I took a long walk in the woods looking for morels.  Most years I find footprints and beer cans. No beer cans so far.  Found footprints and a hardboiled egg!!  Also found Three new places where the fence has been cut or pushed down.  Someone had brought in a 4 wheeler.  Evidently my fence should not have been in their  way .   

I did interrupt a couple turtles. (good thing I don't understand turtle.)  Spotted a really scrawny deer, What I believe is a bobcat footprint, A new groundhog den . And two small bottles that say  THOMAS A EDISON  BATTERY OIL.   Still wish I had fond some mushrooms.

Not much meat on that deer.  He must have had a rough winter.

It's always a trip when I catch someone and they insist they have the owners permission.  And yet they don't even know me.

I just had to do a bit of research on T.A.Edison's "battery oil" product:

 

Quote from: http://en.wikicollec...ery-oil-bottles

 

"Battery oil was used in conjunction with glass battery jars, which contained a battery surrounded by a conductive solution of either acid or copper sulphate. Battery oil was used to create a thin film of liquid on top of these solutions, to prevent them from evaporating.

The batteries were predominantly used on the railways, to power track and signal circuits, and the vast majority of used Battery Oil bottles have been recovered by collectors from sites near railway tracks"

That makes good sense.  CSX runs down the east side of my woods.  I have found them before and always in the same general area.

Thanks for the information.   Rick
