    First Tungsten Carbide Ring!

    Took my son to a park today for a play-date with some class mates. When I brought out the metal detector I was immediately surrounded by a bunch of very enthusiastic 9 year olds, so I put them to work! After a few minutes of training we were off...

    While I was swinging the coil there were two children walking beside me, one with the pro pointer and the other with the shovel. When we found a target everyone would gather around for the dig. After the recovery the lead group (Me) would continue on while 3 or 4 children filled the hole and replaced the plug.
    I gave each child a penny for their hard work and they were happy to get it, I think...

    This is what we found in 30 minutes...

    These kids are so sweet. They were just as happy finding bottle caps as when we found the ring...

    I guess those kids deserved a quarter found for all their work.

    Nice way to spread the smiles around
    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"
