Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0284-LSP)


July 1st, 2009

During the last weeks of April I decided to weed the garden at the entry drive of the little chapel of the Evangelical Lutheran Church "Cristo, el Senor" located in Cayey, a town in the southern east mountains of the Island of Puerto Rico. It was a beautiful sunny day, so I really got involved in my work at the garden not noticing that I just dropped the car keys on the field.

What a let down, when I realized, just hours before the evening dawn that I was locked out of my car.

For the rest of the week, me and the church members continued to search for the missing keys, which, by the way, represented a replacement cost of $250.00. Time went by and I still couldn't found my car keys.

On may 1st, I decide to call a long time friend, who has one of your machines, a friend well known for years as a "treasure hunter" in our tropical beaches of San Juan. He has a several success stories helping tourists and beach lovers who have lost precious and meaningful things on the sand.

Ralph accepted my invitation to change the sandy beaches for the country landscape.

To my relief, just an hour away, he and Omegano, nickname for his White's DFX metal detector machine, I was holding back my valued car keys.

Thank you Ralph and White's for solving my problem.
