I’m 39 my name is Cody and my son and I have been detecting

for about 2 years. My son is now 5. We love watching your shows.

We and I have found some great stuff. My son Calls it treasure

for me, but if I “we” find any toys. That is treasure for him.

We Have found about a dozen toys. But any way, if you all are

every in the Dayton Ohio area and just for fun. I would love to

metal detect with to two Greatest detectors EVERY.

“NO TV time, that’s your alls job”. I don’t know what my son

would do, but I know it would be so Cool to pull juice out of the

ground with you all.. I have a whites coin master. I love finding

coins. I also have found all kinds of stuff, but the coins are

what I like the most.

Nice show, you need to teach people how to do this the right way, how to step down on the plug that you dig , so it wont die or come up when a lawn mower hits
