    This morning got out with my dog, and monster for a short hunt. We went to one of my favorite spots in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, where many emigrants including the Donner party have passed through. I have found lots of traces of the emigrants from oxen shoes to old metal safety pins, nails and old cans. I got to swinging at about 8am and on my first swing a target i heard. Couple of scratchs with my pick and in the morning light i could see round silver in the hole. When i picked it up i was so stoked to see my first 1916 mercury dime! I combed the area for more, but one was enough to keep me smiling for days. When i got home i realized i almost found a very valuable coin, if only it was minted in Denver. That's cool though now i can keep this sweet coin.

    I would swear this is NOT cinnabar. There is no softness to it. Nowhere is it pokeable lol. I agree that the structure in the broken area doesn't look like quartz. However, it is not soft.

    The chile harvest is upon us, and I'd thought I would share how I make chile verde. First get your camp oven hot. A bed of coals from a campfire works great, as does a freestanding LP camp stove like mine in the pictures. Throw in two or three tablespoons of fat. Be it oil, lard, or bacon fat. I used bacon fat here. Use what you like. Now add in a couple of pounds of meat for a small batch, more if you're feeding a herd. Stir fry the meat till golden. Now add half an onion and a couple of gloves of garlic, all chopped. I added some mushrooms to mine because they were looking lonely in the fridge. When everything is nicely browned, sprinkle two tablespoons of flour over it all. Stir like he'll When the flour is absorbed into the oil coating it all, slowly add a little water at a time continuing to stir. If you've done it right it will look like a nice light brown gravy. It will NOT taste like gravy yet....so keep your fingers out of it! Allow to simmer in the thick gravy for a few minutes to cook the flour taste off. Now is a good time to add whatever herbs you want. I added some rosemary that I crushed, along with a bit of cumin. Now add enough water to completely cover the mixture and simmer covered at a low boil for an hour or so. Next add your chile. You can just chop them up and throw them in, but I like roasting and peeling them first. I had some tomatillos, so I tossed those in too. Cervasa por favor? Now add a bottle of your favorite malted beverage. Use good beer, if it isn't good enough to drink...don't cook with it. Simmer covered until thick and delicious. Salt to taste and serve with a tortilla roasted on the inverted lid of your camp oven. Heat level will be mild to wild depending on what kind of chile you used. If you make a hot batch...make sure to share with a friend

    Its Calcite crystals.... I forget the type of crystal structure that is. The botroidial stuff may be quartz .

    If it's calcite, a couple drops of vinegar on it will slowly fizz after a few minutes. Make sure it's done on the clear part.

    Raimund, I have two requests. Not required but preferably, could you please share with the community or just myself the outcome of your experience with your father with some pictures or without pictures. Only if you would like. We would like read or see the experience and joy with you. I repeat not required but preferably. That is the first request. The second request I have. For the responsibility to the meteorite community, if your father would like to report his find to meteoritics or scientists as a new find please tell him this is a gift from you and he will love you even more because you are so thoughtful and concerned about his happiness and health, fathers love these emotions from their children. Reporting this meteorite as a new find in any way is a violation to the meteorite community, this will not be acceptable. So please be responsible about this situation. I really love what you are doing for your father. I completely support your actions to improve your fathers happiness and health. I hope you understand, translation can be difficult, but I believe the community will appreciate everything as well. You are a awesome guy for caring for your family like this Raimund. I truly have so much respect for you. Thank you for sharing.

    Yeah I'll bring Carlos Reavis II. He was abandoned years ago in the Superstitions by an unfortunate treasure hunter whom lacked much humanity. I was outfitting up there a month later and Carlos joined my pack string and earned a forever home. That's him in my avatar with no saddle or lead... We were on the Reavis trail so the name stuck.
