Two slabs and encut of a three pounder , i will make a polished standup display piece out of the the chunk that is left. sill have to cut the base and will get more slabs from that . This was found in the overburden of the local limestone quarry . the limestone is 60 feet below the surface, so they pile the soil and rock to the side-strip mine . there is glacial till in them piles. this is a oldie around 600 MYO.
Thanks for the comments , Gary , it comes from experience, having found these in pretty much every state of preservation , from weathered to quartz to geodized , i have a eye ,so to speak ,for them. There is still a remant pattern in this one, the layering is still recognizable . When i get around to it, im gonna to post a line of preservation, of these and some different types of corals . also these pics were taken under incandesent light, this has better blue and white color.

I think that is a match to some rocks I found and thought they looked to be a fossil coral or sponge. I have some in polish right now and should be done in 3 days. Some has a pink tint, some a lavender tint and other is gray tinted mixed with white. I`ll post pics when done and maybe you can tell me if they are sponges or not.
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 down back door). How 'bout yours, Diane? Have you posted pics yet? I could have missed them... Nice size for two bodies and one dog.

wampidy: Mine is listed as a 22.5 feet but I have not measured the inside. I'll bet that I am the only one with a bath tub which comes in handy for the dirty cloths hamper. I can not imagine why anyone would want a bath tub in a travel trailer. It would take half

wampidy: The verison jet pack works excellent for internet. I get 5 gig for fifty a month but I have not gone over 4 gig yet and I watch a lot of the weather channel videos.

rockpickerforever: A bath tub, that's funny Jim! I have just a shower, but it ends up being extra closet space. Comes in handy for storing all those goodies bought in Quartzsite!
Apr 21, 2014 19:15:11 GMT -5
wampidy: If I keep this trailer I am going to take out the tub and make a cabinet out of half of the space. If I need to soak my feet (or head) I have a plastic tub for that.

mr.mohs: fyi-going to fix my umbrella with a hose clap! Rock on! Ed

drocknut: Made it to Helena. Had to head back before the predicted storms hit. Looks like I may be testing the insulation sooner than I had hoped. Send warm thoughts please.

drocknut: Mine is a shower only too but does have a little bit of a bathtub that is being used as a trash bag holder right now. Will try to get pics later.

drocknut: Jim, I am currently using something called fox fi through my phone for internet. Thought about getting the jet pack but going to try this with my current data plan before I shell out more money. Generator is top of the list right now.
