It was a hot day here, somewhere in the 90’s, but this evening the clouds rolled in enough that it cooled it down a little bit. So, I took advantage and hit a local park with a baseball diamond. I stayed outside of the fence area, and was gridding the field and dug more than my fair share of tabs and chopped up can slaw.
I hunted for about 2 hours, and I was sweating my butt off as I was remembering why I had decided to take a break from metal detecting until the fall when I got what I thought was another poptab signal, but it jumped 18-30 30-32 30 and tabs are usually 32s for me. I was about to leave anyway when I saw a park worker emptying some trash cans and I figured that was my cue that the park was closing down.
I dug the target and about 4 inches down I saw something shiny. At first I thought it was another small piece of aluminum can, but it wasn’t. It turned out to be a Triton Steel band.
I was the only one in the park, aside from the park worker who was a good 60yds away, so I looked around, and not real loudly, but out loud said “BOOM BABAYY!”
It’s a pretty big ring, about a size 11, and fits on my Thumb!
It’s the second ring that I’ve found there in 4 hunts, but I still haven’t found gold or silver there, yet!
Oh well, the Metal Detecting god’s shined down on me for father’s day, I’ll take it! 🙂
