A man lost his platinum wedding ring while wrestling in the water at a resort him and his family were staying at. I drove out there for a little fun early on a Sunday morning and found his ring for him before breakfast!
I received Seth’s email on the 5th of July requesting my assistance in finding his platinum wedding ring. The ring had slipped off of his hand while swimming in about 5 feet of water near the dock at his cabin over the Independence Day holiday weekend. Seth’s cabin, located just North of Brainerd, Minnesota, made for about a two hour drive for me but I was up for the adventure and the challenge.
Upon arriving to the cabin, Seth took me to the end of the dock and directed me to the area in which he was swimming when he noticed his ring was gone. Using my Minelab Excalibur, I hopped in the water and after roughly 20 minutes caught the tone in my headphones that I knew was a platinum ring. It was such a distinct tone that I had Seth hear it from the docks too. Sure enough I pulled the platinum wedding band from the water and returned it to its rightful owner. I was glad I could make the trip to help Seth out!
I received a call on Friday evening around 8:00 p.m. regarding a lady who was attending a bachelorette party on a house boat on an island in the middle of the St. Croix and had lost her very expensive diamond wedding and engagement rings (welded together) while wading and playing catch with a football in waste deep water.
I was informed that this particular area of the St. Croix is referred to as “Beer Can Alley” and known for its high trash content. With that being said, I gathered a crew of my best guys, hooked up the boat and we headed out for what we thought might be a difficult find.
When we got to the island, there was a big commercial houseboat docked there and several ladies standing on shore waiting for us to find the ring. They knew the general location of where the ring was lost, and had it marked with a tree branch. We got to hunting and within 20 minutes were able to retrieve the ring. It felt great to be able to return something so irreplaceable to it’s owner.
