Hello all! Im new here. Im 34 years old and am an AZ native. Ive been a huge fan of exploring and metal detecting since I was a very young boy. Ive visited indian ruins all over the state as well as explored many of the well known caves, mines, mining towns etc. Ive done some detecting out at Vulture mine etc. Unfortunately Im not an extremely experienced hiker, but I plan to change that very soon. Recently I've got the bug again. As a long time researcher of the Superstitions, LDM, etc, Id like to do some serious hiking and exploring soon. Ive joined several nugget hunting and treasure hunting forums, but this community has something special. Im happy to now be a part of it. Id love to get a hike together soon! I've got the fever and Im excited to get out!
