Last Thursday at 730 pm, just when I was getting ready to start a meeting for the “Original California Searchers”, my phone rings.  Its a gentleman name Tony and while coaching his son’s soccer team he had lost his wedding ring.  He had purchased a metal detector, at a local store, and was not able to find the ring on his own.  So he googled “lost ring” and came apon “The Ring Finders”. He asked if I could help him.  I sat up a time to meet the next day.  We met at the park and Tony went over what he done and where the previous day.  I spent 15 to 20 minutes searching the area he played goalie to get a feel for the trash level, and to see if I could get a little lucky.

I determined I would need to set up a grid  and use a smaller loop(to many pull tabs and coins).  I set up the grid and dug everything that was in the gold range and with in 3 inches of the surface.  I found a half dozen targets, but no ring in the first three rolls.  I dug a couple of quarters on a second sweep just to make sure I was getting good readings(I felt the ring would be in one of these rows).

Then I searched the last row of my first grid.  Near the center, of my fist grid pattern’s fourth row, I got a solid 45 on the surface.  It was Tony’s  ring (the last row in fact),  I got a solid 45 near the surface.   Tony did a good job of putting me in the right area.   Oh by the way, I did have aconcern that the park might of be searched in morning by the retired gang.  A group of reired men that go out and hunt in the morning.  They hunt dublin parks mostly.

About 6:20 last night(30th) I get a e-mail titled “lost ring in backyard” .  A gentleman asked if I could search for his ring.  I responded “love to”.  After a e-mail exchange We met up at his house.  He was making mud packs with his daughter, and it came off.

Well I thought it would be a quick scan and done.  I picked up two spots that had the right sound but not vary easy to repeat.  I choose the one that had the best tone.  It turned out to be aluminum and nails.  The second spot had sounded like iron nails with a little hint of foil.   I pin pointed and came up a nail.  I swepted the hole again, and this time it sounded more like gold.  But I got another nail.  So I re-pin pointed and this time I came up with the wedding ring.

I was surprized by the amount of nails in a spot that the gentleman and his daughter had just used to make mud.
