Rocks…

We’re staying at an LDMA (lost duchman’s mining association) property in Athen’s Michigan.  Chase and I were out digging in his claimed “canyon” when we came across an odd looking rock.  Upon further examination, this isn’t a rock, after all.  It’s a fossil of some sort.  We all have our theories as to what this once was, Marcus thinks it look like a nut, I think it looks like a butterfly chrysalis, and Chase thinks it looks like a leaf print.  Pretty neat to find something so old and mysterious.  We’re headed back over to explore our paleontologist sides once more.  I’ll try to get some pictures of our finds and get all of your ideas of what they might have once been.

We plan to pack up later on this evening (it’s too beautiful out right now to waste the day driving) and make our way towards Minnsota.  It’s a good 9.5 hours from here, so we’ll break it up into 2 days.  Drive late tonight, park at a Walmart for free, and finish up tomorrow.  Once in Minneapolis, we hope to meet with NECI alumni, do a demo or two, and stage at a few restaurants.
