    I've traveled a long way, and many of the roads weren't paved.

    Welcome sfox54!

    I've also been digging LOTS of holes and LOTS of scrap in the short few months I've been detecting. >:{ But something tells me you, too, have found that recessive gene that makes us guys (and some awesome gals) enjoy playing in the dirt!

    Can we call you Charley Rich? (a.k.a. The 'Silver Fox') <}
