    Better than gold.

    Hi all !
    Had to share. Mostly I've been a dirt fisher but as my detecting buddy told me , "you live in a tourist town with a ocean beach !" So there i m searching the towel line when this kid about 7 came up to me and said "Yesterday my little brother lot his Hot Wheels car" . I ask where ? He pointed and said "somewhere over there". Right in the middle of the beach ! I told him i'd keep my eyes open. But kept moving the other direction.
    An hour or so later i was quickly swinging my way back to the parking lot (hungry!) and was about twenty feet from the little kid and his rather large family when i got a signal that almost blew my headphones off. And there in the scoop was his car! I couldn't believe it ! Huge beach, swinging/walking fast, Hot Wheel size target , 8in coil.
    The whole family erupted in applause ! It was the best feeling EVER ! Felt better than the small gold ring i found a few days before. The only bummer was my phone had died and shut off, no pictures.
    Huge beach, swinging/walking fast, Hot Wheel size target , 8in coil, not looking. And i found it ! I'm still giggling !

    Love this story. You made that kids day.
    Is it the thrill of the hunt or the fact that you get to play in the dirt.

    That car probably meant more to that kid than some returned rings we see mean to the owners. Good on you, man.
