    My first target on the sand was the Plat Ring. Walking thru the volleyball area on my way down to the water. Great way to start the hunt. About an hour later this homeless guy saw me and asked if I would help him find his lost cell phone. He had lost it in a very large area and didn't know quite where? But his story was so sweet I had to try and find it. He claimed he had pictures of his dog,Tiny, with Santa Claus that were taken a few days earlier. He wanted to get the pics developed and give them to people who helped him in the spirit of Christmas. What the heck I was going to hunt that general area anyway and sure enough I found his phone about 30 minutes later. A piece of junk with a cracked screen but it meant the world to this guy. Some pics of Mike and Tiny along with other stuff found.............

    Awesome story! Congratulations on both fronts. The ever so elusive platinum on the first target is amazing.

    There is something truly exhilarating about digging an item of remarkable value out of the ground.

    An admirable sentiment, I'm sure wildcarrot will accept your generous money order on his behalf and see that he gets it.

    I'm sure that wildcarrot can afford to purchase his new friend a new phone. Something that I cannot do. May God bless them both and the dog too.
