Out of the office...

I may not be able to write much for the next couple of weeks, because I'm going out of town for work. The back half of the trip mostly involves museum visits, but the first half is going to be a first-of-its-kind event for us, a PaleoBlitz at Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Oklahoma. What exactly is a PaleoBlitz? Well, it's something like a BioBlitz, only the subjects of interest are long past expired. How is it going to work? That, my friend, we're about to find out. It's Paleozoic marine invertebrates down there, though, and some of the rocks are about the same age as our own Platteville and Decorah, so at least there should be some familiar "faces". If you're going to be in south-central Oklahoma on Saturday the 21st, or are just interested in the concept, here's the public write-up and a more technical write-up about the festivities. See you later!
