Inspirational Story With Metal Detecting Mention

We found a wonderful article that talks about not just someone finding things in the ground while metal detecting, but the focus and appreciation of God’s beauty,  as well as finding joy in everyday things. For me, I understand that just getting out with my metal detector and trying, even if I don’t expect to find anything, makes me feel good. For me and for others, you realize that being out among nature and with good company, can lead us to becoming more thankful for what we have.

Share Your Funny Metal Detecting Story

Do you have a funny metal detecting story to share?

We want to hear about it!

Personally, I think the funniest thing I have to tell,  is just thinking I’ve found something awesome, only to discover things such as pull tabs, trash, etc. You get all excited and then bam! Nothing yet. Ha ha, but I know that has happened to so many detectorists. It’s the fun and the thrill of the hunt that keeps us going.
