Just wanted to say hello

I just joined this list because I have long had a love 
for and enjoyment of anything having to do with 
dinosaurs and paleontology. If I'd had my head on 
straight as a kid, I would have gone into it -- but I 
didn't and now it's way too late. However, I can still 
enjoy learning.

I won't be posting much here because I hate sounding 
stupid -- but I will be lurking and enjoying your 
posts and learning more about our favorite critters.

Okay, so I am about to sound stupid. Please forgive 
me. How does one go about getting a job on a dig? I 
don't mean anything as advanced as finding and digging 
up fossils -- but surely there's some use to which a 
dino lover with a little brains can be put like 
hauling dirt away from the dig, cleaning tools, 
getting coffee -- whatever.

I do know a little about computers and I am a writer. 
Useful on a dig or no?

I am desperate to actually be there (anywhere!) when a 
discovery is made or even if there are just nice 
possibilities and no fossils yet. I want to do that 
someday before I die. Hopefully, that won't be any 
time soon, but you know what I mean.

Any place for volunteers? Oh, my husband would want to 
go, too.
