Site Recording in Northwest Utah

August 12, 2013 | Ramblings | by Jamie Stott

I can safely say LONG TIME NO SEE! Just want to apologize for being absent for most of the summer. My schedule went absolutely crazy and I was in and out of the field and when I was home I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to catch up […]

Hi all! I’m going to do something a bit different and deviate away from my normal short story Friday. I love writing my crazy tales but today I’m just not feeling it (and for those of you who are writers you totally know its useless to try and write when you don’t have the ‘writing-mojo’). […]

Okay. I’m deviating a bit from Short Story Friday. Mostly because well…..it’s Saturday, and because I wanted to do something a bit different. As many of you know I have been working in the field for the past week. We were in the Uintah Basin doing some survey for an oil and gas project. Aside from […]

The Great Hunt Panel

April 12, 2013 | Prehistoric | by Jamie Stott

Onah had been born deformed. The bones in his right leg were smaller than normal and didn’t develop the way they ought to have.
