You Hunt Your Way and I'll Hunt Mine

Hunting season is upon us... Lord Jesus protect my eyes from the multitude of slain animal carcasses that will surely fill up my timeline in the coming months.  Proud men and women standing, antlers in hand, foot on body with primeval looks upon their faces--fists pumped in the air.

Oh hunters, I don't begrudge you your hobby, and I will certainly seek you out during the impending zombie apocalypse because I will lack the specially honed skills of killing, skinning and preparing freshly caught game which will be essential to my survival.  I also recognize the amazing benefits of obtaining fresh food that was not purchased at the local grocery, pumped full of hormones, sodium and pink dye.   I'm all for anyone who wishes to go out there and catch their own dinner provided they are not doing it simply for the sport of chasing down a defenseless, unarmed creature...  I just feel overwhelming sadness at the demise of these amazing animals who share the woods with me while I'm digging up relics.

Look, I'm the sensitive type.  I cry over road kill, so I really don't want to see dead Bambi pictures or trophy heads on the wall. But unfortunately for me, those who run in the metal detecting world tend to be avid outdoors folks and hunting is often part of that lifestyle.  Therefore, as a member of this community that I love so much, it is a burden I must face as I scroll through my daily news feed ripe with a flurry of leafy camouflage and lifeless fur. (And now undoubtedly taunts from my hunting friends who will relentlessly tease me over this!! Go gently on me!)

So in response I will leave you with the eloquent words of Marissa Tomei to provide the sum total of my feelings on the matter:  "imagine you're a deer..." "You put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A F%$king bullet rips off part of your head.  Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces!" Now I ask ya, do you think he gives a F&$k what your selfie looks like? (I improvised that last bit of course.) [Click Here For the Full Effect]

Cool Chicks

My best girlfriend and I were just reminiscing about our days in the music world.  I'm sure I don't have to point out all the pitfalls of being a woman in a male dominated industry.  The word "groupie" was tossed around so much it was sickening—and if you said it within earshot of either of us, you were guaranteed to get a high-heeled boot up the backside or at least a steely glare and a berating that made you retreat to the nearest corner.  Meanwhile male reviewers, who couldn't hold a candle to our collective musical knowledge and kissed more ass than a toilet seat were held up and celebrated as the true authority.  We had to work ten times as hard and continually struggled to be taken seriously.  Not fair, but a reality.  One of the many things we refused to do was reject or downplay our sexuality or our girlie-ness. We stood proud and strong and didn't take any crap from anyone—we were cool chicks!


Like many fellow female detectorists, I can be a total tomboy.  I like to play in the dirt, I don't mind worms and I’m not intimidated by power tools—but I'm still a woman.  I love rock music and I have attitude and a penchant for slipping into high heels, donning little black dresses and dabbing on a bit of lip gloss.  I shouldn't have to apologize for that, and I'm certainly not going to alter my personality for fear that someone might not "get it". Yet I find myself faced with similar issues in this venue as in that of the music industry.  The balance of being a cool rock chick with attitude, which is prevalent throughout the theme of Girls Rock Metal Detecting, and not being taken seriously. The big premise behind the Girls Rock movement is being true to oneself and  busting stereotypes. It's far from traditional and not everyone can be expected to understand it.  I can appreciate and respect that. I fully recognized that I was going to meet with some resistance when I started this project.  I also expected to hear things like "The only reason people are watching your videos is because you have a vagina." Yup... the secret is out people.  I, Siren Kimmie, have a vagina!  I was born with it actually!   Quite proud of it in fact!  So if you are going to ridicule me and the ladies that participate in Girls Rock based on our body parts and the motives of others--which we have no control over-- this sounds like your issue not ours! 


Finally, the thing that frustrates me most is the imaginary competition that has been created among other women in this hobby. I don't believe that anyone is doing videos or blogs or Facebook groups or any of it, simply to try to "out do" one another--If you are, that's just sad.  That premise to me is silly.  There is PLENTY of room for everyone to participate.  We are not selling a product here people.  The viewing public is not a consumer base that we have to worry will choose our brand over another.  Fact of the matter is, if someone likes what you're doing they'll watch and hopefully subscribe.  There isn't anything we are doing at Girls Rock that will get in the way of that, nor would we want to!  The more women out there doing this, the more we will become a fixture in the hobby and the battle will be won so to speak. There is no need or room for envy or jealousy.  There is no "prize" to be won and no on is attempting to take anything from you.   So ladies, lets get our cool chick on and start celebrating one another!  Let's  hang out with the guys, have a beer, tell a joke, laugh and dig up some really amazing coins and relics together!

