THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
planning on hitting Chrisners on Friday. Does anyone have an updated report on where to hunt there?
Went to chrisners this past weekend stayed saturday through sunday several friends and their family came
we had a great time it was there first time camping and digging
i would have to say perd camp or top camp
i think there are still some piles of dirt from digfest that havent been gone through always potential there
we all found something tips and bases and one found a small almost complete point
hope this helps but anywhere is good at chrisners with a little help from the indian spirits dont forget to make a offering somehow it works lol
Maybe i will see you there, i am going friday myself gonna take my son he has never been digging befor. been digging for two days on my trip but been empty handed so gonnahave to give chrisners a shot been about two years since i been there, but seen soe nice points come out of the top camp and perd camp.
I was there yesterday. Moved a boulder which I wouldn't recommend to anyone ( see "special Tksgvg for a buddy" postg )
High camp has some fresh throw dirt showing....If we use the reasoning that " thats a LOT of work to do that"
Somebody MUST have found something !
The VERY BEST marker of where to dig is get on the elbow of regulars Ben & Hazel or Jessie
Badger & I are heading up there after the feasting but not sure exactly what day yet.
This Friday is a GREAT day to be anywhere at Chrisners to avoid the shopping hysteria
Here's some more of the "black Friday" pics ( in the midden, not the mall! )
Flint has a way of warming up cold morns ..
My "insitus" just appear !
Undercut under a big tree. this is where the big Darl blade was found at digfest..
Badger cant resist tempting fate looking for another blade !
By mid day diggers were hot N happy
Moved to scratch in the shade a bit
That guinea hen wasn't too happy about donating a scale feather !
Surface finds add to the day's total
Just have to look where other surfacers may have missed
well i got to tell you ,your report started out ok what with you guy's getting to the center of a little kitchen midden and pulling out a couple of nice pieces.but then it started going down hill forcing M.to get under a falling tree so you could tell the story of the big darl blade. but then you are trying to convince me that the cows out there eat indian artifacts,it just turned into a pretty crapy report. in which i'm going to give.
very cool update hal. everytime i count out chrisners a new hotspot opens up. looks like even the cows are eating arrowheads...
im still trying to talk my wife into going sunday since we won't be grandogter sitting. if we see you out there, IF i can talk her into it, i still have a loaner wigglepick if you are still without.
Nate we pulled another nice point out of those roots after u left
It was a nice castroville and ANOTHER really nice birdie
who needs a stinkin wiggle pick? well done!
Way sweet Nate. Christners never fails to amaze me. Great find !
Nate your time will come, I will post a pic of the cache I found as well and all the birdies
What a beauty Life is good, in that valley.
I was there yesterday too, just doing some landscaping for Richard
As he was leaving, Jessie stopped by for a goodbye.. showed me a very nice 3 inch square baser he just found "sticking out of the wall" in the valley (didn't mention anything about "roots" )
sorry diggler and nate, i saw nates name under the report and just assumed. WOW DIGGLER way to go. cant wait to see the cache pics.
dont know why the birdies are upside downheres the cache.3 inches above it was a fire pit so i think they was heat treating it and never came back for it,and it went from smallest on top to biggest on bottom
Really good shoooow, a cashe under a firepit
Being heat treated for final finishing seem logical,
can we assume they were Montells ??
I'm game Nate and before I left I found another sweet spot nobody had dug and those "roots" was poison ivy! To bad I'm very allergic
An undug area is not to be trifled with, let neither rain nor snow nor fire ants and poison ivy interfere with your appointed digs
Try CALAHIST CLEAR LOTION from Walgreens.
It's like a clear varnish for skin. within reason, protects from the nasty properties of plant & roots.
