Certified Trainer

I am a certified instructor/trainer in all metal detectors and products made by Minelab.  I also work closely with all the other major metal detector companies and have great working relationships with them.  No matter what machine you may have and use, I will know how to answer all of your questions and teach you the best way to set it up for each scenario.


Over the decades I have owned well over 40 different metal detectors and I have many countless hours on each one.  I currently own all of the top machines in the market today.  On my YouTube channel I have many reviews and complete guides for today’s best selling metal detectors.  I have tried just about every possible way to pack gear out on a trip and can show you everything from the best packs and gear to the best digging tools, the best safety and survival equipment, the best shoes and clothing to wear and even the best snacks for adventures.

Survival & First Aid

I have been a Paramedic-Firefighter since 1987 and worked over 25 years in the very busy communities of Northern California.  I was a Paramedic Instructor, a Precepter as well as a Field Training Officer for new Paramedics.  Along this journey I often spent lot’s of time in adventures in hostile and dangerous terrain with bears, lions, rattlesnakes, bees, wasps, mosquitoes, ticks and more!  I can help you be prepared for an emergency by showing you exactly what you need to carry with you on adventures into the wilderness.
