cant hunt anywhere but my old wore out private property permission. parks closed.. money uncertain job uncertain now possibly exposed second hand by daughter thru stepgrandson and his girlfriend, who are tested awaiting results, quarantined, out of work mandantory. results by friday. it aint a pretty picture here. Georgia budget cuts going to awful. i am working from home best i can, but the court system going to be a nightmare when it opens back up possibly in June, even though i am a lower paying job its going to tank everyone. and dont think a backlog of work will secure a job, it wont. govt simply just lets it go... i am a" mandated job" that thru a stroke of the pen can go away...nothing for sure except death and taxes.

there is no quick fix for this situation. we cant visit the one in the nursing home, which now has its second case, we cant see family. my wife and i are both classified high risk, recent hip replacement, asthma and suppressed immune for her, diabetes (diet controlled no medicine) for me.

money tight so certainly no new toy. nobody buying used much with new stuff like the SimplEx being sooooo good my friend says and economical. nobody wants the old. i hope to obtain one, dump my old MXT 3 coils, maybe my mint Eldorado Umax... use my AT Pro and Silver Sabre MODDED "Zorro" i call it and get a Simplex .

I got bored so i had a Silver Sabre plus modded slightly with a resister change and two caps upped in voltage and put a Mojave Precision 7 a water weighted coil was traded for on it and its a tot lot beast. this old warhorse was used abused and neglected in the roughest terrain cosmetically. i painted the scratched up box black, painted "Zorro" in red on the side like the movie poster and in keeping with a sword theme, and added the coil. getting stir crazy.... but its my go everywhere cruiser and has been for years, before the mods. . i got a tech guy to do the mods and he tested all the caps. its ugly but cleaned inside and works great for what it is. i have pulled a lot of cherry pick targets with it over the years and this boosted it very well, and it seems to love silver. 6-8 deep average soil, deeper in sand actually at my old spot. good in iron trash. like that coil especially.

i see a SimplEX in my future. unless the Apex coming by Garrett is a winner. i prefer Made In America . at least assembled, i know the parts are mostly chinese. i trust the knowledge on this forum. no cheerleaders...i like the guys that dare to call the baby UGLY!!!!!!!!!

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
