The place where the rockhound is always welcome!

Fossil information will be here.

                                                 I got a little book called

                             "211 Things A Bright Boy can Do by Tom Cutler"

                                 on page 212 is info on how to find fossils.

                                                            See below

 

                                                            Now to

                                            FIND FOSSILS

 

Should I be asked to choose between being the kind of guy who

  wanders the beach detecting bottle caps with a circular carpet

sweeper, or one of those fellows who discovers a new species of dinosaur

with a single blow of his hammer, the choice would not be a difficult

one.

 

 Equipment And Collecting

o Notebook and pen

o A magnifying lens

o Sturdy waterproof boots

o Whacking tool (see below)

o Flask of hot chocolate

o Goggles and a hard hat for serious walloping under falling cliffs

o A strong bad for the big ones

 

       Always keep a proper record in your book and label each fossil with

                                details of where it was found.

 

Thats just a small sample of the info on fossils and that's just 2 pages of info

The book is 312 pages... and yes most of the stuff in the book is silly

and of no use to anyone, but its still fun and that's a okay list of fossil

hunting (even the hot chocolate). It cost me 2 dollars at 1/2 price books in

Greenwood Indiana. On a scale of 1 to 10 , 1 being the best... maybe 6
