im new here. please excuse typos and errors. i went blind a year ago and with treatment am getting a little sight back, and can read with 500x magnifier on plus a magnifying glass.
anyway, my grand-nephew is here in texas visiting from Alaska, hes 8, and i had my laptop open on one of the other geology threads and he saw the word fossil and he loves dinos. in a couple of days we are getting on bus to explore the grand canyon. he has drawn his own diagrams ,we don't have a printer, that yall provided. we are camping out so he will be my eyes for me. he has his field notebook still out ready to take more notes to take from what you write. hes taking this seriously. i think yall are going to make a budding geologist out of him.
ps i had to buy him a computer too so he can write his field notes up and so when he goes back home he will be lurking on this site soaking up info. thanks for keeping it simple enough an 8 yr. old could understand it well enough to want to go apply the info. again thank you very much.
m y late husband has has relatives in Scottsdale & one of the great-grandsons is going camp with us for a day or so and show us around a little, he used to camp in the canyon a lot so he will place us in a fairly safe spot since ill be depending on an 8 yr old being my eyes for about 5 days. this will be the most exciting & terrifying thing iv done since losing my sight! I cant wait!
