Default Oldest Park in Town - silver 2 & 3 FTY

Was out afternoon looking for a door knock when I saw Ed from Treasure Mountain digging a plug at our oldest hardest hunted park. Pulled up and walked over. He had just pulled a nice Buff. Third target of day he had just started.

I grabbed my gear and set out a few hundred yards form Ed. He is on a quest to find a gold before he hits 1000 pull tabs so he was just looking for midtones.

In a couple hours I got some hard to come by deep high tones. Got The 1937 Merc first then two wheats on my way back to Ed who was wrapping up his hunt/video. His gear was sitting on a old concrete pic nic table as I got to him. I was just messing around and got a nice high tone - I actually said Oh, that sounds good...popped the 42 Merc 3 feet from where Ed was wrapping up. We both got a chuckle out of that. He said he hadnít had a high tone the whole hunt.
