  1. I will be in Greenville for work at the beginning of November and have decided to head up a day early to try my luck in GMR. After a few hours of research, my initial plan is to drop in at the ball field on Elm Street, heading down current to sift just before the 10th street bridge. It's anyone's guess after that, as I have no experience hunting outside of Florida... although I imagine it is similar in a lot of ways to the creek hunting I'm used to. Equipment will be minimal and I usually prefer to "dig" with my hands to feel the gravel I am collecting, but
  2. Hello! I don't see too many aturia specimens from Washington on this forum so here are a couple from the last 2-3 weeks of hunting down south in Pacific County. I've read they are Oligocene in age and come out of the Lincoln Creek Formation. What's interesting, however, to my knowledge most fossils coming out of this formation are in concretions. Does this mean the fossils you find loose like this eroded out of a concretion or were they deposited/fossilized in a different manner? Cheers! -Cam
  3. Hey everyone! Me and my family are thinking about taking a trip to the White River Formation. But we were wondering what some good places are to go fossil hunting? Thank you, -Micah
  4. Hi everyone, A few months back I went on a fossil hunt with the BVP to a clay quarry with some miocene sands in Kruibeke (Antwerp, Belgium) in search for shark teeth. Some great finds were done that day by other members, like a big Megalodon tooth, some large Hastalis & Galeocerdo teeth, a couple of Somniosus microcephalus teeth, an Edaphodon antwerpiensis palate and a Neolithic tool to name a few of the best... Unfortunately we weren't that lucky as we found only a few smaller teeth, but I was happy with the finds nonetheless First up some on situ pho

    Fossil/ backpacking trip

    Hey all! Other than fossil hunting backpacking is my biggest hobby. I want to combine the two but am having a hard time finding a good hike with at least 2 locations to stop and dig around. I was looking at some trails in north carolina but I know most places within walking distance of the trails are a no go on collecting. Im looking for something between 20-30 miles, not a big deal if it's smaller. Anywhere within the eastern United States would be ideal. Here's some photos from my favorite hikes last year. Not big ones just a couple 3-5 miles in michigan and Ohio and one 22 miler
  6. Hey everyone, So I have been fossil hunting for years in NJ and as strange as it sounds, I have never actually been to Ramanessin Park! As such, I am planning to take a trip there soon to check it out. Now, I have gone over the forums and just overall checked online regarding good places to start out, legal areas to hunt, etc. but I haven't really found any recent information. i am very much used to Big Brook...but I am not going to assume that parking, the environment, and where to search are similar. With that being said, would anyone have any first time tips for hun
  7. Hello, I'm taking my son (9 years) on a 6 day road trip from Evergreen, Colorado to anywhere in Utah. We're avid fossil hunters and spend a lot of time looking in Colorado. We're going to do a trip to Utah and i'm building out the itinerary now. At this point, we're entirely flexible. That said, since it's just a few days, I was thinking about focusing on the Moab area and then heading back home through Telluride. Would love your ideas for places we should go or stop along the way. Thank you in advance, we really appreciate it!! Dan

    Greenville, NC

    Does someone know if the water level at Greens mill run in Greenville, NC is at a level that is good for fossil hunting? We are supposed to leave tomorrow to go for a week but now not sure if the water level is too high. Will someone please help me? Also is there fossil hunting expeditions that anyone knows of that will be good?
  9. All, Bottom Line: After driving all the way down from Nashville for an extended weekend of “Shauna Time”, I am sitting in a hotel room in Andalusia, AL and need to develop a Plan B for fossil hunting due to weather conditions. I am afraid river hunting will be a “no go” due to the all the rain and potentially dangerous swift water type river conditions. I had planned on starting my adventure at Point-A dam. When I decided to come down, I knew bad weather may be an issue, but I had to roll the dice due to work obligations - my boss told us not to expect to take
  10. Natalie and I are planning our holiday to the UK, We are planning to reside from saturday 20 july to 24 july on the isle of Wight were we went last year. And from the 25th until the 28th we are planning to do either the coast of Sussex or Dorset. This is where the advise of the TFF members come in, what would you advise us to visit, either Dorset or Sussex. Of course if any member is free on one of those dates and is willing to guide us around this would be even better. We also take a bunch of Belgian fossils along for possible trades. (we are especially
  11. Hello for all. It has been a while to leave a post here! I am currently in Burlington, VT as a UVM student. Before the end of the summer recess (August 18), I traveled to northern Vermont consulting some articles about Cambrian and Ordovician formation located in Highgate Falls and South Hero. In this post, I will just talk about one trip to Highgate. I left my dorm around 11 a.m., and I get the Higate Falls near 1 p.m. After straying about 3 hours, I finally realized that the outcrops described as fossiliferous in the article are located in the private land.
  12. Hello again!! I visited the southern part of Humber river in Toronto, ON on Oct.15.Sun. Actually, I went there on the way to go to see new homestay(Eventually, I moved elsewhere because of the distance. My ex-landlady urged me to move out 'cause she wanted to give my room to her daughter. The result is better 'cause of food quality. Last one was really terrible). Anyway, the total distance was about 58.6km for round trip(Actually, the distance was about 32km from my last homestay to Humber river. But I took the subway after got to the downtown when I came

    Fossil Hunting in Eastern Iowa

    Last summer, a huge rainstorm made the river near where I live flood. After the water level had gone down dramatically, I grabbed my gear and started searching! It was so exciting, I found an almost complete hexagonaria and an almost complete bryozoan! I also found some giant sponges that I beautifully polished. Among other things I found were hexagonaria and bryozoan pieces, crinoid stems, and horn coral. Man! I had a lot of work to do cleaning, labeling, and organizing them in my collection!
