Tools Of The Trade

In the Field 2014

The guys are due back from the remote camp soon! So as soon as they re-acclimate I will get the low down on their trip and report back to all of you. In the meantime, before he left (and while everyone was prepping for their remote camp trip) I asked Tony to take us through “a paleontologist tools of the trade” overview and talk to us about what he takes with him in his backpack when going on field excursions.

Check it out!

A Thank You to WFAA Channel 8!

In the Field 2014

Quick recap:  you may recall that while we were in Denali for last summer’s Perot Museum in the Field 2013 that we communicated intermittently with WFAA Channel 8 via SKYPE and satellite phone, and shared some photos and videos and that, while we were gone, they used to provide some updates about our journey to their audience in DFW.  Although we had dreams to do more we felt comfortable starting there because we weren’t sure what to expect from a connectivity or technology standpoint this being only year one for me to tag along with the team to follow and document their journey. But, our dreams of doing more didn’t die!

As we planned for Perot Museum in the Field 2014, with the year one experience under our belt, we had a much better idea of what could be done.  Thanks to WFAA producer Meagan Harris our dreams for year two have come true!
