HI everyone!!!! I was contacted by John about his wedding band that was lost while swimming through some rapids in a river and wondering if it was possible to find. Possible scenarios and questions go through your mind like— what is the depth of the river? What is the current like? Was the ring actually lost in the river? Is the river bottom rocky or sandy? Are their hazards I can’t see? All legitimate questions you ask yourself and than ask the party that lost the ring.
So here we go— I met John and Christine at the location where the ring was lost, and learned John’s ring was a match to Christine’s ring (not the same size just looks) so finding it was really important to them. All 3 of us entered the cold water and I started detecting while they put on masks and snorkels and looked visually. It took about 5 min when I heard that low tone of gold and I could see a white rim of a ring in the sandy part of a 4ft deep area. Christine came over and plucked the ring off the river bottom where it had laid for the past 2 weeks. I was amazed it only took a couple minutes to find and so were they. With the ring recovered all 3 of us started searching for other dropped items. 3 pairs of sunglasses (1 was a pair of green ray bans), 2 fully functioning watches and other small sinkers and a 1973 quarter.
After getting out of the river we heard a crack and a crash and not 50 yards upstream a large tree fell into the river. You never know what the day will bring so go and make someone smile.
Oh the best part is the couples smile. I want to thank them for the generous reward. Stay safe out there!
Oh there is a mountain range in my blog can you find it?
