Taylor had been sledding with some friends for about 40 minutes on Mount Hood when he noticed his wedding band missing from his ungloved hand. He marked the logical boundaries (trees) with yellow rope and returned the following day with a rented metal detector but was unable to find it. I arrived the following day and used his pictures and boundary markings for my search. While detecting I fell through the 2 feet plus deep snow multiple times; I too was unsuccessful. I noted the mountain snow base for that day and four days later it was 9″ less so I decided to give it another shot. Once more I used my Equinox 800 with 15″ coil and this time connected with the priceless 14k hand tooled band about 6″ under the snow.
This band, along with Taylor’s wife’s, was hand tooled by themselves in a jewelry shop, so this truly was a priceless symbol of love to one another, and I feel honored to have kept their ‘ring story’ alive.
Taylor, I wish you and your wife many years of love & happiness.
