like a harmless if nerdy hobby for people who find croquet too fast-paced maybe you haven’t heard of the metal detectorists who dive with scuba gear searching for sunken treasure Or those who have turned it into a competition trying to be the fastest to speed-search a field full of buried dimes Or those who help police investigationsThe sometimes secretive subculture — there are 900 members of the Metal Detecting Minnesota Facebook site — includes people who carve out a detecting niche specializing in coins dropped on boulevards valuables lost at the beach or artifacts unearthed at construction sites They preach ethical metal detecting They write songs about their adventures And they reunite people with lost mementosNot everyone is a fanArchaeologists worry that hobbyists might damage historical sites The activity is prohibited in Minnesota state parks and Three Rivers parks Slate writer Emily Yoffe once called it "the world’s worst hobby — frustrating solipsistic potentially felonious"Even detectorists admit that they can appear a little weird joking that their hobby is supported by losersBut they’re just like the rest of us — except they never lost that childhood fascination with tales of buried treasure Even if that treasure is just an old cigarette case a long lost Little Orphan Annie ring or a forgotten Hot Wheels car"It’s the thrill of the hunt

from Le Center Minn For Bloomington resident Bruce Langbein the hobby is therapy"You put the headphones on and you shut the world out" said Langbein 66After he returned from Vietnam in 1970 as a

a dock at Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis last October fiddling with the wedding ring she had been wearing for just three months Naturally it fell off dropped through a gap in the dock planks and disappeared into the lake Her husband dove into the chilly water but had no luck finding itSo McKittrick turned to the internet"I just googled ‘finding a ring in a lake help’" she saidUp came Gray on the Ring Finders (theringfinderscom) website a listing of metal detectorists worldwide who offer to find missing items usually in exchange for gas money and a voluntary rewardA day later Gray showed up at Calhoun put on his wet suit and scuba gear and dove in with his waterproof metal detector while McKittrick parked his carBy the time McKittrick got to the shore Gray was done"As I walked over he was coming back with the ring" she said "I was ecstatic"The Ring Finders website also led Patricia Kaufman to Mike Neiber an Otsego metal detectorist after Kaufman’s teenage son lost his iPhone in a snowbank last January in St Paul"I was ready to write this off" she said "I was thinking ‘We’ll never find this thing’"But Neiber 34 located the phone which still worked after being dried off and charged up"I jumped up and down and gave him a hug" Kaufman said She also gave him a $45 rewardChris Turner who started the Ring Finders website in 2009 said metal detectorists also frequently help people recover rings by the roadside thrown out of moving cars in the midst of lovers’ spats"This happens more than you think" said Turner of VancouverHe said his website includes almost 400 metal detectorists from 25 countries who have recovered more than 3400 rings Turner has found more than 500 lost rings himself as well as cellphones and increasingly car keys"The price of replacing keys is insane for some of these new cars I’ve had people tear up when you find their keys" he saidThe rewards he’s received have ranged from $2000 to a loaf of banana breadDetective ‘dirt fishing’ When called for a recovery mission detectorists often find that people have searched with a rented metal detector"I’ve gone to people’s backyards and there are holes everywhere" Turner saidBut it takes experience to tell whether the beeping means a diamond ring or an old soda can tab"When you find someone’s ring you get looks of absolute shock joy and disbelief" Neiber said "People do not believe it will be found"Sometimes metal detectorists surprise themselvesLast October Neiber got a call to look for a wedding ring a woman lost when she capsized while kayaking on the Kinnickinnic River in western WisconsinWading in chest-deep water with a strong current running "I thought there was no way we’re going to get this ring" Neiber said"I went to the spot where she tipped" he said "I held onto a branch I got the signal I scooped it up"Detectorists sometimes call their hobby "dirt fishing" But it can involve a lot of detective workWhen Neiber searches for a lost ring he’ll ask the owner
