Bushwacking Top Secret Style

Top Secret called, and we answered. I wanted to hit this spot because they've been pumping water through the pit and it eroded out a big new rock area. That was the first spot we hit, and within 10 minutes, I had a beat up little meg to set the tone for the day. An hour later, neither of us had found anything, so I decided to walk around the cesspool that borders the right edge of the pit. That meant beating back weeds 2 feet taller than me that were alive with bees while watching the ground for water moccasins. I never got bit or stung, but I also never found anything worth the risk! An hour later, just as it was getting dark, I found myself back in the pit digging like crazy hoping for a fluke meg. Unlike darkness, it never came. I guess I've been due for a run of bad luck for a while. No matter if we find anything or not, Taco Bell is always a great way to end the day.

There's a few angustidens on the top row there that are real shamers. The angys at this place come from the Wando formation for the most part, so they are usually beaten to a pulp.
