Little rocks (very little)for miniature vignettes under my Japanese Maple collection... and shot glasses for my tequila shooters. When we do a shot it's fun to choose a special little shot glass that reminds of a a placed we were.. and a tee shirt now and then. Oh, and I drive a Subaru Outback pjay9! Won't go into the political thing though.. 🙂 😉

Cheers!

yes, we get refer magnets from everywhere, and YES,
I am a rock thief from all the streams and
dirt roads in the desert. I have gotten old bones too
from the desert animals I have found.

Yeah...I'm a bit quirky!!

We kept it to the 'fridge magnets. I mounted two pieces of sheet steel on the walls of the "kitchen" to put them on. We've filled both plus the range hood. Cheep and small. The ideal TC mementos.

My wife's name is not Lucy, but she collects rocks. Mostly small rocks, but every now and then she will try to slip in a nice sized one.

We have traveled together to most of the lower 48 and she collects rocks from streams, rivers, and trails.

One of these days the earth will be out of balance due to her collection.


JJ...I'd remove this post if I were you, you'll have the greenies and the earthers on you who drive Volvo's and Subaru's with O/B old election bumper stickers on the back...sorry if I offended someone but really that is what this world has come to at times!!! Guns and tea..coffee puts me on edge!!:R :h 😉

Well, the obvious, photographs. Specifically, photographs of the entry signs. This often includes all access points that have entry signs. Over the decades have seen many of these signs change and then change back to the original. The most interesting story was when the Grand Teton entrance sign (Elk Refuge side) was stolen and a year later found abandoned in a home, in California.

Also, Postcards that I mail from of 407 National Park Properties I have visited, as well as state parks and museums of note (Norman Rockwell as an example). I currently have 22 persons on my Post Card Mailing list.

last year i hunted for old abandoned cabins to photograph.this year its going to be strange rock formations.

Another rock collector here. Just fist-sized rocks (and never from a Nat'l Park - those are memorialized with fridge magnets) I use a Sharpie pen to mark the date and location. They're stored in a basket called "My Box Of Rocks" and the grandkids LOVE to look at them and ask questions about the trip...LOL!

Note to self: please, whatever you do, do NOT let the wife see this thread.

She's got enough ideas about collecting stuff already. :B

Gonna need to buy one of those Wells Cargo trailers soon if she don't slow down.

STUFF I think might become useful . Years ago when we had a town dump my DW refused to let me go alone and started riding shotgun . Some years back it changed to a transfer station and she feels a lot safer .:(

We collect pint glasses from the microbreweries we visit. We have more than 100 and I expect we will be adding a bunch more on our upcoming trip to Alaska.

Jumbo,
this was the first thing that jumped into my mind! One of the best movies of all time! (The Long Long Trailer for those of you youngsters out there that haven't seen it)
