  1. It was great to see Dave and Jason again in the field, and nice to meet Eric! I was out with a few friends hunting Franconia, called Dave with a question about Franconia and he suggested we drive down the road a bit and see them where they were hunting. Thank you Dave, all enjoyed seeing you and your buddies in action! We did not find any meteorites this time at either place, but since we dug some of the old military things we at least knew our detectors were working! Twink
  2. Very coincidentally-- some friends from Virginia who were on a road trip had asked if we (my detecting friend Don and I) would meet them out west some where around the 18th of July. So, we chose to meet in Holbrook on the 18th and 19th and then we went on to Greer, AZ to cool off and see greenery and lakes. On the 18th we did not have a lot of time, but did walk around for a bit and did not find any Holbrooks. We went back the 19th early in the day and the nighttime heavy rain storm had made it impossible to get into the field, so we headed out for Greer. So we did sort of celebrate the occ
  3. I enjoyed the gathering so much! Great to meet some new folks along with the freiends I did know already. Thanks again to Richard and Dave for the hats, pins, coins and the gathering in general. Yes I hope we do this more than once a year as I love wandering around GB even if I get skunked as I did this time! At least my hunting partner Don Morin found his first and a very nice one at that. Yes some are still sitting around under or near bushes as Don and Jim Tobin found out! October through mid April seems like the best weather to me. I did forget to share a story or three which I woul
  4. Some of us who will not be camping will be at Canyon's End motel in Meadview, my detecting partner Don and I will of course be out in the field to hunt and join in the Fri. and Sat. festivities. If anyone needs supplies or anything during the weekend from the "town" of Meadview, my cell is 520-780-0530. Can't wait to see everyone. Twink
  5. Not sure what you mean, but you charge it just like your cell phone, you charge the coil, the little remote box and the headset all at once with a three wire charger plugged into the wall or with the quick charge units you can have on hand to charge out in the field if you forget to charge it at home.
  6. Yes at least 4 friends of mine who hunted with Jim Kriegh will be there with me, and some newer friends who hunt but never met Jim such as my hunting buddy Don. Look forward to seeing everyone!
  7. In memory of Jim Kriegh, of Gold Basin-- he died 8 years ago today and is remembered by many here in his little town of Oro Valley, Tucson and around the world via the meteorite list. Twink
  8. XP Deus for meteorite hunting- I discovered that to hear Gold Basin stone meteorites and Franconia area stone meteorites the Deus needs to be in the Gold Field setting, and it does not show any numbers, just dashes where the numbers should be, but the sound is very clear. I even found a Franconia area meteorite which has been classified as one of the many different ones found in the collection area. Twink Monrad
  9. Happy Birthday Kat, and many more as my grandmother always added. Twink
  10. Yes, Larry and I saw the Highwaymen at Pima County Fair once, and have CD of all of the good old guys. Only two of my favorites are left, Willie and Merle- and, Jim Kriegh loved C and W oldies too so on all of our trips for rocks or meteorites the car was full of the sound of all of them. Thanks for the reminder. I miss Ray Price too a lot. Twink
  11. And, if not mentioned earlier, check out The Tektite Source run by Norm Lerman, he lives and breathes tektites. (and Azites or Saffordites, which are not tektites but are volcanic glass. I have hunted with him for those) Twink
  12. the surface is not typical of the numerous different tektites I have seen, but a very good question. Hard to describe, but they are usually dull or matte on outside, although obsidian or glass- like inside. And also the interesting bubbles and designs on the surface of yours are not typical (just from my observations... just my opinion) Twink
  13. I do not believe it is a meteorite. And, unfortunately, a strong magnet will stick to several terrestrial rocks/minerals. The colors and the surfaces are not meteoritic in appearance-- but keep looking! My opinion, Twink Monrad
  14. Hi Frank, You mentioned the movie The Ghost and the Darkness. Larry found the movie on Netflix , and we just watched it. You are correct, quite a movie! Action packed and lots of scenery too. Thanks, Twink
  15. Yes I wish I could have done both! Twink
