Herkimer Diamond Mine Trip

Oct 3, 2009

Hello Fellow Rock Hounds! -

The time has finally arrived for us to travel to the Ace of Diamonds Mine in Herkimer, NY on October 10, 2009.

We will leave from the Walmart Shopping Center/Shoemaker Road & State Street, in Pottstown. Park in the lot next to the Boston Market.

We will leave promptly at 6:00 AM.

The bus will not have a restroom on board, but we will make frequent rest stops along the way.

Please remember to bring the following items:

-a bagged lunch, drinks, and/or snacks
-camera (for the fall foliage!)
-sturdy shoes.
-a beach towel or blanket for the bus seats afterward (prepare to get dirty!)
-chisel (if you have one)
-goggles or glasses (for safety)
-bags for your diamonds
-change of clothes (optional) for the return trip

The 10 day weather forecast: today 10/3/09 - is for 58 degrees/cloudy/10% chance of rain in Herkimer, NY.

-Dress appropriately! in layers, and possibly a rain poncho/umbrella in case it rains. (Turn the Blessed Mother statues out the windows ladies!)

Don't worry - if it rains- it's actually a help! - the rain washes the grit away to expose the diamonds easier!

Remember - Trip in on - RAIN OR SHINE!

You can rent hammers and screens at the mine - but availability is unknown. Best to bring your own.

To get to the Walmart Center - Google or Mapquest directions to the shopping center - or -

Take 422 WEST to rte 100 NORTH - go down two lights - turn LEFT at the second light- Shoemaker road - (MacDonalds will be on the right,) and then LEFT again into the parking lot. Look for Boston Market and park in the empty lot next to it.

If needed, you can call Pat Cole at - 610-326-1225 Cell: 610-310-1545.

Thanks all! See you then -
