  1. Deep Springs Road (first trip)

    I made my first trip out to DSR today and, with some helpful tips from some kind people on the forum, I was able to find the site and know what to look for. Its a nice little spot. Near the road, easy to get to, and quiet. I didn't find anything exceptional, but I thought I would post pics of my favorites for anyone looking up the spot. Thank you to the owners of the site for let everyone come and enjoy it.
  2. help the NOOB (DSR)

    how this today at Deep springs road quarry. I didn't make the line marks on it, it came out of the ground like that. It is small, round and dose not look like any of the other fossils I got from the site.
  3. With fall just around the corner, I was able to get in a hunting trip with my friend Jeffrey P, to the wilds of upstate NY: Specifically, the Deep Springs Road Site, in Earlville. I met up with Jeff at our usual meet up place, and time, (6:00 am at a park and ride near Jeff - about an hour away from my home.) and loaded his gear into my vehicle. Off we went. We enjoyed some very nice scenery, once the morning fog lifted. Hills, streams, farms, and wildlife. We both saw a bald eagle flying by, and some turkeys, chickens, and a deer or two. After a stop for gas and some food in Roscoe, NY, we headed up to Earlville. It was, as usual, a good ride, punctuated with some great conversation, and some interesting music. We arrived at the site around 9:50 AM. The place looked like it had be worked quite a bit, with large areas of rubble from other people's digging. The weather cooperated nicely, - it was beautiful, with temps in the low 70's, and we enjoyed sun and some cool breezes. We got to work quickly, and finds came in drips and drabs. We both made some decent finds, (pics to follow.) Jeff getting ready to start the day. We hunted until about 5 pm. With a 4.5 hour drive ahead, (for me) we got on the road. A brief stop at everyone's favorite Scottish Restaurant, and a quick stop for gas, we finished the day out with more good conversation and music. Traffic was great until after I dropped Jeff off. I spent about 25 minutes in stop and go traffic on I-84 through Southbury. I got home at around 9:45 PM. Jeff is such a great guy to hunt with. Informative, supportive, knowledgeable, and often quite funny. I always enjoy hunting trips with him. Thanks again for another great trip, Jeff. Please feel free to add your finds here, Jeff. Hope you enjoyed the report and finds. Until next time, Kind regards,
  4. Quick trip to DSR

    Hey all, My sister had a friend in town and it was my turn to come up with an activity, so naturally I took them out fossil hunting! I picked DSR since there is a 100% guarantee that everyone who looks will find something. I spent most of the time there ripping up slabs for my sister and her friend to split down. Unfortunately a thunderstorm rolled in and we had to leave early, so there is a sizeable pile of fresh material waiting for whomever gets there next. The girls found some good stuff- brachs, crinoids, and a few dipleura & greenops cephalons. I had the lucky find of the day with a decently sized, albeit disarticulated, dipleura. I think the whole thing is there, but it will take some prep to find out for sure.
  5. Yesterday I had the pleasure of leading my local club on a visit to Deep Springs Road and Biggs Road. There was a total of 19 members, which included myself and my 2 youngest boys. We met up at our club house at 8 am. I was surprised by the turnout as not many individuals actually got in touch with me to confirm wether they were coming or not, as I had asked. We drove our caravan of 10 vechles to the site without any members getting separated from the herd! we arrived at DSR about 9:30. I was surprised to see someone there. There was a gentleman who I asked if he happened to be a forum member. He said no, but he has been on the forum browsing. He introduced himself and showed me some Greenops bits and pieces that he had found. He didnt stay very long after we got there even though he stated that he hoped others would be there as he had never hunted this site before. Anyways, after I gave a brief overview of my experience with this site, everyone for a spot, and settled in for some hunting. This group consisted of a few oldtimers, some with intermediate skills, and some newbies. I went into this with the notion that I wouldnt be keeping my finds unless it was something spectacular. So I gave away just about everything I found. One almost complete Greenops, and an nearly complete cephalopod were my finds of the day. The cephalopod was poorly preserved but approximately 7 inches long. Unfortunately I didnt think about pics before I gave them away. Pics were the last thing on my mind as the heat was intense. That was the only downfall of this hunt. Everyone was trying to find any scrap of shade they could find to get a reprieve from the heat. That being said, it did seem that most everybody was enjoying finding the various. Brachs, bivalves, gastros, etc...that DSR has to offer. After a couple hours I made the suggestion of heading over to Briggs. The group all seemed ok with hunting another spot that none had been to before. I told them that the prospect of finding plenty of Eldregeops parts and pieces was high there so they were more than happy to try it out. Once we arrived at Briggs I set up a canopy that I had brought in case we needed shade. DSR atleast has some, Briggs none at all. Just about everyone found trilo bits there. We stayed until about 2 and then decided to call it a Day. I will try to get some pics of the few items that my and my boys brought back but I am having trouble with my phones camera. It seems that my pic files are always too big and most times resizing or cropping still does not bring the file size down to the proper size limit. Anyhow, it was a great day despite the heat. It was also nice to help out my club by showing them a couple new sites. Somebody asked if I would become the new fieldtrip coordinator for the club. I dont know, we'll have to see.......
  6. It seems like an eternity since the last time I was able to go fossilhunting. Yesterday the weather was great, so I decided it was time to get back out there. My two youngest and myself stopped first at Briggs Road to try our luck finding some trilos. I was amazed to find the sight just as it was left back on April 27th when everyone left from the group hunt. I took advantage of the spot where @Al Tahan scored his Eldredgeops. The sun had worked its magic and made the matrix pretty workable. It didnt take long before I found a nice trilo. I haven't taken measurement yet but it is a decent size Eldredgeops, or one but the head is covered with matrix. The thorax and pygidium popped off during extraction but I bit of glue and some prep should fix that. We all found trilo bits and pieces with a couple possible whole ones. The sun was radiating off the pit enough that it felt like an oven for the hour and a half we were there. After leaving Briggs, we headed over to Deep Springs to see what goodies we could score. I saw alot of digging which probably took place during the other half off the group hunt. I really wasnt in the mood for serious digging myself so I resigned to surface scan and shale splitting I was rewarded with some brachs and a nice gastropod.there were many different types of fossils present but I decided to be picky. I only kept a few that I felt were worthy. At one point while surface scanning I saw a familiar sight. It was a negative off a large fish scale, like the one Al had found recently. It was still attached to the host rock so I broke of the chunk and brought it home thinking If it matches the one Al has I would give it to him. We stayed for about an hour and a half there and then it was time to head home the heat was getting to us and the boys were tired. While we were getting ready to leave, we were approached by a gentleman on a tractor. I thought I may be the owner of the property, but as it turned out he was a guy who works for the owner. His name is Mark. He asked if the boys enjoyed themselves and we talked for about a half hour about all sorts of things. He told me about the owner, who he was, and where he lived. He stated that they are amazed that with all of the people who come to hunt the property, they never find trash. That is one of the reasons the owner is more than happy to let people hunt it. We also talked about hunting, fishing, Bee keeping, and of course fossils. I showed him some of our finds and explained what they were. He seemed like a really nice guy. It was a great way to end the trip. I am going to post pics but it may take awhile as some need to be resized. I haven't quite figured out the camera on my new phone. But for now I will leave you with this pic. This is what happens when a bald guy forgoes the sunscreen and only wears a baseball cap. This is also how i looked last night when i went out for dinner and then drinks.
  7. 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.)
  8. 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?
  9. [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.

  14. 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.
