GeoW, I'm still trying to find a good "climbing tool" to

replace my cane. My terrible back is what caused the doctor to prescribe me a cane in March of '93, and my Mobility has continued to decline ever since then, especially the last 5 to 10 years. Addding to the frustrations of trying to get around is a bad left knee that they wanted to replace in 2014 but the diabetes is way out-of-wack. And the numbness in both feet and legs as well as my hands all add up to making my getty-up struggles comical to watch for onlookers.

But you can trust that I'm doing everything I can to get out detecting regardless is how short my hunt time is. I've been looking for a very lightweight Spade that is close to the length of my cane but can work okay for some maneuvering. The search continues.

I can no longer take the S. Georgia heat but I can get about OK, swing the coil OK, get down to recover a target OK, but getting back up. I need to come up with a device to help me back on my feet, hips are shot.

I once teased a friend about climbing his shovel back up after a recovery but that's not a joke anymore now that it's me.

Keep after it Monte!
