Received a call from a man who had lost his 14K wedding band while playing in a corn pit. He had me come out to look for it. Corn pits, for those who don’t know, is a structure, that is filled with corn kernels that people play in. They generally are about 2 feet deep and are very hard to walk in AND very difficult to hunt. As you dig for the lost item, the corn fills in the hole. Its a tough workout!! I devised a box to help prevent that filling in. I was able to find His ring in about 10 minutes. Thats because he called me soon after he lost it. The longer you wait, the deeper it goes and the harder it is to find.
Once I found his ring, the manager of the Odyssey Fun Farm, told me that a woman had also lost her Diamond wedding band the same morning. So I searched for that ring too. I found it within 30 minutes. The manager called the woman’s husband, and he came out with his daughter to retrieve it.
First time searching for a ring in a corn pit; here’s the story…
Chris took his family to a local pumpkin patch last week, one of the side attractions there was a barn stall filled with corn kernels to about 18 inches from the ground, a corn pit to play in. Chris and his son enjoyed the pit and after a fun day at the pumpkin patch, went back home. That’s when Chris realized his wedding ring was missing. He retraced his steps and came to the conclusion that his ring must be in the corn pit. He went to the internet for guidance on how to find the ring and came across The RingFinders. Chris gave me a call, and after securing permission from the owners of the pumpkin patch, and after I fought off a cold, we met at the corn pit this past Saturday before the the pumpkin patch opened for business. It was raining outside, but the corn pit was nice and dry; and the search was quick. It took about 15 minutes to get the reading we wanted to see on the machine, then a handful of corn revealed the ring.
Glad to have been able to help Chris recover his ring!
