Yakima County Park Hunt/ESCHBAUGH PARK

  • from Yakima (Washington, United States)

Last weekend I searched an old county park. Usually I am pretty much the only one there, but this weekend was different. There was a group from the SCA, a Middle Ages and Renaissance bunch, who would have probably liked to have been born in the 17th century. I suspect that I was probably not supposed to be there, but it was the last day of their events and I tried to stay out of the way by searching a field they were not using. I was finding the usual clad coins when one of the folks from the group approached and was curious about what I was finding. Apparently the day before they had used this field for staged battles, complete with a portable castle. Sounds like it was full on swords and arrows kind of war.True to form, he was wearing some pretty interesting jewelry, in the form of claws, birds and the like. Turns out he was a maker of jewelry that they used. Most of the things he made were using old techniques. Pierced and hammered jewelry.

After meeting him, I wondered what I might find. I did search the area where they had the battle, but it was pretty clean. I am sure they take care not to lose items during battle. That evening, when they had packed up, I returned and searched through the camp sites and places I had noted they congregated. Those areas were so full of bottle caps, pull tabs, foil ect. that I just used my pinpoint function and searched for only surface targets. By the way, all the trash was not from them. This is a busy park in the summer and my detector was showing most of the trash was at least an inch down or at least not on the surface. For as large a group that was there, the did a great job with clean up.

As you can see, I found a few hammered rings and odd pieces of jewelry. I especially like the silver frog. I also found several heavy metal tent stakes. Nice to pick those up as the county mower would have loved hitting those.The money value of the rings were just pennies, but the workmanship and old world styles were pretty nice to see.

No ring hunts this month so far, but hoping to be sharp if someone loses that special something.

Take it easy,

Steve

Searching for lost gold wedding rings in The Canadian Rocky Mountains… Alberta

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

Hi its Chris Turner from The Ring Finders,  just wanted to let you know that I’ll be out of town on a ring search (5 rings) lost in The Rocky Mountains, Alberta.  I’ll be away from my office from April 15th -19th. I’ll let you know how the searches go and I hope to come home to write a happy blog.  I have a person flying in for the day from Australia who is meeting me and paying my way out there to search for 3 rings that a friend lost last year in February.  I also have a search for a young lady who lost her rings in Canmore. I’ll keep you posted and thanks for reading!

Kind Regards,

Metal Detecting at Kaanapali beach resort

Kaanapali Beach

Looking at Black Rock. Lots of people

Still looking for the big one!

Nice detail on this ring.

Hi from Maui.

Well we finally took some time off and headed to warmer weather.

The Kaanapali beach where we are staying has a very nice beach, and it is heavily used. Between family activities I have been sneaking out to work the sand.

I started with the XLT and was very happy with the Beach program. I have also been using the Surfmaster PI. Both machines have done well.

The first time out, was in the evening, and I picked up a watch and two silver rings. They all look pretty cheep, but I was happy to find them. The beaches are very clean, and it is probably due to at least 5 other guys working them every day. I have met several of them, and all have been nice. I met a local who I have seen twice so far. He works the low tide in the early morning. So far just a few rings and a moderate amount of change.

I took one afternoon and tried the surfmaster while snorkeling. I was able to get many signals, but the wave action has been very strong and I was unable to get down to work through the rock and sand to see what was there. Eventually I got tossed by a big wave, which blew my headset off and rolled me in the sand on the bottom. I decided working the beach looked better.

I found one ring while out snorkeling. It is the one with the turtles on it. Sells for $18 in the store.

I spent about three hours woking the Grand Wailea resort. Great beach, but only a single Canadian coin and a couple dimes ect. That evening was the best sunset ever.

Well thanks for looking at the blog and I have a couple days left and will try the beach again.

Steve
