  1. Okay gang....let's have some fun....a contest of sorts... As an experiment, I'm going to have you folks here at the TFF choose the location my fossil hunting/camping excursion for May 2021... There are a few minimum requirements, however: Will take place over the Last Weekend in May, 2021 so I have up to 5 days available. Keep in mind, I allow a day to get there and a day to get back) Location must be no more than a ten hour drive from Omaha, Nebraska. (You can use Google maps or the like to figure drive time from Omaha) Primitive/Disbursed/Car camping mu
  2. Now that my boys are getting older and enjoying hunting for sharks teeth a little bit more frequently, I would like to tie it in with an over night camping trip. We have been to Calvert Cliffs and Brownies Beach and they really enjoyed themselves. We are willing to park and hike a few miles to a location. It does not have to be a pull up, park and camp (I'd actually prefer it not be that).

    High Desert Hiatus

    Often on The Fossil Forum you strike up an online friendship based on common interest, then build on it over time through field experiences enjoyed vicariously online, but it is a rare treat to finally cement that friendship in person through a collaborative field problem. After a couple years of threatening to do so, I finally saw a break in the clouds that afforded me the opportunity to burn rubber westward and follow in the footsteps of the Pied Piper of the Puerco, the Chancellor of the Cretaceous, our own PFooley. As a generalist filled with wanderlust, it is hard for me to

    Peace River Camping?

    Hello All, I would like to take a group of families camping somewhere along the Peace River in Florida to hunt fossils. Does anyone have a suggestion for a campground, or even just a great spot for finding fossils? We don't necessarily need to camp. Thank you for any suggestions!
  5. Hello everyone!! I have picked a couple of locations around Lake Texoma on the boarder of Texas and Oaklahoma. Dose anyone have any good advice for the area? This will be our first trip their and everything I’ve read and researched on the area is roughly 3-4 years old. So I’m looking for some current info. Thanks so much for any help you can give us.
  6. We finally got a chance to make it to Penn Dixie this year. Met up with Jay and had a good time. I made a short video of some of our adventures. I'll be posting a bit more fossil pictures. The brother found several roller trilobites out of the matrix in full condition.
  7. For those of you who have dreamed about Middle and Upper Cambrian trilobites in western Utah, this is the publication that will open the door to exploring. The Utah Geological and Mineralogical Survey has printed many well done booklets and books on Millard County, Utah. The intent was to draw in Petroleum Geologists to explore the general areas, but also provide a wealth of information to those interested in Paleontology and Cambrian Stratigraphy. To the west side you can even be directed to Triassic Ammonites, with Pennsylvanian and later outcrops also in the vicinity. The camping possib
  8. After all of my Nebraska Badland posts, you would think I am a paid promoter for Sioux County and Dawes County, Nebraska. I am not. This area of the panhandle of Nebraska and Southwest South Dakota probably made the biggest impression on me as a teenager, Geology University Student and a parent of two daughters. THIS vacation will make a lasting impression on everyone who enjoys natural history and the Sioux Indian Wars of the 1870's. There is biking, horse back riding, camping, Fort Robinson Playhouse, a Rodeo in Crawford and Harrison, Nebraska, Scottsbluff and the Oregon Trail history, a

    These are the most unusual chalcedony forms to find in the World. Here is one laid upon some pine needles. Some spots will have so many, you will have to pick only the most interesting ones! Have a collecting bag around your neck to put them into it. Have a walking stick to hike with, do some prodding in thick pine needles. We have seen some rattle snakes, actually one, but it was nearly five feet long a Basalt ridge. Just be aware. Wonderful camping. Well maintained roads. Gasoline, groceries and water to be found in Reserve. On a map draw a fifty mile circle and you are just beginn

    From the album: Adventure is an individual thought!

    This is a typical flat to find loose chalcedony. There are areas of Basalt and Rhyolite that you will find the sources of all of the agate and chalcedony. Once you understand lava flows from the Oligocene volcanics... you are on your way to finding the most unusual chalcedony in the world. Step into a Forest Service Office, get the large scale Forest map(s) you need, inquire as to where a good area to begin looking might be... and you are on your way. Make sure you mark where you camped... so you can find it next time and finish looking over the beautiful hillsides.

    From the album: Adventure is an individual thought!

    The area around Reserve, New Mexico has unlimited camping and hiking opportunities. It is very remote and so rugged, that you should mark your campsite with a GPS so you can find it again. Also when you drive to prospect canyons for agate, opal and chalcedony... mark where you parked your vehicle. You CAN easily get lost here. But, there is so much to hunt that a week is not even enough time to begin to know the area. NO camp fires please. Lots of Elk and Deer, some bear. Bring WATER. Bring FOOD. Bring a FLASHLIGHT. You will need it... or travel with us and stretch out and make the b

    Have your dogs pack the water into the back country and pack the finds back to camp. There are so many areas to find agate and opal that you just find a nice camping spot and begin to prospect by walking... and walking... and walking. Even "Apache Tears" can be found north of Snow Lake. Bring a bag to carry them. These are the size of a dime to quarter. The dry creek beds and hillsides are a good place to start... north of Snow Lake are some nice camping spots and the hills further north have the Apache Tears washing out in the dirt roads!

    Great spots are hidden from tourists in small National Forest lands. I am metal detecting a local party camp site with the Grand Tetons behind me. Found lots of loose change. Crazy kids must have holes in their pockets. No fossils or rock to find, but a great inexpensive way to visit the Tetons and Jackson, Wyoming... on the way to Yellowstone country to the north.

    From the album: Adventure is an individual thought!

    Sometimes before you go into civilized towns... you have to clean up after a long week of prospecting. Dogs... included. This area is in Irish Canyon, to the north of the entrance of another Dinosaur National Monument access. Rugged, rough and wide open for camping and hiking.
  15. Hi - first post! A friend and I are taking our three kids (ages 6-8) to the Peace River this weekend. Our plan is to screen for fossils all afternoon Saturday, camp in tents at Brownville Park Saturday night, and maybe do a little more screening on Sunday if everyone is up for it. I hope the water won't be too cold for the kids to last for at least a few hours. A year ago my son and I camped at Pioneer Park and did well with small shark teeth and many other fossils in the Wauchula, Zolfo, and Gardner areas. I've never stayed at Brownville, but based on my reading it might be more fun than s
