Hi! I'm Babushka. I have been living in southern Arizona for a while now and exploring the nooks and crannies on public lands. Right now, I am hoping to do some rock hounding and also research for meteorites and mineral identification. I'd eventually like to get a better metal detector (one that works!) and learn the ins and outs of nugget shooting and also learn more about the legal aspects of collecting and mining. This forum is full of useful topics and information, learning so much already. It is probably right under my nose but I can't find the forum rules. Thanks!
