    Hey Jeanette @jeanette-pirlo,

    I wanted to make sure you got my receipts and to ask how I go about uploading all the photos and videos of the PD. Also were the professional photos posted anywhere? Id love one of the group for my power point presentation. If you have time in the future to look at my presentation to give me feedback I would love it. I would like to add a few slides about MyFossil if thats ok. I would love to see more fossil hunters and clubs utilize this great tool.

    Thank you for everything. Literally… EVERYTHING. You are amazing. I hope I am invited again. What an incredible experience,

    Tricia Lynn

    Hi Victor @vperez,

    I am trying to upload the photos and videos of the PD to the group but it is only allowing me to do 5 at a time. Is there a place to upload the entire collection of photos and videos?

    Also were the professional photos posted somewhere? I would love to have some of the group shots for my presentation I am giving to fossils groups this year. I’d love your opinion of the presentation once I get it assembled. I would love feedback before I show it.

    Thank you again for taking us all hunting in the creek. I went back up again and had a great time the following weekend with Bill and Megan, my former student, now friend. They loved it. Thank you!!

    Hi everyone.

    I had such a wonderful time at the PD. I cannot thank you all enough for all the things I learned, the fun I had, all the laughter and all the new friends I made and the project I am now working on that has taken on a life of its own. That week was definitely a once in a lifetime experience although I do hope we do it again. And again. And again. 🙂

    I have loads of photos I took during the PD but I am still trying to figure out how to get them on here.

    Have a great school year and if anyone needs any gravel from the Peace once the waters go down I will gladly get you some. Lets plan a fossil hunting trip (or 6) too. I have extra kayaks, lets get in the water and get to hunting!!!

    I miss you all.

    I wanted to thank everyone for such a wonderful week. I never could have imagined the amazing friends I would meet and the experiences I had. Im still in awe. Truly.

    Im putting together my “kit” and developing my materials to take on the road into classrooms and home school groups and I need some advice.

    1. I need to pack all these fossils into something i can easily take with me to different settings. A large trunk on wheels maybe? Ive been invited to speak in Illinois so something that is sturdy, shippable, lockable, etc. Inside is another question. What should each fossil be wrapped and stored in? Im headed to the container store to get ideas. If you know of online resources or have ideas id really like to hear them.

    For the paleo-experts: some of the fossils need stabilization. Some are very porous and are losing little bits during transport. How can I stabilize them? A coating like butvar? Id rather not have them shiny if they are naturally matte.

    Id like to also protect the fossils on the touch table from finger oils etc. Need ideas there too.

    Thank you everyone for everything. This was the best week!!! Im so motivated and excited about this project. And to have all of you to advise me. Thats the best part.
