Treasure Hunting with Rodney (Story 7)

That button was our last find. We scanned the entire site including the creek bed for any good signals, but neither of us got one. At that point, I knew that was it. I tried to cheer Rodney up a little by reminding him of our coming hunt in the Mohawk Valley, on his turf, in a few days. But at the end of this day, I myself had gotten morally exhausted after taking a few "rides" on the "emotional roller coaster." So I just leaned on a tree and smoked a cigarette enjoying the quiet forest, fresh mountain air, and the whole being outdoors.

A hot cup of instant noodles added more positiveness to our moods. After having a good physical exercise in the wilderness for a day, anyone would consider even a piece of bread a delicacy!

Before the sun hit the horizon, we were back in Cohoes. Rodney had to get a good rest before leaving for home early next morning.
