  • MOTM for August 2022. PaleoSnow

    It is always enjoyable to me, to be able to help recognize a member on our site that does their part to make this a place to learn and have fun seeing all the artifacts that are being found. There are endless opportunities here and Chad is our newest member to honor. He helps keep our site alive. Please say hello to PaleoSnow!

    Hello to all!
    First and Foremost….WOW! I feel honored and i am very grateful to have been chosen as MOTM!

    My name is Chad. Born and raised in the piney woods of Cass County, North East Texas mainly roaming the woods and wilderness like some sort of a wildman. I currently reside in South West Arkansas right in the heart of Caddo country. Im just a rock kicking, log flipping, flint finding, hard working southern man with a love and passion for Native American artifacts that i thank my late Grandfather for teaching me about, introducing me to and sparking my interest in what has shaped and become a part of my every day life. Ive spent the past 30 yrs searching for and collecting Native American artifacts. Im very passionate and serious about the hobby and spend most all my free time in search of NA artifacts. I also collect anything NA themed or related including old comics, cards, coins, documents, books, spoons, signs, advertisements, and so much more. I enjoy exploring new and potential places, creek walking, kayaking, searching the rivers and bluffs nearby and just talking and visiting with the local old timers who are a wealth of knowledge and history on the area. When im not doing those things i enjoy bass fishing, bow fishing, fossil hunting, bear hunting, camping and UTV rides in the mountains. As long as im outdoors and in the wilderness im a happy man. When i am indoors i like to use that time to research, read, and enjoy checking up with you guys on the forum here. Im so grateful to be a member on here and this has become a very valuable tool for me as well as just having liked minded people with similar interest to talk to. Thanks to every single member here, i have been treated with nothing but respect, honesty, kindness and been given so much great information and different ideas and views that have helped me in areas I struggle with. Im always trying to learn as much as possible and hope i can also help some folks out along the way.

    THANKS AGAIN TO ALL. Im truly proud and honored to be chosen as MOTM

      I have to comment on that, Thank You! That is my daughter, the love of my life, my inspiration, my baby girl! Biologically, shes not. But ive been there and watched that pretty girl grow up from just 18 months old, to the beautiful intelligent young woman she is today and shes done nothing but love me and make me proud the whole way! Moving her into her college dorm in 2 weeks actually. A very exciting day but also kind of sad. They just grow up to fast. But that is one reason i chose that picture, she is a BIG part of my life. She used to come home from day care with pockets full of rocks and we would sit down and look at and talk about all of our “harrow-heads”, she called them. Nowadays, if theres bugs, spiders, snakes, gators, wasps…….shes out! But im 100% sure that she will have a really nice collection one day and not have to work as hard for it like somebody did!

      Thank you much Greg. Im not sure if I deserve it or not, but i gladly accept. Being MOTM kind of inspires me to learn more, and take in all i can from the seniors on here. That way i can pay it forward to new and upcoming members who need help and advice on here. Im fairly knowledgeable in some areas but struggle in a few others. I wish i had this tool back 25-30 years ago! You guys are awesome!

      Thats cool Gar. We may have already or may someday cross paths! If we ever do, im sure there would be plenty of stories and such to share.

      Thanks for all your help, thoughts and advice youve given me. You are very knowledgeable on artifacts and being from the same region is a tremendous help.
