Tom, nothing will help you as much as experience and knowledge, if not your own , then borrow others until you get time to develop some.
1) Join a Fossil club -- If you do not do this, you are not serious. One on the east coast if possible but the west coast will do -- especially the 2 fossil clubs closest to the Peace River -- Southwest Fossil Club, and FCOLC. FCOLC has a trip to the Vulcan Mine on Jan 10th, and to the Peace River on Jan 17th -- If you join NOW, you could go on both trips..http://www.fcolc.com The monthly newsletter is worth the yearly dues.
2) Pay the bucks and go on a survey trip to the Peace with Fred Mazza or Mark Renz. Look their names up on the Internet, Pay attention to everything they do, say, take you.
3) Find a fossil partner to share the experience and expenses with knowledge a little ahead of yours.
This is the exact path that I took starting in March 2009. Good hunting and see you on the River. SS