The Gettysburg of Ohio Needs YOU!

First off, let me explain what the Gettysburg of Ohio is.  The Civil War Preservation Project of Ohio (CWPPO), led by Sam Waters, is a group of historical enthusiasts, archaeologists and metal detectorists who have volunteered their efforts with the goal of locating evidence of the northernmost battle in the American Civil War. The battle of Salineville was fought over 40 days as elements of the Union Army and Ohio Militia troops pursued General John Hunt Morgan's confederate cavalry troops. Sadly these events are not well documented! The hope is to provide more concrete evidence for GPS mapping to create a "flow of battle" map.  Several teams of metal detectorists (myself included), excavators, Civil War experts, documentation assistants, and other volunteers, will work together to locate, recover, identify and document locations of period artifacts.  In this effort the goal is to identify the scope of fighting by determining areas where concentrations of fired and dropped lead ammunition may be found as well as Union and Confederate uniform buttons, camp gear and equine equipment dropped or discarded as soldiers fought and fled. Relics will be donated to the local historical society and museum to be displayed so visitors can learn more about this little known Civil War event.  It is also hoped that enough proof will be uncovered where the historical society will then be awarded much needed grants and well-deserved battle markers.

Funds are DESPERATELY needed!!!  It is a rare occasions - this being the only time - I come to my readers, viewers, friends and family asking for donations for anything.  But I wholeheartedly believe in this project and what Sam is doing here. It's important!  This history needs to be brought out into the light! Please, please, please, help out in any way you can! Thank you!

Spamming and Slamming

A few days ago I let loose the Girls Rock Metal Detecting website upon the masses of Facebook. I have been a contributing member, sharing finds and engaging with other detectorists in social media communities since the day I started metal detecting almost four years ago. I am a video narrator and on other channels and have created banners and graphics for different pages as well as being an active moderator of various Facebook groups. While I did effectuate a profile change when undertaking the Girls Rock Metal Detecting project, and may seem like a new face, I still felt comfortable posting the website, which is completely on topic. I had also received an amazing response from moderators who encouraged me to post links, blog articles, videos, or "whatever I wanted."  Needless to say, I was quite shocked when someone accused me of being a spammer and a non-participant in the groups.

What exactly is spam?  "Electronic spamming is the use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited messages (spam), especially advertising, as well as sending messages repeatedly on the same site..." "It is named after Spam, a luncheon meat, by way of a Monty Python sketch in which Spam is included in every dish. The food is stereo-typically disliked/unwanted, ..." Thank you Wikipedia! I think it's safe to say that I was not hurling canned meat at anyone so we'll go with the electronic definition of spam. I was not selling anything and I never posted the link more than one time to any group. While it is true, I did post the link to multiple groups, I am an active member in these groups and wished to share my website with each group much like I do with finds, videos or blog articles. Those of us belonging to multiple groups have grown accustomed to seeing posts more than once, accepting this as a harmless side effect. (We could get into semantics about how there are way too many metal detecting groups but I didn't create the Facebook world I just reside in it -- Plus I love the variety!)  Next, speaking to relevancy, as a member of a "metal detecting group" there is an assumption of risk that you will see metal detecting links (gasp!). However, an amazing little tool known as a "scroll bar" allows you to scroll through posts until you find something that catches your fancy. Bottom line, your personal lack of interest in a post does not make it spam.

There are two things an innocent bystander may not know about me: 1) I have a tremendous passion for metal detecting and 2) I have an out-of-control creative side that regularly assumes full dominion over my being, plunging me into projects it feels will sedate my artistic cravings. From this, Girls Rock Metal Detecting was conceived. While it is true, the idea was born out of a vision to provide a platform for female detectorists to fully express themselves, it would be disingenuous not to point out the benefits I am being afforded. Girls Rock Metal Detecting has tapped into a side of me that has been dormant for some time--The imaginative artsy side who is so excited to have a reason to write, create graphics, produce videos, engineer film and sounds, and to interact with others in a hobby that is truly inspiring. The one thing I am NOT getting out of this is money! I never intended for Girls Rock Metal Detecting to generate a revenue of any sort. I have long since learned that it is difficult to find a job in the arts that actually pays the bills, so I must hold down a 40 hour a week career to keep a roof over my head.  I truly believe, because this project is not money driven, what I am doing comes for a pure and true place in my heart (as corny as that sounds). I hope this honesty translates through the videos and my social media content. I realize not everyone will understand and appreciate what I'm doing, but I really hope you'll give it a chance.

