Thrill of Victory, Agony of Defeat

I hope the phrase Thrill of Victory, Agony of Defeat is not trademarked because its the only way to describe this day. The weezling and I got to the creek and minutes after we arrived I spotted an arrowhead in the bottom of the creek through my clear bottom bucket. SCORE! Then I let the weezling have a turn and he scored some nice teeth in the middle of the creek. We picked up teeth the whole way to our favorite spot where we noticed a HUGE washout created by the last heavy rain. The creek blasted out one bank and dug a cavern into the wall. All the gravel was packed into the back of the hole we tried to see what was back there but the water was rushing and the hole was deep so we couldn't see anything. Then we turned around to walk home and I spied the tip of a gigantic tooth poking out of the wall. I carefully dug around with a pocket knife, and the blade kept going back into the wall. I got back to the root and it fell out because the root was mostly gone. I was completely deflated after that, so we resolved to go back the next day to sift the washout. Lots of teeth in there! The best thing I found sifting was a cool little posterior megalodon tooth. I don't see a lot of teeth from that position.

That would have been a KILLER Meg!! It sucks that the root is busted... I believe that this is the first time your pretty little mug has been caught on video (on purpose...) LOL I love the product placement for Al's company too... ;) Content Quality : 10 of 10

You're right! That is the first time I've been on video. To be fair though, there was a lot more footage of my backside than my mug :-) The weezling is getting better at running the camera so I might be on a little more often.

I'm always amazed at your videos! I was watching with my kids and after seeing your arrowhead, something underwater looked like a large tooth! (around the 27-30th second, on the right hand side after your hand leaves the picture. Was that a tooth? Anyways, we look forward to someday find a cool spot like you have! Thanks for sharing!

Send me the Weezling's account number and I will forward the endorsement money right away. Thanks! Many a time I watched that guy helicopter spin over that ramp but it never put me on the edge of my seat like watching that meg come out. Root schmoot! Thats a awesome tooth and the thrill of finding it, perfect or not, is what pumps the adrenalin that most of, if not all of us, live for. Sharing that with your son...the icing on the cake.
