Friday morning around 9:30, right after a 3 hour hunt on Dog Beach, I got a call from Amega asking me to help him find his set of keys he lost the night before in Del Mar. I agreed to meet him on the beach after breakfast. We met near a location where he and his girlfriend were trying to avoid the high tide surge and were scampering around a drainage pipe. I asked him to stand on the spot where he thought was the most likely place he dropped them. Well the rest of the story is pretty short. I started to grid near the pipe and 10 feet in, I got a nice mid range tone. It was a little bling ring! (Target #1). I walked around the pipe, got another solid mid range tone and scooped up his keys! (Target #2). That was it! No drama of finding pull tabs and bottle caps to show him just for suspense. Just two targets and one was pay dirt. Man, was he impressed.
This is a really nice guy and I was really happy I could help him out. Thanks for the nice reward Amega,
