Something worthwhile kept them there. Same occupants/family? What changed to cause them to leave? Hmmm. --If there is a well its going to be pretty dangerous. In that remoteness, by yourself?--Nah. Pursue other options first.
Any privy or dump ive ever found here in Savannah, GA ive found with a probe. You can find them on ebay for like $60. Most diggers make their own around here. Just make sure you have a ball tip not a pointed one.Negative
I usually see diggers make them with trunk rods out of old cars. Caddys are ideal. Then they weld a t-handle on and a blob of metal on the end bigger than the rod so its easier to push. Nothing more satisfying than the ting of glass 3 ft underground.I was thinking of just ripping off an appropriate sized piece of metal from one of the vehicles.
An actual probe is on the to-do list, but so are a laundry list of other things.
