Hi, I'm writing to express my sheer thanks to your site.I lost myengagement ring in the garden last week I was totally devastated.After spending 2days looking I googled asking if metal detectors find gold to my sheer amazement the midland metal detector site popped up I called John who was very helpfull and said he was away until the weekend he then posted on to the forum to see if anyone local could help.whithin half a hour a lovely man called rod called me who was about 40 miles away but could come the next day I was overjoyed as there was no way I would be able to find my precious ring.rod arrived at 1015 and began metal detecting in my garden it was a horrible day and the rain was pouring it didn't stop rod he was in the bushes kneeling in the mud after a hour I came inside and started to make a drink I said to my fiancé "he is never going to find it" with that rod knocked on my window saying is this it by any chance?I was so amazed poor rod had the shock of his life when I ran out screaming hugging and kissing him.what a fantastic man and a fantastic service you guys are doing, many thanks, ar.
Initial impressions of the metal detecting hobby may be that they are just going after lost change at the beach or park areas, but there is much more to it than that, Items that date back hundreds or even thousands of years can be found on your treasure hunting quest. Joining a metal detecting club can put you into situations where these adventures and discoveries can be yours. Solitary metal detecting is how most people see it, but going out with other enthusiasts can be very rewarding. You can meet new people who are already interested in what interests you. Your progress in the finer points of searching will be enhanced by other club members. Advice about equipment, places to go and different techniques will be very helpful for your future metal detecting trips. Sharing stories and seeing what others have found gives perspective on your treasure hunt.
