Subject: [meteorite-list] Hunting for Georgia tektites

Hi List,

I've been thinking about areas to hunt for meteorites and since I'm on the
southeast coast of the US, my choices are limited.

My focus has shifted to hunting for Georgiaites.

The map of the tektite strewnfield has grown over the years to include a
couple of counties in South Carolina. The Georgia counties where the most
have been found is Dodge and Bleckley in the central part of the state. Are
those counties still the best areas to hunt?

Does anyone have any other suggestions on good areas to hunt now that the
strewnfield has been enlarged? What type of terrain should I look for? Would
creek banks be good?

I've got Hal Povenmire's Tektite book from 1997 and I found a recent phone
number for him but that number isn't in service.

Any advice would be appreciated and I'm open to join with other hunters if
anyone is interested.
