    Newbie - Upstate New York - Syracuse Area

    Just joined this forum.
    I started metal detecting about ten years ago with the old Cold War box style machine, I think it was a Whites Coinmaster. My arms got bigger but my pockets didn't.
    About five years after that I was given a Bounty Hunter Land Star.
    I didn't have the time or patience to learn the machine and quickly gave it up and sold the machine.
    About three weeks ago while out garage saling, I happened upon a Teknetics Delta 4000 and purchased it for 45 dollars which seemed like a deal.
    Since that day I have been out every day that the weather has permitted which is just about all of them here in central NY.
    We could use some rain.
    So far:
    70 cents in clad
    1 trailer hitch ball
    3 large metal washers
    1 can of rusted common nails
    1 metal tent stake
    1 sardine can key and lid
    Numerous beaver tails and pull tabs
    4 square nails
    Numerous cans and parts of cans
    and last but not least
    1 blue sports car (hot wheels)

    Looking forward to my next adventure!
