Day 1 
* We will meet and depart from Syracuse, NY. (exact location tbd.) 

*We will pack our lunch and head to a fossil dig. Why? Because we can and we are geek. What will we do with our finds? Make them into jewelry! Duh.

*When we have had enough, we will a pit stop at a local NY winery on our way back to the AirBnB.

*The rest of the first day will be spent working on UFO's, sharing laughs, a home cooked meal and perhaps some more drinks to top it off.

Day 2

*We will have breakfast at our rental then pack lunch and go digging for Herkimer Diamonds!

*We will find something to do on our way back, maybe a little antiquing or visit a local museum. If we have not gotten enough wine, I am sure there is another winery we visit.

*We will have an early dinner at the iconic Dinosaur BBQ restaurant. Before heading back to the rental to do some more hanging out.
