Several hours went by picking up some of the single signals that covered the place, but nothing out of the ordinary came out from the forest floor. Around lunchtime I managed to stick my hand under a rock and slice a finger open on a broken bottle, so again the little medic kit I always carry with the digger gear came in handy. Having lunch somewhere in a forest, away from the sounds of "civilization", enjoying good food, hot coffee, a chat and prehaps even a cigarett is such a bliss that it is hard to describe. Having new energy we spent another few hours searching the forest, sometimes peeking up at the sky when hearing the ravens` scream and the brush of wind through their wings.
We had planned to visit a friend that lives nearby the site so when time came we headed slowly back to the cars. At this point I found a small dumping pit and began searching through it. It held some rubbish and broken glass but suddenly the first of many gaming pieces peeked out from the sand, and next a rather rare red bakelite 7.92 round. Suddenly I saw blood dropping on to my gloves and smock sleeve. I looked at the guys asking who is bleeding, or is it the Predator lurking in the trees above?? But the blood came from an insect bite on my ear, which I hadnt`t felt at all. Now there were so many flies on my arm and back it was creepy, so I kept on digging the pit so we could get out of the forest. In the end my pocket was full of the gaming pieces, when I counted them later I had 71 of them, including 5 dices!! A rather great little haul.
We made it back to the cars and went for a coffee at our friend`s place and made a halfway plan for another dig very soon.
Keep Smiling, and stay dirty!! :)
