Crawfordsville

Does anyone here have any experience with Crawfordsville, IN? I am making a XC trip in a few weeks, and I might be able to reach that general area. I wouldn't mind finding a couple of nice crinoids. I know nothing about the area. Any info would be greatly appreciated. (Accessibility of sites, best sites, etc.)

 

Thanks in advance!

Sugar Creek would be the area. Hope you can pull some slabs in a boat from the creek bed, because finding a landowner to allow you on terra firma will be hard, and they watch for poachers. Is CrinoidQueen still a FF member. She would be your best source for info.

It seems CrinoidQueen last visited the FF on 12/12/2014. I can't find her business card. Sorry.

If you make it as far "west" as Iowa or Minnesota, let me know. I owe you a "guided" hunt!

I forgot that I knew someone with a lease there, but it's tapped out until a new excavation takes place, so I'm out for Crawfordsville. Thank you all for your advice! Instead I'm going to layover in Casey, IL... home of a really really big pencil. (Among many other really really big things.)

I don’t know how long you’ll be in town, but Mazon creek is only about 2

hrs from Casey.  If that’s something you’d consider feel free to send me a PM. I can lead you to nodules, if you’re up for an adventure. Lol

The collection  of "big things" in Casey, Il. is actually kind of interesting.  Makes for a nice side stop when headed across that part of the state.  There are no big fossils, but plenty of other large items!
