More about me... I first got into treasure hunting: My parents took us camping almost every weekend along the shoreline of the Great Lakes. They taught us how to find Petoskey Stones and Lake Superior Agates. They always let us bring home any rock. (This is a good rule to live by)
My treasure hunting obsession(s) It was to find a geode; now I've found one (clear quartz) but I want to find some with colors.
My most exciting find: Dogtooth Calcite Crystals from KY; large Coral fossils in KY
