    If you can guess what year the watch face is from I'll save the next couple for ya......

    Didn't cut any roots, in fact, take a look at how deep this '44 was.

    Nice finds, Tim. That's a sharp buffalo, seems a few nicer ones have been popping out lately.

    Was there an Ewok settlement in this tree or something?

    Re: Beatin' the wheatie tree!

    NIce digs and even nicer recovery methods. Do you have some sort of machine that sucks them out of the ground and just places them on the dirt for you?

    As with most of my story telling, this one needs beer for proper acceptance or believeability uhh, willingness to listen! I shall buy you one someday and tell the tale.

    Yep, I've mastered redirecting global climate change to my benefit, using erosive effects of inclines and rainfall to expose coinage. Now if I could get it to morph back into the global warming crisis for the next 5 months I could take better advantage of this new methodology.
