Because we're in the Motherlode, I am interested in a couple of new areas. The first is metal detecting. This area is a trove of good old stuff, so I am thinking about picking up a metal detector. I'd start off by searching our property and then go where I could. Secondly, this area is rife with interesting rocks and minerals. I attended a Rock and Gemstone show last year and found it very interesting. There's a bunch of geodes in the yard and I'm thinking about picking up an inexpensive saw and slicing some open. There's shows up here fairly regularly and it may be a way to pick up a few extra bucks by selling at a show. So, I'm asking if anybody here is knowledgeable in these areas and if you could provide some input for me.
