G’day from Albany WA
« on: April 11, 2018, 23:51 »
Hi all. Look forward to getting to know you all. This is my first forum so still working out whats going on. I’m from Albany WA. Only have a couple of friends down here who detect. Don’t know of anyone else yet. Been detecting for a couple of years now but really got going last year when I finally got my first private permission. Was really stoked. Started off with the Garret AT Pro and just got the XP Deus as my wife is getting into it as well which is great. I enjoy it even more now sharing the excitement of finding relics, coins ect with her. I’ll put some finds up later once I get use to the forum.  Anyway if there’s anything I’ve missed just let me know as still getting use to this cheers 😁

Welcome fellow Sandgroper!

I've got some friends down your way that have some OLD pioneer homestead ruins on their properties, trying to find time to make it down for a visit.

You've got plenty of military history down your way too, should be some good finds to be had.

Hi all. ..... Started off with the Garret AT Pro and just got the XP Deus as my wife is getting into it as well which is great. I enjoy it even more now sharing the excitement of finding relics, coins ect with her. .......cheers 😁
Nice to have you on the forum D Morton...welcome!
....not all are as lucky as yourself...I look forward to reading about more of your hunts,...but be warned......she who swings the coil often outdoes he who covers the same ground!....Have fun with the Deus, and don't be too surprised when your wife consistently makes more / better  finds........ ;)  (I speak from personal experience) ;D

Welcome to the forum Dustyn. If you check the headers and childboard you will find a FAQ section somewhere. The owner of this forum is the Deus importer so he will be glad to see some finds from another user here.

That sounds cool sneaky. I only know one family with history on there place and thats the one i was lucky enough to be given permission. Very nice family. Yeah there is a lot of militairy history here but still haven’t tried for permissions yet as most likly would say no. Will do later this year though. If you never ask you’ll never know i guess.

Very true ohb1. My wife is a very quick learner. Even if she finds more then me I’ll still be happy as I like to share in the excitement as much as finding things myself. Sounds corny but true 😁

I think if you go into your profile settings you can change what appears. If it doesn’t change it might be easier just to start a new account before you get to many posts up.
