Zann and I returned a digital camera that we found to an exceedingly
successful and reclusive meteorite hunter. That is how we met and gained
the trust of an original Team LunarRock member and true desert rat, "Action
Jackson" We had the pleasure of having him join in on the tail end of the
June hunt. He spent his first days retracing the steps of a nearly
impossible to get to dry lake bed where he lost a friend, while on a hunt,
to pay his respects. Sadly, this fellow meteorite hunter was never seen
again after wondering away from where their vehicle broke down despite
search and rescue teams looking for days.
True to form, Action Jackson preferred to camp out in the desert rather than
stay in a four star hotel here in Laughlin which was offered to him for free
during the Southern leg of the trip.
A book could be written about this fearless meteorite hunter but he chooses
to remain behind the scenes and enjoy the hunt. A few List Members and
fellow meteorite hunters have had the privilege to meet Action Jackson in
field where is not afraid to live full-time.
