Today I took my time and checked every signal as I walked to the dumping pit. The amount of Iron and Mixed signal was staggering and I walked more on my knees than on my feet. 99% of the signals was rubbish. Nails, bits of fence wire, barbed wire and just pieces of metal, it drove me a little bit insane.
I dug out alot of the dumping pit, after getting through the roots it was easy, just rocky and sandy soil. It looks like the corner I dug yesterday held the more interesting things on this side of the pit, coz today I got out mostly lenghts of wire and tons of food tins. A nice tent peg almost on the bottom of the pit made the job worth it though.
Now, come dawn so I can get out there again :)
