NICK EICHER, HOST: Alright, sometimes social media is great!
Bill Giguere was hiking Mount Hancock in New Hampshire—a 10-mile, snow-covered loop trail, 4,000 feet up. He lost his gold-band wedding ring changing gloves and didn’t realize it until after the hike.
It was lost in the snow and Giguere was distraught, as he told TV station WMUR.
GIGUERE: Oh, no. There’s no time to re-hike this today. I wasn’t going to be able to get back up there in the next few days. So, I’m thinking, ‘I’m not sure if I’m going to get this ring back.’
So he posted his plight on social media, and Brendan Cheever and his buddy Tom Gately really felt for the guy.
GATELY: I instantly thought, there’s no way, you know, it’s a 10-mile loop trail.
No way, but, you never know, so the gang went on a treasure hunt.
AUDIO: He found it! Found the ring! Wow!
Good old American can-do spirit, and a metal detector. The ring safely returned.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
