Metal detecting is like...

October 11, 2020 08:12AM
I'm currently taking the time to learn the Equinox 800 and find out just how 'special' it really is. I'm reading and re-reading the manual and experimenting with all the targets I have. I've kept rusted ti, and all kinds of trash both modern and old site related. It's been very exciting to understand a little about what supposed to occure under certain/most conditions and then have it do it! I have been amazed at what it is capable of. More about that later. My time learning the Deus and coil control has been a big help.

I've found myself missing the more familiar platform of the Deus. How comfortable and light it is. How easily I can navigate through the settings and how confident I am with how it will run and act under certain conditions.

So, sometimes metal detecting is like being with a old friend with whom I'm relaxed and certain of. Part of this is hobby is just getting out! And as for me, I don't much like being alone and I certainly don't like to feel like I'm struggling - allowing frustration to set in. Sometimes I just want comfortable. That's why I spend so much of my time with my wife. Now, not everything we do together goes so smoothly and that involves mostly work related tasks. But we do enjoy working together most of the time. So a lot of the time, metal detecting is like being with my best friend. Its almost always good to be together with a fair amount of predictability thrown in but surprises can happen at any time!
Sometimes it feels like work or school and sometimes its just good to get out with an old an beloved friend!
It's time to ring the school bell and have some recess!!
