Finally in 2022 I'm going to post again... I got so busy during Covid and post Covid that I've been burning the candle at both ends, making great money, working a lot, and playing a little. So here we go! This morning while drinking my coffee I was reminded of something a good friend and … Continue reading Here’s a cool one..
The 2020 stuff I didn’t talk about
Yes, I actually did some stuff in 2020 that was interesting BESIDES work! Most of it involved Arizona, just because I didn't do much else that didn't require planning ahead. I guess I've just become so used to seeing a certain amount of pay each week that I've begun to become a workaholic...perish the thought! … Continue reading The 2020 stuff I didn’t talk about
Up and coming for 2021
I figured I might as well shed some light on what I plan to do this year, and if I manage to keep up with the blog I'll both update those plans, as well as intersperse posts with stuff I've done in the last couple years that I haven't talked about yet. Sounds like a … Continue reading Up and coming for 2021
Yes, I have a blog..sort of
Well, this is that time of year where I suddenly remember I have a blog that I've been ignoring. I've been so busy with new jobs-yes I've changed jobs twice since my last entry, new adventures, and just lots of family related stuff that I haven't really done that much that seemed worth writing about. … Continue reading Yes, I have a blog..sort of
It’s that time of year again…
Today is February 1st. To be positive, it means spring is just around the corner! On a less positive note, winter still has a firm grip, days are still short, we're all still recovering from the holidays, and the first two months of the year it just seems like 'the place' is dead! That's one … Continue reading It’s that time of year again…
Your First Metal Detector – Which One?
I've been asked a lot of questions in my life. Anything from personal secrets to whether or not I had any hidden money anywhere that I had not disclosed - true story; IRS agent, and I said, 'if I had hidden it, why would I tell you?'. Yes, I had legal protection already in place, … Continue reading Your First Metal Detector – Which One?
Is there a treasure hidden in SE Oklahoma?
Treasure? Well, I've looked 3 times and I sure haven't found one! Honestly, I guess the first two times didn't really count because we didn't get to what I would call 'ground zero' to search. Either through lack of preparedness, roads that didn't match the map, or fences where we didn't expect to find any, … Continue reading Is there a treasure hidden in SE Oklahoma?
If you could only have one detector – why I like the Minelab Equinox 800
First off, perish the thought of only having ONE detector! However, for most of us, one detector is all we can afford. I'm lucky in that I've made some really good deals in the last few years that have allowed me to have multiple detectors, but it certainly wasn't always that way! If you're like … Continue reading If you could only have one detector – why I like the Minelab Equinox 800

How Much Water Again? Backpacking for gold p4
Morning came early. I remember waking up and feeling the fog of dehydration. We had all tried to drink as much water as possible, even guzzling what we thought was too much before bed. But I never got up once to pee...so I guess it wasn't really enough! We made our coffee and dehydrated breakfast, … Continue reading How Much Water Again? Backpacking for gold p4
