Hey John-Edmonton - small world - I've had both hips replaced. first one at age 47, the other at 49. Retired as of 9/1/12 after more than 35 years in computers with the State of CT Office of the Comptroller. Mainframe operator, senior operator, operations supervisor, application security officer, the last 7 years as a technical analyst for PC's & networking issues. Loved my work and the people I worked with. Three major abdominal surgeries since July 2012 factored into my retirement decision. Started detecting July 1986 with a Whites 6000 Di Pro. I'm healthy now "on the mend" and looking forward to detecting adventures with my friends & step son.

Entrepreneur here...I decided to do what I love. Opened a dog boarding kennel called The Pet Ranch in Olathe, KS and then a metal detecting and prospecting supply shop in Overland Park, KS called High Plains Prospectors. Got a YouTube Channel and a blog. Selling pet products and metal detectors online. A bit of consulting here and there. My goal is to "cash-in on my passion" with whatever I do. Find something you love and figure out a way to make money at it. Puppies and prospecting. What else could a guy want?!?!? :) Feel free to check out our website at www.highplainsprospectors.com

I will try to help anyone out with any questions and contribute to the forum! Glad to be here.

Hi Gang, I've been following this web site for a few years and decided I'd join up (One doesn't want to rush into these things, ha.).
I have a wide variety of interests. I am recently retired this year and I have been a soldier, lumberjack, mainframe-computer technician, avionics technician and certified counselor with a focus on community counseling with a special interest in end-of-life issues. Whew!

I have a general interest in all things metal detecting, but focus on coin shooting, gold-nugget hunting, and beach hunting when I can get to a lake or ocean. I have a Garrett Sea Hunter II that I press into all-around duty. I am a ham radio operator as well and I like to combine both activities if I can.

Finally, I also promote home defense ensured by superior firepower.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi to all, especially those who have an intractable case of gold fever like I do! Good luck to all you folks. ~HR

I didnt know thta 9 civil war genrals came from this town and thats pretty cool. Anyway iam not sure what iam doing but i hope i can figure it out . Iam also looking to meet a few people and iam going to try to get to Kty. or Tenn. and go look for some civil war stuff. So if any of you guys want to drag me along for a day or 2 that would be fun. I guess thats all i have to say i get a little windy when i get the chance you know talk to much lol. So good luck .

First jobs included driving farm equipment during harvest and roller skating carhop at Sonic Drive In. Played music for 20 years which led me to computers. Been a Network Administrator for the local hospital for going on 20 years now.



The real treasure is in the hunt...

I'm new to this, always wanted to do it... Today was my first day with my Garrett ACE 250. I found .16 (cents) and a metal caster wheel.. hahaha
I was a US Navy Hospital Corpsman for 4 years.
Then a cop in the Detroit area for 16 years
Then moved to Texas and opened a quick print shop for 7 years
Then managed a Scuba store and taught Scuba
Then went to Continental Airlines as a International Flight planner, for 23 years.
When United did a hostile takeover of Continental and moved to Chicago, I retired... I had enough of the cold and crime in Detroit.
About 11 years ago, I was diagnosed with Mutiple Sclerosis and I have COPD from smoking all these years (of course)
But, it wasn't too bad today. Getting up and down is a bit of a problem, but I think I can continue it.
Besides this, I like to fish and I take motorcycle trips on my Goldwing. (20,000 miles/20 states so far)

I'm brand new to this intriguing hobby (so new that my Ace 350 hasn't even been delivered yet). I am retired after 33 years in law enforcement (retired police chief). I now write travel columns and ride motorcycles. I figured that the three hobbies would go well together. Touring on the M/C, then writing about the places I visit, and metal detecting while there. Not looking to make a killing or get rich just looking to have fun and add a new hobby to the ones I already have. Ha Ha Ha.

12 years working as Manager of a large municipal wastewater treatment facility in Ct. Before that, operations manager for a private rubbish hauling company and front load driver for 15 years. Married for 15 years to my beautiful wife and have a 3 year old daughter that wants to metal detect with dad and drive race cars as soon as she can! Life's great! I have wanted to MD since I was a kid, but just ordered my first unit, a Garrett AT Pro last week. Looking forward to getting out as soon as the snow melts and putting all the great advice I've been given from all the kind people here on this forum to use. I hope to meet some of you soon! Good luck detecting to all!

Hi John! I owned a small trucking company with trucks leased to a company contracted to Caterpillar, so I've delivered Cat parts to Finning there on 170th many times. Love your city. Miss seeing the folks at the West Edmonton Truck Stop on 118th. Good hunting! Roger
