I will post dates for July after this weekend's dig is over with. I am juggling a lot of field trips to my other collecting areas , and also doing some gem shows so it is hard for me to plan too far ahead. I have a webpage that lists all of the upcoming events , and you can check it out and maybe bookmark it as I keep it fresh and entertaining : www.digforcrystals.com/Hogg_dig_dates.html Keith dug beside me in a spot that I recommended and he did find some super nice gem grade carnelian. I was hoping he would send me some pictures

Yeah, At some point this week I'll post some for sale. These will be a little price because not only are they rare for this side of the USA , we are under extreme conditions to get them. We have to literally climb the mountain on foot. It is 94 degrees and high humidity on top of it. This time of year the ticks are bad and keith ( KAP ) killed a monster rattle snake 2 weeks ago. Accessing the site is something anyone of average health can do , but it is not easy.
I gotta tell ya , I love this agate. The pictures prolly dont actually portray that this is gemmy glassy translucent agate with vivid colors and interesting inclusions.
Here is my haul from Friday/Saturday of this weekend:

Hi Ozzy, So far I have managed to make a living with rocks , either thru my guided trips or on ebay. But ebay has went from a high volume for me and a decent living , to , uh .......................no sales at all. So right now trading is out because i really need to sell some stuff. I will send you a pm shortly though................. I'll make a listing for one big good piece of this carnelian for sale later today.

Fossilman: I'm sorry for a death of anyone,but that's not right,tearing up and looting your own town!!! The IDIOTS!! No logic at all!!

rockpickerforever: I understand a lot of the trouble is being caused by people from out of the area.

bhiatt: seen this morning a bunch of drug and gun arrests. One news guy was saying how it smelled of marijuana all over. Hate to say it but it will happen again tonight. A small percentage of ghetto thugs are the on trying to hype the crowd up. Bunch of bullchit.

wampidy: Too bad they can still have alcohol to turn themselves into real zombies. All weed does is make them mellow.
Aug 19, 2014 12:31:29 GMT -5
bhiatt: weed is the devil's drug.....kidding
Aug 19, 2014 12:48:42 GMT -5
PurplPixie: Alcohol is the worst, drunken zombies for sure
Aug 19, 2014 12:55:14 GMT -5
wampidy: I do not use either but I would much rather have a bunch of pot heads driving instead of drunks. All the pot heads do is slow you down and not kill you.

Fossilman: Sounds like the town might go belly up over this-hope not...

bhiatt: going to be a hot steamy night out there tonight. 90 something arrests last night. Lots of drug and gun charges. The main black cop that has been in the spot light said no protesting at night. I knew this was going to happen. The ghetto azzes come out...

Aug 19, 2014 19:14:16 GMT -5
Fossilman: Sounds like the 70's all over again....I remember that well...
Aug 19, 2014 21:13:01 GMT -5
bhiatt: they are out there again tonight. So far peaceful. Local news just started covering it. Last night it looked like a war zone by the end of the night.
