On July 15-16, 2011 I attended the 99th year Anniversary of the Holbrook Meteorite Fall, organized by Ruben Garcia ( Mr. Meteorite) with help from my hunting partners Jim and Wendy Wooddell.

I would Like to thank Ruben, Jim and Wendy for putting on a great event,but most of all to Jason Snyder (Jayray) and Stan Santiago ( Kaimi) for not showing up. :rasberry: If they had I don't think I would have

made the following finds.

July 15, 1.2g LL6

July 16, 47g LL6 post-3321-0-98856300-1311111737_thumb.jp

Thanks to all who made this happen, :whoope:

It was great to meet so many that have the urge/passion to hunt for meteorites. My 15 minutes of fame will soon be over.

I can't wait for fall to hunt Franconia. Some of the guys at Holbrook were talking about getting together in October.

Aloha Richard,

Thanks for the compliment, I think?:whaaaa: :whaaaa: Last minute plans by someone I have been seeing for a couple of years got me on a plane back to Hawaii for a week. I had a great time and so did she visiting with my family and old friends. Never knew a nice Jewish girl would like sashimi so much. My friends were impressed when she decided to eat some of the raw fish and other Hawaiian delites that even I dont eat.

Got to visit a few of my old geocaches and left some Las Vegas goodies at them and even had one day where we took in a four hour hike up to some waterfalls behind my old home.

I would have loved to get to hunt Holbrook with everyone but I figure I can always do it later on this year when the weather gets cooler. In the meantime go ahead and enjoy your marvelous find and dont wear off any of that fusion crust too much. Truly awesome find my friend and yes I am a little envious.

See you in a couple of months once the heatwave leaves.

Aloha and stay safe.

Yes, it was a compliment. You and Jason were missed, but I'm still glad you weren't there as it might have been you finding my 47g LL6.

I had no concerns with Jim and Wendy as they were too busy helping out with the event. I can't wait for the weather to cool down and hopefully

hook-up with you and the Hershey gang at Franconia or any other hunting grounds.

Stay cool,

Richard aka kgmrg
