THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Saturday 2-16, end of the day finds.
this is not all..4 people had to leave as soon as the dirt was off the table.
Excellent camping cooking...
Looks like Ryan decorated his big ( Idaho ? )potato with every garnish known to man....PEPPER STEAK
Sunday 2-17, end of the day finds
More haste to get away, no where near the complete finds of the day.
For a better idea of the days work, , , , , There were 12 people there, all getting dirt from the same area, we all got about the same volume of finds.
My finds are on the far right...seperated by a slight gap from my table buddy Roberts' ( Robert of Arabia ) finds ... X 6 tables
Great Report Hal, Sounds like a good weekend was had by all. Will you have any more pics from that weekend to post? Did Nacho mention when the next Juno dig would be? Thanks, John....

To the right of above pic showing midden #1
Let the work day begin
Roberts' table catches those first warm morning rays
Blade with a story for finder Rodney;
Rod found a base and walked it around to the tables to look for the tip......Nacho had it ! What are the chances ? After dig layout and inspection has a very low rate of matches ( part of which may be because not every one puts out their broken finds ).
Ron's blade WAS broken in antiquity.
Time flies.... time already
Robert gulped down a and spent the rest of lunch time cleaning his mornings' finds...
Rob has a very noteworthy system....toothbrush scrub in water then drop them in a container of vinegar ( 9% strength )...to soak and loosen unwanted scale.
Cliff hard at work
By late afternoon, people slow down teir working pace, Carol keeps her table team working 100% with the help of a hickory switch
Lee put his better ones off to the side.
End of the day survey crew
Sunday morn begins
Very early find for SH, a diamond in the rough....a very respectable KK
Nacho does not impress easy but he brought this find around to show. A Pandale with a really severe twist.
No one could identify this big point John found... I helped confuse the ID by suggesting that it might be a "drill" with the bit being worked from the base.
A fine needle tip find from Nach
It was a clear warm sunny after noon with very high steady winds...
Only our guest, Robert of Arabia was completely at ease in the swirling dust
Winston did a good job spotting this treasure in the mass of rocks...It's a true atalatl weight. Limestone, notched at both ends and slightly curved
A very high G rating for Rex's Marcos
Frank records an Early Triangle for the memory book.
I walked down to the dig site to see the progress and found a blade that had come to rest on the side of the road.
Cliff was forewarned of all the fire rock. He made a rock claw ( named the "Saber tooth" )by bending the tines over from a pitch fork ( 2 outboard tines reverse bent so as not to catch in the screen mesh )
Even in a dust storm...the show must go on.
John had to leave at noon, these are his morning's finds.
It was a two bag day for SH
This is how the site looks at the end of the day. It's the downhill side
This is the uphill side. Still no determination if the giant boulder is on top of the camp, the digging stopped 8 feet short of the base. there is
still 3 feet thick of fire rock at that point. next crew take note
Wow Hal, that's a boat load of points. That must of been one heavily occupied camp! Congrats on the KK, I've yet to add one to my collection. You never posted a cleaned up pick of it. I finally added a Base tang last week, will post a pic later.
Yeah, Hal, show us a cleaned up pic of it. Looks like a nice one from what I can see.
