Nice report, tis always good to see several forum folk out hunting together. :)

Hope the fish prep out nicely, though with the prepper you've got on board, i'm optimistic.

I'm looking at your report and the photos and the wonderful fish and thinking I wish I could have been there and thinking it's a good thing I wasn't, and thinking I couldn't have climbed up to where I needed to be and I know I couldn't have done it but wished I could. Ahhh. I'm glad you all got together and made some terrific finds. Congrats. I'm looking forward to seeing the fish after Kris gets his paws on it.

Mike, there are some lower levels exposed with no climbing.

It does take some effort to remove viable material from the cliff, though.

Nice finds guys and even nicer company! I would love to see those fish after Kris works his magic.

 

Wonder what @Shamalama and @Paul1719 found?  :zzzzscratchchin:

Looks like you need a good bit of determination and perseverance to hook some of those fishies. Good work!

With all your blood, sweat and tears it's Kris that I actually feel for. 

All these comments are really putting the pressure on him to put on his top hat and and cape to work some magic. :unsure:

Hope he can satisfy the anticipated expectations.

Something tells me he will!

This is super cool! I never expected a site to be in such a commercialized area. Did you have to ask for permission?

My avatar is from daughter. Probably how she sees me.

When we used to collect on the other side of the outcrop that is facing a Lowes we used to get permission from the manager there. Then he left and his replacement told us we would have to get permission from corporate headquarters. That's when we started collecting on the other side facing the back of the shopping center. Never asked permission there. Security is aware we're there and has never interfered. By the way, there's a McDonald's and a Chinese restaurant just around the corner. This place is so opposite almost everywhere else I've been.

Wonderful finds. I did not know where North Bergen was. Now that I know, the fossils are even MORE IMPRESSIVE! Your pictures look so "rural" but that myth was proved false with the help of google earth!! My wife has always wanted to visit New York City. Now I have potential reason to venture into a city, something I never feel comfortable with.

Awesome finds!! Sorry I couldn't make it this year but hopefully next time. I'm glad to hear that spot is still so productive!

 

Hey Jeff, are you looking at prep for that first one or keeping it as is?
