We seem to have a lot in common - new 233S, both live in NoVA, both have Sequoias for TVs and now metal detecting. I grew up in Mississippi not far from Vicksburg. Did a lot of coin hunting around schools and old housesites, but mostly did relic hunting. Spent many winter weekends combing the nearby bluffs. Most of what my dad, brother and I found was Confederate, not surprisingly. My best find was a nice cast brass CSA buckle, with all 3 hooks still intact. Found it 2" deep in the football field of an elementary school - go figure. Sold it 5 yrs later to buy my first used car. Also have a nice collection of buttons. Have a Whites 6000 Di Pro but haven't swung it much over the last 8 years. Still have all my gear and take it with me whenever vacationing at the beach. With the new TT, figure I now have a new excuse to get back into it.
