    May 9th hunt video+ museum visit

    Hi all,
    Got another video out including a slide show of Mel Fischer's museum. Seemed to be half museum and half shrine, but still a lit of fun! Even did the "gold bar lift"! The last photo is a quote that I think are the most true words said about us treasure seekers.

    Thanks Dan! Yes, I'm having a blast- more detecting opportunities than I can probably hit in a lifetime. People I've chatted with were so nice too. One beach actually formed a short line of curious folks, so I ended up doing a Q&A session for about 45 minutes.
    Another possibility I found out about is possibly becoming a subcontractor for the company who holds the water leases and has the recovery permits. That would give me access to dive and detect the wreck sites, and I would get 40% of any finds. ( the company also gets 40%, state gets 20%). Yes, I could see myself retiring down here working the wrecks in season, and working at one of the museum's part time the rest of the year. A much better option than supplementing my retirement income be greeting people and saying "Welcome to Walmart-get your s**t and get out!"
