The Code

Almost one month without rain ---- the Edisto was low and a collecting fest was in order! After all, the Caracholoes Code (Code 3) states: "When its low, you gotta go"! I was propoerly Java loaded (code 37) and arrived at 'Darth' Weezils crib around 0915. We packed up the truck, and after some junior BRFC-ers arrived, we were on our way. With the river being low, we could try some new spot avec chitlins. We headed near the infamous spot --- "if I didnt have to eat, id never leave" --- and found newly uncovered gravel beds a bit downriver. The fest was on, yo! The river was pretty clear and the sunshine made collecting fossilicious. I swam around for several hours picking up so many teeth I simply left my bag in open position. Maybe DW can tell me if that is a "0" or "1" in binary language? We ran into each other several times and the racking was immense; Weezling had some killer benedenis and DW found a super arrowpoint in a hydro-pedastal position. Proper recording of the event occured (code 7), which will be a hit on BRFC youtube for decades to come! I had to break and clear my sinuses and eat some grub; then racked some more. I think I ended up with 16 angys and loads of other teeth including 2 shammer giant threshers, a nice horse tooth and small squaly incisor. We will be back, oh, yes, we will. 'Cause code 2 states: "Get back when there is potential to rack". For those wondering what Code 1 is, well, that is for another trip!
