it's about time i forced myself out to remove some of the guts that i have collected while being not too great in the health department not to mention the virus problems.

i am going to try and start to go back to all the local places i have been (within about 2kms from me).

most times i detected in discrimination mode but now i think i might do it in all metal mode, im sure i'm going to dig a lot of crap but maybe i might find a gem.

more i can dig the better even if it is rubbish smile .

i have only been out around half a dozen times since i last posted here argh awful

aint nothing wrong with those 5000D's, Dad had one back in the late 70's and pulled a lovely 22oz nugget amongst many others over the ounce using it. First day out with it Dad and I paid for it with gold finds! Arh those were the days

i have had a ball with this detector, i think that's why i didn't buy a new one.

there's going to be a lot of digging in all metal mode, i need to lose a few kg's awful so should suit me just fine tongue

i wish it was still the 70's, you must of been very happy with it back then! thumbsup gold-nugget

the only nuggets this has touched since i have had it is a few dry dog nuggets that i moved with the coil, not the fresh one's though lol

I found loads of coins in the Sydney parks and beaches in the late 80's with a 6000D series 3. Awesome machines for their time.
