Three Times a Charm . . . errrr Ring!
The other night my phone rang at 10:30pm and a gentleman explained that he had lost his white gold wedding ring. I could tell by his voice he was quite distraught over the loss. I agreed to come out right away and arrived at his business 30 minutes later. Robert took me down an alley to a parking space that had snow but most of it was trampled down and there where foot prints every where. I was told his enthusiastic employees had come to help him find it and kicked around in the snow and one even got a snow shovel and started shoveling snow.
One person explained to Robert that he had a friend once that called someone with a metal detector that helped find a ring. Robert Googled and found me at TheRingFinders.com
(1) I got to work right away I had Robert re-enact how he lost his ring and I started my search in that area. After 2 hours in the dark cold alley, I had only found tons of bad signals, I scraped down to ice every signal but due to the nature of back alley ways and parking spots, all I was finding was foil pennies and junk. I told Robert, hat I would come back in the morning and try again in the light of day.
(2) Arrived back there at 9 am and in the light was able to grid the area properly. I worked the grid in 3 directions but again still did not locate the ring. I was positive it was there but after 3 hours I had to go to work so had to give up.
(3) Robert called me again today and said he had put a bunch of Salt out to melt the ice, I said I would come out and try a third time. After I finished work, I drove over and with plenty of sun light left started my search again after 10 minutes I decided to check a snow bank about 2 feet from the edge of my grid and about 15 feet from where Robert though he had lost it I got a sharp clear signal scooped up some snow at the target site and there it was gleaming in the snow.
I just love putting smiles back on faces.
