My name’s Rusty and I love metal detecting. I remember growing up with movies like Goonies, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Romancing the Stone as a child. These films coupled with spending a lot of time outdoors instilled a sense of adventure in me that’s followed me into adulthood. There’s just something about finding old lost items that has an addictive nature to it and I’ll admit, I am addicted.
Metal detecting also gives me an excuse to research old maps and go treasure hunting without people thinking I’m too crazy =) Like any hobby it takes knowledge, patience and practice to master but it’s definitely worth it. Here’s a pic of some of my better finds from a year’s worth of detecting:
This site is dedicated to all things metal detecting. Feel free to browse around and hopefully you’ll find some entertaining and useful information that will help you in your adventures. Good Luck and Happy Hunting!
