Hello! Later this year I'm planning on moving from Florida back to New England. I was hoping to make the voyage into an interesting road trip... I've heard of several places in the Eastern half of the US where you can dig your own fossils. I know that there are some places in Georgia and the Carolinas that are good to find Megalodon teeth, and some places in the northern US that are good for finding trilobites... I'm up for anything interesting and was looking for suggestions on exact places, tour companies, people, anything that you can offer that might extend my collection on the trip!

Chatsworth GA has some really nice creepy crawlers from the Cambrian! :trilo:

Central New York has several locations for Devonian fossils including Trilobites. If you are interested let me know by pm. Depending on the dates I may be available to hunt with you.

Thank you! I would love to do that, I don't have specific dates nailed down but it will probably be July or August!

When it gets closer to that time contact me and we can try to work something out. I have fossilhunted with other members of this forum in the past and am always open to meeting up with others.

A stop at Big Brook in New Jersey might be worth your while.  If you do a search for Big Brook and fossils you'll find plenty of information. Search here on the forum too. It's an easy place to get to, and a pleasant place to collect in July or August.

Welcome back to New England!
