  1. As far as the firewood rules go, it’s the same here, you aren’t allowed to drive more than a vehicle+trailer length off designated trails to retrieve wood. They changed it in 2016 I believe. Prior to that you were pretty much allowed to drive anywhere to pick up wood. All the easy wood is gone, you have to be pretty determined ,to fill a trailer with good wood, now that you can’t leave the road for it. It does make it harder for firewood, but I’m suprised they ever allowed people to drive anywhere they wanted. One person can drive through a field once and the tracks will be there for years, once there’s one set of tracks it’s not long before someone else drives down it and it becomes a road. I feel like a lot of guys have some common sense and would not be obnoxious about the things they do out there. There’s too many who don’t have any common sense. It’s hunting season right now, and the amount of trash and destruction in the woods out here from these guys is ridiculous. Despite the roads being closed guys are still making new ones. Guys in UTVs are out there doing donuts in riparian areas and blazing new trails without thinking twice. Just tearing it up and treating it like their personal playground with no rules . Why is it like 90% of hunters are incapable of burying their toilet paper? It’s gross the mess some of these guys leave behind. We definitely need some kind of rules/oversight because there are way too many idiots out there with no common sense. I love the forest. I hope regulating it more will keep the weekend warrior dumbasses using it for a playground out. If crap wasn’t getting torn up and destroyed they wouldn’t be regulating it. I’d like to hear what some of the guys against the road closures think could be done to curb the problems that led to this decision.

  3. Will.....the third comment down in the Facebook link that you posted explains it’s not a meteor. There is the post if anyone is interested.....
  4. I only commented because you threatened to block people now. I am upset because you are threatening to remove the one aspect of this thread that makes it entertaining. I really enjoy reading this thread, for entertainment purposes, now you are threatening to remove the entertaining part and make it what?.....an educational thread? You will lose your audience pretty quick if you do that. I promise no one is returning to this thread to read replies because they are unsure if that sandstone came from space.
  5. Are you saying you are getting messages from someone on this forum telling you to pursue this path? I find that really hard to believe. Why don’t any of your supporters care to comment with their encouraging messages and supporting ideas on the thread you made? It’s strange that they will only offer support to your cause in secrecy, via private message. Sounds like finding a sandstone meteorite is some real cloak and dagger type stuff. Even the “supporters” who believe in your cause have chosen to remain anonymous so far.... In all honesty Odin you are really being dense about this. You got some real educated guys who’ve devoted YEARS to this subject giving you advice. You are not even smart enough to recognize wisdom when it’s being freely giving to you. You are getting freebies here from veterans. This is not normally free info man! These guys put in the time and have the knowledge and are good enough to share it with us. Not only are you getting free advice from some dudes who’ve been around twice as long as you, but your throwing the advice back in their face with insults. You are all mixed up man. If you want to get passionate about finding a meteorite you’ve got guys here who will help. What you’ve chosen to be passionate about is obsessing over that one rock you’ve found, which really has nothing to do meteorites, AND, at the same time, claiming all the other guys who’ve been doing it long before you even thought about your first meteorite, are completely wrong? Can I ask what amazing accomplishments have you achieved in your life that give you the amount of hubris and misplaced self confidence you have?
  6. Thanks, I found quite a few more small chunks and pieces of turquoise there, but that was the nicest looking one. I’m hoping it’s pretty stable because it’s been tumbled down the wash for quite a ways and didn’t break up. I think the area is called orogrande, it was about 30 minutes south of Alamogordo in a small cluster of hills just off the highway. The guy who invited us out had several claims there and was doing an outing for some soldiers from the nearby base and we got to tag along with them. It was really cool.
  7. Here’s a few cool things I’ve found. The yellow stuff is some neat petrified wood, they are pretty big chunks with neat textures, and it’s agatized inside. The one square piece has a knot hole in it. Also some pics of some fluorite from a spot Bedrock Bob showed me. I met a guy who has a couple claims in a turquoise area, he took us out and let us hunt around and keep any pieces we found. I found that nugget in the wash a long way from the main source.
  8. I should probably mention I’ve never found one, I’m still an absolute novice even with metal detecting gold. I have, however, really been enjoying the meteorite forum lately!
  9. Absolutely! Some guys just have a knack for turning normal rocks into priceless meteorites. Some form of Alchemy perhaps? He is probably one of the chosen few who uses only a camera and his eyes to hunt and is able to find several every trip, even in the dark!
  10. I went to buy a pallasite, but decided to get the used iPhone and a craftsman lawn mower instead. I was wary at first, but when I saw his profile pic, with the face mask and middle finger, I felt confident I was getting a square deal.
  11. “Everyone was smiling when me left” ...me bets they were
  12. See Edge, There is a glimmer of hope, not everyone gets away with it.
  13. They work well, if this one ever wears out I’ll try the harbor freight one. It’s nice standing next to this machine to sharpen instead of kneeling on the ground trying to tackle it with a file. Speaking of rakers...one thing I noticed when filing them, is that most of them file pretty easy. Every once in a while on a chain I’ll start on a raker and it feels super hard. Some of them take one stroke of the file. Then I’ll hit a “hard” one and have to use a lot of pressure and several passes before the metal even starts to grind away. I don’t know what’s causing that. Another thing I’ve wondered, when using the saw for hours at a time, does anyone wear respiratory protection? I have just been using a bandana and I can sure feel the stress on my lungs after cutting all day. Do any face masks filter out the harmful particles that are in the exhaust?
  14. This thread needs an update. I finally got time to go over this machine a little better. I can see a few spots where the table is not sealing well enough just because some of the stripping on and around the edges is old and rough and needs replaced. Also looks like I need to give the fan apparatus a quick cleaning. I didn’t go over it well enough when I bought it before taking it out to use. I’m getting it all set up and will be running dirt through it soon. It’s a great machine, it looks like the issues I was having with it are just because I didn’t give it a tune up first.
