2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 25,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    I know this sounds hard to believe, but I must be living in another world- it was only in the last 6 months or so that I ever heard about ff and the treasure. Since that time it has intriqued me to no end. So much so that I am scheduled to leave for YP at the end of this week. As have untold thousands before me, I too have some thoughts….. I guess I need to come to the point before I bore you to death. After reading numerous blogs, one really struck me…and that was the comments re: the impression. Was it really you who found it and could you please give me a little insight about it? Did you take any pictures, was it in a big enough place for a man to lay down beside it?etc. etc, I really would appreciate any help. This is costing me more than I can afford, but hey,as we get closer to the end, the bucket list gets closer too. Again, my thanks in advance and best wishes to you!


    1. Bob I just returned from Yellowstone this weekend. I am sorry we did not meet. The date I was there was 7/23/2016. I recommend the Iron Horse in Gardiner Mt. for the best elk burger ever. For five years they have kept that burger on the menu. Now as to the treasure hunt, I went to the tree you are referring to about five years ago. The hole in the trunk is large but only a contortionist could fit inside of it.
      The bottom of the hole did have the impression of a box but it was not a perfect square. It is, without a doubt, a very cool hiding place on the Lamar River that I was at that time convinced was the home of Mr. Fenn’s treasure. Bob go there and check it out if you dare (There are animals in that Valley) but keep in mind I didn’t find it and I have moved on.
      The Gardiner side kept me busy for a long time but this is not where I looked these last two times. Now I am going to tell you where I had last thought it was and then you can get a chance to look where the Boise Think Tank believed the chest is waiting. Wow! We just left and at that time were sure we needed to go back to Pebble Creek. I feel this is a better place to look. Because you like many of us has to sacrifice to join in on the chase I wanted to keep with the purpose of this blog and give you a boost up. Finally I have still another place to be first at. I was second to the “immaculate impression” but I plan to be the first to the blaze.
