A little background info about “Down In The Dumps-Part 1”
I have heard stories of this dump for quite some time, but was not 100% sure exactly where it was. There is another dump I am going to try and locate later this fall after it cools off, will keep you posted.
Anyway, I took my metal detector out the other day to try and find this dump. After about 30 minutes, I got a large hit on the detector, there was no sign of a dump on the surface, but I figured it was the dump because of the large area I got readings. These photos are after a couple of shovel fulls of top soil removed.
I carry a camera with me all the time when I am poking around, I like to photograph my finds. As you can see, nothing of great value so far, old silverware, broken doll parts, cartridges, and lots of unidentifiable items.
Thank goodness my wife is very tolerant of me digging out old trash dumps, outhouse pits, cisterns, crawling under old buildings, etc.
I will post more of the results as they become available.
