About Me: I have been a Treasure Hunter for more than 30 Years!

I have been detecting since 1983, I starting with a Radio Shack microna 2001 after losing my high school ring at El Toro air base in California. I never found my ring but have made many wonderful discoveries since. I was hooked after only the first week, finding my first walking liberty half dollar. Soon upgraded to a Whites 5000di increasing the quantity and quality of my finds. Returned to Chicago in 1985 and hunted off and on over the next 12 years. In 1997 after getting a job with the Chicago fire dept I started hunting in earnest again. In 1999 I discovered the joy of water hunting and use a Minelab Excaliber II and Deus in the water.  I use a Minelab Explorer SE for park hunting, and the Deus for hunting in England.

In June of 1999 I joined the Midwest Historical Research Society my local detecting club. I was president from 2002 to 2010, we currently have about 120 members. 

I have been going to England twice a year near since 2005 which has opened up a whole new area for ancient finds. My current gold coin total is 18.
