New to the forum, just purchased a Garrett 300i and looking to get out ASAP.
Tried for a few permissions but no joy yet!
Are there any digs this weekend I could possibly come along to? Happy to drive just desperate to get out there!!

Thanks for the welcome.
I’m happy to knock on farmers doors etc, unfortunately they are in short demand where I am.
I have managed to speak to a couple, however they are tenants with landlords who do not want anyone on there land. One farmer even tried to help me find land, but no joy yet.
May have to attend a dig or 2, just ideally wanted something closer so I can go after work etc.

Most of the group digs are regularly notified in Metal Detecting groups on Facebook ...
It does mean having a good look around on there to find something suitable and there is no guarantee you will find one local to you ... But it may be worth you having a look.
Have you tried looking for a club to join?

Thanks for the info, I have managed to find a couple of digs this weekend so need to ensure I get my ncmd membership sorted prior to this.
Hope to cross paths at a dig in the near future.

Managed to get out a couple of times (on organised digs) which I’ve found a nice button and a few bits of trash, but it takes time get proficient.
Still looking for that first elusive permission but I’m sure it will come.
Just wondered if anyone local ish to Staines fancies a drive to a dig together or to help me learn the ropes, if a fellow newbie we can learn together.
Will keep trying and hopefully get some permissions soon.
I used to but recently sold it But will get one again soon, also a beetle man as well.
