THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Hey! Hello SH Hello Michelle
Just to let everyone know, here at Austin Diggers, like I did when we first opened the pay dig a few years back.
I have resumed the duties as FRL dig manager. A lot of clean up has been completed to make the site digger friendly.
The lodging requirement has been relaxed. No need to rent vacation lodging, just to dig.
There are still a lot of artifacts to be found. During clean up, I found a beautiful Sabinal-Marcos.
Michelle, Sam's Dig is OPEN.
Where is this dig site? Screen or hand dig?
Welcome back Sam !
Just emailed you - Reply there
Frio River Landing (FRL) and Sam's Dig is near Leakey, Tx. (lay'-key)
Only accepting hand diggers, at this time, :) call 830-486-8031
Thanks for your interest.
Thats good news just in time for warmer Wx digging in a nice part of the world.
To refresh your memory of the type of material that has been found at "Sam's dig "....Type in ' FRL ' in the search block above...go to page 2 and start at the beginning !
Hey Sam. It's been a long time. I remember you telling me that you were thinking about opening a digging area across the creek on a virgin camp. Is that still a possibility? Thx
Good to hear from You!
The mound across the river is still there. No plans that I'm aware of.
I read that you'd been in west Tx. lately. Always good to read your posts.
Yes sir. Thanks Sam. Hope to see u out there soon!
Send me an Email. :)
Sam, good to hear your back up and running. Hope to see you down there this summer. You should post a pic of the sabinal marcos you found. Would love to see it.
I'll try. I gave it to the land owner before I got any pics.
He has some pics of it. Maybe I can get him to send me them so I can post it.
We really had some great finds yesterday. 6"Perd, 6"blade, another 6" blade.
5"needle tip knife/blade, and a lot more.
all found by the same digger and SHE left at 2:30 !!! Talk about a hot spot.
Once again, I'll try to get the pics on here.
Whatta half day
Now all we need to hear is that it was the young ladies' first dig and she now believes that's the "normal" finds every dig !
