Then it was the large dumping pit. There is some timber lying across it so I moved a few logs to have some space to work, then I chose a corner to start with. The top layers of soil was a breeze to remove, I love digging in sand, and then I struck metal. It was a large sheet of corrugated metal, stuck like a wall from one side to the other of the pit. It was impossible to move it so I started digging the side of it towards the edge of the dump, about a meter across. I spent alot of time getting out some long metal rods and parts of chimney pipes and a large piece I m still not sure what is. When I was able to then remove more of the sand I dug out a large zink bucket full of horse shoes and a pick axe and some other small bits. I concentrated on trying to clear the corner and soon there was something large there again. Having cleared away some more sand I could see it was a wheel for a wagon. Large and made of wood, and it is stuck under a couple of rods and the corrugated sheet. By now it started to get dark so in the small part of the corner I had cleared I threw the scrap metal and rocks and filled back the sand over the wheel and sheet metal so it is quick and easy to get the pit started again next time.
I think this dumping pit will be real hard to dig so I am unsure if I will make it before the winter now. The weather report is not looking very good and if it is correct I only have a few days left of the season. Still, it will be frustrating to wait until mid May to find out whats down there, so I guess I am back there tomorrow.
