    That is freakin' awesome! Congratulations on that!

    Do you collect any hutches, or just Michigan ones?

    First visit I dug about 20+ whole bottles. but like a Bonehead I didn't plane ahead & bring my usual Wine Bottle Box with Seperators, Almost always have one in the car. So what to Do? Being a Detroit Alley that are always well known to be littered with Trash & Dead Body's I decide to look for a box or Bag to haul my priceless Gems. SO, What do I find? No Box or Bag or Body's but I do find the next best thing, A Milkcrate. Perfect, load up my 20 bottles & hit the road. LEON.Click image for larger version.

    I came back the next day with another Milkcrate. Unfortunately I forget my Camera in the car. I was about to go get it when I seen a bunch of nosey old ladies hanging out on there back porch eyeballing me & wondering what the Hell I'm doing over there digging in the Dirt. Probably thought I was trying to dig up some old Copper Water Pipes for Scrape Metal. Not wanting to attract any more attention to myself I left the Camera in the car. Wondering if the old ladies called the cops & waiting for them to show up. BUT, Being Detroit highly unlikely the Cops would be showing up anytime soon. SO, I dug another 20 bottles & add them to my new addition Milkcrate. But no Pictures of this 2nd excursion. So I post pics from my first visit. When I seen the big W on bottom of bottles I knew what that was. LEON.Click image for larger version.

    I prefer Michigan Hutches but have hundreds, maybe thousands of other bottles, many older Michigan Blob Top Beers & Bottles from others States but concentrate on Michigan mainly. LEON.

    Nice buried treasures you found! Glad you escaped without any problems. Detroit is a tough place!
