Do any of the San Francisco hunters have any summer updates to post on where every one is? I and another member here on the forum did some probing in SHP last month. We now have two spots of interest. As you can imagine we were in stealth mode. I personally feel it was the Park Ranger uniforms that did the trick. Luckily no one spotted my orange running shoes. We did learn that July is not the best month to go probing as the ground was pretty hard. We intend to go back once the rainy season begins. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

Best month is actually June and July,
but you have to wait for the fog to come in and hide you...

I might've missed your post but did you ever post the Chinese emigration connection to your solve?

Not in my original solve. I have noticed since then that there may be a Chinese theme to a point. The Chinese Goddess of the Moon Chang-o could have something to do with the moons in Image 1. If that is the case then there are a few moons that are hovering directly above some of my locations along my path including my final location.

That’s pretty funny Mr Falcon. I would imagine that is pretty tough to play golf at Lincoln Park like that.

I’m hoping for both a little rain and fog. I will have to get a couple Park Ranger rain coats and glow in the fog running shoes.

Looks like you're using a 3/4" diameter probe from Amazon.
I couldn't get much ground penetration with it either.
Walked on down to a 1/4" diameter cold-rolled steel rod from local hardware store - more penetration but rod bent.
I went on Amazon again and got a 1/8" diameter x 48" length precipitation-hardened, 17-4 stainless steel rod.
UNSPSC Code 30102405

It works like a charm without bending.
You will need gloves though, no T-handle.

Thanks for the tip. We are using a boroscope so we need it that wide. We may bring both next time though.
Has anyone ever used a drill?. I know that Home Depot has cordless power drills with drill bits that go to 21 inches and on their website they go up to 36 inches.

I have a probe, but I have found that using threaded rod in a cordless drill works great. 5/16" threaded rod from Home Depot comes in 3 or 6 foot lengths, and it's cheap. Take one end and files three flats to match the chuck of the drill. You can basically drill it into the ground and back out in 10 - 20 seconds. The chucked end will eventually break from the heat and torque, so bring the file with you. And spare batteries for the drill.

You can probe a huge area in no time.

Thanks GMan,
Do you have a particular cordless drill brand name I can get? Is there one that has a 3/4 of an inch drill bit. Either way I think this sounds like a good way go.

I have a Milwaukee cordless drill and I love it. The batteries last forever. You really can get whatever 1/2" cordless drill you want and the chuck should open up enough to accept the threaded rod.

If you can get the hammer option on the drill, it's not a bad idea because sometimes you'll have to work through some tough soil or obstructions. Also, get at least one spare battery. All of this stuff, including the file can easily fit in a backpack. You have to carry the threaded rod though. My advice is to get the 6 foot length and cut it down to 4 - 4.5 feet with a hacksaw.

If you need the hole to be 3/4" for the boroscope, drill first then chase the hole with the probe. Or you can get a smaller scope. I've seen small diameter ones that connect to your phone. I think they are pretty cheap on Amazon.

In addition you can paint the threaded rod white and the tip red, (Blind walking stick) and no one will bother you ( Gman's idea) or you can just carry around a 4' bright RED probe around the city and no one will notice you!!! ;D

That's a good way of drilling right through the cask. It could be moved up closer to the surface. Major earthquake in 89 could've done it.
1/8" and 1/4" probes also could poke right through the box and don't feel it. Cracks may have weakened the box.
