Thanks Monte for the warm welcome.

My wife (64y/o) and I (70y/o) live in south central Indiana. I retired in 2019 after 42 years as a chemical engineering associate. My wife is retiring this Dec 1 as the chief operator at the local water treatment facility.

My wife actually was the first to detect. Her work location is in the country between a river and a county road. For lunch every day she would walk the country road for exercise. About 5-6 years ago she got the idea that the strip of land between the road had some old houses, a long gone school bus that was a bait shop and few other areas that had been occupied. She decided she want to detect the land strip instead of just walking the road.

She asked for detector for her birthday. We visited a local dealer and after playing with various models she chose the Tesoro Silver micro Max. She still uses that detector today. She dug a lot of junk but she didn't care. She was getting more exercise than just walking so she has happy.

A couple of months later I bought the same detector. We started out hunting parks, some areas in town and fields. I enjoyed detecting and when I retired in 2019 I sold my Silver micro Max and bought a pristine Tesoro Black Vaquero in my hometown and later added the small concentric coil which I use most of the time.

Those two detectors are what we use today. Over the years we have found lots of clad, a few old coins, a few pieces of jewelry and probably barrels full of pull tabs and old nails. In all honesty, I wish I had kept all the trash. I wonder what a drum full of pull tabs would be worth at the scrap yard.....

The important part is that I got to spend time with my best friend and she will always be my best find.
