  • People think you are searching for buried Spanish doubloons
  • You have shared an “emergency” beer with Gary Beiter
  • The land owner forgets to tell you it is hunting season, so you improvise high-visibility gear from colored tape
  • Your test pit fills with water at 30cm
  • STP always stands for sand-tempered plain, not some 1990s alternative band
