A note from Rex:
This is a reminder of the trip to the Edna and Keystone Mines – I have not checked out the road this year but last year it was in good condition and I will have loppers and a saw along just in case .
We will meet at Safeway parking in Chewelah at 9 AM Sunday June 27th.

(Here is an email from Rex Barrans, <firstname.lastname@example.org>, about the Crystal Prospect Dig scheduled for June 13th. If you intend to go, email him first so they will expect you. Also remember that this trip needs a permit available from Levi’s mini-mart in Deer Park-(license number,signature, $10 per car))
I was up to the dig location to check on the road Tuesday ; the road is good but the dig area has been logged and Is a waste land . We will have to explore and start new digs as the old ones have been filled with dirt and brush . That may be an advantage as the old digs were not very productive any more, and now with almost all the trees gone it may make finding a good spot easier .
The Allen road is up the springdale/Hunters road but that is a terribly bad road and there is a better one that we will take. If it is more convenient for you we can meet you in Valley or Springdale rather than Chewelah ,but be sure to let me know where so we don’t miss you .
I am going to forward this to my list of rockhounds so they will know what to expect
