SBP ( Standard Badger Procedure )Badger leads off early with a complete Frio
Later on Doc & Jerrys' table,
John gives his big find a bath...
And Bob in his office has a look
Professional screener Lewis gets his reward..
He took the trouble to crack open a dirt clod only the size of as a softball,, and inside was a full Perd
Lunch & show & tell time
Viki had a nice bird pt framed in gold
And Lewis also had a G10 framed in gold.
I showed a nice blade I had found ( the cup cake desert was delicious )
back to work
A crowd at Bobs' office could mean something interesting;
General consensus is that Bo found a Barber point. ( base heavily ground )
All table were in tree shade but leaves not fully out yet...good chance to test run the unbrellas before summer really sets in
One of the directors..." made in the shade "
He who puts baby powder in his gloves gets the dreaded white hand syndrome !
another late Doc find
Last load of the day for me..
A very respectable Arenosa
End of screening day so Bob let the crew " hand dig " some before the hole was to be filled in
Bob recorded some closeups as people found the time.See his website or facebook for more pics.
Here's a true " candid camera "
BOb was taking a serious pic of Viki's finds........ . . . . . . Lewis snook up behind her with some feathers. . .
Unbeknownst to lewis....JERRy snook up behind lewis with some feathers too
Lastly comes the worst part of the day....Having to wash the day's flint finds..
Even the fish liked this point.
After we got out a 3 foot snake swam out from this very spot ( We were so amazed, nobody thought to grab the camera )
BOB now has 2 locations going in the Nueces valley...give a call for scheduling
Do me a huge favor and next time you dig with bob and Jerry tell them I said hello. I lived on Jerry's place years ago and he was the greatest guy. Bob was always nice too and encouraged me in my younger days. Just tell em Chris from San Angelo said hello!
Hello Austin Digger readers! We finally got a chance to have Michelle and Hal out to one of our digs! We had a great time with them and really appreciate their support.
Hal was a Hoot! and for sure he proved that persistence pays off when screen digging. We had some tractor problems and I managed to get the last bucket of dirt on jusst to the edge of his screen when the the tractor played out. Hal "jumped" up on the screen (I'm ten years younger than him and it would take five diggers to get me on top of a screen :), he started raking out the dirt onto the screen and just about when it looked like a dry load... BOOM! out came his pretty Langry Arenosa! Great find Hal!
We look forward to another "Dig Adventure" with you guys soon!
I will have all the photos from the dig up by tomorrow (Tues) night. We returned the tractor to our rental people today and just crashed when we got home this afternoon!
Tomorrow night check out www.diggingtexas.com for photos and how to join Digging Texas! for your next artifact adventure! Bob Mc
