Got out today in the 90 degree heat wave. Luckily with all the heavy Foliage & the lots being like a Jungle with big trees in full bloom we hade some shade to keep some off the Sun off Us. My Usual side kick & digging Partner Tom was AWOL/MIA. Probed a empty lot I've probably probed a few hundred times before in past 6 years. This time I probed closer to back of house where it once stood 100+ years ago. Felt some Crunchy Glass so we started digging. Within first 2 or 3 feet dug out a killer super Rare Schmitts Hutch from Delray now known as Detroit. Pic below. P1010077.jpgP1010078.jpgP1010079.jpg

We dug about another 2 or 3 feet, now we are like 4-5 feet down & only got a couple of broken American Brewing Blobs & some whole slick jars. I stick probe in bottom of floor & my 5 feet probe easily sinks to handle & i don't feel bottom. So we dig like another foot or 2. nothing but white ash, probably been digging threw 3 feet of white ash & looks like another 5 feet of white ash under that? We did pull out a nice American Brewing blob out of wall about 2 or 3 feet below the surface.P1010088.jpgP1010088 - Copy.jpgP1010090.jpg

This hole/Privy seems to be a unusual 10 feet deep. We'll have to try to finish it next weekend. Felt crunch farther down so hopefully some killer bottles waiting for us. LEON.
