    Thanks for the video! I have a toy for you to try – the swanlake fluid extractor – $13.50 on amazon and it works great for the small, deep crevices! After trying I bought one for my son and Dad, it is great when the big hand pump can’t fit. Also, put a pin or needle at the tip and you will stop any rocks that are just the right diameter to fit in the hose, but not make it all the way thru. Maybe you will go after those culvert seams to test out the little siphon?

    I wish it was warmer with full sun. But it was great to get out do something a little different. We both gained a little bit of knowledge and new ideas. And had a little bit of fun. It was good seeing you after a long winter, hopefully the next time we’re out we find a little bit more of the color.
