No.. Not crazy at all.
Crazy would be getting a friend to bring back some snow in a bottle from a skiing trip. Then keeping the "snow" for 15 years.
I eventually threw it out last year when I moved house.

I'm in the UK, email me at bilblio at gmail dot com if you want some good Northern soil.

Not at all odd. I always bring back small pebbles from my travels, and I still have a jar of volcanic ash from Mt. St. Helens that somebody gave me, like, ten years ago (I'd volunteer, but all the nice sand around here is imported from who-knows-where).

My brother used to work for a quirkly media company that had a musuem of dirt (and a fab website to display it).  I just tried to google it, but couldn't find it.  It looks like the firm may have been taken over by a larger, not so quirkly company.
