Hello everyone! Regrettably, it has been a while since I contributed in any significant way on the forum. I’ve found myself busier than expected, and I haven’t been fossiling as much as I’d like to. Anywho, I got out on a hunt today that was special for me. I came to this forum two years ago. I had just been on a field trip with the same geology teacher who’d led my mother and my aunts and uncles on field trips. I had a blast and learned that fossil hunting could actually be done in Maryland by normal people, a fact which now seems so obvious to me. I had been hooked, and now I needed to identify some strange finds. So I came here, and from here I was able to learn many things from many people, and I was propelled into a world I now can hardly see myself without, the paleontological one. Now, two years later, I had the chance to volunteer and help out at the very same field trip with the very same teacher! Though none of the students seem to have gotten hooked quite like I did, they all took home a fossil or two, learned quite a bit, and had a good time. That was a good thing to see. I’ll definitely be volunteering next year! Here’s some pictures I took of myself taking a nostalgic walk through some fossil/geological sites (privacy concerns prevent me from showing any with other people), please excuse my ineptitude at smiling for photos:
