well sorry theres not much to show for my 4 times out but im slowly getting better finds than the couple of kilos of slaw ive been bringing home, we should be on an hourly rate while we detect lol , i can only imagine how many tons of rubbish us good folk clean up.
has been good fun, met a few people while out and about and not one bad comment from the public, everyone i have spoken to has been very nice so thats a bonus, im sure i will run into some knob eventually but no big deal..... i hope smile.
will keep at it cause im hooked. probably up grade to a better detector cause this was my uncle first one he bought, must be nearly 40 years old i think. i like using it as he passed away and i wonder around thinking of him and smile. IMG_20151226_222246_563_zpsgub8kuwd.jpg

Good onya mate, keep using it, i reckon he's probably siting on your shoulder directing you to the good gold wink

PS it is bloody addictive especially when you get PD's cool

Historical societies are worth a gander, where I'm getting my PD's no one would think to much development has happened, old photo's and imagination goes a long way along with luck, i personally haven't found anything in the shade yet but a silver ring, but that's not to say there wasn't a tree there 120yrs ago cool

Edit: Methodical griding has a lot to say for its self too wink

Those Whites 5 000d's are great big detecta's, and you are certainly showing that you can use one Numpty, well done on the beaut silver score with it,.... you will do well having a start with that as a first machine,.... it will hone your ability in a different way first up,....save the dosh you find to fund the next machine, and by the time you get there you will be an ace hunter already with proximity skills behind you. big_smile wink
