Metal detecting has always been a great form of exercise, walking the fields and parks, swinging a sometimes 20lb machine around hunting for treasure, but there are many other great benefits besides exercise that come with metal detecting:
- Great social experiences. most people love to approach metal detectorists when they are in public places like parks and beaches. the hobby can sometimes look strange yet exciting at the same time to onlookers who may be curious about the hobby or if you've had any success on the day, metal detecting is always a great way to meet new people!
- Good family bonding activity! having family members interested in metal detecting? bring them along! kids especially love the thrill of the hunt. Sposes should be encourage to give it a try at least once too, you never know, you could get them hooked too and have a full time partner for your hunts!
- Financial benefits
Mothers Day and metal detecting are two things that usually are not in common. Most of the time we associated Mothers day with spending time with mom at home. Sometimes that can mean cooking breakfast for her in bed, Taking her for to a nice restaurant that she likes or simply showing up with a card and a hug.
Many of us however are lucky enough for out Wife or Mom that likes to detect as much as we do or maybe even more. We have customers all the time call us wanting a machine for their wife because she keeps "borrowing" his. ha ha Metal Detecting is a great way to get outside got some exercise and spend time with each other while digging up the loot!
Happy Mothers Day from Bart at BBH Metal Detectors!
