Last night I received a text asking if I would be interested in joining my friend Jay today to search for a lost silver ring. Naturally, I jumped on the opportunity. Jay picked me up at 8;30 A.M. and we were off to Yonkers. Yonkers is the 4th largest city in New York State and is located just north of the Bronx. We recently got hit with a northeaster that dumped 10 to 12 inches of snow in most of the area. A young lady named Sofia was shoveling snow in front of her house and driveway. While shoveling, she would periodically stop, take off her gloves, and adjust her headphones. She stated to me that she believed that during one of these headphone adjustments, she lost her silver ring. With all of the gentle questions out of the way, Jay and I went to work. Driveway snow piles, narrow walkway piles, sidewalk snow piles, snow piles adjacent the parked cars,, all checked two or three times by both of us. I was using the DEUS and Jay started his search with the AT GOLD. He switched over to the CTX 3030 with a sniper coil. The machines were emitting false signals or picking up the cars that were parked alongside the sidewalk. The sniper coil helped avoid some of the false coils. Another problem that was present was the overhead electrical power lines alongside the street. As I continued to search the snow covered lawn along the side of the house, I heard a screech. Jay had located the ring and was holding it up for Sofia to see. I pulled my camera out of my belt pouch and commenced taking pictures. This young lady was one happy camper. She offered to run to the bank to get money to give us as a reward. We would have no part of that. Jay suggested she she pay it forward by donating something to a charity of her choice. Sofia was in disbelief. Jay and I rode back to the city feeling pretty good about a successful recovery and leaving a young lady with a positive impression of our hobby.
