NV bound
« on: September 13, 2018, 03:59:05 PM »
Off again for 3 or 4 days.  Will be in the hills of Nevada hunting for about anything and everything that occurs there.  Beats having dreams about picking up rocks.  I like stuff that's still there when you wake up.

I have been having those dream lately too.

You wake up and you are like "What the hell is this? Where is all of my stuff?"

And then you go pee.

Ooh!  Have fun!

I sometimes have great rockhound dreams, where I find some really amazing stuff.  And I never have the problem of "now where am I going to put all this?"

I'm always dreaming about finding outcrops full of colored tourmaline crystals, huge quartz crystals lying all over the ground, piles of perfectly shaped beet-red 24-sided garnets the size of baseballs, or some such impossibly lucky outings.  Sometimes I am on a rock dig somewhere but it's like we are digging inside a house under the floorboards, or in a yard, or something.  Its fun to dream, but more fun when you actually find something like that. 

Too bad you gotta go to Brazil or Pakistan to actually find most of that stuff.

Good luck in Nevada no matter what you do actually find.

I'm back.  The trip was just what I needed.  4 days of sunshine, as much exercise as I could handle, and the end of a sinus infection and sore throat from the crap air here.  I feel a lot stronger coming back than going out.  And...............I found some good stuff so it was fun working on my  rehabilitation.  I wish I could have afforded another 3 days of it. I'm ready to go back.

I'll get more info and some pics in the gazette soon.
