I wanna do it

I really want to take up MD'ing when I retire. Unfortunately my wife tells me that I do my best to run away from her with different activities as it stands now (probably common theme from guys on this site), so fer now, out of the question.

Re: I wanna do it

once you start bringing some good stuff home (silver and rings) she will be sending you out. My wife had a fit when I bought my first MD in the late 70's for $350. I told her I'd pay it off in 3 months and I did with my finds. Like fishing you never know what you'll catch.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: I wanna do it

My mother and father both had MDs and would often go hunting together. My mother was quite proud of her finds and would sometimes take some of them out to show them to us.

Wife and I will be empty nesters in a year.
We decided MD was something we both could enjoy doing together.

Another day in paradise. God hunts on Sundays.
