New Member In Brownwood

I have loved fossils as long as I can remember, but I've never been able to meet up with others that share this interest. I'm currently living in a place known for its fossil finds, and I'd love to take advantage of that while I'm here!

I live on the edge of Lake Brownwood. I moved here about a year ago while pregnant, and told myself I'd get to go fossil hunting as soon after my little one got here as possible. Now that my husband and I are in the swing of parenting, I want to get out and explore.

Fossil hunting goals:

Find (at least) one HUGE ammonite. I've seen people use these as yard decorations and it always blew my mind as a child.

Find a very detailed fist-sized ammonite for desk display.

Find an intact trilobite. (an arching one would be amazing!)

Learn to 'extract' fossils from a matrix without damaging them.

Find a plant (fern?) fossil.

Surely unrealistic, but maybe someday:

Find a frog fossil.

Find a tiny dinosaur fossil.

Looking forward to getting to know you guys and see your finds!

Welcome to The Fossil Forum from Missouri! :) Always good to have a plan and it sounds like you got one lined up! :) Glad you joined the forum so you can show those off as you check them off of your list! Maybe you could start a thread called "Imbers Brownwood Bucket List!" and post 'em up as you find 'em!

You ought to see the ammo's the farmers are just plowing up out of the fields over there where Ludwigia lives!

Good luck hunting and see 'ya round on the forum! ;)
