Treasure Hunting
 
Does anyone here do it?

What type of detector do you have?

Really no one?

I sometimes find money in the parking lot at the convience store when I stop and get a cup of coffee in the morning, sometimes. If you find one, chances are there will be more.:2cents:

And, InspectorD lost a marble one time, but no one found it. ;)

Looks like the outfits that make these thing are the one getting rich.

I've seen a lot of guys do it on the beach, although it may be funny looking, I must admit that I am secretly jealous of what they may be finding!

I saw a found watch once on a site. It was Rolex, but there is no way to confirm it was found.

My thought was who wears a Rolex to the beach?

A few years ago I had the kids out camping at one of the local lakes and guy was there play with a metal dectector in about 3ft of water where the bottom was mud. He said he was looking for his wife engagement ring, she had lost it the year before. An hour later they were showing off the ring.

I found my lost sunglasses once. It was on accident and I was not using a detector.
