    Bottle Digging book Thanks!

    Wanted to say thanks to all of those who have bought The Field Guide to American Trash. I've sold a bunch on Amazon, and was able to set up at Little Rhody show which was really a fun time to sell books and share dig stories.

    First Dive and Finds 2018

    So the annual question remains, " Is Kevin crazy, or is Kevin awesome for diving on New Years day? All I know is I would have joined you if my gear didn't ice up so quickly. I would have gone to free flow after 2 breathes! Glad you were safe, have a lucky year!

    Dug this WASHINGTON DC Amber strap side- any info?

    Hello all, if any of you are still out there :} I dug this shard while digging here in NH recently. It's Chas. Kraemer Washington DC in yellow amber, strap sided. I can't help but feeling like it would be a really scarce bottle, as there aren't a lot of DC bottles in general. Any info...

    SPECIAL BOTTLE IN NEED OF CLEANING

    I agree with the above, about using very hot water. Very hot tap water certainly shouldn't crack a milk bottle, but maybe start with a warm bottle anyways just to be sure.
