    *UPDATE RING RETURNED* Thar's gold in that thar hole! Mona's first class ring.

    Last week we invited a woman to our detecting club meeting who has been searching for foundations for years. She's been documenting where all the foundations are in the town she lives in. She has an album full of pictures of cellarholes that we drooled over. :P We love this woman and her album of detecting possibilities!

    On a side note, she also dowses. She taught us the techniques for dowsing, what happens, how to hold the rods, etc. I won't get into that, because I know the controversy that dowsing causes on Tnet. It was very interesting.

    So she talked about her experiences hunting down these old foundations, and she was nice enough to let us hunt her property. She lives in an old house and there is a foundation on her property. She, also, mentioned in passing that maybe we could find a couple of gold rings that were dropped around her house.

    It was freezing cold today with temperatures in the 30's with a wind chill of 100 below zero...but I shamed the guys (girly men) in our club into detecting anyways. Schrecky, Mamo, and I detected today. When we arrived at her house, which was built in the 1800's, our intentions were to first search for the rings for her, then maybe search the foundations which were up the road.

    I started hunting close to the house where there were plenty of signals but.......because I'm a lazy hunter and it was freezing-butt cold, I decided to hunt away from the house with my back to the wind, in the area she said the ring might be in. Ten minutes into the hunt, I got a great solid mid-toned signal of an object 3 inches down. Here's what I found.

    I took some pictures and hurried to the door, rang the doorbell, and showed an astonished and happy woman the solid gold class ring that her nephew had lost before he even graduated from high school. She didn't call her nephew and tell him, she was going to put it in a ring box and wrap it up for him and surprise him with it. She's going to email me pictures of her nephew receiving his long lost class ring. 8)

    Re: Thar's gold in that thar hole! Mona's first class ring.

    Mona is correct, it was very cold. Although the temp was around 30 (which isn't to bad here) the wind was steady at 30 to 40+mph. It was very difficult to walk into the wind so we tried to keep the wind at out backs.

    Mona's find of the ring was "text book". She took it right to the house and the lady was so happy to see it and gave Mona a big hug. We hunted non-stop for about three hours and spent another hour talking to the nice lady (who is 81) and her daughter and again looking over her incredible documentation of cellar holes.

    Mona says we now have enough places to hunt for the rest of our lives.

    By the way, Mona opt'ed to stop hunting before me

    Like I said..it was around 100 below zero.

    I stopped hunting only because I could see how cold you were. I could have detected all day.

    Way to go, Lisa girl!!! I know how excited you must have been to find that ring and give it back! You did good! And I'm quite sure you could have stayed there for many more hours than the guys if you had really wanted to! Love the pics!

    Ah Mona quit first becuase she knew she already found the winner for the day!
    Congrats on finding the long lost ring and of course returning it right away and what a gold mine you all might have with the help of that wonderful lady and her research/knowledge of the area!!
