    I feel your pain....
    There is something truly exhilarating about digging an item of remarkable value out of the ground.

    I generally make it a rule to never set anything down on the ground near my vehicle. It goes in it right when I open it, or it stays in my hands.

    Left an expensive underwater camera on the ground after a dive once and drove off without it : (

    i had a bad habit of leaving stuff on the back bumper most of the time it would still be there . after a loss or two you learn not to do it anymore

    I ressurected my account just to tell you not to feel bad. I got an angry call from the girlfriend one time after detecting 3 hours past I said I would and took off in a hurry. Left an ace250 and a stealth scoop at the beach...

    I once sold a detector to this kid who wanted to get started MD'ing , as a bonus to be a nice guy i gave him my plastic back up scoop.
    A week later my coob scoop fell off my motorcycle. Ordered two new scoops , a good one and another cheap plastic one for a back up.

    I left a PI Pro once. I'm only a couple of minutes from the beach. Got home, no detector. Went back and it was gone. I hope it flooded on the sob who snagged it.

    Not quite so painful, I've also had someone steal my sandals.

    Just put MD in Jeep, my cousin calls me, tells me about a hotspot on his property.
    Get all excited, jump in the Jeep and take off.
    It's a 30 mile ride.
    Get there, pull out MD, realize I have no digger.
    Either left it leaning against the Jeep or stuck in the ground.
    Made 30 mile trip back to where I left it, it was gone.
    I now carry 2 diggers.

    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.

    I hear ya. After losing my backpack full of $500 worth of MD equipment and supplies, my wife reminded me of the following: "Put your name and number on your stuff so the next time ya loss your sh** perhaps someone will call."
    Yes, Ma-am.

    a few years ago i left my sun spot and my sand shark leaning against the split rail fence at Venice beach, fl. After driving an hour and a half towards home I realized what I had done and turned around, Hour and a half back and there it was leaning against the railing right where I had left it. Busy, busy parking lot. One of the luckiest days of my life.
