I am originally from southern Illinois, recently retired and interested on " rock hounding" as my friends have introduced it to me.

I am looking for events in southern Illinois and western KY.

I have Rockhound friends doing in from NJ and would like to have a plan for a field trip. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance. Mary Baldwin

Geodefest 2014 is the last weekend of this month, with Rocktoberfest the weekend before. These events may be a little North of where you want to hunt, but they are organized events so getting permissions is taken care of.
