This young guy calls me in panic about hus lost ring a few days ago along Carr’s Landing. I already had a ring find planned for up past Vernon, and decided to add it to the trip. I meet the gentleman in Winfield and he leads me to the spot. A 200meter trail leads us to a remote area of rocky beach. not allot of room for a ring to hide, and unfortunatly according to thus young guy, it was packed that day. Not very
gold news! The report was that he took off his ring and placed it on his chair on a towel. At the end of the day he packed everything up and headed back to his truck….forgetting of course to put hus ring back on. Well I brought with me both land and water detectors and soon went to work…Not a very big area to search, and after 20min. I had nothing. I then start searching the path leading back to the road and still found nothing. Waiting at the cars was my wife and she then tells us that a bylaw officer was going to give us tickets for parking along the road, but that she talked him out of it. Kinda hard to give a woman with a 6 month old baby a ticket…lol. Anyways, I asked my young friend where he parked. He pointed to the other sude if the road and off I went on a whim. Bam! loud and clear and just below the surface of the dirt….his big gold ring!…Trusting my gut paid-off. This young man was sure someone had already picked it up from the beach. Another search with a find not even close to where it was thought to be.
