You MUST answer all of the following questions (ENTER NA for "no Answer Yet"), this is to keep out spammers. -- First Question - Are you interested in any of the following: rocks, fossils, lapidary, minerals, crystals, geology, rockhounding, etc?

The Utah Desert. But Locally, Stoney Run and Mineral Hill.

Would you consider yourself - Newbie, Novice, Some Experience, Experienced, Very Experienced, Guru?

I'd consider myself as having "some Expericence", I can usually tell the difference of a Jasper from an agate. I can identify some of the properties of corundum, beryl, quartz, etc. I've still got a lot to learn (and I love experimenting with rocks).

Tell us what you are most interested in about this group: Presentations, Exploration/Field Trips, Lapidary, The Paranormal/metaphysical properties, Geology, Rock/fossil/jewelry buying/Selling/Exchange?

Exchanging rocks sounds great. I've been cutting, cabbing and faceting now and would like to exchange my excess for new. I do love field trips.

How long have you had an interest in Rocks/Fossils/etc?

About 8 years now.

Are you close to Elkridge (home of our local meeting)?

Ground Zero!

Introduction

I am an active 60 something. Loved rocks as a kid but lost interest when my interest turned to the softer fairer sex. My interest re-emerged during a ski trip to Sun Valley Idaho in 2003 when I visited a local Rock Shop and got "Rock" fever!

What Wayne H. is saying about this Meetup Group

If you are interested in Rocks, Stones and Minerals, everyone here has the same interest and are very friendly. Open to Spouses, friends and kids as well. Do not be shy. We all started somewhere.
