Treasure Hunting to Relax

Whenever I am stressed from work, I don’t watch TV nor read a
book. Instead, I look at that dark corner – the place where my
metal detector resides – and emerge into another world. This is
a world full of treasures to be found – where the limit is not
the ground, but many inches underneath.

Many people do not realize this, but metal detection is not only
a great way to do exercise, but it is also fun, relaxing and
rewarding. It is enough for one to “get lost” for a couple of
hours to completely forget about his problems while asking
himself the question, “What will I find next?”

The most common question, I, as a veteran treasure hunter have
to respond is whether treasures can be found in the United
States. The answer is, and will always be: Yes! Treasures are
practically everywhere. During the American Depression, how many
people did not bury their belongings to never come back for
them? During the Civil War, along the way; how many soldiers
buried gold but died in combat? How many people drop valuable
objects every day without realizing it? This does not only apply
to the United States, but also to almost every other country in
the World. Obviously, to know this, you’d have to do research,
but I am quite sure that you will find treasures if you look for
them.

Speaking personally, I do not call metal detecting a hobby, but
rather an obsession. I have been an avid hunter for years – have
hunted in Mexico, the U.S., Norway and many other countries. I
have delved into each country’s history and the reality is that
you can too. There are so many treasures waiting to be found
that all you have to do is purchase a metal detector – read some
safety tips such as the ones available in this great Metal Detecting
Website – and, well, begin your hunt!

I can almost guarantee that you will promptly love to find new
buried objects – objects which have been buried underneath your
feet – objects which may change the way History is known -
objects which may change your life.

Then what could be more rewarding than, after a 3-hour hunt,
count and research about the numerous coins that you just found?
Will you post them on your own personal page? Will you sell
them? Tell people about them?

We return to the beginning – relaxation. If it wasn’t for the
fact that metal detecting can cleanse one’s problems, then it
wouldn’t be half as popular. When you begin finding 300-year old
coins I can guarantee that you will stop thinking about your
quotidian problems and, like me, emerge into a world which has
been lost for years. Welcome to treasure hunting, you will like
it.
