One of the best features we have ever had, from a very good forum member who loves the hobby. ::g KB initially declined to do this feature as he felt it would somehow portray him as someone special, not what he is after at all. We had to torture him a bit b;> and looking at what he has provided, it was well worthwhile!
I enjoyed reading every word as its from someone who represents all thats good about detecting. I am particularly keen to try harder on the ID business now that KB has shown an example! Liam :;@

KB, thanks for the offer of some more detecting later on in the year, determined to find some of those romans that you keep tripping over with your Etrac =)) =)) =))
Lovely day here in Norwich, just back from a course up in Glasgow, knackered from the drive, time to spy out some land for tomorrow, Liam

If you look back over how the regulars on here detect, it will lean towards "low and slow" not so much nattering, knowing your machine, spending the hours on the right bit of researched land and of course ... LUCK, Liam ::g
