Hello Everyone School holidays started a couple days ago in Victoria and I started them off with a bang! My dad and I went on a two day fossil hunting trip in Spring Gully and the Mornington Peninsula. The first day of the holidays (Good Friday) we got up around 7 and started the 2 and a half hour drive up to Spring Gully on the outskirts of Bendigo. This site was abundant in Ordovician graptolite fossils and apart of the Bendigonian formation. The location of site was given to us by a fellow member of the NSW Fossil Club. Unfortunately the map they gave us didn't match up and we ended up on a 3km hike through the bush. After some help from a friendly local we were able to match up the landmarks on the map and found the fossil site. There wasn't many rocks to split at the site so we ended up collecting lots of loose pieces along the ground. Overall we spent 2 hours at the site and left with many beautiful examples of graptolites.
Merry Christmas to all you fossil'in TFF members! * , _/^\_ < > * /.-.\ * * `/&\` * ,@.*;@, /_o.I %_\ * * (`'--:o(_@; /`;--.,__ `') * ;@`o % O,*`'`&\ * (`'--)_@ ;o %'()\ * /`;--._`''--._O'@; /&*,()~o`;-.,_ `""`) * /`,@ ;+& () o*`;-';\ (`""--.,_0 +% @' &()\ /-.,_ ``''--....-'`) * * /@%;o`:;'--,.__ __.'\ ;*,&(); @ % &^;~`"`o;@(); * /(); o^~; & ().o@*&`;&%O\ jgs `"="==""==,,,.,="=="==="` __.----.(\-''#####---...___...-----._ '` \)_`"""""` .--' ') o( )_-\
It's getting near to December, but this year we are going to start early in hopes of getting everyone's package out on time Please be sure to read all instructions and follow the rules to make it easy on Raptor Lover and I Here's how it works: Anyone who would like to participate must comment in this thread. All you have to include in the comment is wether you are willing to ship internationally, or US only. You must also create a group PM including Raptor Lover and I, stating your address. This year, I am coding a short script to get our Secret Santa's as close to random as possible, but still respect international/US only requests Please Keep the fossils you are sending at a value of about $30 I highly encourage sending self collected fossils (if you have those available, for these seem to be more likely provide people with something they don't all ready have. I think everyone would enjoy having their packages arrive before the holidays, so you will have until December 1st to respond to this topic, and message us your address. Once you receive you package, please post the contents here so everyone can see but keep in mind, it is a SECRET Santa
