Nimravis posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsAs I was heading home from Georgia, I made two quick stops in the pouring rain to collect some Mississippian fossils at Anna and Vienna, Illinois. I must state that these are not destination sites, the area are okay to stop at if you are passing by these areas. First up was a stop at Vienna, Illinois ( I-24 and Rt. 146 Exit 16). I picked up every fossil so you can see what is available.

Hi folks This year our two week annual holiday is to Bratislava, capital city of Slovakia. We will hopefully go for a couple of days to Vienna too. Anyone know of anywhere to dig? Also interested in fossil shops. I doubt I'll drive there but may hire a car for a day or so. Last year we went to Prague and I hooked up with a collector, hunter and retailer, a guy called Jìri. We went to a couple of his favourite places and found trilos, graptolites, bivalves and orthocones. It was a great experience. I need to find another Jìri! IMG_1253.TIF
