SUNDAY 05/09/99

WE PROBED A YARD BEHIND A HOUSE THAT WAS A BED AND BREAKFAST IN THE 1870'S FOR THE RAILROAD.  THEN WE WENT AND WADED THE RIVER, RICK FOUND SOME UNBELIEVABLE BROKEN PIECES IN THE RIVER AND I FOUND A NICE BLOP TOP BEER AND A SMALL 1/2 PINT CLEAR WHISKEY FLASK WITH SOME FUNKY SWIRLS AT THE BOTTOM AND A ROUND SEAL, THEN WE DUG WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS A PRIVY IN MY BROTHERS YARD.  AT ABOUT 6 FEET DOWN WE FOUND WALLS AND ALSO SOME RAILROAD TIES THAT WE UNFORTUNATELY COULDN'T MOVE.   THE HOLE BOTTOMED OUT AT TEN FEET AND I MANAGED TO SCOOP SOME BLACK DIRT OUT THAT PRETTY MUCH PROVED IT WAS A PRIVY.  NEEDED A CHAINSAW FOR THAT ONE.  WELL ANYWAY NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE EXPLORING NEW TERRITORY SO STAY TUNED.  I CAN FEEL SUCCESS IN MY BONES AND AFTER A SOLID YEAR OF DIGGING AND NOT FINDING ANYTHING OF SIGNIFICANCE I THINK IT WILL BE REAL SOON THAT WE SHOW YOU THE TREASURE WE HAVE BEEN SO DESPERATELY SEEKING.
