On a recent trip out detecting, we loaded up the car with detectors, food, chairs, water, gps, pin-pointers and all the other necessary equipment and made our way South to an organised rally. On arrival, we unloaded the car, set up the machines and were almost ready to go, when we noticed 2 things.
a] that one spade was nowhere to be seen ..... yep, we'd left it at home, and
b] a set of headphones were missing ... yep, the owner of the missing spade had left them at home wrapped around the detector that he wished to use that day!
Thankfully, we'd remembered to pack a spare detector and relied on a loan of a spade!
............ and we thought we'd planned the day well.
