Phil was gardening in his back yard in Oakland when he felt his ring get pulled off his finger by the chain link fence. Even though the area was small, he couldn’t find the ring anywhere, and he was worried that it might have gotten pulled through the fence to the neighbor’s yard. So he called TheRingFinders.
I arrived on Father’s Day morning. It was clear why Phil couldn’t find the ring: Lots of plants, tight spaces, and lots of loose dirt. I started hunting on my hands and knees with my pinpointer, because there was no room to swing a big detector.
The first metallic target was a large staple that held down an irrigation hose. The second target was buried deep in the dirt and leaves. It took a minute to dig it out, but it turned out to be Phil’s ring. Some recoveries just go fast–this one did because Phil knew the area where he lost the ring.
Everyone went away happy this morning!
