  1. My Best Year

    After 55 years of collecting, hunting, making friends, researching, listening to those with experience and hiking thousands of miles, I am nearing the pinnacle of my endeavor. The restrictions in Washington state concerning fossil collecting is strict and many of my old sites are closed. There's ways around those restrictions and they're legal, but it's a thin line to walk, literally. I believe those restrictions forced me to a new approach that has become very rewarding. Plus, I've started donating my collections, it's gratifying. Besides, I can't take 'em with me. Here's another isopod and I'll add more pictures of Wednesday's hunt.
  2. Agatized Aturia Angustata

    Heavily weathered nautiloid, Aturia, from the lower Oligocene marine sediments of Washington state. Agatized. Some prep work, too fragile to expose further.
  3. Oligocene Intertidal Bonanza

    The last couple of weeks I've been hitting a sandy shale bluff by the Chehalis River, just west of Centralia Washington. My latest expedition proved to be the most fruitful yet. A leaf impression, found on a big boulder that had broken off from the bluff. I left it where it was. Splitting it off from the boulder seemed unfeasible for the most part.
  4. More Long Cylindrical Shells

    A little while back I made a trip to the Lincoln Creek formation in Centralia Washington and came back with some strange cylindrical shells. Some folks on the forum suggested that they might be ship worm burrows, but I found some more today on a follow-up expedition. I can now safely say that they are all fairly straight, and narrow down into a sharp point towards the end. I found a picture labeled as "Cenozoic Shells of Washington State" on the internet, and one of the shells in the picture seems to be a dead ringer for the things I've been finding. Unfortunately, none of the shells in the picture are labeled. Does anyone know what kind of mollusk they might be from? Edit: Might have just found it! Scaphopods?
  5. Long Cylindrical Shell; Tube Worm?

    Was looking for crabs and clam shells in a Miocene deposit near Centralia WA. Was shocked to see what looked like PVC pipe sticking though a rock that was millions of years old. Tube itself is rather small, only about 2 inches in length, and 0.3 inches in diameter. My best guess is that it's a tube worm's shell. Thoughts?
  6. Bone?

    Found this in a ditch in porter Washington. I think it could be bone. Is the brown on the outside some kind of skin and is the middle bone marrow? Would appreciate any information. Thank you
  7. Odd shaped concretions: crab homes?

    Hello all, My friend gave me some odd shaped concretions, and I was wondering if anyone has experience preping any like these?
  8. Bad Rock Crab

    A few months ago a friend of mine offered me this crab concretion for $30. That was for postage too. I knew this could be a fairly large crab, (a rather large conc), even knowing that the claws were a bit damaged I decided to buy it and see what happens? A concretions is almost always a gamble. As it sometimes happens, what he and I both thought was 'dorsal' turned out to be ventral. Dang!! Took me hours to find that out but turned it over and started again. This is a first for me, but im gunna prep out some of the ventral and all of the dorsal, with a bit of pincer repair. Lots of the front of the concretion is missing with some pincer damage, which I absolutely hate, (the reason I got it for $30), so this is gunna be another b-grade crab, but it should be a purty nice b-grade crab? Time will tell. RB
  9. Corycrab.JPG

    From the album Fossil Crabs

    I prepped out this crab for my eldest son about 20 years ago. You can see by the shape of this rock that it was not round in any way and still ended up a really good crab!!! A lot sticky though!!! RB
  10. 12 AUG 16 - Porter Washington Concretion Hunt

    Got back from my second trip to Porter today. Hit town early to hunt as it was going to be a hot day. Had planned on heading a bit East along the L-Line. Last trip I had a specific road I wanted to hunt but didn't manage to find it. This time I had a good idea where I wanted to go but about a mile up the road the gate was closed. Weyerhaeuser had it locked up and posted as RED status. No vehicles/Permit required. My previous trip on 17 JULY there were no access issues and was able to get way back where I wanted to....just couldn't find the specific L-number I had wanted. Sure wish I had looked longer that time. Bummer. Ended up going back to where I collected my first batch and did OK. Found three good sized ones that I'm crossing my fingers for....the rest wee tiny things with little promise.

  15. Just got off the phone with several of my associates. It seems that Weyerhauser will be shutting down the collecting and hunting of fossils in Washington and Oregon. Permits are required even for foot access and collecting of certain edibles are now restricted. Item 17 on the permit states no rock collecting. It seems that may include fossils. Had a suspicious feeling this was coming. I'm gonna be digging like a mad man until August 1st. http://www.weyerhaeuser.com/
