My recovery call season is in full swing. This is call #6 since July 4. I average about 20 calls a year.
I received a call from Kyle about him losing his 18k Gold ring that Kyle inherited from his grandfather. Kyle and his wife have been married a short time, and the Ring is missing.
Kyle and his wife were kayaking in Lake Michigan at a beach in Northport, Mi. Kyle noticed his ring was missing at the end of the day. He thought back to what he thought could have happened. He thought the ring must have flown off a shirt he set the ring on earlier in the day.
I loaded things up in my vehicle and drove to Onomonee rd Beach in Northport, Mi. I told Kyle I would text him when I was about 20 minutes away. I texted Kyle, and he said they were running about 10 minutes behind me. FYI to other people losing rings. If you let me get there before you and I find the Ring, your probably going to get messed with. I hurried down to the beach with my CTX3030 with the 17″ coil and found the ring after about 3 minutes. Three women sat by where I found the ring and asked what I had found. I told them a gold wedding ring, and the owner is about 5 minutes away. I asked them if I should mess with him, and they all agreed with three yeses. I had 8 of the 4-foot snow plow stakes with me and set them up in the sand spread out. I put his ring over one of the stakes and let it fall below the sand. When Kyle arrived, I had him tell me what had happened, and he took me to the exact spot I found the ring. I told Kyle I had already found the ring, and he was also going on a Treasure hunt today. I gave him my Garrott pinpointer and told him his Ring was around one of the stakes. He thought that was hilarious and started searching for the Ring. After checking 3 of the stakes, the ring was around the 4th stake. He was glad the pressure of losing the ring was gone because the ring was found. He mentioned he didn’t want to tell his parent he had lost the ring.
It was an easy search in the dry sand on a lovely Sunday afternoon.
