eBagger back atcha wit anotha hot fiya search fo' that sweet barrier island coco!
I've been pretty sober over the past year, thus accounting for my lack of blockbuster, 2-thumbs up, critically acclaimed, 5-star threads. Cause when I'm crunk I'm usually more active for some reason.
I was at my buddies house when I was tracking the storm, and I stumbled across this little piece of news...
So even though I'm on the North Carolina coast, I thought to myself...it's worth a go!!
So early morning as soon as the sun came out, and the tide came out, I paddled out to the barrier island in search of large amount of Cocaine bricks, or any other narcotic.
I forgot my camera, as I wasn't thinking of making a thread on it, but I came across some cool stuff too big to haul back, but of no real value. One being a giant Coast Guard Buoy washed up on shore. It looks almost exactly like this, huge enough for me to climb on, with a solar light on top, and a giant bin with 2-inch wide bolts holding it shut.
I may update the thread this weekend or early next week with whats inside, as it will take some work, but with one of those giant wrenches meant for working on diesel engines, or maybe even a plumbers wrench and some WD-40 could be enough to break the rusted bolts.
I asked my friend to ask her husband, who is in the coast guard what are in these suckers. I was told "nothing", and warned of the dangers of tampering with Government property. HAH. I said BITCH...don't restrict my freedom of adventure! Not really, but I was like "oh".
and I did say I give 0 hoots about that shit, and the government does shit I don't agree with all the time fuck their buoys. Of course if it serious this is all in minecraft, and the pictures I upload will be slightly blocky LOL
NOW. For the treasure!
I was disappointed honestly, but I believe either a shipment of sunglasses went overboard, or its just random but considering the amount of sunglasses I found it seemed to be a small shipment went overboard somewhere. I walked the course of a few miles, and every quarter mile I would find a pair of sunglasses. They were full of barnacles but I've been soaking them and they seem to come clean. I got about 6-8 useable pair of sunglasses and some snorkels and a snorkel mouthpiece. I can't make out the brands on some, one of them being Under Armor.
Getting hot and eaten alive by giant island flies, I decided to head back, not totally disappointed as I have a buoy to check out, and found some cool stuff to look at and glasses.
I came across a lone man walking, and he yelled something indecipherable to me, I walked over and asked him "wha?"
--"Ah g'day! I thought you were Bills son my bad, I'm Mark good to meetcha!"
"Ah Gday Mark!"
--"Oy these flies'll take a chunk out of ya Christ"
"You ain't lyin Mark, hazards everywhere out here, watch the broken glass!"
--"Oh will do mate, good luck on your search!"
This fella seemed Australian, and feisty, I might as well joke with him about what I'm lookin for, since he seemed to inquire I was indeed "searching" for something
"Yeah man, I'm on the search alright, I read a bunch of Cocaine bricks washed up on Florida, I'm seein if theres any stragglers!"
--"AHH HAHAHAHH IS THAT ROIGHT HAHA"
--"True story I went to Belize with my brother walking on the beach, and I found a bale THIS BIG *does giant box shape with hands* of Pot! Couldn't take it on the plane of course but boy was that something"
"Thats awesome! Thanks for the inspiration!"
--"Yezzir good luck!"
AHA Finding another mate who'd successfully found kush on the beach. Maybe there was still a chance!
I return to my landing area, then, not 20 meters from where I landed, I spotted a box in the distance....
OH YEAH! JACKPOT!
A functional military box! It was heavy too! I was too excited, but too exhausted as well, so I tossed my loot in the kayak and headed back.
Upon eating mac and cheese and showering, I opened the box hoping for anything cool from the military really, but unfortunately the only thing stuffed in there was empty ammo boxes, and a couple of papa johns pizza plates.
Thats about it. I'll update if I get the energy and motivation to head back and open the buoy.
