    Hey Bob. Going well my friend. Weathers a bit on the turn. Lots of rain lately making everything boggy around the place.
    Nah i havnt been down there. I havnt been able to get my ctx on site yet. But im hoping too. The well is only a foot deep with water. Quite shallow for a well. Its an old colonial homestead site that needs mapping and documented before the civil construction can begin.
    My job was to just slowly strip the ground level back down to natrual level so the archy can take a look and note any new features or relics.
    There is a small team showing up tomorrow to go over the areas i prepped today.
