Wanting to get out and about - Melb
« on: February 24, 2017, 11:50 »
Hi everyone,
I've sent off my details to a few groups. I'm a 46 yo guy wanting to get out in search of gold or $1 coins! I got the gold/ silver bug a few years ago and have decided I want to get out and attempt to find something of value. I'm interested in camping, panning for gold, metal-detecting - you name it.
Any advice/ help appreciated.
Cheers,
Rick

Join one of the metal detecting clubs. The two larger Vic clubs have outings most months and individuals go out often. There are PMAV groups as well.
