My name is Ryan and I've been treasure hunting since I was a kid, bottle hunting for three years now. I have a few things I've dug from the 1800s so I'm just starting to get a feel for finding the good stuff but always looking to meet great people in the field!

I am originally from Michigan and am traveling to Michigan for a few days next week. If you're availableand wanting to go for a dig sometime next week, send me a message!

I will keep you in mind next time I have free weekend time up here. Unfortunately this time I only have today and a few days during the week next week to dig in southeast michigan. If I were to do any digging over the weekend it might need to be somewhere near roscommon.

Got any localities/general areas that could be a hot spot? Maybe some old Bottling towns in the southeast?

With huge Storms hitting Detroit Monday Afternoon , Like a Hurrican, My Cable & Internet got knocked out. Luckily I didn't lose Power like many others did. Anyways, that's why I've been gone past couple Days. I know of a Ghost Towns (2 of them) near Roscommon but with out a Sanborn Map & not many Foundations may be hard to find a Privy? I got 2 dumps near my House. LEON.

I took Mr Cure Ryan out to a old River Dump I found like 10 Years ago. I dug a ton of nice Bottles out of this dump 5-10 years ago. Posted those Finds in here Years ago. haven't been back there in 5 Years. Back then was easy Pickings, like taking Candy from a Baby, Bottles popping out everywhere. TODAY, it was not so easy. Lots of Digging & not much for Bottles. I did get a Pic of Ryan Holding a PH Kling Detroit Beer Bottle. He then Dug a nice Koppitz Melchers Quart Blob Tob Top Beer Bottle from Detroit. Forgot to get a Pic of that one. He left with probably 15 Bottles with Koppitz being the best one. LEON.
