Treasure Hunting with Rodney (Story 7)

As usual in our practice, an abandoned American classic car would be sitting on the roadside.

We kept walking and observing through the forest on both sides of the trail. There were no outstanding landmarks in the area - that made it difficult to locate the site of a former big house. The best way to do it would be using GPS, but since I had never used one for a simple reason - I trust my trained eyes, I was confident that we soon would locate the spot.

My eyes did not let me down - I noticed a huge trunk of a half-broken tree 30 feet away from the road in the forest. At a closer look, it was indeed the first-growth tree - an indicator of the foundation and a cellar hole situated nearby.

Then we noticed the 19th century homestead vegetation all over the place, and then... we located a huge cellar hole!
