  1. Craigslist is where all the hot meteorites are at, i like the documentation.
  2. Looks like a good day indeed, nice going.
  3. Well done man, very nice.
  4. Nice swinging ! your two ruled that zone, thanks for sharing.
  5. Nice hunting Frank, looks like maybe some desert chondrites huh? Did you get a chance to show us a window into the stone, or are you in a secret strewn field? either way looks like a beautiful day was had.
  6. Good night ! that looks like lots of fun.
  7. Today western man generally believes we have six senses to preceive with, but i have heard that ancient Egyptians were working with over three hundred senses. Maybe they were able to see things different than we do today, i don't know if they understood better than we do today the workings of our lives, but definitely different. Seems like maybe we have traded some of our senses in, and today we can see what we need to see through the TV ?
  8. Looks like jade to me, the Chinese have carved jade for thousands of years. Take a steel knife and see if you can scratch it. Jade will not scratch it is 6-6.5 on the mohes scale which is harder than a knife.
  9. Well how about the price of a ticket ? that is one of my preceptions, i don't know about you but i dont't have hundreds of dollars for a game where your favorite player just moved to another team for more money, and now they just lost another boat load of millennials too! What is so disrespectful about kneeling is that not what people do in a church ? One other thing is i think they are doing this on their own time, they are on the sidelines and the game has not even began. I thought they were payed to play a game and entertain, and if you ask me that's what they are doing. At the same time peacefully making a statement, that says Houston we have a problem! ht
  10. Now the view from i-40 is also epic and some of the landscape is hard to match, but i love living in Nevada.
  11. Does not look like any type of meteorite to me, what makes you suspect it is from the moon or mars?
  12. So after my little nugget find i was excited to get back on the river and hunt for more. Well this time i get down to the water where i found the nugget and start working some bedrock when a local guy on the other side tells me to come over to his side. He had asked me how i was doing and when i mentioned i have never found any gold larger than a gram that's when he decided to give me a little help. First of all he told me i was on the wrong side, and that he was on the inside bend. I thought i know this but i found my nugget on the other side, but i figured he knows what he's talking about i could tell his side was a bit more on the inside bend. I get more excited when he tells me last week he helped a young veteran out by showing him where to look and the guy found a beautiful 1oz nugget with quartz rounded like a ball. So he tells me i can keep whatever i find under a oz after that we split it. Then he says oh yea keep an eye out for iron meteorites! I'm thinking this is too good, and after 3 hours of panning it was feeling like i was doing better on the other side. My time was running out and i had not really found much but some fine gold, so on my way out i saw a hole in the bedrock and i just scooped up what i could and threw it in the bucket with hopes when i got home i would pan out some gold. No gold when i got home, but when i ran the detector over my tailings something sounded off, and turns out i caught a fresh water chondrite badly weathered but visable chondrules and free metal.
  13. Hey thanks everyone, this ties my record for biggest nugget, still waiting for the day i find my first full gram+ .
  14. Maybe coasters for big mug of your choicest drink.
  15. Pretty cool volcanic rock you got there. Are you a rock hound? What do you like to do with your nice slices?
  16. That's a good question Morlock, i am a wood worker, but have not had the chance to experiment with Renaissance wax, and the general idea is to prevent oxidation on the meteorite surface so i wonder too? Maybe you might be on to a good idea, seems interesting to me. Rust would have a tuff time forming on a layer of wax it seems.
  17. My wife and i stopped to camp along the Yuba river on our way home from a family reunion in Santa Cruz, Ca. When we got to the river the sun was on the horizon, but i figured plenty of light to go have a quick look around. Got lucky on the first area of bedrock i investigated and turned up this little slab, just over a half gram .6
  18. Sad but true, it was funny for a minute. Now this is getting plain boring.
  19. Hot dog Budgie B, looks like you might just get that last laugh, looks pretty good to me.
