Thumbs up Ken's Philippines vacation

Well. we now have an idea of some of the food you'll be having when you get back home

and of course the best part is simply getting back home !
I think Ken would of had a entirely diffrent experience if his wife hadn't made the trip all about her and returning to their home there . If Ken had got the chance to get out and explore more the Philippines , may be do some island hopping ,spend some time on tourist beaches with his detector , see more of the historic sites etc. I have made a number of trips over there to the middle of the Philippines mainly Bohol where my wife has a family home ,and Cebu not nearly as many trips as Ken who has his home in the northern part of the islands. I have seen new thing every trip and looking forward to seeing a lot more. Hopefully Ken will have a lot better trip next winter if he goes back this year.

GOOD toilet paper

Just being back home.

After living over here for the past 17 years, You just find out how lucky we are in America...

Here you just can not trust ANYONE. Not a good Idea to go out your front door at night. You could get shot.
You do not have any friends to talk to. Not one..
This big house is like a prison..
Can not wait to get home..

KEN
Looks like Ken was not kidding !!!!!

After being deprived of all of his American comforts and comfort foods I am sure Ken will waste no time ,when he gets back home. Of course he will have to trade his t-shirts and shorts for a heavy coat and snow shovel. At least there won't be any skitters here for awhile , that made him sick as a dog there with dingus fever. After being over there for so long I am sure has a long list of things he misses from home. Just to bad Ken couldn't have found a few old Spanish gold coins or buried Japanese treasure to pay for his trip . There has to be lots of World War II stuff buried all over the islands, that could be sold on E-bay.

I imagine at some point or the other this yard has been searched , a older couples lives there now , and a hiking trail runs behind it. Our daughter , her husband and our grand daughter will be living there in Gainesville while she is taking nursing school for around two years. Since my name will be on the title I figure I can detect any time I want. I will also have a good excuse to travel from Missouri to Florida and get in on some of the beach hunting there. Will be looking into places in that area to detect if any one know it very well.

Surprised Scuba isn't waiting out winter in Florida looking for Spanish gold and silver. He could probably find enough to pay for his whole stay till the waters warm back up at his home.

I think it would be a good idea if David bought a place buy the beach with extra bedrooms. So we could come and visit and go tetecting.
Yep,, good idea...

Now that would be living the dream , and having the extra room to invite my friends on here, to visit and hunt together on the beach would be a blast. I can't think of a better group of people that I would love to spend the day with. The place we are getting our daughter there for schooling is a least 1 hour from either coast . Just checked the city parks rules no metal detecting in the city parks haven't checked county parks out yet. Still need to research the area as well to find out local history. Except some beach detecting in the Philippines ,beach detecting here will be new for me looking forward to trying that out. Has to be very diffrent than dirt detecting here in Missouri.

Hey, maybe Dave could buy a motel or a "bed and breakfast" next to the beach there and focus on catering to detectorists, maybe call it something like "Clad Resort" or "Detect and Snooze" or "Treasure Hunter Haven" or "Minelab Motel" (of course FMDF members would get a good discounted rate )
