    Hello everyone,
    Don't have a detector yet but have owned several previously. I'm in the process of pulling the trigger on a Nox 600 but have plenty of time yet. First, we still have a good 2 plus ft. of snow on the ground here and second, I broke my leg a couple of weeks ago. Have a bit of property and there was an old homstead on it at one time. The house and barns burned. Remnant of an old log cabin are here though and it had been used for a chicken coop. down a small hill from it in a low area of the woods is an old rock cistern 5x8x5. Planning on digging a bit of it out. So plenty for me to swing for and get used to the machine. Thanks for adding me to the forum!

    Hiya, Rich! I swing the Equinox, and having an over-all positive experience with it. How did you beak your leg? Nice country up there, I hope you find lots of goodies and welcome to the group!

    Thank you for the welcome! Was out by my garage and it had snowed on top of some ice. Slipped and my leg went completely behind me and I fell back on it. This is my second time with this leg. Broke it 10 years ago when a 850lb garage door broke loose and came down on it. In the mean time I'm enjoying seeing what all of you are finding.

    Hello and welcome to the forum Rich , there is a lot of great history in the Great lakes areas . I hear good things about the nox machines and I hope you do well with it although I won't tell you to "break a leg" .
