Five Year Flash Back


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbrn5PtIi5M

We danced, we sang, we battled zombies, we dug some incredible finds, and we had some truly unforgettable times! These past five years have been filled with laughter and tears, and the best detecting partners anyone could hope for. Thanks to those who have subbed on Youtube and watch the videos. They are a labor of love which are often weeks, even months in the making. I am so thankful to have the memories captured and finds recorded, and equally grateful for those who have supported me and the channel. FIVE YEARS have flown by! I cannot express how much I appreciate each and every one of you for taking this journey with me! I hope you will stick around to see what the next five years bring!  You guys really do ROCK metal detecting. To recap the adventures we've put together a fast and furious flash back through last five years of Girls Rock Metal Detecting. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together!  xoxo Siren Kimmie

A Shiny New Detector

Here's a little piece I wrote that was published in the latest issue of The Archaeology and Metal Detecting Magazine:

Be sure to check out Archaeology and Metal Detecting Magazine.  You can usually get your hands on a hard copy at metal detecting events, however due to the Coronavirus pandemic this issue was made available via their website along with previous issues.

The AMAZING Yeti

This morning, while exiting the truck, my prized Yeti coffee cup slipped out of my hands.  It crashed mercilessly to the ground before rolling to a stop by the front passenger tire.  I sprung into action, attempting to rescue my precious brew as it glug-glug-gluged on to the asphalt.  

"NOOOOOOO not my Yeti!!!" I exclaimed before plucking it up along with the plastic slider lock that was resting a few inches away.  

"Maybe I can fix it," I thought to myself doubtfully. 

I tossed the lid into my purse, resigning myself to the fact that I would soon be faced with a pricey replacement.  Once settled into my office I attempted a thorough investigation of the damage.  As I set the lock into it's proper position something magical happened...  It snapped into place!

"What in the world?" 

I  pulled the slider off and watched in wide wonder as it once again snapped back into position.  

"It's MAGNETIC!"  I exclaimed, with probably too much excitement.

"How cool is that!?"  

I must have washed that the thing a thousand times or more, always struggling to clean under that lock... and this WHOLE TIME I had NO IDEA it was magnetic!

You know, sometimes it really is the small things...

New Year, New Decade, New Way!

Welcome to the 2020s!  As we begin a new decade, I want to share something which may sound a little rah-rah, and "common sense-y," but in addition to holding myself accountable, I think it may actually be of benefit to others---not just in detecting, but in the game of life.

Truth is, I am not big on the whole "New Years Resolution" thing.  Most of us greet January 1st with an exhale and a feeling of relief that we survived the previous year, all the while glancing hopefully toward the future. Having a goal is great, but adding pressure because "everyone else is making resolutions," can really be deflating.  Instead, I have decided to look at the new year and this next decade as a "reboot".

That's right.  Another ten years wiser (hopefully), I have come to realize that having no structure in place for achieving goals is a guaranteed fail. (Duh!) Whether it's building up the courage to door knock, learning how to create YouTube videos, or even something personal like eating healthy, or finding a new job; instead of scheduling it for New Year's Day (which many have undoubtedly done), let's use this as a clean slate--a time to start fresh and take control instead of simply reacting defensively to things as they happen.

Below are a few tips which may help in creating the perfect offensive plan:
  1. Identify your goals and WHY you want to achieve them.  (Incidentally if you are attempting to achieve a goal for someone else, you're probably going to fail.  You have to want it for yourself!)
  2. Identify what DOESN'T work.  What have you done in the past that has failed.  Yeah, don't do that again.  Looking at past patterns. You may find that you've been repeating the same behavior over and over expecting different results (That whole "insanity" thing).
  3. Have a contingency plan.  What happens if things do not work out as intended. Obstacles are constantly being throw in our way.  What type of snags are you likely to encounter and how can you work around them?
  4. Get out of your own way.  While identifying your goals, you may realize you are trudging along the same path you've gone down before (see step 2).  Be willing to take a small step back or at least in another direction, to avoid repeating the same mistakes.
  5. Develop a plan and work it!  Don't just say you are going to do something and wait for it to happen; as if shouting your words into the ether will propel you forward. Set a schedule, do something that inspires you, whatever it is that keeps you focused. Work your plan every day.
  6. Set small goals.  Taking baby steps and celebrating small achievements builds confidence, increases will power, and snowballs into success.
So there it is!  I hope these tips will help guide you to unspeakable treasures!
