My "Other" life and blog spot

He folks just wanted to pass on my other blog site that my partner Jason and I run called DUG (Discovered Under Ground). We both got bit by the treasure hunting bug and it has develop into a very rewarding hobby/pursuit. The friendship that has come from this is a strong one and I feel extremely lucky to have crossed paths with my treasure hunting partner.

The site features both "QuickDigs" which are short as it happened and full 10 minute plus episodes of some very unique and historical finds that we have come across in which we want to share the full story.

 Possible treasure symbol from long ago I found at a old home site, it is quite large 6" wide x 18" tall "Hourglass" and could be a danger symbol for "WAR" or it means "One Day" according to a book on treasure signs and symbols from author and veteran metal detector and pioneer Charles Garrett.

At first we thought of finding coins and gold was the point in all this only to discover it was the post dig/find that really made us happy. Diving into research, talking with "Old Timers" and delivering a quality product for you to enjoy has brought more satisfaction they we imagine possible. We do not promote Relics for profit and have donated things back to places like musuems and local historical groups in which the objects are made available to a wider audience instead of a private collector.

 A very nice example of a 1903 Liberty AKA Barber dime minted in New Orleans, its amazing that this dime has been in the ground for so long and still look so good.

So please take the time to look at the Team DUG blog site, subscribe to it and the YouTube site and you will always know when a new episode comes out. We are working on the next one now that will feature a "Sterling Silver" Baseball from 1944 found at a 1890's "Dog Trot" cabin/homestead. It will be a good show for sure so please stay tuned and help us spread the word as we try to promote "Good" quality, informative entertainment. We also want to be good stewards of proper metal detecting "Ethics" to ensure we and future generation can enjoy the thrill, excitement and adventure in Treasure hunting

Recently I had a chance to speak at my daughters and sons school, in which I put on a short presentation about treasure hunting, history and practicing good ethics while enjoying the hobby. I would have to say that it was a great experience for both the teachers, student and myself. I really believe it will only get better

Thanks in advance for any feedback and we look forward to hearing from you on any question, or possibly bringing Team DUG to you for a episode. My new motto is Patience, Persistent and be Optimistic!

Good article and a update

Okay I know its the first post of the year and we have already moved through a good part of 2012. I am now working at a machine shop which specializes in protoytpe oil and natural gas drilling fixtures and everything in between. I took the job on for a few reasons first was to help my friend as he is swamped with work second was my background in metal work and machining.

So far it has been rewarding as I begin to understand how to work diffent machines, measurements/indicating, fixture/setup and the key to it all is feeds and speeds. In time I will be able to apply this to my knife and tool making to produce a better product for my friends and customers. When the time is right I will begin to work on some folders and I have several projects in mind that before would have been unattainable to do limited machine knowledge.

The next item is a testimony written by David Reeder from a high level Federal Mexican Drug enforcement officer who some time back found himself in a difficult situation. It marks the first time since building the SAR Eclipse Signal System (SESS) that I received feedback in which it played a role in the direct rescue of a person. Since then I have received feedback from a few other individuals like FBI agent, US Army and a NEW Zeland service member that have relayed like stories of successful rescues due implementing the SESS.

I will not lie it has become the most important thing I make here at SAR Global Tool, knowing that every tag made possess the potential to help a person out of a life threatening situation. So in a nutshell if I never sold another signal device, it would have been worth the time, money and effort.

I am at this moment working on the next evolution of the SESS it will feature a vast improvement in daytime signal operation. I am confident that the SESS will become a fixture for military, law enforcement, rescue personnel and civilians can depend on when the chips are down.

Anyways look forward to posting some new stuff and sharing my progress in becoming a "Hack" machinist"...lol
