The Marathon

My second stop of the day was Top Secret - always a favorite when we get a lot of rain. This spot has shrunken to the size of the pit. That's right. All the piles are gone now, and I fear that we will soon lose the pit, too. Today it was still there, though, and I made the best of it. I scoured the fresh layer and picked out everything I saw. I thought I found a good meg sticking out of the ground, but when I pulled it out I found out it was all kinds of busted up. I started walking around the back sewage retention pond (now sans alligator) and I found my best tooth of the day thus far. There was an old pile, previously overgrown, that had collapsed when the owners of the pit started reclaiming their fill. It was made up almost entirely of chandler bridge, and the angy was sticking out. I would have taken a ground photo, but it was raining and I didn't want to deep six my digital camera. Just as I picked it up, I heard semi-automatic weapon fire from close range. They weren't shooting at me, but they didn't know I was there, either, so I went all road runner for my truck. After a quick bite to eat, I was ready to hunt my next spot.
