A day of gems

I dropped Indiana off at his place and met tha duDe at my house. We loaded up the bikes and headed off for Superpit. 10 minutes after getting to the pit, I came upon the awesome little meg. I was already beyond happy, I mean I had already done really well today. Now, I had a little meg to boot. We dug all over, and as I was digging around the area where I found the meg, I flipped up a decent great white. I knew it had potential, but I didn't want to scrape off the mud while it was wet, so I put it in its own little pocket to be cleaned up later. Little did I know what I actually had until I got home and cleaned it up. It was an absolute gem. Unbelievable preservation. Great tip, steak knife serrations, awesome root, and sweet color. One of the best carcharias teeth I've ever found! We split from there and headed to the spot where they were dumping the dirt from superpit. Tha duDe found two meg shamers - he didn't know they weren't intact until he dug them both completely out. What a day I ended up having, though! There wasn't time for Taco Bell because I had to get home quickly. I did some other stuff, cleaned the teeth and sat there drooling over them for about an hour. I've been carrying the teeth around in my pockets all weekend! Then I had to go to Wal-mart to get some stuff for my wife's birthday party on Sunday and I finally snatched the opportunity for some bell at 11:00 pm. How sweet it is!

This is the view of a tooth that tha duDe found. We were all excited about it until we got it out - smashed tip! BUMMER! Still, it was such a great photo that I had to post it.
