  1. Unfortunately this has been in a little cubbyhole in my desk for years - so unable to say location where we found it. We look for rocks and meteorites and really don't remember which trip it was. It is heavy for it's size. It is silver color - may look goldish in pics but it is not - just silvery. I know the pics are not good but I just can't get it clearer. Any suggestions what it is? TIA1FBC4556-03E4-4EA3-B9C5-78FD906C6202.heic B46B26A4-FF2F-4E8C-A542-2C78AA19CC54.heic
  2. So sad. He taught me how to meteorite hunt.
  3. Fortunately in Morocco the meteorite belongs to the finder and can be taken out of the country back home. BUT thank you for the words of advice. They are not taken lightly.
  4. We are newbie meteorite hunters - only been out to Gold Basin about 6 times. We are heading out on a tour to Morocco. Have several free afternoons. Sahara is calling my name!!! Can't take detectors, anyway everybody seems to use a magnet stick. We can find sticks there or take folding canes and can take a few neodymium magnets in the suitcase. How can we attach them to the sticks/canes???? Is tape OK??? or does that reduce the magnetic pull? Thanks in advance. If we get anything - will post!
  5. Thank you. I will post what we get!! I'm thinking positively!! Actually it doesn't really matter if we find anything or not because I just love being out in the desert and hunting!
  6. Hey Fred - it's Sue! Thank you to you and Frank C for saving me a big OOOOOOPS!!
  7. The wire is attached to the coil with a flexible piece and it looks like a hex nut attached to another hex nut. Can I unscrew these? This is an older detector - actually bought it from Kaimi Stan and certainly would not want to damage it. It probably has never been disconnected there. Thank.
  8. Just my 2 cents about protection. We're from Florida, so we travel to get to Arizona deserts. We don't own handguns. When we go out, I mail ahead a can of bear spray since you can't take it on the plane (costs about $8 to ground ship via USPS). I figure if it would stop a bear, it would stop anything else (boar, coyote, bobcat......). Will be interested in hearing any comments about this.
  9. Is that for me to fill up? Can't wait to get back out there!!!
  10. Had a lovely time in Gold Basin over the past weekend with some wonderful people. Special thanks to Fred Mason and lovely wife for taking me under his wing and getting me on the right path of detecting. Found my first one, then a second. They're beauties!!!!
  11. To Au Seeker: Thanks so much for that info. Will start checking again in January for March!!
