SvenS, those are the kinds of dreams I have ... often.

February 08, 2022 03:21PM avatar
Mainly just dreaming about those good old days when there were good finds aplenty, and when we didn't have so much jargon and chit-chat about detector features and functions. It was mainly just the 'basics' and, you know what, we found a lot! Much more than I could today even if i have all my younger-age health and mobility like back i the '70s.

Occasionally my 'dreams' drift me off from various sites and the targets recovered, to the detectors and coils that worked so well. Then, when I wake up, I not only want to try and locate a virgin site to hunt, but I think about some of those older detectors, then load one or two up (with a 'regular-use' detector or two of today) and head out to spend an hour or two just playing around with those 'dated' models.

I've thinned out a lot of the old stuff I had over the past dozen years or so, but I have some still around (4 working and 1 that needs repair) for memory's sake and also to use in my seminars to demonstrate what we had, how they worked, and what performance we lost along the way as we 'progressed' to this digital age of detector designs.

Do you take your old Garrett out on occasion? If and when you do, good luck! Find something new to dream about.
