Stealth mode

After the incident last week with getting kicked out and all, we (T money and I) decided to employ a little stealth in our operation. There are these dirt roads that connect the two sides of the development, so we parked in the woods and walked to the pond. We ducked behind piles and hid behind giant dirt boulders as the pond gestapo patrolled the area looking for rogue toothers. Believe it or not we got tired of the area because we weren't finding anything, so we headed off back down the dirt road. We didn't even care that we were seen. (just as a side note, the far end of this pond has the highest layer I have ever seen! It was only a foot and a half down! Amazing!) We tried the ditch next to the forbidden, but I had a bad feeling because it was in this dude's back yard. I don't like being chased off with a shotgun. We had one last shot before we quit early - a ditch that runs along the far edge of the development behind this trailer park. OH MAN! The layer was AWESOME! I can't believe we didn't ever dig there before. All along the bottom of the ditch there are these white rocks in orange and black sand and blue clay. Sounds appealing, huh? Its exactly the same stuff we were finding all the white teeth in when the forbidden was in commission. With high hopes we dug like moles. We pulled a few good ones out - I found a nice white mako, but t money stole the day - a 2 1/2" Orange and White marbled Mako in nearly museum condition. A true beauty! We ended up calling it quits, though, after only an hour and a half because it was SO hot. It was so hot that it sapped my will to find teeth. Now thats HOT!
