    Last summer driving to work at 5:30 am passing through a small village with really nice houses I see a small air compressor next to the garbage cans. Spun back to it, threw it into the trunk to check it out later as it was raining quite heavily. I get to work and bring it in to see if its any good. Nothing wrong with it at all, it still had air in it. Looked pretty new and was in great shape. Checked online and its worth about $250 CDN. The week before I was in the States and picked up a cheap $50 Harbour Freight air compressor that wasn't really very good but still worth what I paid for it. Sold it online for $75 CDN and kept the found one.

    Found a young girl who had tried to dump a waist can and dropped it inside and climbed in to retrieve it and could not get out. I heard her calling and investigated and helped her out along with the can. Very hard to put a value on that.

    A waist can, you mean cellulite?

    Opened the top of the paper recycling bin one day and saw all these comic books, so I grabbed the ones I could reach without falling in. Maybe should have went all in as some were decent like the Amazing Spider-Man #300 and some issues right before that one.

    So far my best dumpster find was a new Keurig and Toshiba microwave. I'm still a newbie in the DD game.

    When I was in High School my friend worked at the local grocery store. He took out the trash on most nights.

    One night I went out there and found that he accidently had thrown away two cases of beer and wine coolers.

    I told him about it when I picked him up from work. He was as surprised as I was!!!

    Howdy all, this is my first post, glad to be here. Years ago found a harbor freight metal detector, should have left that one there. Then I found a discovery 2200, I thought that was a decent find. I caught the detectors bug with that one. So I started to save for a better detector, but then I found a MXT in the can. Not bad. But I'd have to say my best find was a book, that Half Price Books offered me 40$ for, but I declined. I put it in auction and did a little better. $6000. It was a hand written cattle ledger that contained all the whose who of Texas cowboys and their brands. It was from the 1800's. Not too shabby. Anyways great to be here!
