DIV XLV Finds
March 31, 2019 02:48PM
As always, I had an amazing time at Diggin' In Virginia. No matter how hard we hunt, Brandy Rock always produces! Was slow-going on the first day but I really picked it up on Days 2 and 3 to fill my display case. Finished the hunt with 21 bullets, four Eagle buttons, an ammo box finial, a beautiful gilded civilian button, and a carved lead number 4! Still in shock about that! The first number/letter I have ever found! Thank you John, Rose, and the DIV committee for organizing these hunts. Special thanks to Keith Leppert for coming in clutch with two GPX batteries when both of mine decided to die at the same time the night before the hunt! Also big thanks to Dan Lindstrom and Larry Shirah for being great dig partners and drivers and for letting me borrow a spare coil when my 11" x 15" Commander up and quit on me (technology was not my friend this hunt...).

Wrote an article about the whole DIV experience on my website: https://www.discoveramericablog.com/single-post/2019/03/31/Diggin-In-Virginia-XLV-Brandy-Rock-Farm. Got more pictures from the hunt and BBQ posted there! Thanks everyone! Already looking forward to the next!
