Default Rookie from NC

Hi, new here and to MD. I'm 43, married with kids, and live in Clayton, NC. I decided to jump in by buying an AT Pro because I plan on hunting at the beach, lake, and land. My 6 year old son talked me into it after he watch The Detectorists with us. I think it'll be fun to hunt the beach with him when we go in April.
Thanks,

Thanks, the clincher was when he layed a necklace and ring on the ground in front of me and sang "I am waiting for you".
