Firstly, thank you all so much for joining us and giving the sort of support which was way beyond expectation at so early a stage. We have a steady stream joining our ranks and we are delighted to see each and every one of you.

One thing which stands out a mile is the incredible wealth of experience that many of you have. It's staggering, and got me thinking...

What would be the total number of years' experience we have on here if they were all added up together?

It doesn't matter if it's 40 years or 40 minutes - if you'd like to post below with how long you've been detecting we'll get Bruce to add it up and keep a running total. Ah. Hold ye hard. There's a fatal flaw in that plan if his reckoning on jellybean sharing-out is anything to go by. Nope, scrub that - I'll do it and edit the title of this thread with the running total.

:D :thumbsup:

EDIT:
Rather than keep changing the title, I'll edit a post every now and again with the running total

Well we all keep learning no matter how long we`ve been detecting. There`s ALWAYS something new to learn. Trouble is when you reach the "Old Codger" age your like a leaky bucket. Your Brain forgets things as fast as your learning things . :lol:
