Just because we can, Cindy and I packed up our Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited on a random Thursday morning and headed out to explore the infinitely vast, Northern Nevada desert. On this particular expedition, we decided to go looking for a secret destination that we'd heard about years ago and think we may have finally found. Along the way, we came across other unexpected things as well but of course, they're what make an adventure like this, so much fun. I know this episode of the JL JOURNAL is a bit of a departure from what a lot of you are used to seeing but in reality, it is what we love to do most and we hope you enjoy it just the same.

Great video! Really cool you were able to find that place, hunting for fossils seems like a great day.

Nice detective work! 🍻

Did you take any home or is this land you have to leave everything behind?

very cool!

There are several areas along the Utah Nevada border that have that type of rock and various fossils.

When my daughter was younger we'd go fossil hunting. I still have various fossils that she worked hard to break open and just had to come home with us :thumb:

gyro with mayo...hmmm.....nahhhh

If you had eaten it, I bet you wouldn't have been fossil hunting for very long :icon_crazy:

This is all BLM land and collecting is totally legal. If anything, there are people who come out to this place with heavy equipment to dig for fossils and that kinda pisses me off.

There are lots of fossil sites out in this area but the best ones are kept secret. :yup:

Now that's over the top. It's awesome that the BLM allows collecting, but that people would take advantage and risk ruining it for the rest of us is just bullshit. 😡

Yup, total bullshit. When we were there, you could could see fresh tracks left behind from a backhoe. People go into a place like this to mine the fossils and then sell them. It's shit like this that got everyone clamming up about the location.

Cool video as usual! LOL, the mayo scene was hilarious. Here in the Pittsburgh we put goddam french fries on or in EVERYTHING. Yes, even IN our gyros.
Here's a menu from a Gyro joint by my office. First time I ordered from there I was spitting it out because I missed it on the menu and, well, what the hell is up with
french fries in a Gyro!? :thinking: They hid them in the bottom of the pita so I didn't even see them. Too weird.

I am pretty sure you were being tested by Satan with the mayo Gyros. Mayo contamination of food items should always be rejected.

It's nice that collecting is legal, but you have to follow the rules. Its surface collecting with up to a certain depth of excavating (sorry can't remember the legal depth) with hand tools. You are allowed to collect up to what could fit into an average cars trunk (Yes that is the verbiage..haha) per day. The use of mechanized equipment is prohibited unless proper mining claim permits are issued and a claim is staked. At which point you must show use and improvements to your claim annually and pay the annual permit fee in order to maintain it.


Now I'm on a mission to scour google Earth and seek out the location. Damn desert out there looks all the same though..haha. Very cool for sharing. I love going out and exploring. Lisa and I did that a couple weekends ago in Stoddard Valley on our way to the Slash-X. Finally made my way to RZ spring then showed her Stoddard's Well on our way home. 54 Miles total 46 of them all on dirt.

That's pretty much what I've read from the BLM and why I was pretty pissed to see that a backhoe had come into this area and was literally trenching the site. Being that the area is so remote, I don't know how anyone could stop them.

Glad to hear you got to spend so much time exploring your backyard. The Mojave is one of my favorite places.

Thank you, we really do appreciate it. Cindy loves what she does and is always looking for ways to doing things better. The drone is something we've been meaning to incorporate for years but it's only been recently that we've had one small enough to carry with us.

Yeah its stuff like that, that ruins it for everyone. Unfortunately most public lands are so expansive that catching someone is nearly impossible. The only way they caught the guys who cut the petroglyphs out of the rocks outside of Bishop was because they wanted them for yard decor and proudly displayed them.

Edit: Correction, they received an anonymous tip (that was believed to be the thieves) which led authorities to them. It was believed they were taken to be displayed.

I remember when that happened. If I recall, there was a panel that was stolen from the Black Mountains as well about the same time. People suck!

Totally dug this short vid...I have a couple comments..

1. Finding fossils brings me back to my youth...something I thoroughly enjoyed before I was a teenager.

2. The acoustic slide guitar music was cool...nothing like a little blues groove to jam to.

3. Make your own tzatziki...it's easy...Greek yogurt, peeled and seeded cukes, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt & pepper...throw it into the blender (dill optional)...

If you ever find anything that you canít identify, you could ask my Brother In Law as he is the Fossil Collection Manager at the Chicago Field Museum. His job has him in the field often, doing exactly what you have done.

Just let me know and I will pm you his contact info.
