look at that layer...
...lookin' forward to the heart of the garbage, when you get to it
oh, also, when you find the heart... make sure you pop out of the tunnel and yell that you've found the heart of garbage- that should confuse anyone within earshot

...to share that with my father made it so much more special.

That makes a great dig site even better. Look forward to seeing all the goodies as you find them, and be careful out there.

Glad to see you found a honey hole there Plummy, man that crug (crock/jug) is a strange feller hence the reason I like it. Hope the spot serves you well for a long time Plummy

Cool beans man. Can't wait to see how this pans out for you. It's a lot like trying to find sites to hunt arrowheads = time and effort and a positive attitude. On a side note, I miss that big anique mall that closed up in Peoria. Do you know if they opened another one or any other decent shops in the area ? Thanks

Zounds & Odds Bodkins, Plumby,

Thanks for taking us so engagingly along on this frozen voyage of discovery! This is gonna be a great ride, I just know it...

I gotta axe you about this scratcher / digging tool. Looks like a custom made creation. Was it part of the Bionic Digger Project of yore?

I'm eagerly staying tuned.

good luck in your dump here is something to think about , i would save the scrap metal you find it will pay for your gas . but the best thing about taking in the old rusty ugly looking tin . is it the dump will look a lot better when you are done and it will not be as big of eyesore , and if anyone asks what you are doing your going green !. i bring a 5 gallon pail with me . fill it with iron & get more, scrap iron in minnesota is at 200.00 a ton they will buy it if it sticks to a magnet . anyways the money will add up and i have bought several rare bottles with scrap metal money . i have been in dumps that have yielded $ 1,000 + a year out of a dump copper is near 3.00 a lb and brass is 2.00 all old hutch stoppers are yellow brass
