“Diggers” Summer Season Finale Episodes Air Tonight!

If you’ve been following “Diggers” KG and Ringy around the country side on Wednesday nights this summer, don’t miss the last two exciting episodes: “Nectar Vortex” and “Hannibal Nectar.” At MetalDetector.com, we’ve been enjoying the antics of two detectorists, Tim Saylor and George Wyant (aka “Ringy” and “KG”) who have investigated the stomping grounds of infamous outlaw Billy the Kid, and Bonnie & Clyde, American legendary actor & producer John Wayne, an island that is rumored to have pirate’s gold stashed underground, and a historical Civil War battleground at the home of Henry Clay. The Diggers have stumbled upon “sweet nectar” this season while working with historians and archaeologists to uncover relics. It’s been rewarding to watch the hobby of metal detecting actually help preserve and piece together important events in history.

We have big news for fans of the Diggers TV show! MetalDetector.com has just confirmed with the National Geographic Channel, that a new season of the Diggers TV show is currently being filmed.” – Daniel Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com

“Diggers” treasure hunts tonight are truly climatic—with KG and Ringy metal detecting the sites of two of the most dangerous former asylums in “Hannibal Nectar.” In “Nectar Vortex,” the boys head off to New Mexico’s Santa Fe Trail in search of relics left behind by Spanish explorers who were looking for El Dorado back in the 17th Century. They’re also searching for nectar in the mountains surrounding Glorieta Pass, where a brutal Civil War battle was fought. They should turn up some amazing Civil War artifacts and interesting “juice” from the mental hospitals which housed America’s scariest patients. Tune in to the “Diggers” TV show tonight: Wednesday, Aug. 28, starting at 9:00pm Eastern Time.

Sneak Preview of “Nectar Vortex” Episode

The Sante Fe Trail in New Mexico was one of the only routes settlers could travel going west centuries ago. Where there was heavy traffic, there is sure to be nectar (great artifacts.) That’s why KG and Ringy hit the trail with their favorite metal detecting equipment in hand. Spanish explorers were driven by the enduring tale of El Dorado, a city full of gold. They were willing to risk life and limb to find immense wealth. While in the neighborhood, KG and Ringy check out Glorieta Pass, known as the Gettysburg of the West—it was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War on the west coast. Glorieta Pass is also the old stomping grounds of legendary frontiersman Kit Carson. For detectorists who have heard about the missing treasure of millionaire Forrest Fenn, (reported to be worth over $3 million in jewels and gold) it’s no surprise that the Diggers get excited when they get a deep, intriguing signal. Did they unearth a fortune in jewels? Find out tonight!

Sneak Preview of “Hannibal Nectar” Episode

Do the Diggers want to be in straight-jackets? It seems crazy, but KG and Ringy are off to visit a lunatic asylum in “Hannibal Nectar.” First, they check out the Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville with Production Archaeologist, Michael Durkin. This is where Tuberculosis patients were kept in isolation years ago before they found a cure. They’re hoping to avoid spirits from other dimensions as they dig up some interesting nectar. Next, they head to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV, which was one of the scariest places in America in the early 1900s. The first lobotomy was performed there in 1935. Rebecca Jordan, Director at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, tells KG and Ringy about a patient who suffered kleptomania, a disorder that makes people steal things for no reason. He would bury valuables on the grounds. KG and Ringy don’t need an invitation—they explore the crawlspace underneath the building after visiting an open area they call the Hannibal Nectar sector. Don’t miss this spine-tingling episode that airs tonight at 9:30 Eastern time!

Pipe and Cable Locating Metal Detectors

By having the right pipe and cable locating metal detector, it will make it easier for you to find them.

 

Are you in the market for a cable locating metal detector or other industrial metal detection system? These tools are typically sold by specialty companies, although you may see them at hardware stores and other big-box retailers. Michael Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com says “It’s a good idea to do a little research before making a purchase. Quality craftsmanship is a requirement along with selecting the correct type of equipment, if you’ll be using an industrial metal detector on a job site.”

When you need to locate and examine pipes, cables or conductive electrical lines, you’ll want to be 100% sure you’re digging in the right place. Pipe and cable locators pinpoint buried survey markers, oil tanks, iron water and gas pipes, valve boxes and other metal objects buried under dirt, water, snow or ice. They are highly beneficial for identifying potential hazards prior to construction or excavation.

