Metal Detecting is the Safest Thing You Can Do
Social Distancing Yourself from Others During The Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Documented by Timothy Draper
It is true, the Coronavirus is a real threat and we all need to do what we can to keep from spreading it further. Being stuck in the house isn’t much fun unless you have something to look forward to. That’s why I think nothing is better than some fresh air and a change of scenery to avoid cabin fever. We need to keep our distance from large groups and the everyday city life, but what if you could have fun outside?
Metal detecting is the safest thing I can suggest. It’s an awesome way to get out of the house, have some fun, and never have to be in contact with anyone. Just imagine you and your loves ones out in the great outdoors with a purpose, exploring and finding treasures together. Metal detecting is very rewarding, and families love it. The kids love grabbing a shovel and walking along with you, waiting to dig for the unknown. There’s plenty of kid metal detectors too. The whole family can get involved.
To be honest with you, I haven’t met one person yet that doesn’t get that adventurous look in their eyes when I tell them they could be a modern-day treasure hunter. It’s one of the fastest-growing outdoor hobbies in the world and everyone can do it. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, there’s many different types of detectors on the market to accommodate everyone.
Now let’s get to the part where you can protect your family and yourself from the virus. First off, plan ahead on how to leave the house and get to where you’re going without having to stop at the stores on the way there.
Where Should I Go?
If you have a place in mind, great! Make sure you’re choosing a location out of town or away from people. That way, you have a better chance of not seeing anyone or have to worry about being to close. If you need some ideas, use Google and Google Earth to help you narrow down an area. If you are new to metal detecting, do a little research on the web for locations outside of your city to see where others enjoy detecting.
What Should I Take with Me?
Decide how long you plan to be gone and how many people you are taking, and then pack accordingly. Take a cooler to keep everything fresh and cool. If you plan on being gone for a few hours, take a lunch and/or dinner, including snacks and drinks. Make sure to stay hydrated.
What About Gasoline for the Drive?
Don’t leave town without a full tank of gas but don’t go inside the gas station, pay at the pump. When you get out of your car, swipe your bank card to pay. Then use a Clorox wipe to sterilize the handle of the pump and there you have it. You left the house and didn’t have to come face to face with anyone.
What Should I Do When I Arrive at The Destination?
Once you have arrived, look around. It’s okay if you see people in the distance, it’s the great outdoors. Just don’t go to a place that is crowded. There’s plenty of room out there so if you see a big crowd, drive down the road another mile or so and you’ll be fine.
There you have it! This a great plan and you’ll be glad you did it. I guarantee that you will feel like a new person once you get back home. Just being out in the fresh air could do us all some good and most likely, you’ll be able to handle being cooped up in the house for a few more days now while choosing your next location.
