Over the past eighteen months I've found, and shared a few videos here on Stout Standards....a great many from YouTube. I decided rather than let them fade away into the archives I would add a video link. Many of these videos are very well done, a few not so well. They are however entertaining, and great for getting the juices flowing, especially during the winter months. Enjoy and thanks to all those who took the time to film their adventures....


If I felt the text enhanced the video I included it.....

THE FMDAC TRIP TO LONGLEAT IN 1987

Finally scanned and put together the photos from Longleat. Once again this slideshow will probably not mean much to anyone in the hobby today. It's from a time when all was well with the pastime, and a time I wish I could return to. It saddens me to think the World Council was left to die a slow death. One can only wonder what things might be like today if it were still alive and well....

FMDAC ATLANTIC CITY SLIDE SHOW

Did manage to finally put together a slide show from many of the slides and photos I have accumulated over the years. Thanks to all of you who contributed. If you are under 50 years of age you probably won't enjoy it. As they say "you had to be there".....

TASK FORCE RECOVERY TECHNIQUE VIDEO

Last update I made you aware of the new website for the Task Force for Metal Detecting Rights Foundation, and my good friend and Task Force member, Carter Pennington, has offered up this excellent target recovery video. It's well done, and I hope you will share it with your friends and club members. Once again, if you are not familiar with this group, please take the time to visit their website . I like their style a great deal....

GREAT VIDEO'S FOR V3i AND MXT USERS

Stumbled across the following video on YouTube, and as a V3i user found it very informative. I was also amazed at the number of related videos this poster shared, all aimed at V3i and MXT user's (MXT is my second unit). If you use either of these machines you will find these informative.

FMDAC TREASURE WEEKEND VIDEOS/CIRCA 1989

For those of you who watched the Joe Cook "Christmas Present Search" video (see September 22nd posting) here is the 2nd one he sent. It's from the the 1989 FMDAC Treasure Weekend in Atlantic City. Because of it's length it's in three parts (thanks Peter Cook). Also, because of when it was taken the quality is not as sharp.

The first two parts are seminars from the day session, with talks by Rod Hamilton (Tesoro), Charles Garrett, Gerald Costello (NCMD/UK) and yours truly (my 2nd year with Garrett). Part three centers on the Saturday evening banquet, and if you watch nothing else be sure to watch the hilarious video that Joe Cook presented. When I first saw it I laughed till it hurt, and when I watched it again last week I was still hurting. Absolutely one of the funniest bits I've seen....

I was unaware that this video existed, and can't thank Joe enough for sending. Old farts enjoy looking back....

FUN VIDEO FROM ACROSS THE POND


___________________________________________________________

Okay enough. Joe Cook, Bruce Hazelman and Mike Race came up with the idea that they were going to send a Christmas present to Larry and Lee in Texas. What was it? Detected targets found in their neck of the woods (NJ), identities unknown and unchecked.... Watch and enjoy. Keep in mind that this video was done in the late 80's. I love it!



AND THE GIFTS WERE.....?

Lee and Larry got their wrapped presents, and did not want to wait until Christmas. They called Joe, Bruce and Mike, asking if they could take them to their next club meeting and open them there. Reluctantly they said yes. At that meeting....one container held an 1896 Barber quarter in good condition, and the other a 1913 Barber quarter, also in good condition! Also in one container there was another surprise......an ant's nest!

Joe also sent along a video from one of the FMDAC Treasure Weekends in Atlantic City, and I hope to share that here soon....thanks Joe.

MORE ON CAMP LOGAN

Back in September of last year Robbie Morin wrote to tell me about his interest in Camp Logan, a WW1 Training camp in Houston (see here. ) Metecting this site Robbie to learn more about it's history and he soon became an authority. The Buffalo Soldiers National Museum has once again asked Robbie to share his story, as well as his finds in a special exhibit commemorating the 94th anniversary of the Houston Riot. This special exhibit will run from August 1st through the end of September.


Robbie has also put together the following video....

This is just another example of what metal detecting brings to the table. Yes we find neat things, but we all learn as we go, and often times it leads to a desire to know more. Robbie has been a frequent contributor here, and I cannot thank him enough. Congratulations Robbie and thanks again for sharing. If you would like to contact Robbie you can email him at robert3984@aol.com

ANOTHER GREAT VIDEO

Thanks as usual to Brian Mayer for making me aware of this video. If you are one of the SOB'S (sold on beaches) out there you will enjoy it. I would also urge you to check out the Jersey Shore & Beach Hunters on Facebook.




___________________________________________________________

Ron Guinazzo, past president of the MIDWEST HISTORICAL RESEARCH SOCIETY, has almost become a full time Brit in the number of trips he takes to the UK., and best of all he does a great job of documenting them via video. If you want to get the urge to travel just type in "Chicago Ron" in YouTube. Here are a couple videos to whet your appetite. Thanks Ron for sharing your trips...




Also recommend the checking out the clubs website here.

Another video courtesy of Brian Mayer (again)............


___________________________________________________________

And lastly another neat YouTube vid from across the sea.....

___________________________________________________________

You've heard me sing the praises of my friend Nigel Ingram in Birmingham, Englad, but I found a video that I had somehow overlooked, and wanted to post it here. I have known Nigel and his dad Derek for sometime, and have always been impressed with how they started and grew Regton, Ltd., undoubtedly the best detector shop/distributor in the UK. This video reflects the many years, and a few of the photos from Atlantic City and the Newbury Rallies bring back memories of good times......



___________________________________________________________

Always amazed that so many detectorists today have the ability to not only detect, but take photos and videos as well. As I said before all I needed (and still need) is a detector, an apron, and a recovery tool..........

Having said that, I especially enjoy the videos. I frequently offer up Brian Mayer's (Jersey Shore Beach and Surf Hunters) videos for all you SOB's (sold on the beach), and there are literally hundreds more out there for viewing (thank you YouTube). Just the other day I found a few from France that I really enjoyed, and wanted to share them here. Not familiar with Eric Fouilleman, but his site and videos are well done. Here are a few....



His website/blog can be found here .


For those of you who do not understand French, he is basically saying that the French have the best wines in the world (no problem with that), and that John Howland is one nasty guy, and that you should not believe a damn thing he says (no problem here either)....
___________________________________________________________


And once again the latest from Brian Mayer and Jersey Shore Beach and Surf Hunters (lots more on YouTube).


___________________________________________________________

Once again Brian Mayer offered up a great YouTube video from Europe, and in the process commented that it was too bad we didn't have coin denominations like this. Having hunted in Europe I must agree. The euro coin is widely used there.



___________________________________________________________

Will be sorting through my emails today, and may post some more in the next day or so.....in the meantime four neat videos (3 courtesy of Brian Mayer and all courtesy of YouTube).....



___________________________________________________________

Was perusing YouTube the other night and came across a number of videos by "The Bottle Diggers of Hawaii". Evidently it'a popular show, but not one I was not familiar with. If you are into digging bottles do yourself a favor and check out all their videos on YouTube. Watched most of them and enjoyed them a great deal. Here's a couple to get you going....


___________________________________________________________

Good friend and contributor here, Dee Sperling sent along a neat video I had somehow missed, and want to share it here. It's from the 2010 Treasure Depot's Grand National Relic Shootout .............

A few more neat videos brought to my attention via Brian Mayer, and the Jersey Shore Beach & Surf Hunters.....
