A day of almosts

Let me just start out by stating that I am not complaining. That said, I set out early afternoon on my own for the first time in a while. Not that I don't like hunting with other people - don't get me wrong. My first stop was the big ditch. I've known for a while that some work they did a while back exposed some layer, but I really don't like digging there. The teeth are few and far between, and usually very worn. I was right - there was some nice layer, but nothing very nice in it. I did meet some nice people from Georgia down there, though. Next stop was the blackberry ditch. Something just whispered to my inner fossiler that I would do better at that spot. And I did! I found a 4 7/8" megalodon with some beautiful colors! But it had some peel on the front. BUMMER! Almost a killer. Then, I found a big thresher. It, too, was damaged, though. A big chunk of enamel was chipped from the front left side of the tooth. DANG! Another almost killer. This spot has some real potential. I'm fired up for next week!
