    What backpack do you use?

    I'd highly recommend a chest pack from Hill People Gear. You wear it under your backpack (or daypack) and it holds your firearm and other items you want to access. You can drawn quickly from it and it does not interfere with your backpack's hipbelt. Also, you can use two straps they provide to dock it to your backpack so the chest pack is essentially weightless. I never go in the woods without my chest pack and, being a bit of a gear junkie, can say without question that it is the best piece of outdoor gear, or clothing, of any type that I've ever owned in my life.

    "Kimberlite Pipe" is the term. Good call on the diamond possibility. A gold dredge / high banker might be fun. Depends on the location and the governing body that controls the land. Permits would be in order. Check with the Bureau of Land Management. Prospecting, i.e. searching / sampling might be illegal. Be careful. Doesn't matter where you go, someone will see you put a shovel into the ground. Kimberlite Pipes are all over the world. Big site in Canada, eh. Oregon is weird. It is like the whole state was sprinkled with minerals when Mazama blew up.

    Archaeological Methodology

    Archaeological methodology has potential but very few of us have proper training. How about botany? For thousands of years, Chinese miners searched for gold by associating certain plants that thrive in areas of high copper abundance ( Copper always has gold. Always. Find copper and you have gold ).The prospecting was called 'geo-botanical prospecting' or something similar. They used the method in China and America. Botanical associations of decomposing humans / animals is being researched as a forensic method to find bodies. One of those 'body farms' in the Southeast is doing the re

    Archaeological Methodology

    The geology of Washington State is 'chaos'. Entire mountains have been upheaved in the distant past. The Mt. Baker area has Jurassic era rock and fossils of palm fronds are not rare ( no amber ). There is 'Hannegan Pass' area by Mt. Baker. Millions of years ago, the area experienced a 'double caldera trap door collapse'. The collapses were separated by millions of years but the scale and magnitude are shocking. Further south in eastern Washington, one can find fossils just off of the Old Blewett Pass highway. The acidic soils eat up organic materials very quickly. Water events have shap

    Archaeological Methodology

    I actually had some hands on training by a local Archiologist/Paleontologist over the last two years and I got to clean the remains of a T-Rex from the Hell Creek Formation. It was pretty wild, and yes I kept a fragment from the first bone I exposed to the sunlight! That said, much of what we call "historic" sasquatch areas really havent changed much in the last 12,500-15,000 years. Those areas were then, and are still today, largely desidious. Desiduious forest is notoriously bad for preservation, not only due to scavengers but also the acidic nature of the forest floor breaking down mineral

    Yes, but no, it’s much much older. Here is the theory.

    Northwind You have a good sick sense of humor . Oops, did I say sick sense of humor. No, I meant a good sense of humor. I know that you two make a good pair of team mates out in the field that look out for each other. I really look forward to seeing what you two find out in the field. Especially after there being fires . It will be interesting to see how these creatures reacted to the fires in your area. Amen to that !

    Since he brought up how this extra haplotype was prevalent in areas like nova scotia and ontario, both kinda near newfoundland where people like leif erikson landed, maybe the natives encountered these middle age era europeans and some "intermingling" occured, not sure if that was covered or proposed in the video but i would see it as the most viable explanation.

    Honestly, I don't care. I have nothing more to lose, and I know where I am going.

    Careful there, pahdnah. Her bright side may be better than your bright side. That is to say, I doubt she'd see it as doing you the favor of not having to go to work

    I grew up in L.A. I have my share of evil streak...I just keep it for when I really need it. But if she did shoot me, at least I wouldn't have to go to work anymore. See, a bright side in everything.

    Found these in my back yard a few years ago. Amazing how closely the bottom one resembles the one on top of the UK. You can see that the tip is broken off but the haft is still in place.

    Northwind I would be careful with her if she is carrying. You might not come back with her on a hike with those bad jokes. Just kidding , But now you know how us Detroiters think. We Evilon those bad jokes.

    I've always liked this video and reasoning. Fascinating topic! @Incorrigible1, I hope you don't mind the addition. I'm looking forward to watching your video, but I've got to get to work now!

    Yep, we've been out a fair bit. But just not finding much. Couple that with snow blockages and many gates that are locked still because of the fires we had. Saturday morning we wanted to get to a spot via a "back door" but the gate was locked. So we had to drive many miles around and get to it that way. Then we encountered a locked gate when leaving from a different direction and had to drive 25 miles back. Danged gates sometimes seem to have no rhyme or reason. Really frustrating on land that I own (public). Still though, the day was amazingly

    Thanks, @ShadowBorn and @VAfooter!

    We've been out several times, but been stymied by snow or closed roads etc. Looks like we should have some good stuff coming up, though. We are working up to an overnight at a hike-in lake and another hike to an area that's been closed to the public for years. Hope it's interesting! Plus, we want to hit our regular research spots, too. So much to do, so little time!

    Perhaps you may be interested in a dedicated thread in a field forum or somewhere here, if you don't mind laying out some more context. I assume by a season you're documenting activity in spring or fall, judging from what I vaguely remember from your past site/posts, such as hunters noting oddness, maybe. I'm sure many would find it of interest. Cheers and have fun this year!

    I cannot speak to their backpack stuff, but I have used their belt holsters (and belts) for over five years now and they are top quality. Good products in my opinion.

    I had a vague idea that they were in the nightshade family...which tomatoes are too, of course...and that might have sent me down a path of confusion about them. I suppose the little lantern shroud falls off of them late in the season. Thanks for the clarification. You see these a lot in fields that have been cut over or hayed.

    Concealed Carry Holsters | Concealment Holsters | Alien Gear Holsters has some good stuff for carrying your pistol on your back pack. So you might want to check them out.
