This Thanksgiving, I'll be in the Mojave Desert!

Howdy, rockhounds!

I know that I'm a bit late in posting info for the 2019 Thanksgiving Rockhound Odyssey into the Mojave Desert, but here's the skinny.

We'll be starting out at the Hesperia Rock & Gem Show, on November 16th & 17th. I'll take a day off on the 18th, to drop my show inventory and do a little recon for the first days of the field trips.

Field Trip Day #1 & 2 - Nov. 19 & 20 - Castle Butte, the Boron Area, and the Kramer Hills, California

Field Trip Day #3 - Nov. 21 - Turquoise and Travel to Barstow Area

Field Trip  Day #4 & 5 - Nov. 22 & 23 - The Calico's East, and Afton Canyon

 Field Trip Day #6 - Nov. 24 - Travel and Rest Day
