I've detected the meaning of life - buried treasure

If you ask teachers to say the two main reasons why they chose their profession, many will say, "July and August."

But not me. I embrace the job and have a zillion more important reasons, including "making a difference." I do enjoy the summers off yet still feel the need to be productive.

With the summer approaching, I am thinking of solid ways of being productive when I am off. I can think of nothing more productive than purchasing a metal detector and striking it rich from the buried treasures found on beaches.

By my calculations, if I buy a Kellyco Hybrid Cobra beach metal detector for $449.95, then I will easily make back my initial investment in 2 years, 9 months.If I had a glorious Kellyco beach metal detector, I would find approximately $0.45 per day, as long as I put eight hours into metal detecting each time. Assuming I did that every day (including the school year) for 2 years, 9 months, I would recoup my $449.95. Then, in the next July and August, I would metal detect every day and earn $27.45. That's what I call easy money!

Whenever I run across something too good to be true, I must take a step back and wonder if what I have discovered is truly that special. After doing the math, thinking through things slowly and clearly, I must say that metal detecting on beaches is the way to go.

If you ever happen to see a metal detecting beach guy, it is obvious. Look at the chap's countenance. Yeah, it's true. He's got the world figured out.

Give me just three years. Expect my skin to turn leathery from being on beaches for eight hours per day. But bank account, get ready. Here comes $27.45!

  3. Walk through metal detectors offer quick and effective processing. waterproof metal detector In order to do this, you must read every word of the manual that came with your metal detector.

  4. I mainly go to colonial sites but have gotten more then enough to cover the purchase of a cheap detector, a $300 one and a $600 one as my interest increased. It took less then a year with a few hours here and there. In our backyard, I got a 14k gold ring with 3 diamonds and amethysts. The gold alone on its size is around $400. As it is just a hobby for me, it is tossed in a fireproof safe for a rainy day just to keep. Also tons of colonial buttons, a few coins, etc. If you like history, research your area, get permissions on properties, and have fun.
