I thought a tobacco can might be a nice addition to my wall of collectables in the RV.
After all there are hundreds of them scattered about the desert here.
I started out on my search near the windmill water pump.
Over flow water pools up here for livestock and desert life
Looks refreshing doesn’t it?
I caused a stampede as I approached the drinking hole.
They just stood there wondering what the heck I was all about.
Anyway, back to the purpose of this walk.
You’d think I would be able to find a decent tin in all of this.
Well all of this debris being about a hundred years old it is very rusty, full of holes and most everything has been smashed flat.
I came back with three tins, cleaned them up and this was about the best of the lot.
Now that I have one I’m not so sure I want to put it up on the wall.
On another day’s walk in the desert,
a rare one-of-a-kind find, a can that wasn’t smashed, shot full of holes or rusted out.
I hid it back under some brush.
These were five gallon cans that held kerosene.
On this day as you read this we will be moving on to new adventures.
