General detecting talk / Re: All quite on the Apex front

I think it's going to me simultaneous running multi frequency.  People asked N/M for one and they said they could do it.

I hope so they certainly appear to be a manufacturer that listen to their customers

General detecting talk / All quite on the Apex front

 I’ve not seen much feedback on the Garrett Apex , I’ve lost all hope of the new C Scope and I understand that some Vanquish owner are experiencing dodgy build quality.
So it’s come as a nice surprise that Nokia Mackro are producing a multi frequency machine, to be housed ina Simplex style machine.

I don’t know if it will be like the multi Kruzer with selectable frequencies or hopefully continues multi frequency, Nokia appear to be on the ball when the Simplex was first realised they where quick to sort out the minor problems, so definitely keeping a eye out for its relise

The wording is "you should walk or cycle where possible" so using your car is permissable. The key words are local only, and on your own or with someone from your house bubble. You cannot meet up with anyone outside your home bubble on private land. Weather permitting I will give it a go in the next few days.

If in doubt, speak to your local police.  I was given permission to travel by car to my farm today and the officer gave me his collar number to use as verification if I am questioned.  I can't walk in my urban area due to my mental health issues and they took this into account.

I don't have any permissions within walking distance and I don't have a bike, or any intention of buying one, even if I did by the time I had cycled to my nearest permission I would be absolutely kernakered, my knees would be shot to pieces and my hips would be on fire 😂, good luck to all those able to get back out, I will just have to be patient for a little longer.

I have an auto immune disease, Ankylosing Spondulitis, I have to inject immune suppressing medication every fortnight, it puts me in the clinically extremely vulnerable group, I have my first vaccination injection today, I have been shielding since 16-03-2020, my daughter is a frontline worker and has been to work throughout the entire pandemic, she still lives at home with me, so she's out of the house every day for 5 to 6 days a week, that's all fine and dandy but I am not allowed to go out on my own into a field miles away from another person because I could catch Covid if I do, how, how the bloody hell can I catch Covid being out in the middle of nowhere, how ?
But it's ok for me to live with my daughter who puts her life in danger every day she goes to work, and putting my life at risk as she could bring Covid home with her every day she goes to work !
Doesn't make sense to me, I can live in a dangerous environment but I can't leave my home to be in a safe environment that's only 2 miles from my front door, I also have to have monthly blood tests and every 3 to 6 months have to be seen by my consultant to check the medication is doing what it's meant to, again mixing with hundreds of other people, anyone of them could have Covid and not know it, passing it on the untold amounts of people before they return to their home !
Again that's all ok for me to do but I can't go out on my own in the middle of nowhere where it's the safest place I could be in, bloody ridiculous !
You can bet your last penny the bloody nighthawks are still going out, my permissions will be cleaned out before I can put my space in the ground again !
Sorry rant over lol, roll on summer, just hope it's this summer !

I hope and pray this is over soon and I can walk outside in safety and without fear, but I will never be able to forget the incredible levels of human ignorance, selfishness, and lack of care for their fellow humans that so many people have displayed, which no doubt has cost many people their lives, and kept this thing going much stronger and longer than it would have been.

Imagine if the entire population of the UK thought the pandemic was nothing but a hoax perpetrated by the left wing media. Come to the US where we have about that many people that are not only incredibly ignorant but actually are PROUD of their ignorance. Those type of people are more easily led than sheep. There is an old Turkish proverb: "Fear the ignorant man more than the lion."


Well said Lodge.  You have my respect buddy.
