need some info on looking for geodes in keokuk
We are going to take our first big trip rock hounding at the end of this month (August). We are trying to get as much info as possible to help us out with this trip. What we are looking for are good places to go that are kid-friendly, poison ivy could be limited. We are not sure if our daughter is allergic to it or not. Don't want to take any chances. We live in the southwestern area of Missouri and are going to be leaving on the 27th and arriving in Hamilton, IL by at least 9 am. We are going to be celebrating my birthday while we are there, so I am hoping to find something good as a present to myself while we are there. I have contacted Tim Sheffler and he is expecting us on the 28th, I have not been able to get ahold of Jacob's, and Hill Top Mud Bog has already schedule a dig for on the 16th. Also what other rocks and minerals can be found in this region? If anyone could help, even with a little info, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
