I received an email early in the morning from Mischa. He reports that he lost his wedding ring the day before while adding new mulch to his flower beds. We made arrangements for me to search after work.
I met Mischa and asked him several questions. He showed me the search area. All of the flower beds are up against a chain-link fence. I started to search with the smallest coil I have.
I searched all of the beds with no luck. I moved to another detector to search his travel paths to see if it fell off out of the beds. No luck. Mischa was thanking me for looking. I told him I wasn’t done yet.
I went back to the beds, on my hands & knees, pulled all of the mulch away from the fence and searched with my pin-pointer. Next to the last bed, I found it. The chain-link fence was too big for my metal detector to find the smaller ring. He was so happy. We maintained social distancing, no hand shakes or bro hugs. The search took a little over an hour.
I love my hobby!!
