Getting partnered

Good evening everyone. I wanted to write this blog post to let everyone know about a recent partnership I’ve made with Teknetics Metal Detectors. I have never owned a Teknetics machine but I have heard nothing except good things about them and I’ve thought about purchasing one in the past. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a loaner detector to review from Teknetics Direct. I am also looking forward to the future opportunities of field testing their new equipment before it goes to market. I was talking to Mr. Dick Stout about this relationship and he mentioned that Teknetics had a great reputation for their quality.

Now you may be asking what a partnership means. I want to be transparent about the relationship so nobody thinks that I exclusively promote Teknetics equipment. As mentioned above the partnership is mostly about reviewing/testing their equipment. The only caveat is that buy using my PROMO CODE on their website when ordering equipment you can get specials ranging from $50 off + free shipping to just free shipping. This partnership benefits me by the company giving me a commission on referrals. That being said I would greatly appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to shop their website and see if you need anything. The site features a metal detector for any budget. So do some browsing on Teknetics site and if you decide to make a purchase enter the code A1493 in the promo code section to get your special pricing and help me out.

It has always amazed me how great the people in the metal detecting community are and I hope that you enjoy Teknetics new site.

Thanks for reading and Happy Hunting!

Running in parallels with an occasional back flip

Tonight lets talk about hobbies, fun, and parallels. I have many hobbies that take place outdoors. Today I started thinking about the joy and fun they bring to my life. I then started tying all the strings together… Here you go.

Metal detecting and Fishing:

Both require you to know what you are looking for and where to find it. You don’t try to catch a big bass in a new pond that was just stocked with fingerlings. Likewise looking for ancient roman coins in the local playground probably isn’t going to pay off.

You can tell someone where you found “treasure”, but if they don’t know how to catch fish they will be casting without success. Theory holds true for dirtfishing as well!

Detecting and RC planes:

You can have the biggest and baddest machine. However, if you don’t know how to use it I doubt you will get the results you want. I believe this is where we can bring fun into the equation. If I had a $500+ plane or a detector that pushed the $2,000 mark would I still be able to go out and have fun? I think for a person that hasn’t put in the time to learn a hobby it would be stressful. I wouldn’t want to fly a plane that had cost me that much. I would always wander why my fancy detector doesn’t find treasure all the time.

Geocaching and treasure hunting:

These two go hand in hand better than the others.. If you have never gone geocaching I will explain. People hide a cache in a small container. They give you GPS coordinates to get you in the right area. You still have to use your imagination and clues to find it. Does this sound familiar to those people that search for caches on a regular basis? Eventually you start learning where and how someone would have hid their “treasure”.

All in all I’m perfectly content with my plane and Ace250. I can grab either one of them and go have fun. In the end isn’t that what hobbies are for? I for one enjoy relaxed detecting, flying, and fishing. So if you find yourself stressing about a hobby it may be time to reevaluate why and how you are doing it.

Get Social:

I have done all above hobbies alone, with family, and with a group of friends. I can confidently say that the company you may or may not keep effects the level of enjoyment you have.

Just FYI 16mph winds are too stiff to fly my RC plane. That is where the backflip comes in. It is a nice beginner plane that doesn’t break easily and can be put back together very quickly. This is good because if it had been a high dollar gas plane I wouldn’t be able to type this post because my eyes would be full of tears!

Thanks for reading; now go enjoy a hobby or two!
