Greg Pickens – Finding America

Greg Pickens has been metal detecting since 1979. He began detecting while he lived at Fort Huachuca, an old Indian Wars cavalry post in Arizona. It was a fantastic place to be a 12-year-old and to dig relics and coins from the days of the US Cavalry.

Greg immediately became addicted to detecting, and soon afterward moved to Germany, where he hunted for the next six years, digging up Roman, Medieval, and World War II artifacts and coins. While he was in Germany, he got a Garrett Freedom II metal detector from Kellyco!

Since then, he has been detecting nonstop all over the United States.
