The 2012 Bone Doggle adventure was great!  Please visit our 2012 Bone Doggle tab to see how the trip went.
The Bone Doggle started as an idea in 2011 By Kris Mack and me to fulfill a lifelong dream of going out on our own adventure and with the ultimate goal of discovering Dinosaurs. We have mastered the formula of adventure, comradery, and great food and wine along the way. Over the last 2 years we (an eclectic group of 20 combined individuals with a zest for adventure)  have found countless bones, a T- Rex Tooth, and a Pelvis and Rib bone of a Hadrosaur. This year, we may have found the BIG ONE. Fingers Crossed.

STAY TUNED For Breaking News

      Yes its me,

      Of Course. Who else would be that dorky.

      Anyway, I am a big believer in using modern bone to inspire finding 65 mm year old bone.

    Hello there,
    Thanks for reaching out, I think.

    If you are sincerely interested in the efforts well then I welcome your input and will do my best to entertain. This is all quite new to me. If however, this is a gratuitous Attempt to namedrop Opera, than piss off. Ha.

    I am just a guy learning the worlds of social media and looking for bones along the way.

    best to you either way,

      James, It was really great meeting you and I am sorry for not replying sooner. You are an inspiration and I am hopeful our paths will cross again. As soon as the movie is finished I will send it to you.
      Please keep me in touch with the other projects you are working on. I had misplaced your contact info and I am grateful to have reconnected with you.

    it’s official. Your nose is bigger:)

      I only hope that someone finds your fossilized nose one day. for sure it will confuse scientists who may think they have found a new species of rhino.

    what do you get when mix – Jack Hannah, The Dos Equis Guy “most interesting man in the world” and Aristotle Onassis? You get Jamie Robinson. The most interesting man in Conshohocken!!!! Loved the movie. Can’t wait to see it on Discovery Channel.

    Wow. Had no idea that these relics were out there and could be discovered by ‘regular’ people. Very cool and can’t wait for more video. It looks like a blast.

    Great video from 2012 Bone Doggle. I looks like you guys had a rich and rewarding experience (and a shit load of fun too). Sorry I missed it-maybe 2013.

    Wow, what an adventure! Keep digging! By the way, as you mentioned Gibbons, you might enjoy a great eaasy on him by John McFee in the April 6, 1968 number of the New Yorker.

      Hey Al,
      Can you post that link to the Euell Gibbons article?

    Amazing find! What an adventure too. I love dino digging and i hope to do it all over the world. Great short film.

    Jamie- I love this!! It is so funny too…..Can I go next year? Seriously! What is about the digging and discovering that appeals to us at our very core? It is hard to explain- no? Thank you for sharing this and sign me up for 2013 – I am ready for the adventure-

    What a great expedition. It’s hard to believe that you could assemble that crew, travel to the middle of nowhere and then actually dig up some old dinosaurs. Don’t ever grow up.

  15. Deb Ashmore

    October 18, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    Holy cow – that’s just …gahhhh. I want to go!! I’m certain I could help you dig up some good Malbecs in Patagonia!

    Good luck, Jamie. Seriously. Awesome, awesome….

    Incredible video. I want more and cannot until next year. We need videos as you scout for new locations, weekend excursions, team reunion party. Also put together a contest where a fan can join the fun next year ….

    Not quite “Honey Boo Boo”, but thoroughly enjoyed it! I was very impressed with the quality of the piece. I never noticed when you were negotiating my contracts with the Bears and Vikings that you are completely hairless on your arms. Does that help in digging? This looks like such a blast! Come out to Buffalo Grove, IL and dig in my backyard!!

    Jamie, Steve and Andrew – Always knew you guys would become “rock” stars…
    This is way cooler than anything currently on A&E or travel channel.
    Keep us posted on the journey.

    Hey all bonedoggle followers. Jamie and I have decided to have a competition between the two of us on who can loose the most weight on a percent basis by the time we launch our 2013 campaign. please put your bets in. starting point weigh in will be next week.

      October 20, 2012 at 12:12 am

      Kristoffer -
      I don’t believe we’ve met. But I have seen Jamie cook, and eat, and he’s quite proficient at both. Therefore, my money is on you. 100 bucks to the charity of your choice if you win.

        Kris is way doughier than me tho.

    October 20, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Wow! What an amazing adventure!

    And an unbeliveable discovery (for you the dinosaur bones and for me seeing how your inquiring mind works that would lead to questions like what is a $5 vs $100 spit).

    Keep making the trek and keep blogging and making videos. I love watching the discovery, fun and humor. One of these days, perhaps I will join the great adventure.

    And my bet is on Jamie to lose the wieght before the 2013 bone doggle!

    Jamie, love the video…..have followed your bone passion since you began this journey. I know how fulfilling it is for you between the excitement in your voice on camera on off. Best of luck always and of course, I’ll always be following and keeping track!!!!

    I think you’re a great guy (at least on the inside, hah!) and I want to tell you I’m proud as hell to share adventures with you. Your email was moving. At the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meeting in Raleigh, NC now learning amazing things. Can’t wait to explore with you again next year, and looking forward to the time I get to present a dinosaur you discovered to this awesome crowd.
    Your brother in arms,