Building Up or Tearing Down

I have never claimed to be overly mature.  I’m a proud member of the Peter Pan generation and I refuse to grow up.  I like toys, I love to play and I plan on staying young forever (if only at heart).  I fully encourage this behavior in everyone.  However, I do not subscribe to the mentality of keyboard warriors, who hold fast to clichĂ© cliquey high school ignorance.  

Social media, historically, has been a breeding ground for spreading hate and nastiness because it comes with no real consequences.  You can say something unkind to another person and walk away from the keyboard into your own existence without ever having to answer for your inappropriate behavior.  In America we preach free speech and so many hide behind this as if it's a license to be ugly.  

Mean girls (and boys), fueled by jealousy, boredom or a complete lack of social grace and etiquette, take every opportunity to tear others down.  It's quite sad really.  I cannot imagine any person truly feeling GOOD about themselves as they are belittling or insulting and hurting another human being.  There is enough hate in the world, that here, in the metal detecting community, where we all have something in common, you would think everyone could get along. Instead there are accusations of staged finds, back biting and tormenting behavior that leaves me shaking my head on an almost daily basis.

This post is not some altruistic attempt at changing the world.  I have enough of my own cynicism where that is concerned, but I truly hope that maybe a few will pause and consider their actions.  I for one continue to spend my time telling my fellow detectorists how amazing they are—letting each and every detecting darling know that she is beautiful, unique and special.  Spreading kindness instead of hate is so much more fulfilling don't you think? 

Meanwhile, I will just sit back and watch that bitch karma sort it all out.

Wood Nymphs and Other Tales...

She is continually asked what she finds so intriguing about metal detecting.

What is the appeal?

This particularly humid summer day leaves her considering this question as sweat drips down the small of her back and hair clings to her face.  She mindlessly brushes a wayward stand out of her eye, leaving a streak of dirt across her cheek.  Mosquitoes and other biting insects buzz around, attempting to make her their next meal.  She shakes her head in response and notices a twig which she plucks from her now disheveled do.  Her knees and backside are dirty and she is pretty sure she has an entire beach-full of sand and earth in her shoes, bra and panties (how it gets there is a mystery)!  


She glances down at broken, mud-encrusted fingernails, taking note of her arms, now covered in thorn scratches and bruises for which she has no recollection of their origin.  By days end her entire body will tell the tale of running around like a wood nymph, navigating briars, hoisting over fallen trees, sliding down crevasses and climbing steep hills. Anyone in their right mind would say this sounds like a horrid way to spend the day.

Breathing in deeply, savoring the smell of dirt, brush, pine and leaves, her mouth curves up in a knowing smile.  Metal detecting puts her in touch with history, this much is true.  She loves digging up relics and imagining what life was like those many years ago.  But the truth of the matter is, beyond the thrill of the hunt, being outdoors, in the dirt, having an intimate connection with nature—what BETTER way to spend the day?

Introvert Seeks Permission

So, I have a major dilemma.  It has come to the point in my metal detecting career where I am going to have to start asking for permission to dig.  Up until this time I have been on hunts with others or I've stuck to my local parks and "free game" areas.  The problem is, my spots are producing less and less and I am going to have to start branching out if I hope to continue in my beloved hobby.  Now, there are a few places I have been coveting from afar.  The next natural step would be knocking on some doors…Herein lies the quandary.

I always thought I was a "people person".  I mean, I like people. I really do!  I can hold a conversation with just about anyone and I am not judgmental or rude just for the sake of being so.  If I'm having a bad day I don't take it out on others and I try to smile as often as possible, even when it's the last thing I feel like doing.  Yet when a childhood friend asked me for my telephone number instead of communicating through text, I avoided it like I was being asked to perform a speech naked in front of a million people!

"Kimmie, don't tell me you've become an introvert!?!?" he demanded.  

"Nooooo of course not!" I texted in return. 

Flash back to a few months ago when Gary of Heavy Metal Detecting asked me why I wasn't on film more often.  He coaxed me into doing a bit for one of his videos, and while in the process of recording I suddenly became breathless and anxious.  I quite literally felt like I was going to have a heart attack! Gerald was there at the time and asked what was wrong.   

I responded in a panic, "I don't know! Filming this is freaking me out!"  

I forced myself to get through it, but the more I analyzed…I quickly realized, I AM an introvert!  I like to spend time alone.  I always have.  I'm not a big "sharer" when it comes to my feelings, with the exception of those that know me intimately and I don't really have a lot of close friends.  My mum even loves to retell the story when I was a child of how I left my bestie sitting on the front porch for an hour while playing in my room because I forgot she was there.  

