    Located an old Dump

    Hi All,
    I have been researching for new sites & came across reference to a 19th century granite quarry on public grounds.
    Lots of exploring & hiking lead to no good metallic finds, but I did find a very large dump area littered with early 20th century bottles, trash, & farming implements.
    It appears untouched.
    I dug a few shovels of dirt looking to see how deep the trash went, evidence of ash,
    not sure how to excavate without breaking everything
    or how long the dump was used.
    I took one 'Bulloch Lade' Scotch Whisky bottle and went on my way.
    When I started taking photos, I discovered a friend in the bottle
    he has a new home now, the stream behind my house.
    Anyone in central/southern NH wants to check this site can PM me.
    HH to everyone!

    Wish i could get out as half as much as you...congrats on the old finds
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    Thanks all!
    I try to squeeze in a hunt whenever I can while travelling to different jobsites,
    most are pretty short, and I have a section of my truck devoted to clean clothes.

    I released the salamander near the stream, not in it,
    It gets really dry here in the summer and he wouldn't make it far from a water source.
    I won't be returning to this dump site,
    I just threw it out there for anyone interested HH to all

    I have redback salamanders living in my basement. It is a dirt floor, always damp with rocks and old boards. Perfect place for them to live. Along with earth worms and other creepy crawly bugs for them to eat. I used to occasionally catch snakes there until I plugged the holes they were crawling through.
