Hi Y’all! June is upon us, and with it the hot weather. I’m working on my plan for going to California at the end of June. My current thought is that I will indeed come back to Texas this Fall to lead more field trips, probably from Mid-October through Thanksgiving, or perhaps all the way til the middle of December. You can look for a schedule from Aaron and me sometime near the end of August or beginning of September.
As you know, mandates from the government to ‘shelter in place’ or not travel can indeed cause me to change my plans, but barring something like that, I want to lead trips this Fall to get to see everyone I didn’t get to see this Spring, and have lots of fun picking up agates and other goodies.
Also, I’m still selling rocks by the bucket, and shipping them out. I’ve sent over 100 boxes of agate and other materials to rockhounds across the country via USPS, and every box has gotten there safely. I still have agate available from the Singleton Ranch ($125 for an unsorted bucket, $250 for a bucket where I’ve sorted two or more buckets together and removed everything that isn’t cutting material). There are a few buckets left of Stillwell Ranch material ($250 per bucket), South Larremore Ranch rocks ($200 per bucket), East Needle Peak rocks ($200 per bucket) and Ritchie Ranch agate ($200 per bucket). I have mixed agate ($150 per bucket), Agate from Mexico ($175 a bucket) and all kinds of other goodies. You can look at a complete list of what’s available on my website, at www.terismithrockhunts.com/rocks-for-sale/. I hope to add selected specimens to the list of things for sale, but I don’t know when I’ll get that done.
If you wish to get your rocks before I head west for the summer, you need to order them by June 15th. You can either have me save your rocks until you can get out here this Fall, or you can have me pack and mail them to you at the cost of $50 per bucket.
I hope y’all have a good summer and stay well. See you in the Fall!
