Looking forward to great Digfest, I would like to leave the the rainsuit at home though.
There will be four of us,Vince,Goat,Brandon,and Angie.
I am planning on attending with 5 others, brother, dad and respective wives or girlfriends. It is our first digfest, any suggestions on what to bring as far as digging tools and supplies?
Glad you're attending. Bring wiggle picks, hand scraper, gloves, screw driver and a frame for the finds. I have performed the sun dance so the rain will stay away. Last years supply list included small boats, hip waders and a change of dry clothes.
The Golden Mano was consulted for Digfest weather predictions.
The Mano brightly glowed. It will likely.. be clear and sunny. The Mano is usually, maybe right...

3 total attending Sunday, Jamie
Due to the rain reschedule I won't be able to attend now. That's two years in a row. Really sucks. I have to request time off two weeks in advance so now I have a Sunday off with nothing to do, any suggestions? I was really looking forward to hunting for some artifacts.. ugh.
Thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up just picking up extra hours at my part time job since I always seem to be broke. I also have basically a one wheel drive suv, lol. It doesn't do good in mud.
I missed last years dig due to rain but I did make a trip down there on my own a while back. Surface hunted all over the place for a few hours and only found one sad point with both the tip and base broken off, where as at the digfest 2010 I found 2 partials, one full point and a hand ax. You think if I came down there on my own another time, in a couple weeks or so, there would still be stuff to find? Disappointed I cant make the digfest, but if you think I have a chance of finding stuff soon after, I might drive down and poke around on my own on a Friday (my regular day off both jobs). Or you think it would be better to wait several weeks until another big rain hits to wash stuff out?
I totally hear ya on trying to schedule over 100 ppl like that. What a nightmare. Even though I haven't been able to attend last or this year, I still appreciate that the Chrisners and Austin Diggers go to all the trouble to host such a cool event. Just makes me even more bummed that I am missing it again! lol
Thanks again for any tips!
Actually Hal re: Longs, we almost didn't make out...need to come there and ck it out sometime.
Maverick & Julie Statham will be there Saturday Oct. 6th
Roland and Zoe (Child) on Sunday the 7th. Looking forward to it!
We are still coming (party of 6) and we are planning on camping Saturday as well. Can't wait!!
