California Vacation Digging II

#1

Post by Cap-Sealed » Mon May 06, 2019 9:11 am

Took a week of vacation in Northern California to go digging with Dale & Bill. My first 2 trips of the year sucked, this one paid off well!

Lucky OIs & Rainier cones - always go back where you found cans last. I thought we hammered this place last year, but Dale wanted to go back and look for some Willows...

We did well considering the Sierras had a record snow pack. We knew we couldnt get into the high country and had to stay low. We ran across 2 washed out roads which put the kabosh and hitting some areas we wanted to go, and we blocked by mud holes in other places (flooded fields) which also denied us. Almost got both trucks stuck at once too. We were on fire for the first day and averaged a case or 2 of cans every day after that. Not a bad start for 2019...

The Lake Tahoe show is our next adventure! That's in July... most of the snow should be gone by then.

Washed out road.... forest fires devastated the area and the water no longer soaks in the ground - it runs off right away causing flooding. Bill did find a surface Old German FT by Grace - one side burned.

Looks like your off to another excellent season ED.
Great digs guys, it appears the weather and the can Gods were in your favor.
Wish I could have been there, this work stuff sucks!

Love the cones.

Are the ABCs good?
"Still looking for 2 specific examples of the following cans I traded away years ago.
Berghoff LP cone: indoor with rusted seam and slight touchup on white stripe in upper right of label. Also a copper colored Drewrys "Taurus/Gemini" scene; indoor with yellow smoke damage and top lid half cut out.

Will trade a better examples, other cans or buy from you!

They were the first cans in the box for me.... nothing special but have good color. If they have Keglined on them, they could be paint overs of Albion Ale or Bo Bohemians!

The Friday where we ended our digging trip, we had a half a day on that Saturday to burn so we went up to see RB Hall of Famer Herman Oswald for an afternoon. Herman tried really hard to get us in a good spot to dig but the snow prevented us from many of his sweet spots and the other good areas close to his house were heavily logged, destroying the camping areas. We found one campground to bleep around for a couple hours and dug these...nothing special but it was a bonus dig considering we figured we were done for the week. It was fun because you never know what will pop up in the pits.... If only those Becker's were Happy Hops!
