hey! we might be up for it! full disclosure, we just went last weekend but it was kind of impromptu, so didnt have time to tell anyone.

this time we stayed at coon hollow campground, and took some amazing sunset photos, and using my GPS we located a number of different sites and came away with a bucket of geodes, another of agate etc. lots of trekking through the desert, but the weather was amazing! february is definitely primetime.

we used blue-paint tape to help seal the drawers and nothing fell or broke this time. as opposed to last time..

Hey everyone, I would love to go again as well, but my problem was that I'm finishing up a night and weekend master's program and have nearly zero free weekends. However, this was a good nudge, and there is actually one that might work: April 4-6. Does anyone know of other conflicting takes that weekend? I might plan a trip for that weekend now regardless, but if there aren't enough others interested in geodes, ill shift it to somewhere like Anza Borrego.

Oh, we so want to go to Anza Borrego!

We have Mrs Mod's Three River's rally in middle of March, and the NorCal Casini Ranch Middle of April but we'd be seriously tempted if you did a rally in Anza.

Peter, we'll sure be missing you and Marie this next weekend while we're hiking to the bat caves at the Pinnacles National Park

Starting June, our travel frequency is increasing dramatically. I miss Pinnacles. Haven't been there in years, but I do love that hiking loop that goes through both sets of caves. Makes a great long day, but even the shorter cave hikes done independently from either side are lots of fun.

Start securing those fridge doors and tightening the lug nuts folks, because coming soon to a thread near you:

Awesome! I've had three large bags full of varying sizes from my two different trips to the Hauser beds. I finally bought a tile saw for our home projects, and made sure to buy a 10" so that I could also use it for the geodes I've been saving. I already opened some great amethyst geodes with over 2" hollow centers, and some beautiful nodules of different colors. I'll post some pictures to entice more people to attend next year.

We will definitely have to pick some different beds than Hauser this year. I plan on doing a little exploration Friday to try our luck at different locations, try to lock down a good dig site, and then come back Saturday with the rest of the group.

I also still want to do that river boondocking trip that everyone talked about last time (canoes? rafts?) but with everything so dry this year there aren't many good options.

I'm going to try to drive down from Washington for this if I can get the time off work...thanks for responding to my original request for another geode rally! Will look for the rally thread for particulars.

Boondocking for Geodes 2...

Hey everyone, for those still following this thread, sad announcement to make. Marie and I are actually moving to San Antonio, Texas for a new job and I'm not going to be anywhere near LA on March 22....So unless someone can take over on organizing this trip, it probably won't be happening.

Sorry for waiting so long to send this out, but I had been discussing my relocation date for the past couple months, hoping that it would be in April and not February/March. The good news is that we will be keeping the trailer and still plan on joining in rallies and organizing trips, but unfortunately they'll be in a different region.

If someone is in fact interested in organizing this, I can share all the info and help walk them through all the details of how to find the geodes, etc. but I just won't personally be able to make it.

And don't worry, I won't be in Texas forever--California is ultimately my home.

Our loss is their gain, Peter. I wish you and Marie well in your new venture and look forward to a time when our paths will cross again.

Darn - just as we were getting able to join your geode searches. Enjoy your new position and keep us informed.
