I received a phone call from Jim Wren (TRF North Myrtle Beach) about a young man that lost his wedding band on the beach. I called Paul back to get his location. I told him I would be there in 30 minutes.
I met Paul at the beach where he and his partner were staying. On the way to the location, Paul explained that he thinks he lost it in a small area around their towels. He then added that he may have lost it in a larger area where they were playing volleyball. I could see where they had tried to dig around the towels with their hands. I fired up the CTX 30-30 and went to work. It did not take long to exhaust the small area around the towels. We now had a larger area to work. Paul showed me an area where they were hitting the volleyball back and forth. I worked a grid over that area with no luck. Expanding the grid again, I got a hard medium tone in the phones and the numbers on the interface told me this should be what we came to find. It was! After sending the sand scoop to the target I walked over to Paul so he could remove the ring himself. With a great big smile of relief he retrieved his prize.
Paul, thank you for a generous reward. Traveling Mercies back to Minnesota.
