  1. Hello all! It's almost spring, and that means it's time for @Kane and me to alter the geography of New York state once again! Current plans are to start at Penn Dixie on April 26th, then off to the DSR area on Saturday. Sunday is a mystery still, but we're working on it. As always, anyone is welcome to come out and join in the destruction, er... fossil hunting. Last year was a heck of a thing, lots of good stuff was found, and I think everyone had a pretty good time. @Pagurus, @JamesAndTheFossilPeach , @Fossildude19 , @Malcolmt, @Jeffrey P (I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting off-hand.)
  2. Trilobite head, maybe more?

    I got a little curious with one of the pieces I won in the end of year auction. Got a bunch of nice stuff from @Pagurus & one was wrapped in foil (thought I got sent leftover turkey surprise or something). Nice sized chunk of rock from Deep Springs Road that had splits here & there. Anyhoo, back to the curious part. I tried (carefully) to split it along some of the areas & one small piece had what I originally thought at 1st glance was the impression of a gastropod until I looked again. Then I looked at the area it came off of & found the head (at least) of a small trilobite. I had to glue the right eye back on with a bit of rubber cement as I don't currently have any super glue. It literally fell off when I blew some dust off. I took a few pics, 2 of the impression & 3 more of the trilo-head, one showing the rock behind it more. Has some really nice definition on the eyes. 1st 2 pics are the impression. Can I get an I.D please?
  3. [WARNING: As is my custom, this trip report is exceedingly long, verbosely worded, and copiously illustrated with photos.] (It may be a good idea to find a comfy chair and grab a drink and some popcorn.) Since Tammy's retirement earlier this year, we've been busier than ever. We finally made it to Iceland this summer and saw dozens (if not literally hundreds) of waterfalls in that geologically interesting country. While talking about waterfalls ("fossar" in Icelandic), Tammy had realized that I had somehow not yet seen Niagara Falls. Tammy did not do a lot of vacation traveling when she was younger but had visited Niagara several times in her youth. She decided it was high time I experienced the power of Niagara. It could have been a simple trip--a flight up to Buffalo, a day out on a boat getting drenched at the base of the falls, and home again with little more than a long weekend invested. Somehow though, I have a remarkable knack for constructing enormously detailed travel itineraries--and this trip was no exception. Our anniversary month is October and so with the prospect of some multi-chromatic autumn foliar displays we decided that we'd plan a roadtrip that included Niagara Falls as its underlying motivation. It didn't take me long to realize that there are a lot of great TFF members up in the New York and Ontario area. Additionally, some members from the Virginia/Maryland area suggested meeting up during our last roadtrip through the Carolinas but that trip was already lengthy and involved. Perhaps, I could combine visits with a number of TFF members along the way and do a roadtrip down the Eastern Seaboard? As I started contacting prospective members to get the idea kickstarted, the starting point of our trip changed and we tacked on several extra days to the start of our trip. My brother and his wife had just bought a new house in the north side of Chicago. He decided that since all of the family holidays (Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas) were already claimed by other family members that he would start the tradition of Oktoberfest at their house--first Saturday of October. The itinerary for our trip was still in its early stages so we were easily able to incorporate a trip up to Chicago and link it to the start of our roadtrip. We considered flying from Chicago to Buffalo and picking the rental car there but the cheaper airfares were (not surprisingly) at rather inconvenient times (who wants to check into a hotel in the wee hours of the morning?) but an alternative soon presented itself. Since one of the places we'd hoped to visit along the way was the Devonian Hungry Hollow site in Arkona, ON, we'd have to backtrack west if we started in Buffalo but it would be conveniently along the route if we simply picked up the rental car in Chicago and started the roadtrip from there. This also allowed us the opportunity of visiting the small town of La Porte, Indiana where Tammy lived at one time. Things were falling into place. Of course, that is not to imply that my roadtrips are in any way quickly improvised--I think I spend as much time planning them as I do driving them. Starting the trip in Chicago allowed us both to visit family and work our way through all of our favorite food groups (authentic Chinese, Indian, Middle-eastern, and deep-dish pizza ) before gorging ourselves on lots of tasty German food and Oktoberfest-themed adult beverages at my brother's new place. Finally, we were ready to start rolling some miles (and kilometers) onto our trip odometer and we picked up the rental car and got underway. We planned on making London, ON for our first night and since it turns out it is only a mere 6 or so hours driving from Chicago, we had a bit of time to drive through La Port. It had been nearly 40 years since Tammy lived there and (as expected) much of the area was barely recognizable and not much as she'd remembered it. There were a few landmarks still in place and it didn't take us long to find the house her parents owned in town. The main floor was the Chinese restaurant they owned and the second floor above is where they lived. It's always interesting indulging some nostalgia and visiting places from the past. After a bit of driving around town we picked up the highway and in time crossed the border into Canada at Port Huron. We got to bed late that night but we had one of the longer driving days behind us already. On the road again--and a stop at a childhood home in La Porte.

  8. This past Saturday I only had time for a quick hunt due to things that needed to get done around the house. Also it was raining and I had the boys with me. I almost wasn't going to go but the siren song of sweet treasures were calling me, beckoning me to come and find them. I decided to hit up both Briggs road and Deep Springs. I hunted both sites in under an hour and a half. I didn't find much and was mostly surface collecting. The boys found a few things. I did manage to find a my first decent size Dipleura cephalon from Briggs. The past few hunts there I have been finding more and more Dipleura kibbles -n- bits. It is raising my hopes of finding a complete one there. When I got to Deep Springs it looked almost exactly as it was when I left there from the TFF group hunt. It looks like an asteroid hit it! There are plenty off slabs and hash plates laying everywhere. I found a decent Dipleura cephalon from here too, that I think I will try prepping. There wasnt anything else that I really wanted to bring home so I was getting ready to leave but decided to take one last look. It seems that everytime I do this here I find a greenops. Sure enough, I spot one just lying on top of the debris. I really can't believe I spotted it. Even though it was a short hunt and nothing spectacular was found it was nice to be out there.
