We have to be honest, we turned to craigslist as a last ditch effort after calling several rental metal detector agencies in the area looking for someone to help us with little luck. Needless to say, we had really low hopes and low expectations that there were people out there who would actually help us find our ring out of the goodness of their hearts (and of course, as we now understand...for the love of your sport). Thank you, thank you, thank you Jan + Kerry. As we said on the beach, you were part of the fifth happiest day in our lives so far (preceded only by the day we were engaged, married, had our daughter and then our son). Should you ever find yourselves back in Portland, please know you will have two very grateful hosts!
You are a beautiful couple. Congrats on a great ending to that stressful event when you lost the ring. I know you both lost some sleep. I hope to some day help nice people like you both.

Congradulations on finding the ring for the couple. You can be very proud of what you did for them. I am sure you made them so happy, if anyone says to them they lost a ring they will refer you. Its a great feeling when someone shows that much apreciation for your effort to find something for them. What detector did you use on the hunt? I am the same kind of person as you. I would be very happy to help someone recover their lost ring. I heard a story likke that when detecting one day stopped and talked with a woman edging her sidewalk. She told of a woman who got mad at her boyfriend and threw his ring and a guy offered to find it for her. She had told him he wasn't likely to find it , because many had been all over the park with detectors . He got the general location and found it for her. I like hearing good endings to those stories.

Man! I am speechless! What a great story! And was a class act for them to post their thanks on your thread. Just made my day after reading this. You are indeed a special person my friend and a credit not to just all us MDers, but the human species as well. I say, "Well Done Sir. Well Done!"
