First entry for Michigan Man Floyd

Hello everyone!  I’m so glad you could stop by.  This is my site which which I can relate my adventures in metal detecting, fishing, magnet fishing, motorcycle riding, mushroom hunting, and anything else that gets me up and moving and enjoying life and the outdoors.  I’m going to start off with my latest thing I’m very interested in… metal detecting.  I recently jumped head first into the world of metal detecting and got myself a Garrett AT Pro.  It only took a couple of trips out before I decided I really needed a pinpointer to go with it and I ordered the infamous Garrett Carrot, the Garrett ProPointer AT.  I love my metal detector and pinpointer.  I’ve been getting out as much as I can to get used to it and learn it and I think I’m doing pretty well.  I have one area that I’ve been going to that I found out has not been searched at all, ever, by any metal detectorist.  I’ve been using that site to hone my skills and have some fun.  I have less than half the place searched and I’ve probably put in a good 16 hours of searching.  I’m loving every minute of it too.  I’ve found a lot of trash, a LOT of coins, and 1 gold ring!  The ring was pretty small.  It was a thin band and only 10K.  You have to wonder with something like that, was it the property of some overindulged teen that didn’t give a care about it, or was it all some lucky lady could afford for a wedding band.  Was it nothing to the owner, or did it mean the world to them.  Metal detecting is about more than just finding a few coins and things.  It’s about trying to connect with the past and wondering what your found items meant to someone.  What was the history of that item and where has it been?  How long has it been down in the dirt, hidden from the world?

Anyway, that’s it for today.  It’s my bedtime, and I just wanted to get something posted as a start to my blogging world.  Peace, out!
