  • MOTM for March 2019 Clovisoid

    After a couple of months hiatus from our MOTM recognition, we return with a well deserving and much overdue honoree. Joshua has provided us with much valuable and interesting information. It’s time to thank him for it. Please give it up to Clovisoid as our newest MOTM!

    My name is Joshua Ream and like many other MOTM I am really happy to be a part of this awesome community. In a busy day that is occasionally includes some boring stuff, having arrowheads.com only a few clicks away becomes a welcome break! I have been collecting rocks all of my life, my mother says I used to bring pebbles in the house when I was a toddler. Both of my grandfathers had small collections found on the farm, my father didn't collect but enjoyed finding them with me, so I was very lucky as a kid to get the chance to hunt and dig in a lot of places. I found my first arrowhead when I was 5 or 6 and I guess I haven't stopped looking since then. Neither of my kids have the bug, but they have both found a pretty decent assortment of items, so there is still hope.

    I am from a small town in Northeastern Indiana, but I currently live and work in Hong Kong with my wife and two teenagers. We've lived in Venezuela, Italy, a couple places in the US, and now Hong Kong. I manage the Asia Pacific region for a large restaurant franchise, so I am frequently traveling. The blessing of my job is that my wife and kids get to experience some of the cooler travel destinations with me.

    Here is a picture from a couple of weeks back in India, the wife didn't think a cobra selfie was as cool as I did. The other picture is from a couple of years back at the Paleoamerican Odyssey convention with a couple of well known archaeologists checking out my Clovisoid points. I call them Clovisoid because they are Clovis-like fluted points from Venezuela. Unfortunately my rocks are packed up in storage for the next several years, but I still get hunt a bit when the family goes back for the summer.

            Hey Joshua, I will say, "Your wife is very wise." I realize it's not as dangerous as it looks but you can have the cobra. You have an outstanding ancient artifacts collection and I always enjoy seeing them. Congrats MOTM.

                          It was about time you got chosen.
                          As to your choice of selfie props though.

                                Tam, yep the Star Ferry is still plying the waters, and there is still one massive floating boat restaurant. Not sure how long ago you were over here but there used to be a bunch. They have small ones in some of the smaller islands. Live seafood is certainly about as fresh as you can get.

                                I live on Hong Kong Island near Causeway Bay, but we do go over to Kowloon pretty regularly to wonder around.
