The Metal Detecting Hobby Is the Best Hobby; Here's Why

The metal detecting hobby is the best hobby around, here’s why. The cost of a good, beginner’s metal detector is approximately $250.

With the price of gold and silver skyrocketing to all time highs, you can find enough coins that will eventually pay for the cost of your detector.

Every day, detectorists are finding gold and silver rings.

And I know individuals around the country who have located buried caches large and small. Some worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. With the right kind of research, you could be the one who locates a buried treasure as well.


The Metal Detecting Hobby Offers So Much

But I don’t want to fill your head with visions of locating a lost treasure worth a fortune. Although it does happen, the likelihood of finding one without doing the proper research, is slim.

Instead, I’d like to explain the everyday benefits, and the real reason why metal detecting is the best hobby.

The benefit of exercise while metal detecting is often overlooked.

The need to be constantly walking, and bending down to dig holes has a positive effect on your body. You burn calories, get a cardio workout, and you are toning your stomach all at the same time.

If you are interested in searching for the old eastern ghost towns, the metal detecting hobby can bring you a great adventure as an added benefit. Walking, or hiking great distances through sometimes rough terrain in order to locate the old settlements is great exercise.

And the hobby can also lead you to travel to places where you had never imagined you would be going to.

I know people who vacation in resort areas around the world so they can metal detect along the beaches.

Many people visit historical cities and towns with the purpose to metal detect those areas.

However, always pay attention to the laws that have to do with the hobby.

You can visit this page for more information about those laws.

From Metal Detecting To A TV Series

When I began this exciting hobby many years ago, I had no idea that it would eventually lead me to become the producer and host of my own TV series.

From the success of that show, I started this website, and had opportunities for adventures that I had never dreamed of. I’m not saying that you’ll end up with your own TV series as well…but if you give metal detecting a try, you never know where it may lead you.
