Good People at White’s,

Well I have to say guys and gals that today will go down in my record books as the most heart stopping, body shaking and my legs couldn’t stop dancing. I’m still on cloud nine trying to tell all of you what happened in my day!

I started out by “Google Earthling” my area and came across a small little park that I had hunted probably more than a year ago, so I headed out to see if I could use the program that angel had posted the other day which by the way it work very well for me and my XLT . It seemed as though no one had ever touch this park sense the last time I had be there, Just in the volleyball court I found a ton of clad and a silver ring and two junk rings the first clad picture is the amount of clad found in just one half of the sand.

I've got to stop rambling and just get to it, I started working an area behind the a baseball field which has a nice slope which runs all around the field ,I thought to myself I bet all the kids just love rolling down the nice green grass so that's where I decided to hunt. It also looked as though parents may have sat there under the trees to watch their kids play ball.

I was working about two feet up from the base of the slope when I get a really good tone, thinking it will be another nickel I pop my plug put my White’s pinpointer in about two or three inches and bingo that beautiful sound we always love to hear!

I reach in with two fingers and out pops not one but two gold rings with diamonds, rubies and emeralds! Well you all can imagine what my heart was doing, well as always after I find something I always check my plug again and what happens?

Another perfect tone another gold ring pops out like they were screaming to be found. Well after I calmed down I had enough, so I pack it in and went straight to a local jeweler to see what I had really found, Two 10k rings and one 14k and all the stones are authentic I'm done spent and tired of typing my excitement so here's a few picture's.

Thanks,

Brad from Southern Nevada

P.S. I love my XLT!
