Its not just rings and keys.
And sometimes we are in the right place at the right time. Wallet found with $390.00 cash, his last 2 paychecks @ $400+ . Tracked him down and handed him his wallet with every dollar still in it.
Do the right thing even if no one is looking.
Got a call from a man who said I lost my ring on the beach, can you help me.?
I will do my best. Ask all the questions and head down to meet him. As we walk down he says he thinks its about a 10’x10′ area. After 4 or 5 passed I get it. A beautifull heavy Gold wedding band. Another ring saved and another smile made. Read the rest of this entry »
Got a lost ring call in the middle of saying goodby to a dear friend. Can u come right now? No but I will be down in 1 1/2 hrs. One hr later, can u come now ? So we were almost done so I said I would be there in 20 min.
I get to an over crowded beach and find parking, grab the PI and water scoop and head over. I am met half way by a very sad man. Its in the water, do you think there’s a chance of finding it ? Hell yes knee deep, no problem…
As I start my search there are a ton of people coming over to watch. He shows me where he was, or thinks he was. After about 10 min Im looking at tide line and I start working into the ankle deep area and low and behold, bang.. I scoop it and walk outa the water, turn to him and ask, Whats it look like… he he. ( YEP ) here you go.
Cheers from the crowd make it really cool, as we walk thru to our cars I hear, Great Job “RingFinder ”
I LOVE THIS FEELING.
Just after my late shower I see a voice mail, a young lady asking if I could help them find a ring in the sand. 6 or more people on hand and knee’s for hours could not find it. Took a bit for us to talk and I was on my way.
As I get my gear out and head to 18 th st I see three ladies waiting. Few min talk and we are walking down to area of loss. Ok its somewhere in this 20 x20 with one lady to my right sayin Like right here. I turn on the detector and say ok 5 min. I started at the far side of where she said and 30 sec, bam.
They all just look as I scoop, miss and scoop again and shake. Yep there is the ring. Not always this fast but sure made TheRingFinders.com look good.
Another happy family and the Word spreads, TheRingFinders.com is WORLD WIDE. Read the rest of this entry »
Got a call from a local lifegaurd, there’s a lady tryin to find her husbands ring lost in front of tower number (x) if you close by.
I’m 5 min away I’ll head that way. As I start down the stairs I see a lady with a couple small boys and one little girl kicking sand around. As I get close she see’s me walking over with detector in hand. She was shocked I showed up without her calling me. I got the story and started to grid. Didnt take long but was out of her search area just a bit. The two boys had been refering to me as Mr John durning our time together. What a TREAT.
The Ring goes back to her husband but Read the rest of this entry »
I was just geeting ready for a water hunt when I saw a Ring post with a phone number. Ah what the hell, I’ll call him. Rob answered and seemed to know about our group TheRingFinders.com I asked if he could meet me asap and we both headed to the area. 10 min later I walk down to the area to meet him and I see another detector guy 100 yds down the beach but headed the other way so I went and introduced myself. Wow we kinda know of each other, its a small world. Asked if he found anything back in the area he just went thru. Said no so I let him know if he did, reward is his. He smiled and replied I wish.
My phone rings and its Rob, I can see him coning down the beach on his phone. I say Goodby to this man and head over. Rob shows the area so we make lines (big square) and I start to gid. Almost covered the area when Rob says, We might have been alittle more over there. An extra 10×20, so I do one pass thru turn and BEEP BEEP, I knew I had it. When u scoop a Plat ring you know it. I turned my back and said whats it look like. 100% his.
I think he was a little bit in shock thinking no way in hell will he every see it again. He had brought his young son with him and they’ll have this story between them for life. I am STOKED to be a part of this….
