Re: Field Trip--Fossils In The Tin Mountain Limestone

I'm shy leave me be! :D I'm also about three years behind on TRs including this past December's voyage. I started to pay attention where you are based now.

I'm going to be in the park on 19 and 20… I sure hope they can make up their minds before or after then.

I'm surprised noone has anything to say about the marijuana growing facility !? :razz: :lol: I predict it will make more money for the tribe, than the Indian Tacos they sell at the village next to FC. ;-) It would be unfair and politically incorrect to comment on the herb until one has tried such p...
