    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix
  2. Back in April of last year I started a new job based in Texas. I had planned to work remotely until we returned to the office and then make a road trip down to Texas that would involve making several fossil pit stops along the way. When the time came for my move to Texas, my road trip unfortunately coincided with Hurricane Ida and I had to sadly scrap all of my plans and simply hightail it through the Gulf Coast to avoid the storm. Fortunately though I was given off from work the week between Christmas and New Years and I was even more determined to not let my research go to waste. The delay i
  3. So, I had planned a long trip for this year and built a vehicle for it. However due to some health issues I had to cancel. However I still had the time off from work and the weather here in Omaha was not good for recovery. so I got some help packing up the new to me fossil hunting Jeep and headed west to San Diego. Plenty of time to burn and a vehicle with AC helped, so I took a long and inefficient route to SD where the VA has a better cardiovascular clinic. As I could only drive for a few hours a day and due to heat and wildfire smoke, I took stopped frequently and
  4. Salutations FF! Sometime next week I'm planning to come down to the Central Oregon Coast (Sort of around the Newport area). I'm planning on hitting Beverly Beach, Agate Beach, and South Beach in hopes of finding some shells and with the blessing of the fossil gods, maybe an aturia. Was wondering what kind of experience people have had at these beaches, and if there are any other places worth hitting in the area.

    Belated 2019 Road Trip Fossils

    Last year, to celebrate finishing my undergraduate degree, my girlfriend and I went on a long (9,000+ mile) road trip around the western US and at long last (a little over a year since their discovery) the last of the fossils we found are out of the refrigerator and I’ve finally gotten all of them photographed. Here are some of the highlights and best fossils we found. A rough map of the route of the trip While the trip wasn’t entirely fossil centric we wanted to hunt at a few cool spots along the way. We chose to visit 5 fossil locations, the first of which was

    2019 Hell Creek dig trip

    Yes, that title is correct I finally got my video finished and uploaded from last year's trip to South Dakota. This is a trip my son and I started making back in 2009 when he was 8 years old. Its always a fun time, with road trips and tourist trap stops, camping, exploring on top of the fossil hunt. The trip was awesome with us digging at a new quarry wall, lots of great fossils, but my gopro overheated a couple times and ate some of my footage. So I ended up putting this video edit on hold while I tried to decide what direction to take, and then I started prepping, and then I wanted to

    Arkansas and NW Missouri

    Took a road trip today and although it was only 28 degrees found a few interesting items. Any help identifying, even a rough direction to look would be appreciated. 1 and 2 were found at Beaver Lake in Arkansas. If I read the map correctly, which is always iffy, they should be Ordovician in age. Wondering if I should break into the squarish looking piece (#1) to see what it contains. 3 and 4 were found just across the Missouri line from Grove Oklahoma. I believe the area is Late Pennsylvanian. The limestone (3) looks like it contains traces of water worn chrinoids(?).
  8. Hey! I might be going on a road trip, from the coast of NC to the Georgia mountains, in search of trilobites. Below is a pic of the fastest way to get there. I'm wondering if anyone could point out fossil spots around the where the Tennesee, Georgia and North Carolina border is as well as any along the rest of the route. Of course this route is not set in stone and I could move it around to accommodate fossil spots. Thanks, Tyler
  9. Second stop on our road trip was gmr. We arrived Thursday evening. Friday morning, we had an appointment to meet George Powell and see his collection. It was an experience we will not forget anytime soon. George was incredibly kind with his time, knowledge, and collection. It was a sight to see. The fossils wer fantastic, well organized and beautifully displayed. George regaled us with many stories, and shared his impressive and deep knowledge of the fossils he has found. I learned as much as the kids did!!! We thanked George Profusely and headed to GMR. I had never been to GMR b
  10. Hi all, in a few weeks I’m going to be driving down to Charleston with my two boys and our dog. We are planning to make the drive over several days, fossil hunting at each stop. First stop will be Calvert cliffs area. It’s about a 4-5 hour drive for us. I’ve only been there twice, would love some suggestions on which area to hunt. Other than that, I haven’t planned where else to go. We will try to stick to the I-95 corridor, happy to make excursions off the route for anything that would be interesting. My kids are really excited for this, and so am I! Thanks!
  11. Got a road trip with my son coming up last week of June (Want to be at the Elon Musk Rocket Launch 6/29 if possible). Starting in Washington DC. I know there are a ton of Fossil spots along the way but I'd really like to add a decent Angustidens tooth to my collection (Something Different than Peace River, Shark Tooth Hill or Big Brook NJ). I won't be diving and don't have room to carry my sifting gear, but I don't mind putting in a full day of hunting. If anyone is interested in meeting up or share a site I'd be grateful. Thanks, Kevin
  12. I am planning a trip to the eastern townships in Quebec and was wondering if anyone knew of some sites between Ottawa, Ontario and the townships that may have some fossils. I will most likely be avoiding the Island of Montreal on this trip, its just too crazy to drive through. I'm not sure if there are any sites along the way, but any info would be nice. Thanks in advance for the help
  13. My wife and I have been fossil hunting in the Calvert Cliffs region (read: some beachcombing, some sifting, some stick-your-hands-in-the-muck-and-see-what-that-is) for a year or so now, and we're slowly starting to feel like seasoned vets on that front. We're getting ready, however, to take a road trip to Niagara Falls, and we're looking for some solid fossil hunting locations to hit along the way. We'd love to hit a good trilobite site in north PA or western NY state, and possibly also somewhere for ferns and other similarly aged fossils in Schuylkill County PA or thereabouts on the return
