    All the points recovered approx 30 miles SSW of the Folsom site in New Mexico. Mostly local material, but other material is represented as well.
  2. New display

    The process I used for hafting the points was I saddled out a lilac stem (only resource readily available at the time) to make a bed for the projectiles. Then heated up some pine resin and glued the points to the shaft in the saddled out area and wrapped with artificial sinew. Was quite fun...

  5. Looking back.

    I am definitely enjoying them, it seems like they are starting to get in the way of other things I should be doing. There are so many "gem articles" between the covers.
  6. Looking back.

    I also remember these adds of days gone by, like in Boys Life, Popular Mechanics, etc. Not sure how deep they would go. My first detector was a Radio Shack purchase. The add claimed "instantly detects objects 22 ft." But I am sure the substrate composition played a factor on depth and object.

  12. Stopping to see eagle nest

    Indeed it is. Most commonly sited here on the high plains and mesa country in northeast New Mexico during the winter months. Spring and summer I'm sure they travel to cooler climates North.
  13. Stopping to see eagle nest

    Caught one by camera last week while out doing chores. I had a conversation with a long time resident of the area a year or so ago, she stated that years ago there was a nesting pair here in northeast New Mexico. One of the pair lost it's life to power line pole accident. It is so refreshing to...
