Chuck has more adventures with the kids!
This weekend, I took some left over money from Christmas and headed back out to Debbie's Rc World in Chesapeake. It had been in my mind for a while to get a Metal Detector to go treasure hunting with the kids.
I called a few friends and did some research and found that this metal detector rated as good as some 700-1000 units on the market. Good thing...it only cost 212.00 and I had 250.00 left over from Christmas.
I called out to Eric at Debbies RC and he said they had one
Anyway, it can "see" down (in one case we had) to 2 feet...and has a nifty screen that tells you if its Jewelry, Coins, Relics, and even a pull-tab from an old soda can so you can decide to dig or not.
I loaded up the kids and we struck out in search of treasure. I pre-loaded a few coins on the patch of beach we chose knowing we would need to 'hit soon' to keep the kids interested. We did great....a bunch of old quarters, pennies, dimes, and part of a keychain. They were STOKED!!! We will be going again soon!
Af course, sometimes, all you hit is an old can...but still...its the fun!
Later we went kite flying at Mt. Trashmore with Theresa's new Osprey Kite she got for Christmas....a good weekend. A VERY good weekend!
