Hi all
Hello! I am kinda new at this but Here goes....
I started working for my grandfather, as a big truck mechanic in 1970, I did all maintenance, rebuilt engines & transmissions, I was a truck mechanic most of my life, the last place I worked, I was there 25 years, before I lost my job because of cutbacks, in 2006, after that I got total disability, because of a bad back and carpal tunnel in both wrists & sleep apnea, since then, I have had my lower back fused, left knee replaced (total), and probably this fall I will have to have the other knee done.

My hobbies are working on my family tree, I have the Friedman (nn) side of my back to 1550 in Baden Baden Germany, (Catholic), My 3rd Great-grandfather brought my side of the family to the US and to Stark Co, Ohio in 1832. also I in-joy camping and started in metal detecting Christmas of 2014 and I am still building my supply of equipment.

I have an Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector, a Garrett Pin Pointer, two Garrett Camo Canvas Recovery Bags and a Garrett Treasure Pouch and a
Whetstone Cutlery Full Tang 25 " machete to cut through tall brush.

I am on Ancestry.com I have almost 7,000 people in my famly tree, and Findagrave.com as Dennis Friedman, if you think you might be related, I would like to hear from you.



Thank you Dennisjf12

I've worked as an artist for a lot of years. From painting animation cels to book covers , commercial murals and a bunch of years painting custom artwork on motorcycles, guitars, etc. Right when the great recession hit, I merged into screenprinting clothing and still doing design/artwork.
Teaching myself mandolin. Married for almost 34yrs . We have 2 special needs pups and our 16yr kitty.
I'm really new to detecting and am hooked!

I have worked for people like this before if you have the skills to do the job of 5 guys the employer loves to save money by putting you through the wringer !!! Years ago I worked as a Electronics Field service tech traveling to every state in the union and Europe , south America , the Orient but they were working me to death and when I quit, the company had to hire 3 technician to replace me and that was in 87 it is worse now !!!!

I'm a RN, did 15 years Med Surge, now Psych Charge nurse, work at night. Used to listening to ALL kinds of signals, verbal and non-verbal. Beach hunting and dirt fishing is a real stress reliever for me. Happy Hunting and may you always return home with nothing broken, nothing missing and all's well in your world.

Well my high school class trip was with the Marine Corps as a Corpsman in Viet Nam. I made the mistake 11 days after discharge of stopping in at a local manufacturer of pet toys and treats and applied for a job, a couple days later I went to work. Started out as a lowlife laborer and to many years later with added education, ended as plant manager, told him I would have his job someday during interview. Anyway I retired at 55 and have tried to be a treasurer hunter/dirt fisherman with little success.
