    American Diggers in my neighborhood

    My wife came into the room with the laptop in her hand. Did you know that a show called American Diggers was filming in Aiken she asked? (She's never seen this show) She showed me a clip from the show and almost immediately I see a road about a mile from our house as the crow flies. The clip showed where they claimed numerous plantations were in the area and I don't doubt that part. Then Savage is thrown off the property of several homeowners he had approached and let them know that his main priority was finding artifacts related to slavery. Then he finds a homeowner who will let him search for 25% of the finds. A short time later he pulls what looks suspiciously like a slave tag from a deep hole in the ground. I don't doubt that tags are here since I know of several being found locally. I do have my doubts about him conveinantly finding one so soon into his search.The clip ends with his bringing in a piece of heavy equipment to level the ground. I've seen his show twice and that was all I could stomach but I'll be watching wednesday night just because it was filmed here.

    How disheartening. I wonder what he dug through and tossed to get to the bottom of the hole and plant the tag.

    Doesn't everybody find slave tags when they detect around Charleston?
    I thought that was a given? Name:  icon_lolsign.gif

    We are over 2 hours from Charleston Digum, about an hour from the Capital of Columbia. Aiken was known as the winter colony back in the 1800's and the site of one of the last battles of the Civil War. Their were lot's of plantations here and I have a buddy who has found several slave tags around here. I haven't as yet been that lucky but I keep trying.

    That's because your not... drum roll please... Ric Savage, owner of the top artifact recovery company in the U.S.!


    Sorry, I have to laugh at this guy, if not i'd be crying. I just pray to God that the show doesn't get renewed after this 13 weeks of hyped up melodramatic BS is over with.
    June 13... the last time we will see the fat bast***, hopefully.

    I still can't get over the "BOOOOOOOM BABY"....I really want to kick his ass.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    I wrested in college, let's tag team the slob. We don't have to worry about him doing a flying mare from the top rope unless he brings the step ladder.

    Im thinking when we bounce him over the rope he doesn't make a booooom when he lands but more of a splaaaaaat.

    Would probably sound like dropping a water balloon from a tall building.

    Several years. Now I do know of a couple of guys who have found slave tags locally but they've been detecting in this area a long time. I'm sure their are more around here. In the show they graded off what was supposed to be a trash pit and then Savage reaches down and pulls out a tag. It looked awfully clean to me for just haveing been pulled from the dirt?

    I suppose I could be called somewhat hypocritical for trash talking this show while still watching each week , but honestly the production is soooooo poor and crammed with blunders and misinformation , I just can't wait to what he dreamed up next!!! I know lots of you watch for the same "comedic" reasons, but still,.....we are watching and adding to his ratings. Maybe the jokes on us! Well, meawhile, let me get back to my search for treasure stuffed air cleaners......

    The same reason I use to watch Tom Massey do his gold show. He would fall on his Butt at least once every show. And there was the show he put a gold nugget in his mouth for safe keeping and then swallowed it.

    I saw this episode. Total BS. The acting is terrible and the fact that he gets this slave tag on his first dig - and add in this box of prohibition gambling crap hidden in a wall . RED FLAG. Totally staged.

    Yeah that square wall looked really out of place, and you would think that it would have been made out of brick not cinderblocks. Not to mention that Cannon that they "found" in a pond with no serious rust on it...
