Not too sure. Later in my fossil hunting career I can come back to this question.

Now that is a spot I would love to collect because one of my favorite's is the Spitfires and there isn't anything like the sound of a Rolls Royce engine in one....:D:D:D

Before moving to Montana, I gave a guy detailed instructions to my most favorite gastropod site.  I found out before I moved that he got a permit of somekind, brought in a backhoe and destroyed the site for everyone and anyone.  Ive been purty tight lipped ever since.

Wow!

 

However, we live in alternate Universes. I was out on Tuesday...18kms of hiking not seeing a soul. Came across a teepee circle that was likely a couple centuries old and thought...'Darn, this place is becoming too busy'.

I'm a generalist and restless soul full of wanderlust, so I tend to stay on the move, chasing variety, untapped/underutilized sites, and solitude in nature to keep me grounded.  The common theme of my favorite sites is that they lack footprints, save for perhaps the cloven variety.

For sentimental reasons, Casperson Beach south of Venice, Florida. Just a really pretty, undeveloped beach. Never found anything really spectacular, but I could combine spearfishing and fossil hunting in one trip!

Although Arkona and Penn Dixie have both been very kind to me, for nostalgic and sentimental reasons I choose my old hometown of Ottawa. It isn't what it used to be, but there are a few spots that seem relatively unchanged since my childhood. Splitting one of those black shales immediately takes me back 30 years. :)

Spinosaurus

The Maasvlakte 2, because its a place that is in my country, and you can find all sorts of things, like bone of mammoths and maybe some arrow heads!

Any place where I can find something I have not found before. Because I have not been there, and I enjoy going where I have never been before.

Nostalgia site would be -- Sandia mountains in New Mexico. (Where it all started for Me.)

Love Charmouth,we were stood looking over Durdle Door one time and a Spitfire did a victory roll over the sea,just when I didn't have a camera and mobiles were just phones like bricks!
