Ryan Cole's Bio

I am a skilled detectorist, both in the water or on dry land and have reunited several people with they're lost rings & jewelry/etc. An accurate location of the lost item is important, get at least one good landmark for reference. When dealing with lake Michigan, don't dealay, the wave action can move your item quickly.
