We started mining in Keokuk last year and are planning our 3rd trip this year - we started a tradition of going every Easter (hunt Geodes instead of eggs!) and also try to go 1-2 more times throughout the year.

Normally we go to Sheffler's Mine and plan on going there again this year. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We also want to try out Stephenson's, as well as a couple free places we have heard of like Wildcat Springs and Fox River. 

We stay at Hickory Haven and have had good luck there so far - the people are nice - most live there in RV's permanently and we run into the same people on each trip. The owners are very friendly too. 

We are hoping to meet up with some like minded people this year and enjoy mining as a group. Maybe share some info on other free places. Right now we are planning on Easter weekend. Another trip probably a month or two later.

Anyone interested?
