This is the busy season for metal detectorists. Many frantic calls from people who have lost items while at the shore or swimming lakes.
What are some of the common denominators?
1st. Sun tan lotion and oils make your hands and fingers very slippery. Then you have a catch, dig a hole or shake off your towel and rings slip right off of your fingers. Other take their rings off before applying sunscreen and think that they put their items in a safe spot, like cup holder on a chair or on their towel. They then forget about it and fold up their chair or shake off their towel. There goes the jewelry.
2nd. Playing in the water. The water is chilly and your fingers shrink, making the rings loose on your hand. Then you go boogie boarding, play catch or just body surf and your rings come off.
3rd. Losing weight makes rings loose on your fingers. Then you combine any of the first two scenarios and your rings will disappear into the sand/surf.
If you lose an item, mark the area, take pictures of the area, get GPS coordinates for the area the item is lost in. Then call a professional. Don’t waste time or money renting a metal detector. It takes years to learn how to use one properly. Call 707-706-3626 if you are in Southern NJ, the Jersey Shore, South Eastern Pennsylvania or Northern Delaware.
Have a GREAT vacation season!!
