Default Out Hunting With My Buddy On Friday, Today More River Gold And Dino Poo!




My buddy and I did a hunt this past Friday, using our AT Pros. We got a nice assortment of finds.





How's this for a cool car! The bottom was so rusted that I couldn't ID the car. Tires still good though! Any guesses as to what model/year?




Here's the oldest coins dug up...............




Back to the river this morning at 06:00 to beat the heat. I got exhausted from shoveling gravel after about 3 hours.




Here are some of the other gifts from digging gravel.

That dino poo rock is VERY cool! I would probably put that somewhere visible in my house as a conversation starter. Any value to those?

The grill reminds me of the Plymouth Fury in the movie Christine! Quite the land yacht! Thanks Lincoln!
