Dear White's Electronics,

I’m not the only one who likes my XLT—the kids love it, especially when I find “treasures” for them!

One time when I was at a campground at the Oregon coast, I found 29 Matchbox and HotWheels cars and trucks buried about 4 inches down in the sand. The sand kept them clean, so when I briefly hosed them off, they were practically as good as new! I’ve enjoyed passing them out to the kids at my church and to my friends’ grandchildren. After I gave a Thomas Train toy to one little girl, she decided that she wants to have a metal detector of her own now, too!

I’ve found a number of rings while metal detecting. In fact, when my three granddaughters were still school-age, they all had diamond rings that I had found. And they still ask me, “Grandpa, what have you found lately?”

-Carl, Oregon
