Not interested in the least. She doesn't ever ask me about what I found. She thinks the whole thing is stupid.

Yup, I'm a lucky guy that she enjoys the hobby as much as I do. She uses an AT Pro for city parks and a White's GMT for gold prospecting.

My wife only hunts the competition hunts, which she likes very much. All the other types of detecting she doesn't care for. She lets me pursue my hobbies and trusts that I won't go overboard. That's why I only have 8 or 10 detectors at a time.

My other half has no interest what so ever in detecting,she finds it rather boring,she has never complained or objected,she just lets me get on with it,after all these years she would think that something must be seriously wrong with me if i did not go out tecting.



Deus and Nexus MP main everyday detectors

Displays on a Detector are really the equivalent of relying on sub-titles,give me a Analogue machine anyday.

Some of my site specific use machines.

Fisher TW-5 twin box
Crossbow PI 14x9 Mono

She went out 1 time...

I popped a plug and she saw a worm.... She was moving backward so fast her feet went out from under her.
She was content to just seize any jewelry I brought home-especially gold.

My wife thinks my hobby is great. She does think I look like a "nerd" in my detecting get up(knee pads, headphones, and work belt) She does not call me a nerd when she claims the occasional gold jewelery that I find. She has never joined me on a detecting venture in my twenty years of detecting and I sort of like the solitude.

Tolerates it most times... but doesn't like my daily date with low tide during shore vacations... she has no real interest in hobby but does like the occasional cool piece of jewelry. ..

My wife is the best hunting pard I've ever had!:smile:-----She's as crazy about detecting as I am--maybe more so.

Everytime I come home with 5 or 6 dirty old coins that are worth less than a dollar she just grins and says, as long as your having fun I guess it's worth it. At that point I'm totally worn out, my back is aching and I'm dirty from head to toe and I say I love this hobby. Then she just shakes her head.
