Hello, I'm in NW Canton.
Do you know of any good places to dig?
I know of a few & have continued to research where other dumps were. I have one spot that is so mixed that you will find a 1890 blob top, with 1950 whisky bottles & medicine tubes & bottles that said expired in 1958 & old Clorox brown jugs, have found old translucent bottles (slick & non slick) blues & greens. I have more of that story in my profile, found the dig spot while morel mushroom hunting. There's no rym or reason what u may find. I usually take my 6 yr old, so I don't get much accomplished like I'd like. But within an HR & half easily get 2 bags full. No time to really investigate what they are until I get home because she's running around. Or even investigate the area to see the rym & reason. All's I can think of is when the cut the river bank back 100 yrds to put down a parking area they pushed what ever lived through it back to the tracks, then over time as everything settled & eroded bottles are being found not even 2 feet deep. Heck so far Iv only use a cheap hand rake to dig. The ground is fairly soft or I say fertile rich black dirt, then small thin layers of rust & old material. In some cases iv found blobs not even 3 inches deep. . It kinda in public view & u can see where some drinks or kids have busted brand new beer bottles on rocks & trees. But as far as I can tell, no one has digged at it. No pits or holes. And iv kept it a secret, but at this point now I really want someone who knows what they are doing to help & be a second set of eyes & Brain.
