    1st gold spill

    Well, they were within a 7-8" of each other. Had less than a dollar in clad and wasn't getting many signals I was swinging towards the rest of my gear and was ready
    to call it a night, when Bam! i get a nice sounding hit and 2 scoops later I get the crucifix. Now I'm thinking the necklace must be close so i swing coil over the dug hole and
    wham, another good signal a gold wedding band with stones. I continued to search for the necklace but no luck.

    5 Min's latter I find the .925 ring with stones. It turned out to be a great evening and my best beach hunt to date and I thought the beach was cleaned out.

    One often reads about these super finds on the way back to the truck and I never turn the machine off before I'm almost there. But for me it's actually allways exactly the opposite: I get the best finds of the day within the first 5 - 10 minutes. Normally I find immediately what I just spent for the parking for the full day and I get kind of euphoric but after the first 15 min it often is over and I don't find anything for an hour or two. You got a fantastic find there, congratulations!
