Geoff and others,

Great stuff...what meteorite legends are made of. In this case...in Arizona, which is great.

I/we can't wait for the new issue of Meteorite. I always enjoy your writing...especially in April. :)


PS.It is partly cloudy today and about 80 F here in PA...the flooding rains have gone for a day or two.


-------------- Original message from "Notkin" : --------------
> Dear Ruben, Robert, and List:
> Thank you for the recent posts regarding Franconia area meteorites,
> which were most interesting.
> I will have a feature article in the upcoming August 2004 issue of
> "Meteorite" magazine about the Franconia strewn field, or the
> "Graveyard of meteorites" as our friend Jim Kriegh calls it. The
> title of the piece is "Lingua Franconia: Deciphering Arizona's
> Meteorite Graveyard."
> Ruben Garcia and Mike Miller were kind enough to invite Jim and
> myself to hunt with them at Franconia this past spring, and they
> provided me with the most informative interviews, upon which the
> article is based. Sonny Clary has also been very successful at
> Franconia, and I had the pleasure of interviewing him as well, and
> touring the southern part of the strewn field in his company. These
> gentlemen are serious meteorite hunters and have made some amazing
> finds.
> Following our trip to the strewn field, Jim, Twink Monrad, and myself
> traveled to ASU, where we visited with Dr. Gary Huss, and discussed
> the ongoing classification process in detail.
> All of this is covered in the upcoming article in detail, as well as
> a description of some finds that Jim and I made -- primarily
> small-ish stones, but also a lovely small iron which looks very much
> like a Sikhote-Alin.
> I would like to invite you all to see a preview: here are some of the
> photos from Franconia jaunt:

> http://www.notkin.net/meteorites/franconia-2.htm
> I'd also like to thank Ruben, Mike, Sonny, Jim Kriegh and Dr. Huss
> for being so generous with their time and for making the upcoming
> article possible.
> Don't miss the August issue of "Meteorite"! New subscribers to the
> M-List should definitely check out their website:
> http://www.meteor.co.nz
> I hope you find the photos enjoyable.
> Best wishes to all,
> Geoff N.
