Everyday I'm Shuffling
In my 2yrs of shuffling (detecting) I've learn lots of things such as where would the items be... shuffle where no one dares, such as muddy areas. Quitting my job to do full time a detectorist is no joke, income would be unstable as sometimes you gets nothing except for coins to survive.[split]
Study the place that you shuffle from back to the old days. I've met all kinds of things such as something swimming in between your leg at night, crab biting your boots, big fish jumping beside you. Worst of all places that you know someone is walking beside you but there's nobody.
As being a full time detectorist you got to do it no matter what comes in between. Shuffling 6days a week and sometimes twice a day 3-8hrs is no joke. luckily my Excalibur II can't talk... Competition is very stiff here and those spying on me would go where I go but I would leave nothing for them cos I got to survive. If they are lucky it's their luck.
my advice, study the tide, current, sand and go to where no one dares. You will make it, M8. here are some of my finds these 2yrs. They called me Lord Of The Rings.
