Similar to rockhounding, but smaller! I've been collecting sand from around the world, not just on overlanding trips, but also during my time in the Navy and on family vacations and work related travel as well. Let's see some of your favorite sand photos! Here are a few of mine:

Ash Meadow, CA, green zeolite.

Oak Springs, NV, quartz sand and trilobites!

Deb usually brings back some sand from trips we take. Black sand from Hawaii, Florida, Bermuda, and probably others.

In a sense yes. Our trucks rear bumper catches and collects just about everything we go through then it gets deposited into my driveway when i wash it all out. But no i havent collected sand in bottles since i was a little kid.
