I retired from the Air Force in Jan 1990 and after that worked for a number of telecommunications companies; GTE, MCI, Cable & Wireless and XO Communications. I retired from my last job with Verizon in Sep 2017. In December 2018, I sold my house and my car and moved into an RV. I've always liked metal detecting and seeing as I can go anywhere now, I am really looking forward to getting my boots dusty in the Arizona desert finding the 2 kilo nuggets. My wife passed in 2013 and one puppy in Nov 2018 and my last remaining puppy passed in Jul 2019. So, it's only me and my metal detectors.
