    I ran into a water tight box full of marijuana and scales propped against a telephone phone poll when I was mowing the road banks on out road. The sherif loved that.

    I found a 150lb steel anvil while digging a hole to bury a horse. The anvil was under 4ft of earth. I pressure washed as much of the rust off as I could but still cant find the markings on it. Not sure how old it is but I am using it

    My cousin used to dig up an occasional petrified tree trunk while doing bull dozer work.

    A portion of our wooded land must have been the dump for the family that owned the land decades ago...glass bottles everywhere, a couple old Delco batteries. Always finding leather and rubber shoe soles from the 50s-60s when we dig up the soil to plant something. Further back in the woods along a drainage creek I've found the rear portion of a touring car body from the 20's and a large exhaust manifold from a 6 or 8 cylinder teens car. Haven't found the rest yet but I'm looking!

    An interesting find by one of my workers... headed out to a job site, found an ammo box laying along the road. Inside was 119 Lake City .50 cal BMG rounds.

    He didn't want the ammo (fool), only the can. So I brought him in one that was in "perfect" shape and we made an even trade!!!

    That was a GOOD trade!!

    Now I just need that Barrett...maybe he will find it along the road next

    A frame for a single-wide mobile home and everything that was inside it when it burned. Previous owners covered it with dirt from a cut in the hillside.
    Two hundred feet of wellpipe laying in the trees.
    Tons of scrap metal from a old truck shop.

    All this was found on ten acres that everyone denied had ever had any structures on it.
