I've seen many postings over the years about paid sites to collect. Does the forum have a repository of those sites someplace? for instance- When my children were younger (1990's) we made three trips to Kemmerer,, Wy a couple of trips to Florissant, CO, a trip to U DIg in Utah, all of which I would recommend, although 20 yrs later I'm not sure how good those sites are. These trips are nice for people who are out for a (summer) vacation and want an interesting family experience. Besides, no one has to keep these sites secret. Sites out of the USA would also be of great interest. There are also many easy public collecting areas, where there are many leftovers (Venice Beach, FL), or endless supplies of material (like the 50 mile radius of Cincinnati) that could be included in the thread If there isn't already a thread (I didn't find it on a casual search) would it be of interest to the forum to list a pinned thread of sites people have used that are family friendly, or perhaps more exotic/expensive for those with more money and older children, such as some of the Nebraska ranches)? This thread could be used as a vacation planner, I apologize if this information is already in a file and I am just missing it. Many of the postings here are from that small part of the community that have the most knowledge and experience. The majority of collectors are likely more casual, but some of the young ones will be the experts of the future.
tbones posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsWhat's up people, I am new to this so bear with me. I am venturing to Wyoming in the near future by truck and was wondering what type of potential collecting sites I could stop at along the way? South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming fossil collecting sites would be greatly appreciated. As I will be traveling by truck, I will make multiple stops along the way to break the monotony of driving. Fee or free, I just need places to collect along the way. I am open to just about any type of fossil collecting, hunting and exploring so feel free to suggest anything. I appreciate it, bones
