Re: Andrew, I am 'kind-of' that way, and used to be that way ... however ....

I totally get it Monte. My dad was the same way when he got older. Most of our trips together were to the local park where uneven ground wasn't an issue. My last metal detecting trip with him was to the beach in Oceanside, CA. His health was really getting bad and he could only stay out a few hours at a time. He was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension years back which makes it more and more difficult to breath as it advances on. But he didn't let it stop him, he continued to do the thing he loved (metal detecting) until the day he died. It wasn't more than a month after that trip to California that he got pneumonia and then had a stroke that took his life. I'm sure I will have to make adjustments to where I hunt as well in the next 15-20 years. By that time I'll be happy finding copper cents instead of zincs.
