Adam called to ask if I hire detectors as his partner Sheree had gone over the back fence of their home to retrieve a ball from the bushland and when she returned she noticed her precious engagement ring was awol.
I said yes I do but I don’t generally recommend it since it’s a tool that takes years to understand how to use properly. It’s the detector in your head that is the most important when searching for a lost ring and I don’t cost much more than hiring just the detector! Long story short an hour or so later I arrived, climbed over the back fence and began searching with my Garrett At-Pro metal detector. After a few passes, various responses from my detector and a couple of heart starter’s, I received a strong, clear signal with the sort of target I.D number I had estimated for the ring and clearing the leaf litter found Sheree’s diamond engagement ring glittering among the forest debri. Sheree was away at a friend’s place being consoled so I handed the ring to her partner and his smile gave me an inkling of what her’s would look like when she returned home. Happy New Year Sheree!
