Hi guys.
What's been happening out there lately ?
I haven't been on the forum for ages and is a bit shocked to see that there's no posts for the past couple of years. Where have you all gone ??
Is Detecting Wales no more ?
And is there no more rallies ??

Sun is out and the last gold hasn't been found.

Hope you are all ok.

Still here, not much happening on this site, rallies on this site finished many years ago, everything seems to have moved to Facebook, not for the best in my opinion but we have to move with the times or give up.

I guess times and priorities change and on the whole I rarely use forums or chat rooms anymore. Does anyone? I still check in here most days.

The web site is still slowly ticking over and who know we may come out of retirement for a rally one day. Land is an issue.

Cheers

Yes, I've noticed a few rallies being advertised on facebook, but they charge half a days wages and then there's the fuel cost too, which isn't much short of being a back breaker now a days, so just not been very tempted to try them. 

It's a real shame if it's lack of land to go on that's ending our DW rallies. Would it be possible to re-visit some of the places we've been to before, like feks the two farms at Trippenkennett ?

Never been to a metal detecting rally yet but I do fancy trying an opportunity to try attending one; even if it is a  beach rally.

I still look in here once, or twice, a week but have had my detecting sorely restricted over the last two years; I have even been thinking of selling up and moving on.

PS .... I don't do Facebook anymore.

It’s all on Facebook now, not always for the best in my opinion, but as they say we move with the times or fall by the wayside, there is always the beach or your own permissions unless the ‘professionals’ have gazumped you.
The Influencers are getting to the point of pricing themselves out and with the cost of fuel I have to think twice before putting my name down.
They are also attracting people who because they see only the best finds on Facebook think it is easy and they will find good items every time they go out.
Let me know if you find anything better to get me of the sofa, otherwise keep the faith and show us what you can find.
