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.
wampidy: For those that do not know me, the high on Saturday was a joke. I have never drank any kind of alcohol past one Margarita or half a beer, I have not done any drugs for many years and I have not been addicted to anything more than cigarettes.

wampidy: I am a firm believer that the non violent drug related prisoners should be set free so they have enough room to keep the efin child molesters and rapists for way more than the few years they get if they get anything.
