  2. To All I observed this event from the back yard of my residence at the aforementioned time and date. It was captured on my AllSky cam, see image and hopefully video. I reported the event to the Lunar Meteorite Hunter bulletin shortly after witnessing it,but they have yet to post. Richard AKA kgmrg

  8. Franconia, AZ. 10TH Anniversary With temperatures in the mid-nineties, but feeling like the triple digits, there was a good showing of experienced and newbie meteorite hunters arriving at Franconia to celebrate its 10TH Anniversary. As many of you know, John Wolfe is given credit for making the first meteorite find on October 31,2002. There are many that helped put this strewn field on the map with their discoveries, Lee Graylock, Sonny Clary, Ruben Garcia, Rob Ward, Bob Verish, Geoff Notkin, Richard Norton, but none more than Jim Smaller. Stan Santiago introduced me to Jim Smaller in 2007, w
  9. Frank C./ Bill S. That's all I wanted to hear. I really look forward to meeting you guys. See you at Franconia, Richard
  10. A lot has been said regarding this issue. On October 5TH a meteorite hunt in Franconia is scheduled to take place. What is the Forums opinion regarding this get together? We could all meet to toast the 10Th anniversary of the first meteorite found at Franconia, or cancel the event and stay home. Richard aka kgmrg P.S. I will be camping-out at Franconia on the date mentioned. Who will join a very proud American,who has earned the right to walk this land.
  11. That's a good question. According to some, the new BLM law states you can not hunt for meteorites in wilderness areas. Members on this site are currently discussing this issue.I fear we may have to cancel the Franconia hunt in October. Standby to standby.
  12. D-Sil I will be there sometime Friday morning. Look for my rust colored jeep parked on the south side not far from the freeway exit. Richard
  13. Bill and Frank I've been waiting a long time to meet you both, I hope you guys can make it. Richard
  14. mn90403 I use a Gold Bug 2 and a whites GMT VLF metal detectors, they both work equally well. See you in October Richard
  15. Saginaw Absolutely! It's the best way to meet people. Richard
  16. On October 5-6TH a group of us will gather at the Franconia, Az strewn field for a meteorite hunt to honor the 10TH Anniversary of it's discovery, October 31,2002, and celebrate those who share a birthday in the month of October. On Friday, October 5TH we will set up camp at the south end within BLM land. The camping area is surrounded by a Wilderness Preserve which means no vehicles of any kind are allowed in those areas. Bring your own personal camping comforts drinks, food, and sleeping accommodations, as nothing will be provided. I do not recommend motor homes due to road conditions. Reme
  17. Jeff In a few days I will be announcing the 10Th Anniversary Franconia Meteorite Hunt. standby Richard
  18. My total Holbrook finds for 3 days. It's better than a skunk.
  19. It was reported that the access road to the Nininger Meteorite Museum ruins had been blocked with a locked gate and posted "No Trespassing". Bob Verish and I traveled to the site,after leaving Holbrook to assess the damage. The attached before and after photos say it all. These are sad times. Richard
  20. Michael Fantastic job of finding those elusive Holbrook meteorites, and a Holbrook marble (glass ball) to add to it all. Again Congrats! Richard
  21. A group of dedicated meteorite hunts join up in the field for the 100th anniversary of the Holbrook fall. The fall occurred on July 19,1912 at approx. 7:15 P.M.; a group of 16 meteorite hunters stood for a photo in the strewn-field at the moment of the event 100 years later. In the middle of the group photo is noted Gold Basin hunter Twink ( sorry if the spelling is wrong). Also is a photo of noted meteorite hunter Dolan Dave with his first Holbrook find a 9.5g beauty. I was lucky enough to make a small 1.3g Holbrook meteorite find, along with the infamous Holbrook marble (glass ball), which
  22. Ben Outstanding! Congrats on you Met list post. :wubu: Richard
  23. Johnno Nice pics and yes it's really hard to want all those cool toys when you're a little short in the wallet. Richard
  24. What do meteorite hunters do when they're not hunting? They follow their other interests like visiting observatories. In the last few months, I have had the honor of giving tours at Palomar Observatory to some of the best and most gracious meteorite hunters. The only down side to giving these tours, was that they were not willing to give up their secret hunting grounds. Honored guests: Bob Verish, Moni Waiblinger, Troy & Cathy Ball, (Dolan) Dave & Pam Libuszowski, Geoff Notkin, Libby and Palomar staff
