after seeing sodapopbobs first question resurrected(bum rootbeer)it got me wondering what mine was. I copied and pasted my first question to this site from 06-25-10..wow have I learned alot since then thanks to all on this site.....CANT believe its been 2 1/2 years already
I didnt want to copy the link thinking if others followed suit it would take up a lot of resources or does it matter. funny after 2 1/2 years still finding them in the river about 75% of my non purchased bottles have come from it anyway here was my first question

newbie has a question

hi brand new at this and have a few questions
recent flooding has uprooted a few bottles along a river bank near me. me and my daughter would walk this trail along the river before and never seen anything, after the flood we walked and found right in plain sight along the river bed two brownie club bottles one excellant and one not so good condition, some old embossed soda bottles one says harry sharp centerdale rhode island, and a eskay baby food bottle and one small unmarked corked flask.
my question is should i start digging up the river bank in the area or did the bottles get washed up from another point,(also found a broken tea kettle (pottery) about 3 feet out in the water.Or should I be digging along the shoreline a few feet out or both any suggestions?

Sometimes the dump is down stream and the glass washes up on the shore down river,or the dump might be in the river right in front of all the washed up glass. We have it both ways.

I joined in March 2008 after the demise of the white forum. The moderator had issues and a lot of "members" were accusing him of all sorts of stuff. It's a shame because I lost some good posts.

I found a May 2008 post where I asked if anyone had RI bottles. With all my posts I'm afraid I can't get back to the first one! I'm sure it's in the digging and finding forum though...

i was wondering about that white forum also? If your relativity new a couple years or so you might be able to search by date and see some of your first few post if longer you might not be able too

I think he is referring to the forum that Matty C. ran back in the day.

Yeah, Brandon got it right. I recognize his name because I bought some bottles from him. That forum had no relation to ABN.

I first found this site while researching two Seitz cobalt IP mineral waters my buddy found in the ceiling of a house he was working on in Western NJ, then I sold them on Ebay for good money. Since I had been a longtime collector of many things from Paterson it got me thinking that maybe I should look into collecting Paterson bottles, I started picking up a few bottles here and there and that led me back to this site looking for Paterson bottles, and I haven't STFU since that time back in May of 2009...[;)]

My first question if I remember correctly was --- "How do you like these IP blue bottles" ?[:D]

oh, that... I came over here when bottledigger.net closed down, it had a lot to do with the white forum... I still wonder if I acted correctly in that situation... he chased all the members away so I called him out... it probably didnt help I guess...

Then he started his forum, put my dig posts on it without asking me, invited me over and made me a member and then banned me and then started a crap talking campaign on his forum saying all kinds of stuff that wasn't even true...

no offense blue pages but bottledigger.net was hands down the best bottle forum ever... I really thought I'd be helping save it by calling him out publicly...

I think mine was did anyone know the exact place of business for some of the Stoddard bottles out there. Like Steven Jewetts, just to narrow down the search area and the likelyhood of finding one. It makes sense in theory, Im still looking.

He banned me, too. He said he was going to grow up and act his age. Then he started in again and I made the mistake of reminding him of his pledge. Goners, I was...
That was a good site, when people could get along...

Who flooded the market with cobalt blue IP bottles which decreased the value of mine?

I joined April 4 2011 hard to believe it's only been over a year and how far my hobby has gotten me since that time I have found Native American artifacts and many other historical items. Back when I joined it was still a "casual" approach to bottle digging/searching now I go digging/searching almost 365 days a year from walking the rivers to checking the Goodwill almost daily. I bet I could count the days on both hands I didn't actively search for some relic from the past in 2012.
