2009 Dinosaur Field School

Well, the Field School is looking pretty packed for this summer, with 18 people braving the desert heat and sun over the course of 2 weeks. The crew from Cincinnati will be headed out the last week of June, hopefully arriving for the annual cookout of Bighorn Basin geologists, paleontologists and researchers in Powell, Wyoming.

Dr. Storrs is still assembling his team since a few of us have had to take a break this summer. Mac and Sara, our long-time field crew members are having to attend to their studies this summer, though they'll still be doing a lot of traveling (Mac in the Western U.S. and Sara to Mongolia, among other places.) I, too, will be unable to make the trek with a 10-week-old son at home...but I'll be there in spirit. Mike Papp has volunteered for another year of duty, and I'm sure he'll be just fine with the rest of the crew.

I'm not sure how regularly the blog can be updated this summer, but we'll try to make it exciting when we do!
