Thank you.....Wasn't really hard to keep track of the totals because I log everything I find for Sue and I for each hunt season and keep a running total as we go along.

Hi Ed & Sue,

You have a nice ten year wrap-up. You are more diligent about record keeping than I am, for sure. Gee, that pond behind you in the photo sure looks familiar. Was that taken during an October MTHA hunt?

Thanks Jamflicker......it sure would be nice to last another 10 years but I'd be 85 so I'm not so sure that'll happen

Thanks Jim......I actually had records from 1984-2010 but somehow they got lost. I wish I still had them. You are correct..the photo was taken at Houghton's pond at the October 2018 hunt, the year I won the AT Pro.

Wow, congrats on both 10 years detecting and impressive totals !!!!

Also congrats on having a hunting partner hunting with you all that time !

I also think it's neat that the total number of dimes is more than the pennies as well as the total number of quarters being more than the pennies !

Congratulations on ten years of great detecting. Surprising your dime total is higher than penny. But that is a good thing. Enjoy many more years together.

Thanks Gary.....actually, I've been detecting since 1983 but have no records before 2011. It's great that I was able to get Sue interested in detecting because the hunts are so much more enjoyable when we hunt together. The dimes are higher than pennies nowadays because we both disc out the zincs. Quarters are top dog nowadays but back when I started detecting in the early 80's that wasn't the case....pennies and dimes were more common finds.

The best find in your totals is your wife that spends quality time enjoying a hobby you both love.
