Hello friends, I hope I'm not alone in feeling down after reading this.
While I don't know anything about the forces at work and haven't kept up
with any of the US Southwest issues, I feel lousy now, because here I've
been all along in the background enjoying every single hunting post Ruben
makes and his really nice web-page that he's work so hard with pride of his
work together with his son, and after I post so much, now I finally scrape
up a post to recognize when he is disgusted because of 'personalities'
making some wholesome thing like meteorite hunting no longer fun to him.

Ruben I'm sorry for being such an idiot and for not sending you some
encouraging words earlier for bringing some of the most adrenaline releasing
tales I've ever read and most beautiful pictures into my living room. Truly
they are some of the nicest and most exciting I've read.

Hope to see you in the field sometime again, this time not by accident, and
congratulations on whatever you decide. Surely we can find a hypoallergenic
sunblock if that would be all it took (did you check Almay's (NC, USA)
product line?)

Best wishes and Great Health,
PS I don't feel sorry for you: I feel sorry for all the tales you'd be
writing that I'll be missing.

Hi all,

It is with sadness and regret that I am writing today.
I've been thinking about this for some time now, and
today I have made my final decision. Let me explain.

Due to certain personalities in this hobby I have
grown more and more disenchanted with meteorites,
meteorite collecting and meteorite hunting.

Also, in February I was told by my dermatologist to
stay out of the sun. This is because of non-cancerous
lesions that have appeared on my face and hands over
the last year. According to him my attempts at
covering up are not working. Since I am allergic to
sun block I am pretty much out of luck.

I've always said that when this hobby ceased being fun
I'd cease doing it. I'm done.

To make a long story short, I have already taken down
my website and will remove myself from this forum
a.s.a.p. I will no longer write about meteorites or
meteorite hunting. I am walking away from all the
trouble and trouble makers. It's just not worth it.
Unfortunately, I'll also leave behind the fun and
excitement that I used to have when finding meteorites
with my son, or teaching a newbie.

I will honor any deals or agreements regarding
meteorites that I've made in the past.

Don't feel sorry for me or my son though. I'm sure
that we'll start doing all the things normal Fathers
and Sons do. Diamondbacks and Suns games here we come!

Thanks to everyone that helped make the last 9 years
