    He has a spade but uses his helmet. Wondering.

    Maybe the shovel was good for digging the hole but the helmet scopes out more sand then the small entrenching blade?...

    The helmet holds more, and it's sand, not rooty, rocky dirt.

    It doesn't matter, you take time to do it and there's only so many pics. It has to get hard to find new stuff.
