12/5/11 Report - No Upgrade & Poll Results
As you might suspect, the largest number of respondents live on the Treasure Coast, but not overwhelmingly - just a touch over one fourth of all respondents.
The second greatest number chose the "Central Florida" category. Unfortunately, that category was a little ambiguous. I wasn't able to define it well in the poll and receive email from one person living in the Cocoa area asking if that was considered Central Florida. When I quickly created the poll (not the ideal way to create a poll) I as thinking that north of the Treasure Coast would be Northeast Florida. How would anyone know what I was thinking? Anyhow, I suspect those two categories might be a touch off due to how I wrote the poll, but I don't think it is way off.
The third greatest number of blog readers, according to the poll, are from a state other than Florida. I guess that surprises me a little, but on second thought it probably shouldn't. I do hear from a number of snow birds as well as others who travel here to detect. I doubt that either the state or the Treasure Coast appreciates the amount of tourism brought to our area by the detecting hobby.
I'm a little surprised that number isn't higher because so much of this blog is generic treasure hunting stuff and applies to any state.
It is natural that those who travel here to detect would utilize online sources of information about our area. And of course, there is a lot of generic detecting information that you can find in this blog, some of which has been first published here.
The next largest group of respondents comes from Southeast Florida, which has a large population of detectorists who are close enough to make a quick day trip for detecting.
And the sixth largest group of respondents lives on the West Coast of Florida. I have heard from a number of them via email and talked to some of them on the beaches.
Well, that's it for the poll results.
I think you'll find it worth your time.
