Something really nice about being able to hang out with other hunters. The conversation can go all over the board, but you can always have one common denominator. Makes for good company. Tonight went a bit like this...
J: Whoa look ..
Me: what is it?
J: a scorpion
Me: smush smush smush.......
J: you killed it!
Me: ...and you hate spiders
J: it was a baby
Me: don't give a bleep I'm wearing flip flops, and your a hypocrite that hates spiders........
Followed by arrowhead talk, and what a weiner he was about spiders, and how evil I was for smushing a scorpion...(*and to clarify loved the convo)

There's nothing like digging under a bluff with a buddy for 7-8 hours. You might talk while you're digging for an hour or two, and then go the next 3 hours without saying anything unless somebody finds something nice. Man do I have a bunch of stories. Probably wouldn't be as funny or interesting reading them, but we've had some good times.
Poor scorpion. I shall forever remember him/her.
When Ray and I take a long road trip together, I haul out the corny jokes and he starts in with the threats of suicide . . . it's all in good fun.
Yeah digging with others is way more fun than alone. And like was said above, you can joke for a little while, then go hours without talking. It sure is a mesmerizing experience digging for arrowheads. It's the most relaxing way to hunt points for me. All the stress of the world just disappears. I remember an old digging buddy I had found a very nice triangular blade, but small and he handed it to me to look at. I was wiping the mud off of it, and it turned out to have tiny little notches in the sides. It turned out to be a perfect Cache River, ever since I've wanted to find one.
