    Hunt For a Lost Ring

    The weather has been just right, so I called my friend and told him I could make it down this week to hunt for his friend's lost ring. He's been trying to get me to look for it all summer. The site was a concrete truck yard, like a blast furnace during the heat.

    Anyway, went on the hour and a half trip, searched an area about 50 X 50, it was sworn the ring came off the guy's wet hands while he was shaking them off. The area was almost square, the front third was crushed slag work / parking area. Then overgrown grass, knee high weeds, and vines, interspersed with large pines.

    I managed to tweak adjustments for the hot gravel in all metal, and went to work. A rough, but thorough grid search, three times, and no ring. It is a stainless HS Grad ring. The friend wanting me to find it brought along his near identical stainless ring, so I could get a number on it 21-21-21 all day.

    I dug everything above 10 on the F-75, unless it was obviously a can or large piece of something. After three hours I called it quits. I told him I had done all I could do, maybe he lost it elsewhere.

    My conclusion is there was no ring to find. It would have been right on top, undisturbed.

    My guess a truck tire picked it up and let it go somewhere down the road.
