Got out with hunting partner "Cal Cobra" Brian, for a road trip. All our objectives/itinerary was mostly "old news" spots. Of varying degrees of past-pressure. But that just makes it all-the-more satisfying to pull stuff from our past-footprints. :cool3: Adds to the story, the shadow box for our site-specific trays, etc....

At a few of the stops, we had some live digs. At others, they are just still-pictures. So this video is a combination of both. Enjoy !

Note : For some strange reason T'net makes you have to click "Watch on Youtube". So click there to get past the popup.


The only correction I have to the video is that the date on my reale was noted as "1797". It was 1796. These sites have given up reales and buttons in the past. So Brian and I were happy to add to the tallies :)

As for the 4 phoenix buttons on the trek (3 from one stop, and 1 from another spot hours-away) : They are all type 1 style 1, common #'s. According to the chart . But priceless to us :)
