This last week end, I led our clubs (Kitsap Gem & Mineral) field trip to Saddle Mountain, Washington for Petrified wood. The BLM has set aside many sections (square miles) of land for rockhounding, and off road vehicle use in a great area for Petwood. This area is but a scant few miles from the Ginko Petrified Forest, and is well endowed with material, the prize of course being the picture wood with its fantastic dentritic scenes.
Here are some photographs of out trip, and the material. Woody The camp
A hole I dug with me standing by whilst a fellow member takes a turn getting out rounds.
Garry: As you well know, I dig the hole, get tired, so when having a break, Kathy jumps in and comes up with the trophy of the day. This time, I gave Dean a go at the hole, and he found a number of rounds, then Kathy got in and found the best of the day. I am in no way complaining about all the rounds I found. This was a very good hole. Woody
rockpickerforever: WTG, mr.mohs! Jim, I thought you were fearless. But staying away is probably a good idea. Woman driver, and new to towing a trailer. Look out, Montana! Moving forward, no problem. Just don't back up!

wampidy: I'll have you know that I am fearless as long as I am not in the vicinity of ANYONE MALE OR FEMALE learning to pull a trailer, especially if it is a fifth wheel. How big Diane? Hope you like it.

wampidy: Same as mine. I like this size. Do you have your shop set up in yours yet? It is possible you know if you are a minimalist.

rockpickerforever: Mine is same, 19' inside floor length, but more like 22 or 23 feet overall. Dual axle, toybox (drop own back door). How 'bout yours, Diane? Have you posted pics yet? I could have missed them... Nice size for two bodies and one dog.
