We came back to our dig and the tarp was caving in alaong with outside debri almost falling into the quad. It was a hard job to carefully pull the tarp out and not let any dirt inside the quad. While digging further the wall caved in, making out job a little more difficult. We were able to clear up the area and put tarp over the area for our next visit. It was a productive and eventful day.
