Today I went through my gear and mining supplies sorting things out and getting out gear for camping. Spring has arrived. I noticed my metal detector gathering dust in the corner of the shed. Shame on me. It is a great tool and I have neglected it. I have a Fisher Gold Bug - a few years old. Although several very fine new detectors with great add-on features have come on the market since I purchased the unit a few years ago, it is a reliable workhorse that gets the job done.
My Goldbug is going with me. I am by no means an expert but I have had a lot of fun and found a few treasures. Metal detecting is addictive and I was looking forward to once again testing my luck. The price of gold is skyrocketing and I would sure like to find a nice nugget for my efforts.
