There are many places that you can use your metal detector, and there are a lot of places that you can not. However, one place that you can is the beach. Whenever you use your metal detector for beach detecting, you are bound to find something great. This is because people lose stuff all the time in the sand. You are going to find everything from coins, rings, and many other metal objects. You never know what you will walk away with when you go beach detecting, and that is why it’s my favorite place to use my metal detector. I am sure that it is going to be your favorite spot as well.
When you first get your metal detector, the first place you are more than likely going to use it is in your own yard. It’s neat to find things that you may have lost, or maybe things you never even knew were there. However, there is only so much searching you can do in your own yard, so where do you go next? Well, one of the most common places to go metal detecting is on a beach. You see people do it all the time, and this is for many reasons. The main reason is because metal detecting is allowed on most beaches.
There are many places that do not allow metal detecting, and because of that, it’s sometimes hard to find a place other than your yard to search in. However, on the beach is perfectly fine, and you are going to find lots of great things. People lose all kinds of stuff on the beach in the sand. These things are invisible to the naked eye, because they are covered in sand. However, with a metal detector you will be able to find them.
Whenever you are thinking about going metal detecting on the beach, there are a few things that you should aways bring with you. First of all, you are going to want to bring something small to dig with. After all, most of the things you are going to find are going to be under the sand, and you are going to have to dig for it, however, that is half the fun of metal detecting. The good news is that it’s easier to dig in the sand and find things than it is to dig in normal dirt. Next you are going to want to make sure you have something to carry all the stuff in that you find. Nothing would be worse than finding a whole lot of stuff and not having any way to carry it. Always assume that you are going to hit the mother load. Last but not least, be sure to have something to drink with you. I can not stress this enough. Sometimes you can lose track of how long you have been out in the sun metal detecting, and it’s easy to get dehydrated when you are out in the sun.
Detecting on the beach is one of the best places you could possibly search for little treasures. First of all, you have a good shot at finding a lot of great stuff. Second of all, it is allowed on most beaches, and third of all, you are going to be able to get a tan while you are out looking. No other hobby combines you and the outdoors quite like metal detecting. So what are you waiting for? Go out and get yourself a metal detector right away. You are going to have a blast with it, and be sure to bring it with you next time you go to the beach.
