Game plan of today's trip to Chrisners was to locate a really high producing, previously undug area.
Might as well start right in the parking lot....
Flint is cold as steel on a frosty morn
Under a tree ?
Which leads us back to moving mountain sides
Heres one really surprised frog that was passing the cold weather under a nice toasty warm rock ( drill tip did not tumble out at the same time as froggy )
Where to now ?
No other diggers would think to dig under the main road !
Not a hit & run victim, just marking the next dig spot
I couldn't find a dead deer or hog for scale, just had to use a cheapo sun dial. I got a worked piece
out of every seperate area tested. Just 2 small "complete" worked pieces. Wish I had joined Travis on his dig today....I could have had some homemade Pecan Pie
sorry you didn't find the gem-dandy hal. it wasn't from a lack of digging or trying. anyone that uses carjacks to move rock is serious. but we have seen you do that for years now. fun show Hal. I won't bore you with how good the pecan pie was
nice report H. but i'm just wondering if spyder is the one taking the pics of you? sure looks like he is enjoying the cooler temps. also wondering if you are just cleaning up some of the bumps on those roads, if you are then you have your work cut out for yourself.it is no surprise to me that chrisners is still producing because there is campsite debris everywhere you look.just out of curiosity, how long has chrisners been open to the public.
MARCUS GOT BACK AND FOUND A FEW TIPS AND BASE DUG 5 SPOTS .
Thats excellent Sure beats dog biscuits with cows
Pat,on the remote chance your question is serious.. ..Your doing great with your not so new now digcam..If you want to get in the pic yourself,,,Walmart sells a mini tripod ( about 6" long when compressed } about $10.
With a handgrip like this on the cam it can be tied, bungeed or taped on a tree or digging tool for the best heigth & composition. (using the 10 sec timer function )
I may trying taping it on the dog next time....he so much, I wont have to worry about camera shake
