ID:	355859 Drove south of me to visit my 75 yr old Uncle past wknd.
    ( S Central Mo.)..he was never an avid artifact hunter..but had a few boxes of finds he came by hunting game and fishing. He showed me finds he had from a hard to get too spot close to him..i personally havent found any pottery so i was really excited...he sat on the tail gait and chewed tobacco while i hunted a big washout from the heavy rain. I found some brokes and maybe flake knife/scrapers in just 2 hours...so i posted a pic of those too.

      Your uncle handed you the lantern, you’ve shown the light on his finds. Now, you are the caretaker !

        Ty Red , he told me a story of his brother whom i never had the chance to meet..( his collection long since separated and gone ..though he had a handful of them )..said he would leave out with a backpack ,fishing pole,Small shovel , corn meal ..and hunt rocks for 3 days back in late 50s...maybe this thing is genetic ?
