail finally bestowed upon me your gift last night and it was worth the wait. Pictured is 7 wheats including several earlier than the 1920's, a flattened penny tourist token from New Orleans, 6 Mardi Gras tokens from various years a Frey meats medallion from the '84 Louisiana World Fair and my personal favorite a 1891 V Nickel. All things I am very unlikey to ever find dirt fishing in Florida. Thanks Hook for the gift, I am very happy to add these to my collection. Look me up when you get to Florida. This gift exchange was a great idea and I am already looking forward to next years. Once again Thanks carol and Vlad.

I'm glad you liked the gifts Stan...hope they fit into your collection! I'm still hearing the wife say how much she loves the ring you sent, and now the daughter wants it also !

, I got my package in from Andrew at New England Detectors (Minelabdealer on the forums)

All I keep saying is wow!


When I opened the package, the first thing I saw was the Lesche Sampson, I was totally stoked, I've been wanting to get one for a while now

After that It was gift after gift, I was in disbelief... I kept saying out loud,"it just keeps going"

Man I could probably write a book here on how great of a package this is but I'll let some pics do the talking...


This is the shot of everything fresh out of the box!!


Here is My new tools, Sampson digger, Lesche tool, Leathermans tool... and a nice set of Minelab Binoculars, and a sweet high def camera that can mount to my detector
As I said it just kept going...

Here we have a N.E.D. T-shirt, Minelab Baseball cap, Minelab Stainless steel water bottle, and a few dirt rags for the parks.
Also we have a copy of The Treasure Hunter's Handbook by Andy Sabisch and a Garrett 2012 calender (I don't think my wife approves of miss july though)


Lastly, I have an awesome holiday letter from Andrew, a N.E.D. patch and drumroll please....... A 1934 Silver Peace Dollar

I'm still in awe of everything, I'm surprised everyone around me didn't tell me to shut up as I went on and on today
I'm deeply appreciative of these truely Awesome gifts, and of this forum where we can all come to share in each others storys, trials, tribulations, and Glory...

Thanks Andrew and N.E.D., you've made a happy camper and a friend down here in Louisiana

And Carol + Vlad, thanks again for the fun, you two are great!!



Sincerely
Bud-Skywalker

Default Got mine!

A couple gifts from Dave in Phenix City. A new finds pouch, and right at the nick of time. My old one was coming apart from shoving my turf knife into it. The second item was a spanking new Gator digger. I used both within an hour of getting them. Thanks again Dave.

Well, I guess Andrew doesn't have anything left to sell.

BudSkywalker, you scored. Congratulations and Andrew, you "done good"

How do I go about getting Andrew to draw my name next year??

This was fun and I'm anxious for next year.
