  1. North Carolina Trip

    This will be my first trip to North Carolina and am looking for suggestions and tips. I'm staying in Deep Gap (think that's the name), but totally open for driving a few hours to find some good spots. Hoping to find shark teeth and anything else i can. If anyone has any suggestions about places to go please let me know. I have a week there and want to make the most of it.
  2. Washington DC- where to Hunt?

    Hi all, I'm going to be in DC for 2 months this summer. Does anybody have any recommendations for collecting localities in the area? I'll be kinda limited in terms of where I can go bc I wont have a car.
  3. Hey everyone, what are the standard tools for fossil hunting? I'm guessing a hammer and chisel. Are there any preferred brands? How about videos for teaching newbies how to use this stuff? Best, Chris
  4. Trilobites in Norway

    This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I found around 10 trilobites or parts of them.
  5. Fossil hunting in Norway

    this year's first hunt was not entirely successful. There is still a meter of snow in some places. Found some small fossils that I don't think are possible to identify. I may show pictures of them, but saw several large orthoceras and some trilobites in a mountain wall where the snow was melted (exposed to the sun). May have to wait a few weeks, after Easter before i can go fossilhunting. The area where i took these pictures is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad. The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silur, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The Orthoceras fossils i took pictures of is about 420 million years old.
  6. ?

  7. Hello. I’m on vacation in the Palm Springs area and I’m wondering if there are any good fossil sites within an hours drive? Thanks!
  8. This spring break (March 17th-23rd) my girlfriend and I are planning a trip in Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. It looks like most of the big dig sites are closed for the season, which was a disappointment for us to see. The tentative plan was to go through Kemmerer from Salt Lake (home,) and hit the digs sites there, go through Vernal to the Quarry and the Prehistoric Museum there, then to Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado with a possibility of hitting Price Utah and the Cleveland Lloyd Quarry on the way back. Without any of the digs open, it seems like we're just trying to find simple things to kill our time, but we'd rather be out doing more engaging fossil hunting or learning. Does anyone have recommendations for areas somewhere nearby where our travels will take us? Any suggestions for digs, museums, cool fossil shops, or even just pretty places to camp are all welcome and greatly appreciated!
  9. Sebago Lake Maine

    We will be doing any family vacation trip for couple weeks to Sebago Lake in Maine. Are there any forum members that live near there if you give me any tips on locations and types of fossils that can be found Near Cumberland county? I am introducing my kids to the fun of fossil hunting and would like to make that part of our vacation. We're planing to also stop at Penn Dixie in New York on the way up to Maine. Thank you
  10. Any Fossil hunting spots near Adelaide? really curious
  11. I will be going to Deland Florida in a couple of weeks. Never been there before, just going for a quick 3 day trip to introduce my grandmother to her new great grandson. I'm hoping to be able to sneak out quick to look for some shark teeth while I`m down there. Looking for suggestions of where I can find shark teeth in that area... Thanks!
  12. Hunting at Eastbourne UK

    Hi All, So haven't done any exploring or hunting since a brief weekend spent in Hastings in September last year (had a few small finds which are still waiting to be sorted) This is due to me being diagnosed and dealing with a genetic disorder which has mostly put me on my backside and I've been seriously lacking in learning more and actually getting out there on hunts. To cut a long story short, I'm feeling more myself and the flames as been reignited and I'd like to try to get back out there. I'm currently eyeing up Eastbourne and Beachy Head via Cow Gap. i was just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on the location, I've already set about keeping an eye on the tide times as from what I've read it can be a it of a git of a location for getting cut off. looking at going the second weekend in February so will also keep a check on the weather. Any help is greatly appreciated Many Thanks The Complete Noob
  13. Dad Needs Help

    Hey guys, my 6 year old son is incredibly into dinosaurs, other prehistoric animals, and, more recently, megalodon. He's said, for about the past 6 months, that he wants to be a paleontologist when he gets older. I'd like to continue to foster his love of science, biology, and paleontology by taking him on some fossil hunting trips and digs up and down the east coast. However, I have no idea where to begin. Any recommendations on some great places to go within about 5 hours of Richmond, Va? Also are there any places in the US where you can actually go and dig, find, and potentially keep legitimate dinosaur fossils or are all of those sites closed and/or you are unable to keep. Thank you
  14. Hunting near Albuquerque, NM?

    Hello all! Have to go to Albuquerque, NM next month. Will be driving back with a U-Haul. I want to fill as much of this truck with fossils as humanly possible to make this foolishly long drive worth the effort. Does anyone know any spots in the very-near vicinity of Albuquerque where I can collect? I'm not going to be picky about what I collect, I just want to make the most of the fact that I have to be there! Thanks in advance!
  15. Trilobites WV

    Thinking about going to gore WV for trilobites. It is about a 2 hour drive from where I am now, richmond, and wondering if anyone knew if it would be worth the drive or knew a closer area from trilobites. Any information is much appreciated

  18. A few more megs

    A month later and some more megs after several more trips. Not as good as our first few trips out but our collection is growing. I think the best find was the big gator tooth toward top right. We’ll be headed out ASAP for,hopefully, some more success
  19. Florida megs

    Hello, new to forum. Found these over last 4 days just walking around wash out areas behind empty home lots on ponds that were close to rivers. Others have found much bigger stuff but the quality of these really surprised me.
  20. Good fossil locations NE Oklahoma

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this community and to Oklahoma. My lady and myself are trying to find good fossil sites here in the NE Oklahoma region. We are primarily looking around the Pryor area, which is East of Tulsa about 30. However, we are willing to drive to find some good spots. We hear of the Arkansas river and the potential it has, and have tried it once south of Wagoner but didn't find much. If there is anywhere in this area please let us know because after moving from MN a month ago we are dying to find some good spots from Grand River to Tulsa areas. Thanks!!!
  21. Hello everyone! I am very excited; In 2 weeks I am going fossil hunting on the Jurassic coast of Lyme Regis,Charmouth and the nearby fossil beaches. I have already went to Lyme Regis when I was a kid and all I remember was spending hours flipping stone for small ammonites. I would need some advice... Where are the best places and areas to find fossils,I am really on a vertebrate hunt more than a invertebrate one but it’s cool to come across some aswell. I am considering doing a guided tour with a professional fossil expert from Lyme Regis. Do you have any suggestions/advice/addresses? I would also be looking for the best fossil shops around Lyme Regis and Charmout, I know they are a few, I just don’t know which are the best and worth it. Any English fossil experts? Really Appreciate all the help and suggestions Kind regards.
  22. Hello, all! Making a trip toward the end of this month down to Philadelphia from Buffalo. Planning on taking NY 390 -> NY 86 -> PA 81 -> PA 476. Looking for any road cuts or spots on that route, or nearby that route to hit on the trip. Any ideas? (I'm primarily interested in trilobite locations, but will entertain anything likely to be productive. It's a short trip, so quantity over quality is the objective here.) Thank you in advance! -Jay
