Hey everyone. Just joined up after reading quite a few posts that google search sent me to.
I've been a metal detectorist for some time but have just recently found a very strong interest in bottles.
I'm in Fort Smith, Arkansas if anybody here is nearby or have any suggestions of where to look for any dumps. I've got a few spots I want to check but until this monster of a heat wave subsides, I think I'll just keep researching on google earth and old city maps. Hope to hear from some of you soon. Thanks

Hey Dewfus, thank you for the reply. Seems the hard part is finding the right places to dig!! I was a coal miner for 16 years, so I am very versed in the operation of a shovel. Havent been able to find anything other than the age of screw tops. I'll keep hunting and surely one day I'll come across a good place with some age.
