Metal Detector FEVER

I've gone through this phase in the past, but boy do I sure have it for metal detecting lately. I've spent a lot of time watching MD videos on YouTube and whatnot. Haha. Here it is the middle of winter and I can't possibly do anything if I wanted to. I actually bought a metal detector off craigslist the other day. He was selling two, the one I really wanted was already sold and in a moment of haste I bought his other one. I'm sure it will work fine to start with, but I plan to upgrade fairly quickly later on. Then, I just couldn't let it go about getting a pin pointer too. So I just ordered one of those from Amazon. Ugh. After this I need to stop spending money on things.

Hopefully by the time the ground thaws out I'll still be interested in this. Har har. I bought some cheap knock-off GoPro mounts too. Head and Chest. That should get me going. I plan to build my own mounts for any other purposes.


I have fanciful and possibly unrealistic visions of living a different life this year. Truly balancing work and life, which I am horrible at. As my van falls into worse condition, the motorhome starts looking better, or at least comparable. So I want to take it on many adventures on my days off. Hopefully when I can get 2 or more days off in a row I'll take it out and spend the days hiking,  kayaking, geocaching, and metal detecting. I want to start seriously doing YouTube videos myself too. RVing/Vandwelling and metal detecting and general outdoor adventures.

So there's that. Now if only I could go metal detecting.