MetalDetector.com offers a wide selection of industrial and magnetic metal detectors and also magnetometers. One huge benefit of going through us is that we are specialized; metal detectors are what we do and we have been here for thirty years.

“Diggers” New Episodes: “Kentucky Lucky” and “Pirate Island Gold”

Wednesday nights have gotten hotter this summer with National Geographic Channel’s new “Diggers” TV series episodes.

Here at MetalDetector.com, we’ve been tuning in to watch KG and Ringy investigate the former stomping grounds of America’s most infamous and dangerous outlaws. Tim Saylor and George Wyant (aka “Ringy” and “KG”) are two avid detectorists from Montana who are on the prowl for “sweet nectar” throughout the U.S. The Diggers are working with historians and archaeologists to uncover relics—they’re helping piece together important events in history. Join the hunt tonight: Wednesday, Aug. 21, at 8:00pm Eastern Time. “Kentucky Lucky” takes us to the Kentucky Horse Park’s alleged ‘Dueling Grounds’ as well as the home of a statesman whose front yard became a Civil War battleground. “Pirate Island Gold” is filmed on the coast of South Carolina with the Diggers hot on the trail for buried treasure left by pirates.

Sneak Preview of “Kentucky Lucky” Episode

Have you ever heard of a ‘dueling tree’? Kentucky horse country was home to alleged dueling grounds where people say men would defend their honor in deadly shootouts. KG and Ringy arrive at the Kentucky Horse Park in an attempt to find minie balls—bullets typically used in dueling battles. This could provide evidence to historians that these duels actually happened. Next, the diggers visit the home of Henry Clay in Ashland, Kentucky. At the Henry Clay Estate, legend has it that the Union fought off a Confederate attack. What’s ironic is that Henry Clay was a well-known statesman who tried to keep the peace before the Civil War. Eric Brooks, curator of the Ashland Museum is excited to have KG and Ringy on hand. Without clear evidence of the battle at the Henry Clay Estate, archaeologists are having trouble proving the battle happened. Can the Diggers lend a helping hand with their expertise and metal detecting equipment? Find out tonight!

Sneak Preview of “Pirate Island Gold” Episode

Blackbeard’s Treasure? Oh yeah…that’s sweet nectar! Only KG and Ringy have access to places that are rumored to contain stolen gold. When the Diggers jump on a boat to Bloody Point on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, they couldn’t be more eager to start digging. This is an island paradise which could prove to be the treasure hunt of a lifetime. Ringy scores an amazing find in a historic hotspot believed to have been the camp grounds for Union Troops during the Civil War. Then it’s KG who gets a slammin’ hit on his detector when he uncovers an old button from the 1700’s. Revolutionary War Flat Buttons were worn by soldiers to show their rank and side. In an area that was once crawling with pirates, the crew gets a hit that makes them believe they struck gold. Watch “Diggers—Pirate Island Gold” on the National Geographic Channel tonight at 8:30 pm Eastern Time to see if the Diggers caught up with a pirate’s bounty!

Tonight’s New “Diggers” Episodes: “Bonnie & Clyde” and “Bleeding Kansas”

Be sure to tune in to National Geographic Channel tonight for two new episodes of “Diggers!”

“Diggers” special summer season is keeping us on the edge of our seats as KG and Ringy dig in to the former stomping grounds of America’s most infamous and dangerous outlaws. Join the adventures of two avid detectorists—Tim Saylor and George Wyant (aka “Ringy” and “KG”) as they break out their favorite metal detecting equipment and hunt for some “sweet nectar” (treasure). Will KG and Ringy stumble upon relics that help piece together the puzzle from these storied events in history? Join the hunt tonight: Wednesday, Aug. 14, at 8:00pm Eastern Time. “Bonnie & Clyde” takes us to an Iowa shootout locale and “Bleeding Kansas” is filmed on location at pre-Civil War battlegrounds.

