    Took a little trip to NJ

    Hooked up with a forum friend that Ive known for yrs and hunted with last year.
    Trip was already arranged before Florence was on her way - so I had to take
    what I could get - water was way to rough to get in at most of the beaches - I
    did manage to get in at one spot that was sheltered but small and trashy and
    a ocean spot where at low tide a sand bar cut the waves down enough that I could
    bare getting in without getting slammed to much. I'm a water guy - and not
    fond of wet sand hunting much and definitely not into dry sand hunting but
    I had to do what I had to do. I got some junk jewelry in the surf - one silver
    earing in the water - got a gold in the wet sand and right before coming home
    I was heading to my GF after hitting the wet sand at one spot and just swinging
    wildly over the dry sand getting ready to leave when I got a good hit and scooped
    up a quarter that looked like it had been there a little while - so I swung around that area
    and got a few more coins - gal was like 20 yrds away and I told her I was getting coins
    so I was going to play around a little more. I was getting a fair amount of coins - lot
    of dimes and some were discolored so I figured it had been a little while since
    others probably hit there. I then got a nice solid positive reading - sounded better than a quarter
    - I swept at the spot with my dive boot and saw what looked like a silver ring - gave it
    a scoop and was surprised when I saw a class ring. Was hoping for white gold but its 925...
    doesn't matter cause I try and return them whatever they are made of ... but everyone is
    more impressed with the gold. I called my GF over and said "Guess what I just found"
    and placed it in her hand - the day before I told her I thought I would find a class ring.
    She then walked with me for awhile more - I got a huge blast and told her "this is either
    a can buried down or a large kids toy" I swept with my foot a few times and then gave a
    scoop. I hit something and gave a again swept with my boot. I saw powder blue and
    told her - "I think its a car" - she pulled it out (the car that is) - its was large VW bug.
    I filled the hole and then said "I wonder if there is more?" I went over again and got a
    few more deeper signals and ended up pulling out 4 more cars. Little while later
    - even though I was still getting coins - we had to pack it in - had a 5 hr drive back home.
    Before we left - she hit the ladies room and I just looked out over the beach. There was
    a woman on a blanket knitting while her 3 yr old played on a slide near by. I looked over at him
    and he smiled at me so I waved and he waved back. He walked over to his mother and
    then told her I guess that I waved at him - he waved again and I returned one. My gal
    came out of the restroom and I told her I was gonna give him the cars I had found
    she wanted the VW ..don't ask me why - so I gave him the other 4. There was a beach
    shower right there and I rinsed them off and asked his mother if it was okay and told
    her I had just found them down the beach - he was excited to get them.
    The day I got the gold ring - shortly after
    a father with his 3 yr old son were playing near the surf - the boy started to fuss and
    father said "i guess youre all done" Just then I had scooped up a Thomas the steam engine
    toy - it was like new. I asked the father if I could give it to him and the father said
    "Hey - look what he's got for you" and I handed it to his son - he smiled ear to ear
    and then turned and ran towards his mom waving it in the air. Now all I have to
    do is return the class ring for a trifecta





    Most of the trash from the trip

    I did a lot of dry sand as a kid (late 70s - early 80s)
    - back then I hunted for the new dropped coins to help pay for my gas - I could go out and find $10
    in new change and now and then get a ring or 2 - Id get sun burnt - dehydrated - hot and sweaty
    I hunt water and get 10 times more jewelry than I did on land - I stay cool and hydrated
    this is from one of my better yrs - all from the water
    I'm sure if I could have gotten in down there - I could have gotten more rings and maybe other jewelry

    Wish my Excal II had long headset coil cords like in your pic, my factory Minicab cord is short and always tugging on the headset-pain in the a$$!

    The way I look at it anyone out there finding gold is a king, nothing can come close to the feeling of seeing that golden glow in the scoop. Sure makes you feel like a king for the rest of the day....

    That's a nice trip! Everyone got presents. I started out dry sanding in OC, MD then more heavily in Va Beach. I made the gradual switch to wet sand then to mostly water. Like you mentioned, jewelery count rose -trash dropped. Wish I had the time and drive to learn scuba. See those guys pulling up some real nice stuff!
