I have just gotten back from the 7th annual Fossil Preparation Symposium, held this year at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Ut. I had a great time, meeting many new folks actually involved in finding, preparing and curating fossils at various institutions across North America (and a few in Europe, too).
Since I don't have much time, I will limit this posting to actually posting a copy of my presentation to that group which covers the finding, recovering and to-data preparation of Bernie (and friends). The actual presentation is hosted on Google Docs, open to the public. Please do not abuse and please respect author's rights by proper attribution.
