FAQ

WHERE WILL WE GO?

The excavation site is in Eastern Wyoming in a region called the Lance Formation, roughly 200 miles north of Cheyenne, the state capitol. The nearest airport is Rapid City, SD.

WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE?

Some say, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes.” It can change quickly, but expect it to be hot, with daily temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s. Night lows in the 50’s. Rain is rare, but can be fierce. Our schedule adapts, with morning and afternoon work and mid-day siestas.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

We provide on-site transportation and excavation equipment. Here’s a short gear list:

  • Sunscreen, sunglasses, canteen

  • Sleeping bag and tent 

  • Your own toiletries

HOW ABOUT MEALS AND LODGING?

We’ll provide all meals. You’ll have your own tent and sleeping bag, but we’ll have scheduled meals as a team. We’ll have snacks available all day, but you may want to bring your own stash of favorite snacks to share.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The one-week expedition is $850 per adult and $650 for children (scholarships available). This includes meals and transportation while in the field, and ranch camp fees.
