    Onion Creek, Its a Weird Coincidental World

    So at a funeral in my home town of Midland a couple days ago I talked to one of my cousins who is a big executive in a corporation said they are sending him to work on a new Mercedes dealership on Onion Creek and its right where a lot of the illegal digging is going on! He will be here in a week or so to look at the site and he is a no nonsense hard ass west Texan. Anyone digging illegally out there better watch their caca once he takes over the site! As it currently works out I dont really care to dig out there and I'm not going to beg permission, where I'm digging now is better anyway!

    Thats what we need.......Another car dealership specializing in the sale of overpriced vehicles. Destroying sites in the name of economic advancement. That's justifiable right? Personally, I hope they get all they can before another useless car lot covers up and destroys it forever!

    Glad you have a nice place to dig.

    Never came up in conversation but he asked me if I knew the area and other than post I see mostly elsewhere I have not visited the site, lots of nice Archaic bling I have seen and heard, I really dont care, I have no dog in this hunt, just saying its a strange coincidence that this is one of my cousins current projects. I have no desire to do these type of illegal digs and am occupied by what is to me more interesting site. If my cousin and I have lunch on his visit as we said we would and it comes up in conversation I'll get a better sense of his demeanor on this subject. We were at a funeral!

    Midlandman I don't have no desire to do any thing illegal. We could stop all the illegal digging by screening & putting it all back in sifted dirt. ps. sorry for your loss !

    Are you referring to the site on Onion Creek close to the Austin Bergstrom Airport off of highway 183? If so, that site has been dug for years by lots of people.

    Jay, I think we all understand your sentiment, but strong legal protection for private property and digging with permission is the only thing keeping Texas from becoming one of the other states where digging is a thing of the past.
