Wondering if there is enough interest to start a new forum topic for rock/gem collecting and hunting.

I dont know much about the subject but am very interested. Maybe we could go on trips to hunt gems/minerals etc.

I'm game for rock hounding. You can combine hiking, rock hounding and camping all in the same trip. I need to expand my collection of cool rocks.

I used to have a rock tumbler, I need to aquire one again.

I'd be interested in going on a few excursions. If there's a new topic to be had, how about Geology, Mining and Rockhounding? Eventually Caving may need it's own too?

What do y'all think?

I've done a bunch of rock hounding. Rock hounding has taken me to many interesting places. I do a lot of cross country and I've always got my eye open for interesting rocks. I used to own a lapidary shop (home shop) and I still have many many interesting peices.
