4x4 Off-road Vehicle For Metal Detecting Trips

4-Wheel Drive (4wd) Vehicle is Essential for Treasure Hunting Expeditions, page 1

From my own treasure hunting experiences, I can say that many productive "hot" detecting sites would not be that easy to get to. In many cases, there is only one path leading to the location, and you do not have a choice but to try your luck getting through.

If you take a regular car as your expedition vehicle on the metal detecting trips to remote areas, you are taking a high chance of getting yourself into real trouble.

But it would be wiser to have a Jeep, 4x4 pickup truck, SUV (sport utility vehicle) or any 4-wheel drive vehicle to get to some lucrative sites without getting stuck en route.
