Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?"Ron replied, "That would be my wife.

  2. Excellent topic Suelo! I'm a big fan of good old fashioned water. But milk or juice is great as long as it is not your primary source of liquids. I like a beer once in a while but I never use it as a quench. I always quench before I drink a beer and then make sure to quench after. And when drinking any alcoholic beverage I quench with pure water and not something sugary. Some of the new quenches have a sugar substitute that does not sit well with me. I tried a popular flavored water thinking that because it was clear it would make a good quench. I liked the taste and used it for quenching on a long hike one summer. My stomach tightened up like an anaconda and I began crapping pellets as dense as pallasites. I haven't quenched with that crap since. So quenches are very important. Especially for outdoorsmen who are working hard. My opinion is you should quench with water and limit any other liquid to small amounts. And natural liquids such as milk, juice or vegetable drinks are much better quenches than any prepared drink. Horchata is a great drink for quenching. It is basically ground rice steeped in water and flavored with nutmeg and a shot of canned milk. You can add some brown sugar or molasses if you like. It is the only recipe I would consider a good quench. Horchata is a Mexican quench using rice. But a buddy of mine from Tobago makes a quench out of seaweed called "Irish Moss". It is almost like horchata flavored with a little peanut butter. Both are excellent quenches that are delicious and nutritious. So quench early and quench often. It is very important for every prospector!

  4. Honestly, I’m thinking crinoid stem pieces. I’ve zoomed in on the holes.

  5. Interesting, I haven’t thought about those for a very long time. I even collected some from clams and sand dollars that were also molds of their insides. I think you may be right about that, the technical term for it is a “steinkern”. It is common inside clamshells when the interior space is filled in and fossilized, and the rest of the shell disintegrates. Ha! And I pulled that term out of my head from a paleontology class I took back in the 80’s. My brain still works!

  6. Looking at those holes makes me think you may have a mold fossil. That happens when an organism dies and is buried. The organism decomposes and leaves behind a hole in the shape of its body.

  9. I think a ducket is about five average frogskins. Maybe six if the frogs were small. Samoleans are a volatile currency that roughly equate to about three frogskins and a hand full of pretty rocks. Im not sure they are still fungible outside of Swaziland. But I will gladly pay you in Samoleans on Thursday for a hamburger today.

  13. They put some wicked twin turbocharged diesel engines in the Samurai over in SE Asia. The rich folks love them. I bet those hotrod rotary diesel engines would really sing in a rig like that. It would perform at any altitude and have an incredible RPM range.
