Eureka Moments, does metal detecting in the hot summer of Central Victoria bother you? I have a house on 40 acre bush block in Inglewood (Central Vic) that I just use to go to for long weekends/holidays. The weather there is beautiful all year round except for summers. They are stinking hot, usually around 35-40 degrees. And because of that I do NOT go there for holidays in summer. And I can't imagine someone metal detecting for hours on end in that hot weather. You must be addicted to it.
