Manhole Cover
« on: May 30, 2018, 03:16:55 PM »
How do you lose a manhole cover ?  lol  (a hole in your pocket ?)

Got a call from the Pastor of a church at Lone Elm and College.  Seems as when they were building College Blvd. in Olathe, they graded the dirt right over the  old manhole.  The Church was needing some work done and had to find the manhole.  The Pastor had a pretty good idea where it was.  He had figured a straight line about 150 feet long and said it should be somewhere along that line.  I had only searched about 3 or 4 feet when I got a big overload.  The Pastor was manning the shovel in the rock hard dirt and went down about 6 or 8 inches when he stuck the cover.
Pastor said he found us when he checked for metal detecting websites.  He thanked us for helping.
