(Shared)Fun How-To by Jeremy

MARCH 2018 by Jeremy First things first, buy the hat. You need an adventure hat. It’s non-negotiable. As soon as you put it on, you’re basically Indiana Jones already.

November 2017 by CYNTHIA Thanks to Toby and Shelley for live-streaming the book-signing event and for posting their great photos. Forrest asked me to write a few words and post a few pictures. Here is a written account of what I remember with a few of my photos (and some texted to me)…

Thanks, Cynthia. Fun to see familiar faces even though I couldn’t be there.

What begin as a sunny day on the lake with friends searching for a meteorite, quickly turned into a full on fossil frenzy for Jon Ganshorn and his six-year-old daughter Lily. Lily quickly lost interest in the meteorite hunt and decided her time was better spent getting her dad to break apart some of the […]
