Ivan is one of Utah's premier diggers. You will find him skulking about constructions sites, vacant lots, dirt piles and old houses, probe in hand. It is said that sometimes he can just "feel" where the pit is. In any case, he has proven that he can find it if it's old and buried, even an occasional graveyard......but you'll have to ask him about that. The photo on the right is about all you will ever see of Ivan. Many of us do not know what he looks like any more.
He just likes to get "out" and it always involves finding something.
His great passion is Utah bottles and he really perks up for an old whiskey. Those "drippy" tops are just the right age.
See his wonderful photos of our Utah Bottles.
Ivan took pity on me and allowed me to be his digging partner (tag along and watch him dig) We had some great adventures here and in old Nevada.
