Fossil hunting is serious business.
Let me explain.
The people from the retirement community greeted us with compliments or grumpy snorts as we poked along in the field. The army was practicing surveillance (something about weather and bugs... the leader person lost me a bit in her explanation), so it was an interesting mix of people. I felt very safe and a little confused.
Fossil hunting was hard work! We needed food! I always need food after a long morning of fossil hunting... or teaching... or shopping... or napping.
