And another one...

Drove for three hours today to check on an old line and got nailed for crossing a solid white line :x Got 3 demerit points for it.

Then things got better. I found something pretty nice only a couple hundred feet down the line, and it was on the surface. Further hunting produced the base of another 740 series in ice aqua.

Here is my second threadless in 7 days, and yes it's a DUPONT! More pics to come...

I think this one is a light green. Does anyone have one to compare? The colour in the photo is pretty good.

Can't get the damn shots off the better camera, but I would say it's close to Cliff's. Either way, I am happy with it, even though the base is chipped and missing the E DUPO part of the embossing. My good strech became too swampy, and the kids were antsy, so I called it quits. There are definitely more opportunities on this line, but 6 hours of driving in a day can be tiring on it's own :)

Yeah, I would guess that nobody has hunted this particular line before. All the threaded stuff was common, and usually in many pieces. It's a threadless hunters dream...

I posted more pics of my recent hunts in the picture poster gallery for all to see. Sadly the camera was in video mode when I thought I was photographing it on the ground. All I got was a low res capture, but you get the idea ;)
