Meteorites

September 09, 2020 06:30AM avatar
Seen that show on tv of theses guys finding meteorites. So in 2009 got an MXT. Loaded the dogs up drove out to the desert and gave it a try. After 10 minutes, no meteorites. ( I didn't even know how to use the machine.....prob had them disced out.) Then I looked up and seen the almost 2 million square miles of desert ahead of me and thought that's a lot of area to try and find a little rock. Got home and threw machine in the closet never to be seen again. eventually sold it.

Then in late 2012 or early 2013 got a MXT All pro. Tried around the house and a park. But wasn't sure if I was even setting the machine up correctly. I started to visit some forums. Kept seeing this detector guru guy named Monte on the forums quite a bit. One day I got brave and sent him a PM about Whites Classic machines. Just so happens he was actually going to be in my area for his Portland club outing that they did. I met up with him a few days early and he took me down to the park in Ontario and we went thru the MXT ( showed me how to properly set it up and use it.) He then invited me to join the club outing. So June 13th 2013 was my official first day of detecting. Found a 1907 IH penny that day and was hooked.

As they say the rest is history smiling smiley

Nope, he didn't show interest at all. But he did get into it the summer of 68 briefly. N/T
