Thanks! I enjoy this hobby and take it quite seriously so that could explain a few things.

50 for me and started in 2010. I joke it was the beginning of my mid life crisis. Unfortunately working more hours now than ever, with an up tick in travel. Hopefully this will lend itself to slowing down earlier thereby giving me more swinging time!

Iím 61 and started metal detecting around about 1968 when I got a Radio Shack metal detector kit for Christmas. Put it together and off I went all through high school. Along about college life took over, but I had a friend that was a big history buff that kinda kept my hand in it. In 2008 I bought an Ace 250 intending to dive back into it. Unfortunately I injured my knees about that time and havenít been able to do much in the way of digging. About 2014 I found you guys and itís been a way to keep in touch with the history and hopefully help folks out on occasion.

I was in my low to mid 20's when I got my first detector at a garage sale. A BFO. I'm 61 now.
