    Crazy Tribal Mask

    I was under another house in the neighborhood a couple of days ago and found this interesting tribal mask. The owner of the building has no idea where it came from and why it was under there, but he said I could keep it. I guess I have some research to do in regards to whether it is a...

    Shoreline Walk yields two great sodas

    I had a day off yesterday and was trying to think of a place that I could look for bottles. I used to work off of Hunter's Point shipyard in SF,CA many years ago and remember how many veteran diggers(Cal Digr2 included) have found bottles here. So I found a place where they are excavating for a...

    Id of object guesses?

    Hey all while rooting around in old site dating to the 1880's in Oakland, uncovered this object. Just throwing this out there to see what some of you think it is. My only guess is that it's some type of sign ornament that would stick into the ground? I'm bored and just felt like posting...

    Honey Amber Hostetter's from ebay

    I guess I can say I'm enjoying eBay again. It's been a long while since I've bought or sold anything with them......time can heal some wounds, but I'll probably never sell with them again because of the whole Paypal connection crud, and the associated problems I had as a seller using Paypal...

    Oakland Stream Bank Finds

    Hey All, So I went back to the stream today and decided to search the banks for bottles instead of tackling that large brick structure today. Thanks to Madman about the suggestion of sledgehammering a few bricks to see what's inside........I just might do that later. So in one section of the...

    Anyone for a back breaking workout?

    So I was inspired by Joe the crow and ajohn to get out today and wander through the wooded stream area that had a women's dormitory on the grounds in the late 1880's.
