    Roadside Assistance

    I was browsing the local trader group on Facebook a few weeks back and ran across someone wanting to buy a metal detector. I replied asking if they wanted an entry level machine or a high end detector. They replied something cheap to find her husbands wedding ring and they were desperate to find it.

    I asked if he had a good idea where he lost it.

    Turns out he swatted at a bug while driving home from work at 2:00 am and his ring flew out the window. After talking to them I told them I would drive out and see if I could find it for them. I've recovered rings for over 30 years for people but I was skeptical about this one since it was ejected from a moving vehicle but heck, I love a challenge.

    After a 37 mile drive, estimating where the ring might have ended up at 45 MPH and 20 minutes detecting a roadside ditch I recovered his wedding ring. It made me happy to see her cry and be overcome with emotion when I found it.

    I always love the challenge of recovering a lost wedding ring.
