"These self-described "modern archaeologists" are a far cry from dumpster divers."

Close enough for me. When I "dumpster dive" I always hope it will be something valuable - but as long as it has value to me, it has been a successful dive.

Has anyone heard of this show (American Pickers) on the History Channel? A friend called me last night, but due to other plans, I could only DVR it. Can't wait to check it out tonight!

From the website:
"This isn't your grandmother's antiquing. Pickers like Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk or getting chased off a gun-wielding homeowner's land. Hitting back roads from coast to coast, the two men earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person's trash into another's treasure. American Pickers follows them as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. If you think the antique business is all about upscale boutiques and buttoned-up dealers, this show may change your mind--and teach you a thing or two about American history along the way."

I, too, have been watching it from day one. If I am not near the TV at its time slot, I record.
