Hi All, hunting West, Texas for two weekends really got me hungry to go out and score some dry lake bed finds.

Here's my finds from the last two weekends-

7 chondrites- 3.1, 3.4, 10, 10.4, 12.6, 13, and 15.3 grams totaling 67.8 grams

Had a blast hunting for these and I can't wait to get out and find some more. :woohoo:

I just love this stuff, enjoy!

Del, I mean Big Dog,

Holy crap man!!! How in the world does a meteorite hunter get in your league!!

Way to go! All your finds are great, but that one with the chondrule is outstanding! Definitely worthy of a Rocks From Space Picture Of The Day!!! Where the heck are the dry lake beds in N.M. you got me motivated to hunt for stoneys.

Thanks for the great photos. Congrats, HOT Dog!

Ruben- thanks for the compliment my friend!

Coyoteslayer- not sure how much these are worth because I don't sell my finds... yet.

Moondog- not sure about the classification of these meteorites.

Dean- you can look on the meteoritical socities database for classifications in New Mexico. Here's the link-

Meteortical Society Database

Those are some real great looking meteorites from what little I know, I haven't had the chance to hunt a dry lake yet YET , I really never got a chance to thank you for the maps and advice you turn me on to out at Franconia, It's tough living in northern Ca for a newb meteortie hunter, just watch the web alot and you tube to see what you guys are up to thanks for posting.

Dean,

Those ARE some nice rocks but we dont want the "Big Dog" over here snapping up all the meteorites and taking them back to who knows where. Besides, we dont have a single dry lake left. They are all gone.

That chondrule is bizzare. I have never seen one like that. What nice finds!

Tim- glad to help man.

Jason- good luck out there, I hope you and your son come home with some finds.

Ben- Yeah I like that one too because how unique it is. I've found only one other meteorite like that only the chondrule wasn't poking out as much.

Wayne and Bob- thanks for the repsonses guys.
