Re: new detector and first finds
- Sam, sounds like that new White's detector has got you fired up.
Now, if we could just get some more rain to help soften up the
ground a little. As for your braggin on Wayne's Detector Sales; I
concur. I've bought two detectors from Wayne over the years. I
still stop in occasionally to swap treasure hunting stories. Keep
us informed on what you find with your new Prizm 3. Good Luck.
