Well I certainly can't say I've been everywhere and done everything when it comes to hunting for gold or treasure. I started out in 2003 about as wet behind the ears as you can get! As a city boy born and raised in Chicago then transplanted to the Gulf Coast of Florida I had a lot to learn just to stay alive while "looking for stuff". First a few trips to the Fort Meyers Beaches looking for "stuff" that continually washes up on Florida Beaches. Then on to the gold-rush streams of Delonega Georgia to see what they had to offer. South Carolina, Louisiana, Arizona, sooner or later I ended up looking for "stuff" in all those states. To me treasure hunting includes everything from panning for gold to recovering fossilized sharks teeth to hunting high and low for lost gold mines. I've heard a lot of people state that it's the "experience" of it all that makes it worth while, not the "find". My answer to them is simply this: "Tell me that again once you've made a significant find!"
Alas, not every moment of every day is taken up searching for things that need to be found. My second love is wandering out to my little wood working shop and making toys. What a great way to spend the day!