Sneak Preview of “Bonnie & Clyde”

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were villainous American outlaws—robbing banks, stores and gas stations on a sensationalized crime spree that shocked the nation. They were portrayed as ruthless criminals, killing anyone who got in their way while travelling with a gang during the early 1930s. At the height of their crime spree, Bonnie & Clyde’s gang narrowly escaped a team of Missouri sheriffs during a night-time shoot-out. Sheriffs were no match for Clyde’s sharp-shooting as the gang fled from two brick cabins. Five days later, on July 24, 1933, a spectacular shootout occurred in Dexter, Iowa where the outlaws were hiding. Bonnie & Clyde were surrounded by a dozen police officers and almost one hundred town folks when the gunfire rang out. Bonnie & Clyde managed to escape again during this epic showdown!

KG and Ringy arrive on the scene in Dexter, Iowa with a historian to guide them through the day’s events. With so much gunfire and chaos, the Diggers are extremely hopeful that they will uncover some serious “juice” (ammunition, shell casings, guns or other memorabilia) from this legendary shoot-out. The country will never forget attractive, yet cold-blooded Bonnie & Clyde—and KG and Ringy have a chance to contribute historical value by finding relics from this terrifying crime spree.

Sneak Preview of “Bleeding Kansas”

They say that most wars actually began because of an argument between two leaders or a battle that became the tipping point. The Civil War was no exception. Kansas was a hotbed of controversy prior to the Civil War. The state had to decide whether it would be free or slave (popular sovereignty). This resulted in mass immigrations to Kansas from activists on both sides. Rumor had it that 30,000 Northerners descended on Kansas, and at the same time thousands of pro-slavery Southerners, (known as “Border Ruffians”) poured over the line to uphold the practice of slavery. The horrific battles that ensued later became coined as “Bleeding Kansas”—a precursor to the Civil War.

KG and Ringy arrive in Lawrence, Kansas—the site of a bloody battle that broke out in 1856. If they have their way, the Diggers will find the oldest Civil War relic there is: the bullet from the first shot fired in the battle before the Civil War. KG and Ringy’s first detecting spot is a landmark on the Underground Railroad—a river crossing used by the militia and escaping slaves. They also visit a blacksmith shop at an old farm in Kansas in hopes of scoring century’s old tools, horseshoes, or any other historical evidence. At the Blackjack Battlefield, KG and Ringy get their hands dirty searching for old bullets and gun fragments. Blackjack Battlefield was the first place where the North and South faced off over the issue of slavery. Did Ringy find the most important artifact in American history in Humboldt, Kansas? Watch “Diggers– Bleeding Kansas” on the National Geographic Channel tonight at 8:300pm Eastern Time to find out!

“Diggers” Summer Season Premieres Tonight! Tune in for “Billy the Kid”

National Geographic Channel is featuring a special summer series of the TV show “Diggers.” The treasure hunting starts tonight: Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 8:00 pm Eastern Time. Episode One takes us to Lincoln County, New Mexico, the turf of infamous outlaw Billy the Kid. KG and Ringy can’t wait to put their metal detecting equipment to work to score what they call “sweet nectar.” This could include bullets, revolvers or relics from Billy the Kid, his gang the “Regulators” or from Jimmy Dolan’s gang.

Sneak Preview of “Diggers” Billy the Kid Episode

He was just a kid when 17-year-old outlaw Billy the Kid killed his first enemy. William H. Bonney had a rough upbringing and began his descent into lawlessness when he moved to Lincoln, New Mexico working at a cheese factory and as a cattle guard. Diggers: Tim Saylor and George Wyant (aka “Ringy” and “KG”) arrive on the scene with Billy the Kid expert, historian Drew Gomber. They have exclusive access to the grounds where Billy the Kid scuffles and encounters took place. KG and Ringy search around the Lincoln County Courthouse, where Billy the Kid was held and tried. They visit a saloon where a patron said he would shoot and kill Billy the Kid if he ever saw him. Little did he know, he was talking to Billy the Kid—and Billy shot first!

The Diggers also land at the house of Billy the Kid’s arch nemesis, Jimmy Dolan. Jimmy Dolan became Billy the Kid’s enemy after ordering the killing of the Kid’s boss. At the Dolan house, they hunt for “juice” from the 1870’s and 1880’s. The Ellis Store could provide KG and Ringy with slammin’ hits as it was the site of several gang fights. Billy the Kid lived a short life, but he left a legend behind. KG and Ringy hope to dig up historical remnants from his past.

New Season of National Geographic Channel’s “Diggers” Airs Early August

New Diggers TV Show Episodes – Go Big and Dig!

