DF08 is gone now what is on the plan book now? There has gotta be sumtin to do.
It could just be tailgaiten some where. Near a hole in the ground with some flint. Just Newyears eve should be once a year. But celebrating our pastime could be more frequent. It was alot of fun but for the planners It did demand alot from them to make it such a success.
Lets all get together more often just less formal.
Was the diggin that hard in the dirt? Or was it just diggin down in the ice chest. I would have loved to do some more ice chest diggin. Next time out in Mineral wells We will come up with several ice chest to Go diggin in. Anyone can come just bring your own ice chest.
Lack of digfests is the mother of inovations. . . .
Choise Smith was at the De Leon flint show again this year. His collection of Commanche metal goods is

with a metal detector. . . . BINGO
A 30-30 casing, bent coke can and 53 pieces of baling wire clips.
