Sunday morning I went meteorite hunting in Intercourse, PA with two friends. A lot of the other meteorite hunters have told me they gave up on trying to find the PA fireball because the terrain is too difficult. After surveying the area, it really doesn’t seem that bad. Obviously not as easy as a desert, but thanks to the two new videos we found, the area I’m working with right now is really not that big. Once the harvest comes, these fields will actually be pretty easy to search.
We setup base camp in a quaint town and the people we met and talked to were very nice and helpful. We tried to stay away from the farmers on this outing as Sunday is the Amish day of rest and we didn’t want to bother them on their holy day. We did speak with some locals who were very helpful. I learned the names of several farmers of interest and plan on returning later. We found a few meteor-wrongs, but unfortunately no meteorites. All the same, we had a great time, learned a lot about the area and will be much more prepared the next time we head out there. We also had some of the best food I’ve had in a while. Jackey’s Amish BBQ is banging! There are a lot of interesting places and people in this part of the country. Here are a few pictures from our adventures in Intercourse.
