Me & Tom finally got out to dig a privy together, first time since spring. He's been AWOL or MIA all summer. We went back to a spot we probed in the spring. Were not sure if it was a trash pit or Privy or anything, it was questionable. BUT, out of the 4 privy's we dug on this lot this was the biggest with the most bottles. over 60 bottles including the broken ones & slicks. Took home about 46+ bottles. Here's some pics.

We dug about 2-3 feet deep & seemed to hit a clay bottom. I thought we were dune but Tom insisted gotta be more farther down, his probe said so. BUT, I dug about 2 feet down into the clay bottom & was finding nothing but clay. Told Tom Nothing but Clay, He said no, he felt bottles or crunch at 5 feet down. SO, I got my probe & probed into this little hole I had in the floor of the hole. And as soon as I tried probing I could feel bottles. SO, Ends the good stuff was still to come.
