Hi Y’all! I’ve gotten lots of responses from rockhunters concerning the schedule in October. Although I had several requests for changes, I had lots of people sign up for most of the trips, so I’ve decided to keep the schedule as it is. I’ll certainly keep your suggestions in mind for the rest of the Fall schedule, which will be coming out in another email very soon.
The prices for the ranches are also unchanged from last year: The Ritchie Ranch is $10 entrance fee and $1 per lb. for the agate you take; the South Larremore Ranch is $40 per person if I take you, and $50 per person if Jean or Brian Larremore take you; the Singleton Ranch is $50 per person, which gets you up to a 5-gallon bucket of agate (if you find more it’s $40 per bucket, charged in ¼ bucket increments), and East Needle Peak is $40 per person. The Stillwell Ranch has no admission fee and charged 50 cents per pound for good rocks. The price for the Rollin’ Rock club membership, which is required for my hunts, is also unchanged at $10 per calendar year for a single membership and $16 per calendar year for a dual membership. And the price for my guide services is still the same: free, but you can give me a gratuity if you feel so inclined.
So here’s the October schedule, with the addition of starting times. All trips begin in front of the office at the Antelope Lodge, 2310 W. Highway 90 in Alpine. However, if you’re staying someplace that is closer to the hunt site than Alpine is, let me know and I’ll try to make arrangements to meet you someplace along the route.
See you soon,
