Thanks

You can pin me to Fresno CA. Looks like nearest compadre is in Visalia CA. Once we get past this COVID 19 silliness, perhaps we can share some hunts.

Thank you for your work. It seems like it would be a lot of work.

Got you added Keith, and thank you for participating! Nah, itís pretty easy to maintain the map now - the time consuming part was the initial set up and transfer of the old data that was still left on the old map provider. But the Maphub service is pretty user friendly and easy....and free!

I don't see myself listed active or inactive, so feel free to add me. I'm here in Bedford, Indiana and broadcast it in my profile just in case.

Strange to see no one else listed nearby as I know of at least two locals that do (but good luck talking to them, they run for their trucks if anyone approaches), and a few others in nearby cities. I figured there was bound to be a couple friendly souls left in my area that I haven't crossed paths with at city parks/tot lots/schools/or such - I guess time will tell.

Got you added TCJr, thanks!

Yep, detectorists tend to be pretty solitary in general, I think. Even the Friendly Forum member numbers bear that out - over 53,000 members listed, but only 174 participate in the map! Lots of those members are inactive, but there are also plenty who arenít interested in joining up with others, find other ways to meet hunting partners, or donít even know the map exists - heck, some flat out donít like the idea of map, which is fine, too!

Hopefully it helps you out to find someone to hunt with. I think the map can be particularly helpful to more easily find a member who is willing to join up for a hunt when visiting or travel through an area thatís new to you.

Alright many thanks!

Wow, 174 from 53,000 only gives a 0.33% and according to my spreadsheet log is almost my percentage of silver coins versus clad finds. Well at least it's hope, much like thinking I'll find more silver next time out.

I didn't know this map existed either until I discovered the locked thread about finding hunting partners that didn't pan out. Had that happen myself actually, between distance and free time I guess people loose interest (or retreat back to their solitary ways).

Thumbs up Member's map?

Is it as simple as asking to be added to the map. If so...I'm politely asking. What is required of me besides my location (city/state)? Waxahachie, TX.

By the way, where is the map and how does one access it? TIA!!

Yep, thatís all there is to it - got you placed! Itís entirely up to you, but you can let me know what type of hunting you enjoy (relic, coin shooting, beach, park, group/organized hunts, etc), the equipment you use, or any other details you'd like to add to your marker. Or just leave it as as - the choice is yours!

The first post on the first page of this thread has the link to the map and all the details about it. You can also click here to get to the map: FMDF Member Map

Airmet Tango;

Thanks for the prompt reply. FYI, I am a coin shooter (dry land) and primarily chase silver (deep signals). Thanks again!
