Last Updated: 10th Feb 2016

By Jolyon & Katya Ralph

This is a LIVE report, keep this page loaded for live updates - new images will appear as they are added.

And once again I find myself at HTCC. I just came back from a brief visit to Westward Look where I spoke briefly on behalf of mindat.org to the board of the Mineralogical Record. And in 20 minutes we have our own board meeting here where we will plan the next year of mindat.

Going to see second floor dealers

Hopefully the video recalling Rock's career will be available at some point? If the stories are anything like the talk I saw him give at the Rochester Mineral Symposium, they will be really great!

Sure wish I could have attended the "Rock Evening"! Unfortunately, I had to leave Tucson before it happened.
