    Looking good!  That's a lot of digging.  I bet you were sore at first!

      Hey Guitarman – Mark and I have both used the Explorers so if you want some hints just post your questions. I jumped from the XS to the SE but they are pretty much alike.

    congrats Tink, always great getting out and getting some fresh air.  Never used the Safari, Explorer 2, XS or SE.  Still use the original Explorer and it is still my go to machine when I get serious about looking for old silver.  Everyone have a safe and happy new yr.

      Hey Ian – Good to hear from you. Hope things are looking up for you. been a little slow around the site and now I am froze in so won't be hunting either. Nice today but calls for a major snow storm in a short while.    beach was slow this year, then in the middle of our trip, happenings at home caused us to make a trip back. We went back to the beach but the extra travel bothered my back so my detecting was cut short. This old age isn't what it should be.  🙁
