More power to you, Edwin! It is all about patience and persistence, and seems to be especially so in the Sutter's Mill strewn field. But the Coloma area is full of natural beauty. As long as you remember to look up from the ground now and then to take it all in, the hunt is its own reward. :) Glad you're feeling better, and I really hope you find "the big one".

> It is getting hot in Coloma! Thirty four days in the area and not one meteorite have I found. Have been investing most of the time in what should be the large end of the strewn field. Thirty four days and I have yet to see a rattlesnake. I enjoy snakes so this is a huge disappointment. I bought a go-pro camera just so I can video a snake in the wild. They have caught over twenty baby rattlesnakes by the river in the campground where I am staying but I haven't seen any of those either. Lots of turkeys, lizards, coyotes, foxes, toads and bullfrogs. A few bobcats but no cougars yet. Did get to see a huge king snake but I hadn't figured out how to use the camera yet. It was good hunting weather this past week but is getting hot again. Hot days I only hunt until 1pm. Am getting about 7 to 8 hours a day out hiking. Am meeting lots of great people here and have looked at a lot of very nice stones. a number of stones are being found by locals on there own land.
