Lafarge in April

The day started off crappy for me but not for my wife.  As we were about the 3rd or 4th people in I headed to the hills since they have had some good weathering and she stayed towards the bottom of them.  It only took about 10 minutes into the hunt before I here her screaming that she found a huge tooth.  It took me a couple of minutes to get down to her to see that she found a 3+ inch beautiful Auriculatus.  She said all she saw was the root in the ground and it popped out like it was in a cast.  Her was gravy mode after that but I still had some work to do.  About an hour went by and I here her say she found another one.  This time I was close enough to tell her to leave it so I could get the ground shot.  Then just as we started to walk again I spotted this beat up Archaeocete in some matrix and then whoops almost put my bag down on a root of an Auriculatus.  To bad it ended up have some tip damage but  I wasn’t complaining.  Then a few hours went by and we were heading all the way around the pit so I could clime the hills to search.  All of a sudden I here my wife yell "Got another Ric!!!!”  Man at this point I almost gave up, she was kicking my but.  I did manage to find a nice multi colored Auriculatus on the far hill that I wanted to hit.  Then on the way back I stumbled on what I really wanted to find, an Archaeocete tooth.  It was in three pieces but who cares...I finally got one from Lafarge.  That pretty much topped off the day.  Until next time.....Good Hunting!!!!!!!

Wow what a rack of momentous proportions! That ric of your wife's is amazing - one of the best I've seen from there in a long time. I can't believe her good fortune. Does she save lives on a daily basis? The universe must owe her big time! Content Quality : 7 of 10
A great report! I wish I had been there to witness the unearthing of so many rics.
