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.

The wife died, kids were grown and had moved on. The man left a few years after her death.

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.

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.

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 think there may still be some worthwhile stuff out there, as it was never on any maps, and the closest house today is miles away.



Congrats on the find. I’m new here, bare with me.
I live in AZ and found four sights, two dump sites and two old horse coral sights. I’ve made several trips to these sites and always find more and better stuff. The newest site has turned up a lot of bottles. It’s always a new adventure every time. Good Luck and Happy Hunting

He's a trooper--after going thru that rain forest--a paratrooper. Don't worry "Adventure" is Newtothiss' middle name! (Among others). :cool:
Btw, welcome to our online club.
