Rings N Things


December 27, 2013 09:00am

Having a few hours to spare was good on Friday avo but the tide was high but it was still a successful afternoon. After calibrating the machine me and my son started walking towards the water first signal I got was a good one not too deep I was a gold plated ring nice surprise. As we made our way across the beach got a few more signals mainly being old coins anyway another signal registering 20 on the X-TERRA came up digging it up revealed a nice silver ring with little stones on it.

Santa Does Exist

On Christmas Eve I received a call from my hunting buddy who asked me to look at a Craigslist post about a lost wedding ring with a reward. I keep up with most of them and try to help when I can. He said I'm certain that is the Tung. wedding ring you found a few days ago. I had to go check in my can that I throw those rings with little value to me. Sure enough it was the very same ring.

2013 Season


December 22, 2013 09:00am

Greetings adventurers!

That's another detecting season. Much has been extracted from the iron littered ground, found treasures and new friends. This season unearthed an ancient censer which I was indescribably happy. X-TERRA 705 is very good device. It pleased me and my birthday. Second censer (bucket) was found the day after. By the way, it's a tradition. After buying X-TERRA 705 a year ago, Aureus was found immediately. Wish you all have success in findings.  Best wishes for Christmas Minelab! Good luck!

Time is Money


December 21, 2013 10:00am

The weather was bleak dark clouds everywhere but the beach was perfect after the 40°C (104°F) heat on Friday to cool down and do some detecting. I must say the X-TERRA 705 is an awesome machine and, it's a pleasure to use every time. The coins started coming up on a regular basis and before long I had a following of youngsters following me I didn't mind and I answered their questions. The battery symbol started flashing as I was deciding to head back to the car I got one last signal digging it up I was surprised it was a watch wow so I suppose time is money!

Hunting the surf you can see the long face of a person who has just lost something of great value, on Aug 2013 a guy just lost his gold wedding band in waist deep water, well my E-TRAC isn't waterproof I told him but I will look at low tide, well that came and went like 10 times up til Dec. Friday the 13th my lucky day, and for the guy who lost his ring of course!!! He and his wife live in califonia, and told him the great news, well he is still on the floor as we speak, he is ok !!! So Monday I mail it back to him. Good karma goes along way with me.

Excalibur II

his year I haven't been able to get out very often between work and some health problems. So I spent my time doing research on places to detect, which lead me to a little out of the way beach only a couple of hours drive from my home that looked promising. I was working the low tide area late at night and had been detecting for 4hrs, finding a few coins, junk jewelry, pull tabs and fishing sinkers. I was getting tired but I knew the sinkers were a good sign. I heard a very faint signal, after numerous attempts with my scoop in waist deep water I was rewarded with the glint of gold in the scoop. I plucked out a nice Man's ring gold and diamond, 18K weighing 11.3 grams with a nice diamond in the center 3 small diamonds on each side. I was instantly refreshed and continued my search for another 15 minutes, when I heard another faint signal. Again after several attempts with my scoop in waist deep water, my headlamp caught the flash of gold in the scoop and there was another Man's gold & diamond ring, again a nice diamond in the center 10 small diamond chips on each side 18K and 9.1 grams. I couldn't believe that I found not one but two Men's Gold and Diamond Rings. I continued working area for another hour until I was worn out. I found a small copper ring and almost 10 dollars in change for my efforts. There is nothing like that feeling when you see a gold ring at the bottom of your scoop especially when you are alone on secluded beach late night!

CTX 3030 Gold Ingot Viking or Bronze age

CTX 3030

December 12, 2013 09:00am

Having had a lovely morning detecting with good friends I decided to have quick break before heading into a new field. Using Google earth on my phone I located myself and noticed an unusual hedge formation in the next field and plotted a waypoint on my CTX3030 GPS to help to know when I was in the area.

I would describe the ploughing as rough so it was very tough going and after an hour I decided to follow the line of where my GPS was telling me a hedge used to be back towards the car for some food.

International Relations Ring Return

CTX 3030

I went to Florida for a few months for some decent vacation. Another beautiful day as I arrived at the beach about noon. A lifeguard I know came over to say hello. He says someone lost the wedding ring a few minutes ago at station 12. I said I would go look. When I got there, there was another guy with an Excalibur already hunting in the water. I talked to the other lifeguard and she pointed out the person that lost their ring. He was from Argentina on vacation with wife and child.
