Greetings from “Big Ditch”! That is what the name of my home town means in Spanish! I live on California’s Central Coast in beautiful San Luis Obispo County. I enjoy movies (more so, it seems, than a lot of people i run into), love natural history, am the proud owner of
5 6 tattoos, and am a nut for ancient warriors.
I love paleontology, the study of fossils and ancient life, and have ever since i laid eyes on that stuffed woolly mammoth in British Columbia. While dinosaurs hold my interest, it is prehistoric mammals whom i love most. The title of my blog is misleading: I’m am not officially a paleontologist. I am currently clawing my way through community college in the hopes of transferring to a real college to get my degree. But i have spent loads of time going to museums, have spent 55 hours prepping a mammoth skeleton, and have even found a fossil or two.
While i will post on fossils, archaeology, Central Coast life, and occasionally movies, i created this blog to chronicle my pursuit of a rather ambitious dream of mine. But you can read all about that on the “Grand Vision” page. I will do profiles of the beasties who once lived here, but don’t expect anything too in depth (there are people who can do that much better than I). I will also talk about local geology, things here on the Central Coast (the little things that have their own charm), fossils localities, and sometimes just go on a mindless rant.
So with that said, I hope you enjoy my little corner of the infinite interwebs!
