Go Up Go Down

Hello all,

Zaya's adventure started with a phone call to me on Tuesday afternoon. He called and asked if we could possibly go on a hunt for meteorites on Sat. We had not been out on a hunt together for quite some time and of course my answer to him was "absolutely " our hunt started out late that morning after the alarm failed to go off at 0500 hours! We finally hit the road at 0900 hours and headed for some fuel for our bodies before our adventure. Zaya's choice was Sonic for some french toast and a cup of coffee. We hit the road again at 0930 and arrived at 1030. Once we arrived we geared up and I hunted for about an hour with no luck. It was Zaya's turn next. He grabbed the GMT and adjusted the headphones as I sat down for a rest and a snack. I kid you not, a minute later Zaya yells "I got a signal!" I walk over to where he is at just in time to see him swiping at the ground with his foot! I can see the meteorite in the dirt but Zaya has not seen it yet. He runs the GMT over the area again and the detector screams " zip zip, zip zip" He moves the coil away and sees the meteorite in the dirt. Has he reaches over to pick it up I can see the smile on his face start to grow! As he is grinning and looking at his find the meteorite dance soon follows!! ''Awesome!!" he yells as I tell him it might be a pallasite. Zaya is at this point a very very happy meteorite hunter!!

Folks, let me tell you.... this is absolutely what it is all about!!! I will remember this day as long as I live and I am positive Zaya will as well. Good memories, a beautiful day in the mountains and of course the time spent with my grandson Zaya the adventurer and meteorite hunter! Oh and I almost forgot, his find is a pallasite and Zaya is elated with the news once again yelling "awesome" has he looks at his find through the loupe.

Enjoy the pics all.     Ironman

Farmdigger, thank you!  I will relay the message for ya.  Geeez 60 years! Shocked...now that's a scary thought!  I still feel young though!!!

Thanks Steve.  Along with hunting for all kinds of stuff, I also enjoy the meteorites we find.  Man you just never know what the signal is until you dig it!!

Tabdog,  thanks my friend.  Zaya gets out with me when ever he can and loves every moment of it!!!  It's definitely one of those great times in life these day
