At this point we had lunchbreak with pizza(our usual meet-up food), then we commenced with everyone's favorite activity - TRADING!

After several rounds of trading, we proceeded to Han.T's room for a tour. Words cannot even describe the quality and quantity of this collection.

Let it also be known that there are more fossils in other rooms which I didn't even photograph; there's simply too many specimens to show for a single forum post.

Thanks for the comments guys. We are lucky to have a tight-knitted community who get together to share and laugh and trade.

 

And yes, Han.T's collection is one of the best I've ever seen.

What a great report. (And great specimens). 

 

Its always a positive to get together with like minded people. We 'fossil nuts' feed off of each other's energy.

 

I have to admit that I had to look up Singapore on the map.  I didnt know it was almost on the equator.  We have a Singaporan in my hiking group and now 

I know why she is so cold this time of year!
