What I liked

I love Tom and crew! The business is truly a family and they care about everyone that is in their lives. They were able to teach me more in a few weeks than I have learned in years of self teaching . They helped me to follow my passions and see that i could go anywhere in this world with hard-work and the determination to succeed. This summer we found as a crew working in shifts found the most complete 52 million year old ancient fossilized crocodile from the Green River Formation that has ever been found and it was the single coolest thing I have ever been a part of. I thank Tom Lindgren, Eunja, Makoto, Christine and family for everything they have done for me, they are THE BEST!

What I wish was different

I wish summers were longer and I could spend more nights on the mountain seeing the stars and talking about what we hope to find while digging the next day and with sore everything newly recharged with the excitement tomorrows promise. I miss that and hope and wish to find a version of my own one day.

Advice

Hard work pays off! Every second you aren't finding something amazing is another second you could be finding something amazing, because every thing amazing we are looking for is already there it just has to be found.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a working radar system to find bone density difference and locate fossils easier.

Put in 100% and safety is more important than money always.
