Found 8 results

  1. Arkansas and NW Missouri

    Took a road trip today and although it was only 28 degrees found a few interesting items. Any help identifying, even a rough direction to look would be appreciated. 1 and 2 were found at Beaver Lake in Arkansas. If I read the map correctly, which is always iffy, they should be Ordovician in age. Wondering if I should break into the squarish looking piece (#1) to see what it contains. 3 and 4 were found just across the Missouri line from Grove Oklahoma. I believe the area is Late Pennsylvanian. The limestone (3) looks like it contains traces of water worn chrinoids(?). #4 May just be a water worn rock but maybe a man made fetish? The hole goes all the way through and would make a great hanging piece.
  2. Roadtrip from NC to GA

    Hey! I might be going on a road trip, from the coast of NC to the Georgia mountains, in search of trilobites. Below is a pic of the fastest way to get there. I'm wondering if anyone could point out fossil spots around the where the Tennesee, Georgia and North Carolina border is as well as any along the rest of the route. Of course this route is not set in stone and I could move it around to accommodate fossil spots. Thanks, Tyler
  3. GMR, stop #2 on our road trip

    Second stop on our road trip was gmr. We arrived Thursday evening. Friday morning, we had an appointment to meet George Powell and see his collection. It was an experience we will not forget anytime soon. George was incredibly kind with his time, knowledge, and collection. It was a sight to see. The fossils wer fantastic, well organized and beautifully displayed. George regaled us with many stories, and shared his impressive and deep knowledge of the fossils he has found. I learned as much as the kids did!!! We thanked George Profusely and headed to GMR. I had never been to GMR before. We parked in the baseball field lot and headed downstream of the bridge. Explored an area from the bridge to about 300 yards down. We saw lots of already-screened gravel piles in the area. The best condition teeth we found were Cretaceous. Found some great white fragments/partials and some very worn great white pieces. And a slew of various types of teeth, almost all we found were very worn- which I understand Is the norm here? We did not see anything like what the forum trip earlier this month produced. We also found lots and lots of belemnites, and bone fragments. We really had a great time collecting here. We found many teeth, belemnites, and bone frags. This kept me and the kids very busy, and kept their interest. Because of this we weee able to spend almost 4 hours collecting. A record for me and the Boys. I may stop back here on my return drive to nj to explore a different area of the stream on my way back home. If anyone has an interest in gmr and would like to chat, please pm me. I’d really like to learn more about the geology and stratigraphy of the stream.
  4. Hi all, in a few weeks I’m going to be driving down to Charleston with my two boys and our dog. We are planning to make the drive over several days, fossil hunting at each stop. First stop will be Calvert cliffs area. It’s about a 4-5 hour drive for us. I’ve only been there twice, would love some suggestions on which area to hunt. Other than that, I haven’t planned where else to go. We will try to stick to the I-95 corridor, happy to make excursions off the route for anything that would be interesting. My kids are really excited for this, and so am I! Thanks!
  5. Got a road trip with my son coming up last week of June (Want to be at the Elon Musk Rocket Launch 6/29 if possible). Starting in Washington DC. I know there are a ton of Fossil spots along the way but I'd really like to add a decent Angustidens tooth to my collection (Something Different than Peace River, Shark Tooth Hill or Big Brook NJ). I won't be diving and don't have room to carry my sifting gear, but I don't mind putting in a full day of hunting. If anyone is interested in meeting up or share a site I'd be grateful. Thanks, Kevin
  6. Hello Everyone! In a couple weeks my dad and I will be driving to Mannum, South Australia to look for fossils with the NSW Fossil Club. We were planning on stopping at a couple spots along the way to look for some stuff, Portland, Yellow Rock, Alestree beach and Jan Juc. We were wondering if there was any real good spots to stop at and have a look?
  7. I am planning a trip to the eastern townships in Quebec and was wondering if anyone knew of some sites between Ottawa, Ontario and the townships that may have some fossils. I will most likely be avoiding the Island of Montreal on this trip, its just too crazy to drive through. I'm not sure if there are any sites along the way, but any info would be nice. Thanks in advance for the help
  8. My wife and I have been fossil hunting in the Calvert Cliffs region (read: some beachcombing, some sifting, some stick-your-hands-in-the-muck-and-see-what-that-is) for a year or so now, and we're slowly starting to feel like seasoned vets on that front. We're getting ready, however, to take a road trip to Niagara Falls, and we're looking for some solid fossil hunting locations to hit along the way. We'd love to hit a good trilobite site in north PA or western NY state, and possibly also somewhere for ferns and other similarly aged fossils in Schuylkill County PA or thereabouts on the return trip. The fact that it's the dead of winter may present some issues, but we are looking for recommendations for fairly easily accessible sites along our route. To summarize it, consider a straight line path from Washington (DC), to State College (PA), to Jamestown (NY), to Niagara Falls (ON), to Binghamton (NY), and back south to DC via I-81 to either I-83 or I-476. I understand that the Penn Dixie site in Hamburg is closed to the public until May. Is it possible to get to the 18 Mile Creek site at this time of year without walking through freezing cold water (or slip-sliding our way over ice)? If not, any suggestions for productive alternate sites would be great. We are not necessarily looking for a proverbial gold mine -- just somewhere that we can reasonably drive to and park, walk a ways, maybe break a few rocks and bring home some interesting things. Sending me a PM is fine if discretion about locations is warranted. Same deal goes for good sites along the I-81 Corridor in PA. Preference given to places that don't require us to own hip boots, waders, or jackhammers... One final question for now -- anyone know if there would be any customs issues if we had a bunch of fossils in our car when crossing over into Ontario? Thanks for reading and for any recommendations! Edited to add: if this belongs in a different sub-forum (i.e. this one is maybe for completed trips only?) -- sorry, please feel free to delete/move it!