So yes, it seems I am, and always have been, an introvert.

Now that we've established this lovely character trait of mine… The point of this whole diatribe--How does an introvert ask for permission to hunt someone’s property?  

I guess we’re about to find out!

Coffee Addition with Organo Gold

It’s no secret that I love coffee.  My Facebook friends can attest to my almost-daily posts that border on obsessiveness.  I even wrote an ode to that wonderful, beautiful, libation years ago called “The Religion of Coffee” (See previous post).  So when one of my Facebook friends happened to see this probably-unhealthy addiction for that rich, dark goodness and asked if I wanted to try some samples of Organo Gold, I said “Well, YEAH!”  As luck would have it, the little packets came in the mail the very day I ran out of coffee at home. (I had forgotten to pick some up at the store – so my addiction clearly isn’t full-blown!)  I opened the packet, and set my one-cupper to brew.  Now please keep in mind that I generally only put cream in my coffee (just to cut down on the acid) but this CafĂ© Latte contained cream and sugar, so it was a little sweet for me.  But I have to say, it was totally tasty none-the-less. It mixed sort of like instant coffee (but it’s not), smelled amazing and provided the mandatory caffeine kick I look for in all my coffee products.  As an added bonus it is low acid and contains Ganoderma which is purported to promote health and longevity.  What can be wrong with that?  Plus ist's very portable, so perfect for detecting trips when you're going to need a little warmer or pick me up! So, if you’re a fan of coffee, like I am, hop on over to TracyPetersen.MyOrganoGold.com and check it out for yourself!

The Religion of Coffee

The brisk morning air causes an involuntary shiver.
I wrap my fingers around a tall coffee, enfolding it in my hands like a precious gift. Heat creeps through my palms and into sleepy digits while I pause, embracing the anticipation, before raising cup to mouth. Pressing eager lips to the rim, the soothing aroma awakens the soul as steam flutters across my skin. Gingerly sucking in the too-hot liquid, I am mindless of the slightly seared tongue. Instead, my focus remains centered on the lifeblood radiating down my throat, warming my belly and stealing into my limbs with heady affection. The remainder will be consumed in an involuntary act, but for this moment, my entire being is enlightened, comforted…sustained. With this, I begin the day in a hopeful, Zen-like calm.

Rock Star Metal Detectorists

I'm going to address this once, and once only. I have seen multiple posts complaining about detectorists attempting to become "rock stars" -- insinuating that anyone who would dare disgrace the sovereignty of metal detecting by attempting to bust the stereotype of crusty, crotchety old men digging for rings on the beach, must certainly be in it solely for notoriety.

Let's get real! There has never been, nor will there ever be a detectorist that will reach anything remotely close to rock star status. There isn't anyone out there interesting enough to fill Blossom Music Center or Wembley Stadium based on their detecting prowess alone. None of us are going to get "rich" from our social media popularity.  And I'm fairly certain people are not finding themselves with the proverbial light bulb over their heads and an epiphany that they are going to take up metal detecting because it will lead to fame and fortune.  Only a handful have achieved more than a few moments in the spot light of TV.  This hardly leads to a mansion in Bel-Air and a vacation home in Tuscany. The truth is, each and every one of us was lured into this hobby because we were excited about the hunt. Simple as that!


Facebook and YouTube has brought together people from all walks of life and differing backgrounds--each and every one of us having a passion for digging up history or treasures. To belittle or attempt to undermine someone’s passion simply because they choose to live life out loud while expressing it, is just sad! Social media is changing the face of metal detecting. This is a fact that cannot be denied. The choice is to accept it or hide your head in a hole (Hopefully one with a really cool relic.) until you're old, grey and senile.  It’s not going away!  More and more of us are utilizing social media to demonstrate our love for the hobby and this, my friends, is a GOOD thing!  


For me, music and metal detecting bring out some of my truest, rawest emotions.  When I dig up a relic I am connected to the past just as much as I am when I hear a song on the radio that transports me back in time.  Music and metal detecting are emotionally provocative, not to mention fun (You know that thing, fun?) and I will not apologize for melding the two together.

Incidentally, I don’t need metal detecting to propel me into rock stardom. I, along with the other lovelies who grace the pages of Girls Rock Metal Detecting, were rock stars long before we began swinging a detector--and we have no intention of toning ourselves down for anyone!

Interview with Brandon Neice aka Dr. Tones of Dirt Fishin America

This time out Twenty Questions with Girls Rock Metal Detecting has decide to harass Brandon Neice aka Dr. Tones of Dirt Fishin America fame.  Dr. Tones’s background uncovers a life time of experience which began at a young age prospecting with his father and eventually expanded into a full grown habit of metal detecting and relic hunting. He’s an integral part of this fun-loving group of guys who, when not fighting fires and saving lives at their “regular jobs”, are digging for treasures all across the United States and beyond.   Dr. Tones also brings some super-talented video editing skills to the table that make the rest of us YouTubers want to hang our heads in shame.  If you haven’t checked out these videos yet, you’re in for a real treat!

1. Pretend you’re doing an interview for the coolest page on Facebook (Oh, wait, we are the coolest page on Facebook!) tell us, who IS Dr. Tones?
Dr. Tones is my (Brandon Neice’s) alter ego. He’s an adventurer. A mix between Indiana Jones and a Goonie. The name was a silly pun on words that I used for my forum handle. It carried over into my YouTube channel.

2. What did you want to be when you were 10 years old?
Pretty sure at age ten I wanted to be a comic book artist or a baseball player.

3. If you could go back and talk to your 10 year old self, what would you say?
Focus on your education! It will make your life easier when you become an adult!

4. What would the title of your autobiography be?
I have so much ahead of me, I don’t even know. "The best is yet to come” ???  ;)

5. What has been your strangest life experience?
I’m a firefighter paramedic. I can’t begin to tell you how many strange experiences I’ve had. Every day is stranger than the last. Right when you think you’ve seen it all, someone blows your mind.

6. What is “sexy”?
Sexy is when you get dirty… really dirty.

7. Here at Girls Rock Metal Detecting, we’re really into music – what song would you say best describes your metal detecting technique? (Explain)
The Smashing Pumpkins “Today” Because “today is the greatest…” every time we get to go detecting.

8. If you could bring one musician back from the dead, who would it be and why?
Kurt Cobain. So I could give him a hug and tell him that he’s not alone and that there’s help for him.

9. What do you think about when you’re alone?
When I’m alone I think about why how nice it is to be alone. And then I miss having company and get lonely.

10. A billionaire offers you a million dollars to launch your best business idea.  What is this business venture?
Chicken-Mike-Nuggets. Chicken nuggets shaped like Evander Holyfields ears that come with ketchup.

11. If you could be anyone besides yourself who would you be and why?  And you have to choose someone else, you can’t cop out and say “I wouldn’t choose anyone, I love who I am!” --because that’s just BORING!
I would be Einstein so I could know what it’s like to be ridiculously smart.

12. Is the glass half empty or is it half full?
The glass is half full but could always use a refill

13. If you could change ANYTHING about the world we live in, what would it be?
I would give all the parents in the world a chance to watch their children live full, happy lives free of pain, disease and abuse. After having a son of my own who is healthy and thriving, I can’t imagine being a parent having to cope with some of the aforementioned.

14. Now for the detecting questions, this is a detecting page after all. What does metal detecting mean to you?
Metal detecting to me is a fun way to learn about the past while preserving it. Most important, it gives me memories and gets me out exploring.

15.  If you could spend an entire week detecting one single location, anywhere in the world, where would you be digging and why?
Somewhere with land mines so I could feel like I made a difference.

16.  You are six miles deep into the woods and you dig up 100 gold bars.  You only have access to the property for 24 hours and there is no way you can carry them all out at one time. The terrain is such that you cannot access it with any vehicles of any sort, what do you do?
Do I have cell reception? If so I’d text all my friends the coordinates and tell them to hurry! You can keep what you can carry!

17.  You have found the perfect digging spot, turning up lots and lots of goodies, do you invite your friends to join or do you keep it to yourself?
Refer to the above.

18.  You’ve asked a farmer if you can detect his property.  He says, “No, the last person to dig here was a real jackass and left holes and trash all over the place.  What do you do/say to convince him to allow you to detect his property?
I ask the farmer if he has the name of the individual that ruined my chances of detecting his land so I could put my T-handle upside his head!

19.  The only predictable question that everyone wants to know so we have to ask it:  What is your all-time favorite metal detector and what do you love about it?
CTX 3030. I love it because it just clicks with me. I have spent so much time with her. She has found my best digs.

20. What do you think about Girls Rock Metal Detecting and if you could change anything about it what would that be? (Note: If you’re mean to us well throw rocks at you and call you names.)
