Florida Not Dead Yet!

#1

Post by canaddict » Fri Jun 08, 2018 9:21 pm

Finally found some time to clean some cans from some recent digging trips.

Here are some FL cans found in the past few months. Cans actually cleaning up quite a bit more than shown in the pics.

I think I am the only active RBer who is still crazy enough to look for cans in Florida. Not giving up yet!

My buddy, Todd Klimson (tklimson), just joined the RB and I am have been trying to show him the ropes. He lives near Ocala and just found 3 huge 1940s dumps nearby (tipped by a local). Trying to find some time to go check them out in the Summer heat (and bugs and poison ivy).

Scott....great stuff...hope I might be able to get out again sometime...

Danny.....we've found a few variations of the Pabst quart...I'm sure Ballantine had some pushed to Florida but have never dumped any other than the Pabst quarts

More recent FL stuff. Keith, going to meet up with new guy Todd at those dumps mentioned near Ocala, most likely on June 18 and 19. Can you get a day or two off? Going to camp night of June 18.
