I grew up working on the land. Started detecting in 1986. I did an apprenticeship as a bookbinder/print finisher in the early 90's and did that for 13 years. During that time I was also in the Royal Australian Army reserves in an artillery battery and worked part time in a dive shop as a dive master. I got married ten years back and moved to the other side of the country. About five years ago I was tired of factory work so at age 37 went to university and did a double major in marine and environmental science. I currently work at the university as a technician in environmental science. I have one son age five who comes for a detect sometimes but complains about all the bottle caps!

I was a telephone man back in the days of the old bell systems ,started right out of high school in 1965,joined the navy ,volunteered for VIET_NAM But instead was sent to the north atlantic hunting submarines off of three aircraft carriers, I had sixty-six take offs and landings from the ESSEX,WASP and INTREPID. Came back home met my wife while out on a dancing date with five young ladies. Got married had one son,Ryan and in 35yrs of service retired as a engineer with LUCENT in 1999. I then gave back to the community by teaching at four elmentary schools for seven years I began detecting with a bounty -hunter in late 50s-early sixties. thanks Wayne in Delaware

Land Surveyor, 18 years; before that was a union carpenter/construction supervisor. I gotta admit, I 'see' a lot of things out there that most don't, and see out of the way places. I'm totally at home researching, and I know where to 'dig' up info.

Member of Mensa; elected public official, 15 years.

Been detecting for 30+ years, I like finding folks lost things the best. Happy faces are awesome!

I like being a dad, and detect with my daughter.

I am 55, a master mechanic and fabricator for a concrete batching facility in Alaska, been here 20 years and have been driving a concrete mixer for 17. So I am NOT in the big city Anchorage so I get sent out to many far off deliveries and I see all kinds of soil, glacier erosions and places that have trace. I have friends with gold claims and we swap ideas and stories. With the price of gold up so high I intend to spend my off time looking in a few good places for nuggets, I know a local jeweler who will buy nuggets no matter what size at good prices. I'm not interested in sluice boxes, dreging or even most panning though that will happen for the fine gold.
Still awaiting for our winter to end, probably won't be until almost june when I can get out, we have had record snowfalls up here and its best to wait until the breakup floods have died down, also better to detect on a couple of riverbanks nearby afterwords.

Been in the Navy as a Corpsman for 19 years. Did one tour in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Thought about stopping at 20 or 24 years but just got accepted to Physician Assistant school so I'm hoping to do 30 and retire with 75% pay. The school's 2.5 years long and very fast paced. Detecting will not be sitting on the back burner but will instead have to be taken completely off the stove for that time so I can focus on my studies. I might get in a day or two of swinging during our breaks though.

Did 4 years in the U.S. Army right out of school, while in the Army in Alaska got into cars/drag racing which I took up more seriously 10 years later. Out of the Army went to work as an autoworker, been doing that for 27 years. While laid off for a while in the 90's I went to school and became a certified electrician, which I did for a while, but now only when I feel like it. After a 10 year absence from drag racing got back into that for 15 years racing a 67 Dodge Dart, and began building and tuning cars for other guys and building carbs for guys. Gave up the driving stuff a few years ago to spend more time with the fam...with no regrets. My long time unrealized hobby desire was metal detecting, which I'm glad to say I'm finally enjoying very much. Lurcked on a number of sites for years, but now I'm "in the family" and loving it. Thats about it. :thumbup:
