Default New from Upper Lower Michigan

Upper Lower? - confusing if you're not from here. An hour south of the bridge. Just up from your wedding band if you look at the back of your hand. 45th parallel and not far from the town of Gaylord if you want to use a map. And buried in snow like all of Michigan. Do they make a double D coil with a heater to melt the snow as you move along? Anyway, just joined and looking forward to learning a thing or two here.

Welcome to the Forum! I'm just a bit south of you, like at the little finger knuckle....Heres what I do...Bag coil and hunt sled hills, bagging the coil keeps the snow from balling up on it and making it weigh a ton.......or find some open water and proceed accordingly.........

You actually do snow detect! I stare out the window at all the snow and sweep the basement carpet in All Metal mode looking for re-rod. I'll have to give that coil baggie some thought.

Mud, we had quite a few Noreasters this year but I have to be honest, just looking at your pics gave me the chills

That's me in one of Mud-puppy's pictures (the tall goofy looking guy). I live near Mud but was just up in Wolverine at our family cottage on silver lake this past week.

And beer - great beer coming out of Michigan! I figured at this time of year, there's not much else for them to do up there other than brew beer and watch the snow get deeper...and, apparently, metal detect! Who knew...

Trolls yes but we never answer to fudgies!!! Thatís vacationers that come up for our fudge, locals get to claim it as their own. Besides us trolls needed to be able to call someone something. Lol

Hello from Western Australia! You can invest in one of these perhaps? Should melt the snow in seconds!

Welcome from a fellow Michigander! We do seem to be represented quite well for some reason. I am in Bloomfield but frequent a buddyís cabin in Vanderbilt, another in Fredric, and one in Lewiston.
