Treasure Hunting with Rodney In Central New York (Story 7)

When Rodney approached the swings area, put his White's XLT down and began digging, I was sure that now he would dig out something valuable.

What Rodney recovered was actually a cool relic find.

The only acceptable find I recovered after digging endless iron junk for two hours was a "wheat" penny.

After we were done with lunch, the rain turned into a heavy downpour. Knowing that "if it is raining south of Mohawk river, then it might be dry in the north of Mohawk," we said "good bye" to the farm house and drove north.
