I heard about a place in Kentucky that raises horses (I think?) and sometimes lets people come by and collect geodes from their fields.   Has anyone here ever heard of it, or better yet been there?  Are the geodes nice?  Do you know if they still let people come by?  All I remember is that it was somewhere in Kentucky, south-central-ish, maybe, they had horses, and if you call them a few days in advance they could move horses around so you could access the pasture that had geodes.  I've never seen any geodes collected from there, though, so I don't know anything about how they compare with keokuk geodes or anything about what they look like.  Anyone know anything about this place?  TIA

I will repeat my earlier post about STEVE G.    While I have not heard anymore since about the first of 2017, Steve was in seriously failing health.   I do not believe he is doing geode trips and I have not even seen where he has posted on any of the websites.
If I hear anything new, I will post it.       BOB

At the just concluded Cincinnati rock show I asked several folks about the latest with STEVE G.     The consensus is that he is now home after his major stroke and subsequent rehabilitation. He apparently has significant residual disabilities.       I hope this is all accurate and we should wish him well. BOB

Went of the trails at Beckley Creek Park found a dried up Creek and found some pretty cool crystals broke open [smile] Bob would you possibly be down to go adventuring together or anyone else<3?

My husband is a new rockhound and is using it for good vs evil by creating a beautiful landscape in our tiniest of front yard using rocks and fossils he's found.  So...I'm trying to be a good wife and find him a place where he can really find some amazing rocks/gems/fossils.  We live in the Cincinnnati area and would love some info on mining in Marion,Ky, or anyone we can contact to hunt on their property.

Thanks,  Joy

Hey! I love all the good info on this site! I am planning to visit KY with my girlfriend for some camping/backpacking. We really want to find some geodes while we are there. Can someone message me a good campsite that would allow close hiking access to a plentiful area?

And if anyone is doing guiding in the KY area, please let me know. I would love to schedule with you between the 19th-22nd.
