          Thanks North. It's coming. I'm over due. Have a feeling there will be some nice ones this year. Lots of flooding.

          Thank you Hoss. You run a great site here, a tight ship that is filled with knowledgeable moderators and members that share accurate info. I appreciate the work that goes into it.

        It looks like I'm late to the party, Mike. I got so use to checking in Feb. and coming up a blank that I didn't check back till today. I'm usually at fault when I'm late but this time I can blame it on Gary/SD Hunter. (l0l) Anyhow I want to add my congratulations to the pile you've already received. You've been a positive force on our forum and I'm glad you are here. Regarding your difficulty in locating sites to hunt. Maybe someone who lives in your neck of the woods will give you advice on where you can get out of town and find some sites. Sometimes one has to spend some time driving around and looking for potential sites and then find the land owner and ask permission to hunt or cross his property. Another resource would be to check and see if there is a chapter of the state archeological society near you. Most states have such organizations. Meet friends who share the same interest.

          Thank you Joe, those are kind words. Good advice. I actually did get permission to hunt on some farm land about an hour away. Going to go after they plow in a few weeks. Wish me luck.

        Congratulations! FlintGuy, I really enjoyed what you wrote. I surely can relate to how you came upon this passion by default; instead of having an epiphany while skipping stones, I had mine while hounding rocks. Your prior interests in history, science, and art shared, and together all that we already were formed natural springboard into this wonderful forum. Also, I get awed by anything touched by Human hands eons ago—- even spalls! You post away any of those “boring” lil lesser tools because boring lil lesser folks like me love, love, love them!

          Very nice post Cecilia,. Thank you. I agree, my mind was just waiting to get triggered by this hobby. If you like my little tools, you probably won't be disappointed, I'm sure they are coming soon. 🙂. Also, I too love finding spalls and cores. Always pick them up and enjoy looking at them. The odd tools hold all the character and mystery.

        Congratulations Mike! I appreciate your posts and am especially grateful that you typed my Merkle dart point I found back in February. Best of luck on your hunt for permission property and the artifacts they hold!

          Thanks Tex. I actually learned something from that post. I had to look up the range of the Merkel. Was surprised to see how far south they were found before I suggested it.
