  1. I have also noticed, over time, and with very few exceptions, it is usually the same "core group" of folks that will be the ones that post their finds and comments, their adventures, their pictures and their stories to their circle of friends. So I will ask...are new members too busy to post, or not knowing what to say about a post, or is it a fear of not being acknowledged in a constructive way, after they do post or what? I believe that if a forum is to continue to be active, ya got to get folks involved in the topics and feeling like they are or can become a part of the site community.......and that their responses or comments are worth their time to contribute and not something to be "glossed" over and ignored. Then again, the newer members need to post something to get the ball rolling.........

    We sure lived in a different world growing up. A MUCH safer place for sure and we could mine, rock hound and camp just about everywhere. NOW SUCKS....John

    and the saddest thing about it is .........it keeps getting worse everyday.

    Soon, only the very rich or those with a lot of "suck" will be able to enjoy the outdoors.

  3. Just to add my 2-bits......the trend of those lawmakers in the greatly populated Eastern part of this country to make laws for themselves that ultimately screw with those of us in the Western part of this country, is continuing to this day.....not only on the Federal level, but on a State-wide level as well. We STILL seem to be paying for a debt that has been increasing yearly since the 1860's by slowly loosing our rights to log timber, work our claims or even to use the public lands for recreational purposes. All the Mineral Wealth and Natural Resources here in the Western States are slowly but surely coming under some form of Federal Control and the "little guy" is being phased out of existence. It started way back when and hasn't stopped yet...........

  4. IMO, neither one of them will be good gold detectors. But, both are good jewelry and coinshooters with the e-trac having better target ID and more bells and whistles and costing a lot more. I use the SE Pro (kinda right between both of them) and personally, have found everything that users of the e-trac have found at comparable depths. Guess it just depends on what you want from your detector and the area you hunt...all three are good detectors for what they will be used for. See if you can borrow one to use for a while.....that will help you make up your mind. Good Luck........

  5. Agreed garimpo...........too bad that the illegals that are crashing our borders to do us harm and those that are trying to destroy from within, do not realize the beauty of this land that they are ruining. (Starting with Washington, D.C.)

  6. you might want to consider getting a smaller handheld probe that you can wear on your belt to accompany your Explorer......mainly because it will assist you in finding your target WITHOUT digging a plug that you could drop a VW beetle in. Some places (like tot lots) would frown upon large, unsightly plugs that do not blend in well with the surrounding area. Not saying that's what you do, but we have all seen what some new detectorists can do and have done.........not purdy and actions like that screws things up for others. The smaller the plug, the better for all of us.
