Lost Ring in Sand Dune .. Zuma Beach, CA. .. Recovered

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I was actually just finishing up an unsuccessful search for a ring lost in Malibu when Dave called me. He had just lost a tungsten carbide ring in a dry sand berm ( mound ) 10 feet high.
After he described that he had been messing around on a sand dune, I asked him to be careful not to move too much sand as this could get the ring out of range of a metal detector.
I was only 7 miles away from Dave’s location and able to meet him within 30 minutes. Another 10 minutes with my XP Deus metal detector on the steep hill of sand I got a good signal almost on top of the mound. A quick dig with my scoop and there was Dave’s ring.
We were lucky that I was in the area. 4pm on a week day is peak traffic time on Los Angeles freeways. It would have taken a couple hours, maybe three hours to drive the 70 miles from the other side of town.

    You are the king of the hill, my friend! Could have been tough and buried deep. Way to go!
