Day #16.. Worked some dirt & #17.. Medical & Instruction.

July 17, 2019 11:13PM avatar
There was a little left over dirt to work where the city town finished some in-street work, and I used the Tesoro Bandido II µMAX as it was a small area available. Only 5 coins: 2-Pennies, 1-Dime and 2-Quarters, but none very exciting. Today, #17, I had some ultra-sounds done then a consultation with a doctor about my kidneys as well as the blood clots I now have in my right leg. A long day, hot again, and a long drive home and a little worn out.

I took time to reassemble my two FORS CoRe and FORS Relic devices with the customized rods my oldest son did for me. Now Monte Jr. got them shorter so they can better fit a shorter person. I used to stand 6' but my bad back has me hunkered over a bit and I have two friends who came naturally shorter than me. At their natural shortest rod adjustment they were just right for me, but still too long for them to have a comfortable fit and balance for shorter stature folks.. I'm sure they will want their units shortened up when they see and feel mine, and, for me, I can now shorten them up to better fit on my back seat, or for a friend they will easier fit his zippered detector bag.

Then, since it stayed clear, sunny and warm this evening, I worked with a friend who had a couple of detectors he just acquired that he didn't understand ... mainly because they worked "differently" and he's new to this great hobby. Besides, I was tired from the day and it let me relax with him on my deck with some demonstrations in the yard. So, nothing to show for the day, but it looks like I'll get two or three days to start early when it's comfortable, and I'll be taking the XP ORX w/5X9½ DD and Teknetics Omega 8000 w/7" Concentric for the next week or so.
