I'm going to be in Charleston, SC this Memorial Day weekend and I'm completely unfamiliar with the area. Hoping to hit the beach with my Excalibur but I don't know any of the local rules. I would appreciate any help/tips/pointers.

Bring that Xcal and have a blast. All beaches in SC are public. No prohibitions on detecting. Just stay out of the dunes. There is a County beach park on isle of palms and one on folly beach that prohibit detecting in the parks but you can detect the beach in front of the parks. Expect competition as every tourist who owns a detector brings it with them when they come to visit. Then there are us locals to contend with. Folly beach was renourished last year so fresh drops will be the norm. If you see a decrepit, white haired old phart out swinging say high.

I was just informed that I will be at one of my Grandsons High School graduation in Ga that weekend.

I Spent five hours yesterday at Isle Of Palms. Tough to find anything. Got enough clad to pay for one of the two gallons of gas I used getting there and back home.

Be careful to observe parking information on any of the three local beaches.

Folly Beach is serious about collecting as much money as possible on parking violations. They got me for being 19 feet 9 inches from an intersection. Law says 20 feet. Yep $50. Of my clad finds down the drain.

Yes I forgot to tell him to look for the Best Looking white headed old phart on the beach. And most likely one of the oldest.
