Water Hunting

I hunted a couple of old bedrock swimming holes in locale of old mining operations. I was and still am almost certain these holes have been used by miners in the late 1800s/ early 1900s. Came up with a lot of modern coins, and someone's iphone 6 (still drying in a bag of rice). Hoping to get out for some more creek hunting this July.

I am still stressed out about a coin ping through some bedrock. I found the crack that it slid under, and after washing out some silt, there is a small hand-sized cavern back under the bedrock. The coin is about 4 inches around a corner that I can't reach. I was afraid I would get my hand stuck if I really went for it, so I left the target behind. I think I will return with some sort of reacher or brush to see if I can pull it out. Could be a 2000s dime or could be a silver dollar. The curiosity is killing me on that one. I'll have to get some photos of this situation.

Don't stick your hand in that hole, sounds like a monkey or raccoon trap.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Andrew C. it sounds like you need to make a Slurp Gun. You can make them as complicated or as simple as you wish, but basically all it would be is a tube with a plunger that you can draw back quickly to create suction.

Sounds like a neat way to beat the heat.

According to a lot of techies, an I phone 6 is a relic as well.
