I got a call from Daniel in Toronto who lost his wedding band on a company “Team Building” exercise through a forest and pond just north of Toronto on Friday July 29, 2011.
As the group went through the pond and onto a forest trail, Daniel felt his ring may have slipped off, and sure enough, it was gone. Daniel began to search for it in the general area. He told me later that his ring was loose as it was and he had recently lost a bit of weight, which made his ring even looser on his finger. His ring was custom made in Quebec, and was Tungsten Carbide. A Tungsten Carbide ring can not be resized. The melting temperature of this ring is 6000 degrees..!!!
Anyway, he wanted to rent a metal detector from me and give it a go himself as he knew exactly where he had trekked through the pond and forest. If he didn’t find it, he would “call in the big guns” ( that’s me) later.
Daniel came to my house on Saturday morning, and I gave him a quick lesson on how to properly use and search with a metal detector and off he went.
About two hours later, I got a call from a very “pumped up” Daniel who was in shock that he actually found his ring along one of the forest’s paths.
He then drove back to my house to return the gear and then showed me photos of the search site of the forest and where the ring was located. Daniel, wow,..!!! Miraculous…!! Great Job..!!!
You should become a “Ring Finder”…!!!
According to the photos, that would have been a tough search for any of us regular “Ring Finders”.
Like I have said before, “I don’t care how we find em’, as long as we find em”” and Daniel, you did just that.!!!
Again, great determination and perseverance .!!
Way to go..!!
Also, glad you”re out of the “dog house” buddy..!! 😉
Thank you Daniel for a great memory.
