Re: 4 CLIFF ASHBAUGH ( LeakywikiCliff ! )

Ok I confess , it was the satellite tracking devise that alerts me to when you get near any place you might try to swim in to wash flint. Looks like Sanderson , where we hunt flint , if you can send me a email , I will send you some pictures of middens like that one from Terrall County , always wanted to see what those mounds from country im familiar with look like , when cut away .!

This original posting brought forward 11-9-12 for the pictures.

This was the test dig 7-31-12 at Juno TX

Nacho Starts regular public dig Nov 17 & 18 '12

Re: 4 CLIFF ASHBAUGH ( LeakywikiCliff ! )

Looks good for two hrs of screening, did the makers of these points have the fine craftsmanship of the folks over in the nueces canyon area?

Sure would like to get out there on the first dig, kinda looks like you could find a bucket full!!



Re: 4 CLIFF ASHBAUGH ( LeakywikiCliff ! )

Just BEAN looking around searched juno named from old resturant,served only beans, customers asked what's on the menu, owner say's
you knowww!!


Re: 4 CLIFF ASHBAUGH ( LeakywikiCliff ! )

S, Oh what a change in the people and places... ....only 45 minutes from Broadway

Straight line, Barks to Juno is 70 miles, look at the difference in terrain. I would say nothing matches the Nueces river quality ( and flint? ) but a full day with a larger number of people working will be more revealing. No matter what, some collectors should be interested in finding artifacts from a different part of Tx from the usual hill country fare. I'll be there.


Learned something new again this morn...while measuring that distance between points I accidentally located PANDALE, I presume the namesake of the points we found on the test dig, 25 miles NW of Juno.

Wait til you see " Juno " ...Anyone who has ever been to "Wall Drugstore " in S Dakota will see a similarity.
I'll get a next time out...
Beans ONLY menu....no wonder they are closed

Here it is...Juno Texas. No more beans ! Note morning rush hour traffic

Look at these mileage signs,,,,, Timbucktoo had similar signs when it was a boom town !

Even more mind boggling is that somebody is opening up ANOTHER cafe right down the road ( note new sign on front fence.)

Photobucket

The new location does not have any road signs yet

Photobucket

All I can figure is that it's tied to the Boom town explosion of Austin Texas, probably a sharp California corporation getting the first jump on the Juno Boom....Should be a Walmart, apartments and a football stadium here soon.
