Capt Pappy’s Podcast: Who’s in who’s out? Don’t get left out.

So here we are in the third week of January,  a week known to be the worse for people with seasonal depression.  The weather here (Boise) is arctic like with snow on the streets now for over three weeks.  Most people stay home and have little sun to warm their hearts.  So what to do?

Take loads of vitamin D, stay warm, build a fire and listen to a good blog.  How about a blog committed to sharing all ideas on the Forrest Fenn treasure.  Perfect, let’s get stimulated, I mean revved up, juices running and dreams a dreaming.  I will start us off.  I believe Pebble Creek is a good place to revisit.  It is magical with many good secret places and several waterfalls.

Great hiding places
Water high and deep

Another nearby spot is Lamar Canyon where lies heavy lodes and water high.  There is a place down from the home of Brown (Lamar Ranger Station) called Ice Box Canyon where my team has looked that is still in the mix of possible places for a treasure.  We entered both the high end of the canyon and the low end of the canyon.  Our GPS lead us to believe we search all of the canyon except a where Forrest couldn’t go.  We deliberated for a good 20 minutes before deciding to turn back.  Water high? Very high.  But of all the places we have been this is one that will haunt me till someone swims through and checks it all out.  PLEASE DON’T Try GOING in there it would be plain dumb and dangerous.   High canyon walls, deep water, and waterfalls.  If you don’t freeze or drown you could die falling off a ledge.  I only put this area in this blog to demonstrate my desire to share where I have been.

After six years here is where I have been looking.  The Lamar Valley and many of the surrounding tributaries, Gardener and Jardine, Joe Browns mine claim and near Joe Brown put-in, Death Gulch and Cashe Creek and south of the Yellowstone Gate near Jackson Hole.

Did I say I saw a lot of Browns

Soon on the podcast, we will discuss the new areas and thoughts about the Wedding of the Waters and all the clues that make this the new area of interest.

Here is the offer to all who wish to come and add to the podcast.  We will soon be up and running.  A podcast for people to share ideas without restrictions.  One live show per week with guest and recorded shows to catch up on.  We are really excited as we consider all the possibilities.  Trips, geocaches, lots of opinions and some good laughs.  We’re even working on some music.

So join in and be a part of the think tank.  Let us proceed to discover new worlds oh, that’s Star Trek,  new places and see the great outdoors.

Now for those who think we give away too much, remember, its been over six years and I bet no one knows but Fenn so give us your best guess.
