    I think Fences are more optional, but they are tearing down so many old abandoned houses & Buildings that probably cant supply enough fencing fast enough, This lot actually had a orange plastic fence put up around it but like usual half of it fell over so easy access. Most will have a orange plastic fence, some a real metal fence & the bigger construction sites will usually have a real metal fence & a lot of times a security guard booth & or Security cars driving around. some spots are about impossible to enter unless you can bribe a guard with money or have a good connection with someone.

    That's incredible! I can only dream of such a find and being able to dig it. Bottles OR insulators!
