Metal Detecting…Lost truck key in Surrey BC could cost $1200+

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

Today just before dark I received a call from a young lady who wanted to rent a metal detector to find her lost keys to her truck.
She goes on to tell me that her husbands friend who had a few drinks hid them under a rock… She tells me that to get another key cut could cost her $1260 as it had a computer chip in it and she only had one key.

She said that it had an alarm button with the key and she was afraid to leave the truck overnight two days in a row.

After talking for a while I offered my service to come out and look for her keys as every place in town that rented metal detectors were closed for this Thanks Giving Monday. I also knew that it was going to rain the next day and that could hurt the alarm pad.

We met up just as its getting dark she shows me the area that the key could be in, and I start to search. The hard part was that the person who hid the key wasn’t there to show us the exact area, I started my grid and after 20 minutes under the dirt I found the key.

This is my second key find this year and both would cost a small fortune to have them replace.

I love my job!

Metal Detecting…Lost 19k White Gold Wedding Band/Downtown Vancouver

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I was at work when I received a call from a lady that I did a search for a few months back, she lost her diamond earring. I didn’t find her earring but I did my best to help her and she said that she’d pass out my name for anyone she knew that could use my service…

Today was the day as she heard about a friend at work who lost his wedding bandwhile playing volleyball at a nearby park. She said that he lost his wedding band while playing volleyball and it was lost in deep grass and he knew the area it was lost in, she passed my name and number to him.

Shortly after I received a call from theyoung man and we setup a time that evening to search for his ring. When I got off work I headed out to Vancouver, I met Chad and we went to the park were he lost his ring.

I asked him where he thought he lost the ring and to my surprise he wasn’t sure…This changes everything as now we might be searching for hours for something that isn’t even there. He wasn’t even sure if it came off playing volleyball, but that would be the most likely place to search.

I could tell at night the area that they were playing volleyball because the ground was packed with foot prints. I started my grid search and within 5 minutes I got a good signal and flashed my light to the ground and in the long blades of grass I could see the outline of the white gold ring.

I called him over and showed him his ring…

I love my job!

The Danger of Metal Detecting Vancouver Beaches At Night

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

The danger of metal detecting the beaches of a night consist of a few things…But there is one that really stinks!
I feel safe of a night when I search the beaches here in Vancouver, I think we are lucky living where we do! You just have to be careful of the wildlife! I was up in the mountains one year metal detecting and I came across a black bear and its cubs…Luckily I wasn’t close enough to upset the mother, she did get up on her hind legs and give me a grunt! The only thing I had to fight her off with was my metal detector…I wasn’t going to use that!

Thanks for reading my posts, here’s a little video of a night hunt on the beach…

Wreck Beach Gold Ring

I received a call from a young lady who told me that she lost her husbands 22k gold wedding band just before night fall yesterday. She told me they were at Wreck Beach(Nude Beach)and she was holding it for her husband so he wouldn’t lose it while he went swimming.

While she was soaking up the sun she felt something bite her on the back so she swung her arms back and that’s when the ring came off. She didn’t see the ring come off but she knew that’s when it happened.

I met up with the young couple who are going to university, UBC. We met at the top and walked down 490+ steps to the bottom to get to the beach. I thought it was going to be a quick search as they were sure they could put me in the exact area the ring came off, I started my search and after one hour I could tell they were very concerned that I wouldn’t find the ring.

I kept expanding the grid knowing that the ring could have launched off her finger and traveled far from the spot. I had the young lady re-enact what happen with my ring. The first time my ring went flying back about 6 yards, the second time it went back only a few feet.

I knew that the ring would be behind where they were sitting so I grid searched hard in that area. Closing in on 1 1/2 of searching I knew I had to think deep and go for the faint signals. Her husband told me that he raked the area with this big beach rake, but couldn’t find it, he spent 2 hours searching.

Because it was taking me so long I figured it must have got buried deep when he was raking the area…Most of the time I’m waiting for the loud and proud signal because it was a resent loss but this made me go after the deep ones and my second faint signal was his beautiful 22k gold wedding band! 8+ inches down.

He was little shocked at first as I guess they were thinking the worst because it was taking me so long. I love the challenge and some times it takes a while but its worth the smile!

Thanks for reading my post!

I met up with the young man that threw his ring away because he was upset and we re-enacted the throw with a test ring and it landed one foot away from the sidewalk & road.

I did a grid search of the full area and came to the conclusion that the ring must of landed on the road and someone found it. Getting mad and throwing your ring happens…I wish I could have found it…but I can only find what’s there to be found!

Thanks for reading my posts… Have a great day!
