Re: [DML] Question for people who have cleaned out the valley..



Nathan:

A few things I needed when doing this were: time, patience, long flat-head 
screwdriver, time, shop-vac, garden hose, degreaser spray, and time.  Yeah, 
I know I said time three times, it's important.  As far as I know there 
isn't any magic potion you can put in there to get rid of all this stuff, 
it's just a lot of scraping and vacuuming.  Be sure your shop-vac can handle 
water.  Also be sure to really clean out the deep holes in the valley, 
that's where the block problems usually start.

Sounds like you found some good pirate's booty when you opened up the 
valley.  It's a secret little treasure chest down there!
