Because not everything is about the NorthEast USA.
There are other parts of the world out there.

You gotta remember NH-VT-ME are the only place in the US that folks have no accent dont you know.
We also have almost every type of detecting. Ocean, colonial, gold, fields, super rich towns & poor ones,
big cities and endless woods......... All within a few hours. Something for everyone.
My grain of salt has been taken. When it comes out it comes out.

Obviously no one here has checked with their magic 8-ball. Luckily I still have one from the 60's that still works so I just did... it said "more news end of the week" then "delivered by Dec 22nd"
There you go... you're welcome.

No Accent? Please...I was born in Maine, but have never lived there. My parents were from NH and Maine, my father was in the service so we traveled. When he retired he moved back to NH, I finished my last 2 years of high school and almost failed, I had no idea what anyone was saying, after all most of my life was spent in the south, and Germany. When I was visiting my relatives all I could do is agree (I had no idea what they said either).

When I did finally finish high School I joined the Army just so I could be around people I could understand.after the Army I moved to Florida, and now Arizona. I did buy a metal detector while I was there in the mid 70's and cleaned out many parks for you.

What does the future hold?

Actually coherent, I gave the Magic 8 Ball a shake a few weeks ago. Times were desperate. http://www.findmall.com/read.php?107,2408400,2408462#msg-2408462 The future of the Equinox was a little cloudy then. Glad things have 'cleared up' in the last couple weeks. :biggrin:

I am delighted to see that others have held onto their Magic 8 Balls and use them at times like this when a situation arises.

Before your next trip north may I suggest Fritz Weatherbees "Speak New Hampshire" CD. See him on U tube also.
Once I was listening to a radio interview of a Brit scholar. He said the NE speaks almost the same way as colonial times. In fact its closer than
the Brits speak now. SO we are closest to true English......

I was not trying to insult anyone ,so if i did please accept my apologies. My last 2 years of high School were the worst 2 years of my life. Learning Vietnamese , German and Spanish was easier. An yes I spent 2 hours on a trolley trying to pick up a British Girl when I was 16, had no idea what she was saying either.

Didn't insult me, but then again I have no idea what you're talking about or what your comments have to do with this thread...

LOL. No insult taken my friend ! Just putting some yankee humor in between the speculation & waiting.
Waiting for mud season to get mine (if I do) but having fun with the EQ already !

NO RELEASE OF THE EQUINOX 600 OR 800 DETECTORS BEFORE CHRISTIMAS. I just got off the phone talking to Minelab headquarters and they said the detectors will be out next year. I asked them if they knew which season they would be out they said they didn't know. Sounds to me like hopefully by the summer, I hope. Norman MARSH

really? Are you a distributor for them? You claim to have info that not even the dealers have been told. I smell something.

No I am not a dealer for Minelab. I simply called Minelab headquarters and asked them when the Nox would come out and they said next year Don't believe me? Call them yourself and tells us all what you found out.

nmarsh!

Are you trying to tell me that Santa Clause isn't coming this YEAR? ! ! ! :ranting: Perhaps you chatted with one of Santa's 'Angry' Elves that didn't have the 'Christmas Spirit".

To tell you the truth, I am less about gifts and presents at Christmas than getting together and spending time as family. And, if they don't ship until after the new year, I won't feel obligated to rebox the Equinox (after running extensive bench testing on it), wrap it and put it under the tree with my own name on it. :blink:

Jason Enid Ok, as you are a dealer are you going to the conference in early 18? Have you been told you would get 'dealer training' on the EQ at the conference? Does it make sense that dealers would get some training on the machine prior to release? Adding up the questions doesnt it seem logical that the machines may well be shipped 'after' dealer training?

I'm not a dealer (too much time spent at other means of employment) but I keep constant lines of commo with several. So I can get first hand reports of when things are coming.
