Apex Prospecting Pick ‘Extreme’

18 Mar

In another unpacking video, my dad receives the top-of-the-range Extreme pick from Apex, with three rare-earth magnets built into the pick head. My friend Gabriel thinks the blog medium privileges puns; I don’t know how that is, but I did almost call this post ‘Pick of the Litter’ or ‘Pick a Winner’.

The girls volunteer to help with an unpacking video, not knowing that what they unpack will change their detecting future…forever.

My dad sent me this new unpacking video. His tech has improved in just twenty-four hours! In this installment, two hardrock miners look on as he reveals the postal motherlode.

It has been a relatively quiet day treasure-wise for me. I did receive a couple of packages in the post, however — the CS3MX, as well as a sand scoop and a set of waterproof headphones for beach detecting. Mostly I worked at thesis writing, but I also had a scrumptious dinner with two friends. Thanks M and G!


The CS3MX is Here!