Fans of the National Geographic Channel’s series “Diggers” will be happy to hear that KG and Ringy are back in action for a new fun-filled season of metal detecting. The first episode of the upcoming new series airs on Wednesday, August 7, 2013. We will be tuned in for “Billy the Kid” WED AUG 7 at 8:00 pm Eastern Time. “Diggers” chronicles the adventures of two avid detectorists from Montana, Tim Saylor and George Wyant (aka “Ringy” and “KG”). The pair hunt together for relics and other treasures in hot spots across the country; they are armed with high-tech metal detectors and detecting equipment. The number one question posed to us when the show first aired in January, which we will answer again in a moment, was which metal detectors are used on the TV show. In the last “Diggers” series, KG and Ringy can be seen searching for Civil War relics at campsites in Virginia, stolen gold in the mines of Nevada and battlefield relics dating back to 1863 in Pennsylvania.

Infamous Outlaws, Villainous Battlefields and an Atomic Bomb Set the Stage

This season gets good ‘n gritty as KG and Ringy hit the former stomping grounds of legendary American outlaws such as Bonnie & Clyde and Billy the Kid. In episode one, the boys go in hot pursuit of historical ‘nectar’ from Billy the Kid in New Mexico. According to legend, Billy the Kid killed 21 men between 1877 and 1881. KG and Ringy end up at the site of a battle between Billy the Kid and his rival gang. Episode two, called “Nuclear Nectar,” takes place in South Carolina at the site where the Air Force accidentally dropped an atomic bomb in 1958. The bomb contained 6,000 pounds of explosives, and the diggers are hoping to uncover some historical “juice” that may still lie in wait.

Everyone knows about Bonnie & Clyde’s notorious crime spree, but what about the chance to get their hot little hands on the site of a shootout? Well, KG and Ringy are eager to put their metal detecting equipment to the test. A historian guides them to places where bullets from Bonnie & Clyde’s own weapons may be found. In another episode, “Bleeding Kansas,” the boys attempt to uncover some of the most sought-after relics. Pre-Civil War violence occurred in Kansas when the state had to decide whether it would be free or slave (popular sovereignty). Violent battles occurred when southerners crossed the border to advocate for slavery. In 1856, a bloody battle broke out in Lawrence, Kansas. This is the site where KG and Ringy land in search of ammunition, weapons and other pre- Civil War nectar.

Nat Geo Producers Meet with Society for Historical Archaeology to Make Show Authentic

The Society for Historical Archaeology has been particularly interested in the show “Diggers,” since historical finds are the crux of the series. The archaeological community was concerned with ethical principles when the show first aired, so they actually met with the National Geographic Channel to discuss how they could make their show more acceptable to archaeologists. The producers explained the challenges National Geographic Society (NGS) faces in the competitive world of commercial television, but also voiced their interest in seeking advice from the archaeological community. What culminated is that NGC hired a staff archaeologist, Kate Culpepper, who partners with the boys to record what they find and where it was found. It is also important to note that the artifacts are not sold for profit. Professional archaeologists say they are pleased with the new “Diggers” series and add that the shows are genuinely more entertaining.

Metal Detectors and Equipment Used by the “Diggers” KG and Ringy

We can expect to see KG and Ringy digging for sweet nectar in this season’s bad guys and battles themed episodes with their trusty Garrett detectors. Both of the diggers are fond of the Garrett AT Pro Metal Detector, an all-terrain unit which is designed for both land and water. This higher-tech yet affordable model will serve KG and Ringy well when targeting relics and old coins as the display screen shows what the item is before digging. They always make targeting valuables look easy, but that’s because they’re equipped with the Garrett Pro Pointer which speeds up recovery time. So as not to damage their finds, the diggers are seen retrieving all of their targets with Lesche Digging Tools. MetalDetector.com is proud to carry the entire line of Garrett Metal Detectors as well as all of the accessories that are featured on “Diggers.”

Be sure to tune in to the National Geographic Channel on Wed., August 7, 2013 for episode one of “Diggers” summer series. You can view the upcoming episode guide at the National Geographic website. They will be adding new episodes and episode overviews as the season continues. Contact us to give us your two Indian head cents on what you think of this new “Diggers” series or if you would like help selecting the best metal detecting equipment for your needs!
