  1. Well, I hope it will be spectacular. Thank you to Santa's Helpers and everyone who participated last year to make it such a success. I think Doren would have been very pleased. Never forgotten. Thanks, once again to my wonderful helpers and advisors from last year, @Darktoothr @Bobby Rico @fifbrindacier and @sixgill pete. Honestly, your assistance was worth more than you know. Invaluable. I hope I can rely on you once again when I start to panic. If you, or anyone else, has any suggestions or advice Welcome to the S
  2. Hey all. I just wanted to pick everyone’s brain and see everyone’s opinion on what trilobite they believe is necessary for a collection. I think it is safe to say all collections both beginner and advanced should have at least one Utah Elrathia kingii. While super common and pretty inexpensive in terms of trilobites they are one of the classic images when someone thinks trilobite and so for that reason I believe they are a perfect specimen for any collection.
  3. Okay gang....let's have some fun....a contest of sorts... As an experiment, I'm going to have you folks here at the TFF choose the location my fossil hunting/camping excursion for May 2021... There are a few minimum requirements, however: Will take place over the Last Weekend in May, 2021 so I have up to 5 days available. Keep in mind, I allow a day to get there and a day to get back) Location must be no more than a ten hour drive from Omaha, Nebraska. (You can use Google maps or the like to figure drive time from Omaha) Primitive/Disbursed/Car camping mu
  4. We've been having a warm spell here in southern Germany for almost a week now, which gave me the chance to check out my favorite spot in the ditch in the Danube Valley where the Kimmeridgian ammonites can be found. I had done a drive-by about ten days ago to check it out, but although the snow was almost gone at the Lake of Constance where I live, it was still piled up to half a meter in the valley. But like I already mentioned, the temps have been well up over freezing for a good week now, so I figured I'd have another go. Knowing that the spot I wanted to work at was in a hollow, I took alon
  5. , My good friend Doren has done this for the last couple of years, so please excuse me and my other friends; Sophie @fifbrindacier who will be helping with the European side of things, Dave @Darktooth helping on the USA side and Pete @sixgill pete for his experience in this field. And @Bobby Rico for his help too. (see below). Anyway: Mostly quoting Doren from last year: Welcome to this years' Secret Santa Exchange. 2020 a FESTIVAL OF FOSSILS. The Secret Santa exchange is when you enter your name into a pool and get matched with another player to exchan

    Kids found at beach

    My kids found these at the beach posting for kidos. Feel free to reply so I can share with them. They named them drumstick, hand or mitten and chicken foot
  7. Hello there! As it's getting nicer outside and things slowly turning back to normal, many of us are able to go out and enjoy the weather again. I journeyed to one of my favorite Burlington exposures just 10 minutes from my home. As it was so nice outside, I ran into a lot of friendly fishermen. Not unlike usual, its just me there for the fossils! My favorite spot I'm heading to has me walking a few miles before I start to hit the sweet spots. Along the few mile walk there, it looks like the beavers have been busy. You can tell as you approach the Burlington limestone alone by
  8. Hi all Due to the lockdown, I’ve decided that I’m going to clean out my fossil room. This is a room that is full of fossils that are not prepped, part prepped or I just haven’t got around to displaying/labelling or storing properly. As you can see, the rooms a mess as I don’t really use it for anything apart from storage. Any prepping I do, I do outside, weather permitting. Following a request from @Ash, I will post some pictures as I tidy the room this week. Again weather permitting. Hope you find this interesting.

    South Texas hunting id welcome

    Rock, fossil hunting let me know if anything like bone is present.
  10. Following the naming convention of others before me, I had the 1st hunting trip of the new decade (at least at Big Brook!). I was the only one in the parking lot 1/1/20. I think I've actually hunted all three holidays this season, and enjoyed the nice time in nature. Here are some of my finds. Andy

    Fossiling for Children

    The fossil/rock club that I belong to was asked to be part of a craft show in Morrison, Iowa this past weekend. The president asked for assistance months ago. I did not volunteer initially because it was a 2.5 hour drive for me. But as of Thursday, help was still needed. What I didn't realize was that in addition to my physical attendance, I was to put together a project for children!!! Now this is Thursday evening and I needed to be in Iowa Saturday. The president informed me that last year 200 youngsters went through their set up. So here is my project and results: I decided t

    Millard County Hunt

    I’m going to U-Dig, the surrounding area and Cowboy pass in Utah Late September. Let me know if you’d like to go. This is some of what I’ve found there but I have found so much more.
  13. A while back, I received a package from our good friend Adam, better known as @Tidgy's Dad. In said package was a small plastic dinosaur that had apparently been gifted to him by none other than @JohnBrewer. This means that this little fella had started his journey in England, made his way to Morocco, and had since travelled to the United States. It was decided after careful consideration that his name was to be Gorgeous George the Globetrotting Gorgosaurus. Now he is traveling the globe spreading joy and cheer to members of TFF! If you are fortunate enough to play host to Gorgeous

    Big Brook Treats

    I wanted to post a couple pics from this weekend. I found a few teeth and things I am happy with. I could use a verification on the identities though. Thanks for looking!! Andy I think these 2 teeth are both Cretolamna Appendiculata. A very nice fish vertabra? And finally my favorite bivalve to find in the brook. I can't identify it for you though. It reminds me of the giant clam that tried to eat Batman and Robin back in the 60's.
  15. Fun playing with the microscope camera, yet disappointing. After putting it under the microscope, I am pretty sure this Meadowtownella crosotus I found this summer is only a partial.
  16. Im going to Victoria on Friday for a week and visiting various locations including: Wangaratta Bendigo Ballarat Warnambool Apollo bay pt phillip bay (beaumaris) So my question is are there any good fossil sites around these areas that i could find some ancient treasures in? Thanks.

    Brownies Beach Trip

    Well, I wrote a whole long story about my first trip from NJ to MD, and then I hit some key on my keyboard while I was typing and it deleted or overwrote everything. So here is the shortened version. I left NJ at 2AM on 3/30 and made it to the beach parking lot about 5:45AM. I may have left later but my assessment of the tides seemed to indicate that low was around sun-up. I think I got it wrong. Oh well, there was less traffic anyway. I knew nothing about this place except what I could read on the internet and the advice from a few people in here (Thanks you all!!!). I was dressed

    Again, new member

    I’m not a person to try and show off or one up a person. I only want to learn and better myself without stepping on toes and enjoy what I do. I thank everyone for having positive comments and helping me on my previous posts. Here’s some of the finds that I’m pretty proud of and looking for opinions and what people think.
  20. Hi guys, this is a pic of my unfinished prep. I found this ammonite in a woodlands not far from where I live. Along with many other fossils, at first it was so dirty and clumped with hard mud. I've been working about 2 hrs on this now, I'm using a sharp scalpel attached to a pen designed for it, gently etching away any loose material to reveal more of the ammonite, there are some scratch marks left, any ideas how to get them off? How does it look also, don't think I'm finished yet any advice on how else to clean this, bearing in mind it's my first ever prep.
