Pisco, Cola and Imilac
by Steve Schoner. "'Lost" in the Atacama desert searching for Imilac. Waiting for friends to return - friends that may never come back... Gads, what a situation! Pisco to the Rescue!
Ruben lives in Phoenix and hunts meteorites all over the southwestern United States. Check out his webpage with pictures of his hunts, finds and even directions to some meteorite hunting strewn fields.
Steve Arnold has been hunting in the fields of Brenham County, Kansas with his own high-powered metal detector. In 2006 he found the world's largest pallasite, weighing in at over 1400 pounds! Steve continues to find more and more of these pieces of sky-rock regularly.
My interest in meteorites started after watching a meteorite hunting special on the Discovery channel. I have always enjoyed the outdoors discovering new areas. Growing up in Nevada I have spent many days in the field. What a great interest to add to my outdoor activities. After reading about the discovery of meteorites at Gold Basin and spending a couple of days hunting I found my first meteorite! It was 100 gram complete meteorite. It was about one year later that I found my second meteorite in Nevada, and a couple months for my third meteorite.
