I'm 78 and have been detecting for over forty years, I should say until last year because my car broke down and i don;t have any way to go anywhere, I used to walk to a nearby park (about two miles) but now after carrying my detector and all I am to tired to detect knowing that I still will have to walk back. I used to detect everyday and I think that is what kept me going. I know that since I haven't been detecting my health has went down a lot. I hope that i can get back into detecting again soon. I have too many detectors to quit entirely. My large jar that is usually over flowing with coins had been sitting empty for to long.
