Wednesday it was raining buckets so I did some cleaning of relics and worked on making cufflinks where I use rifle casings I have picked up on battlefields over the years.
Today Girlfriend could join me so we took the car and went to the fields of rust and berries together and spent some 5 hours digging for rust and filling several bags of berries. There is little better in life doing what you love, together with someone you love. Again I didn`t have a great lot of luck on the finds but that is really not the most important thing either, the hunt is the bigger joy, and getting the good finds is a blessed bonus when that happen. That said there was at least one find that I would classify as very good, and that was a M24 head, empty from the potential dangerous stuff so that can go straight in an Oxalic acid bath once I get some more of that. I also found a gasmask filter, a gasmask cannister, a few tools, another rifle cleaning kit, a Heer axe, a enamelled kettled with several porcelain cream jars inside and two helmet liners, so somewhere around there should be a couple of helmets unless someone already found them ofcourse. Other than thats I dug out some rifle casings, both live, empty and exploded ones, a couple of field batteries and of course some 378 kg of nails, food tins, barbed wires and unrecognisable trash. As dinner time approached I was just closing up a small dumping pit when the first raindrops fell. The sky had gradually become something that could hang above Mordor and as soon as we got ourselves, the rust and all the berries into the car the skies opened up and its been pouring down since. All I can hope for now is that it stops before tomorrow coz I wanna go out there again :D
Stay dry but dirty my friends :)
