About the end of last summer here in Rio de Janeiro I got a call from a man who had lost his heavy gold wedding band while playing volleyball on the sand court in the condo where he lives.
When I got there he told me when he hit the ball he saw the band fly from his finger and land a few steps in front of him in the direction of the net. He had spent at least two hours looking for it with a couple of friends with no result. I told him I understood but I would start the search behind the place he said he was standing when he lost it. On my very first swing I got a solid signal but I thought It was a big coin but actually it was his wedding band. He got really excited about it because, as he told me, he didn’t really believe he would have his band back. The interesting thing about this search though is that that was the first time I was using my brand new Tesoro Sand Shark metal detector and on its first swing it found gold.
