    Those Mormon crickets you run over in those desert areas are worth 25 cents each if you can keep them alive and know where to sell them. Here's a map that shows where you can find buyers... http://www.pikeminnow.org/station-directions

    Nice work mike. Maybe you can help me put together a 3kilo I found. I have about 15 pieces put together and maybe another 20 to go. Unfortunately the pieces just keep getting smaller and smaller 🤔😩 picture shows ~1kilo Heres another one that took me about an hour to figure out. It’s a great game to play with friends as I’ll hand it over in pieces and let them figure it out. I can almost do it with my eyes closed now 😅

    I would say not a meteorite. Found similar rocks like this before. Gotta be the best meteorwrongs on earth 😂 like mine, your rocks seem to be layered in areas as well as some interesting minerals popping out (the reddish/orange areas) Very magnetic as well. And although difficult to see from the horrible pics, my rocks are just as “regmaglypted” probably from being sand blasted for tens of thousands, if not millions of years. (Probably explains the black crust as well)

    Perhaps if you could elaborate beyond "desert areas of Idaho" you will get a some better info from folks. That's a pretty big area and a tad vague. Trying to do any nuggetshooting south of the Snake River is going to be a wasted effort except for a few very select areas until you get down into NV. The link that Dakota Slim shared is from my website. Free info and a good start.

    There is also a low lying plant that dyes your shoes purple. I don't recall the name of it. but It also grows in nugget patches. I know it when I see it. the Indians used it for dye. there is another tall one it rattles like a rattle snake when its dry and you bump it. has loose beans in it. AzNuggetBob

    Prickly pear cactus loves high iron soil and I've found several nugget patches in prickly pear patches. AzNuggetBob

    Well, Bob; it is hard enough to live on Earth-time...we would need much longer lives and broader view to live on Universe-time... I am 68 and very well remember the scientists screaming there could not be other planets or life elsewhere...all that has changed. The fiction of today is tomorrows facts...I hope this post fits in, I am not going to read 34 pages to find out... fred

    If I found a jar of gold coins, you can bet your last dollar... I would walk away with a jar of gold coins.

    Here lately been having no luck trying to get a good wheel/tire balance on my Jeep. Either the balance is not quite right, lug-nuts getting cross-threaded on lugs or lug-nuts being over-torqued by impacts possibly stretching lug threads. Last week I purchased the Pittsburgh Portable Wheel Balancer (old-school bubble view) and low and behold it balanced all 4 of my Jeep tires beautifully First time I've ever balanced my own tires...quite easy with good results. I like the satisfaction of "wrenching" on my own Jeep anyways and really love the idea of not having future lug issues. Ha!

    While this balancer works well for some tires, it doesn't work for all, it's designed for hub centric rims, unfortunately wheels on my 4 runner are lug centric, meaning the lugs center the rim on the hub and not the center hole of the rim centering the wheel on the hub.
