Metal detection a relaxed, exciting hobby!
What a metal detector is, hardly needs any explanation. Almost everyone has seen someone on a stand or in a park. Carefree, but concentrated, a viewfinder swings his metal detector back and forth. A small spade dangles in his hand and he has headphones on his head. Suddenly you see him or her standing still and sticking his shovel into the ground. You have an immediate tendency to step out. What would he have found? A treasure??
Searching with a metal detector is far from boring. It is a fantastic hobby and offers surprising possibilities. Plenty of exercise and yet peace and fresh air. With a metal detector you can stroll around in an adventurous way and wait and see which beep the first old coin will produce. Searching for a good search area, you will discover beautiful places in your area that you never even suspected existed.
Walking and waving such a gold ring or maybe a bomb? The hobby unleashes ancient searching and collecting instincts. Sometimes we yearn to get out and about. Looking for freedom, movement, fresh air, tranquility and some carefree adventure. But what are we going to do?
