Hello From Pa

Hello to The Fossil Forum!

I never introduced myself prior to making a few posts so I thought I would do so now.

I did my undergraduate degree in geology and paleontology and eventually branched off into paleoclimatology in graduate school, leaving the outcrops behind.

Now that academia is behind me, I finally get a chance to get back into the geological swing of things as a hobby and look forward to sharing some of the specimens I collected over the years as well as finding new ones.

So, hello to all, and may all your shales, sandstones, concretions and sediments be always plentiful!

Paleoclimatology? Cool!

Welcome to the Fossil Forum from the Hudson Valley, NY. Done any collecting in the early Cambrian around Lancaster? I'm anxious to see what you've found. Best of luck finding more.

Hello to all and thanks for all of the welcomes!

Welcome to the Fossil Forum from the Hudson Valley, NY. Done any collecting in the early Cambrian around Lancaster? I'm anxious to see what you've found. Best of luck finding more.

Hey Jeff - Yes I have. I was at school in Lancaster a decade ago, before serendipity had me return a few years ago after doing grad. work in the U.K. I've collected the Kinzers in the Lancaster area and other places up along the east coast - and some field work in Montana. I then left rocks in exchange for clouds, studying paleoclimatology for 8 years.

I have some material from the Kinzers, including some material I brought back to break open later, which I have still yet to get around to doing. Sadly, I may have the last piece of the Fruitville Quarry (a 10-15 pound chunk that had a nice trilobite on one side). I was a little jaded in undergrad and expected all fossils to be pristine - and the Kinzers is pretty hard stuff!

Welcome from San Antonio :)

Why does the sun come up? Or are the stars just pinholes in the curtain of night? Who knows!!
