Fifty-three blogs and still I am amazed at how many visits this blog has had over the years. These entries go back as far as 2013 but I have been out there longer than that. Going back as far as 2010 about the time some suggest Forrest retrieved his treasure to take a photo for the infamous Dal picture. This is not to be overlooked. I was kept from many of the original blogs because I gave too much of my solves away and or because I asked Forrest if I was the second to the treasure’s hiding place. I sent him a notebook filled with pictures at some expense just to ask if I was at the secret hiding place but got no answer. Well I cannot blame Forrest for that as he was swamped but why was I excluded from the clique? Dal block me as several other Fenn sites. Why?
The Huntington Post picked up my blog comments and the headline read Man says he was second one to the Forrest Fenn treasure. Only about a month after that and numerous questions ask of Fenn by his followers did he say the treasure is surrounded by trees not in a tree. So “in the wood” doesn’t mean in the wood but like everything in the forest it means surrounded by trees. If I’m standing at the spot where a box had been leaving only the silhouette of the box inside and Fenn tells me that this silhouette is not where he hid the treasure I’d be happy but instead I got shut out of the group. I found the print of a box inside a tree that was the correct size and shape so why so long to tell us he did not hide it inside a tree and instead try to restrict the info?
Now the house of cards have been falling a bit. Dal has slowed down, Stephanie is shut out after many years of loyalty and eight years of searching have produce nada. Go back to read my solve printed in 2013 and you’ll find it is a good solve.
Truly there are more reasons to doubt the treasure than to believe it can be found. All this in mind I have not given up as I continue to believe the treasure is out there. I will keep looking for I am a loyal Dog of the Chase. In this spirit I offer my best places to look this year in my humble opinion.
- Around Spirit Mountain Caverns near Cody Wy.
- Sinks State Park near Landers Wy..
- Around Brown Mountain west of Thermopolis.
- Near Gardiner Wyoming and to the northwest.
Reading the comments of late have really picked me up as searchers have a collective impact on the hunt please keep it up. Read comments and judge for yourself.
It has come to my attention that many of the readers would like to join in on a search but don’t have the resources. I have taken young adults and athletes all over this country and others countries as well. Wrestlers to Germany, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico. In my 35 years of working with football players , wrestlers, judo and track athletes I have gained insights for traveling with groups. I am considering setting up the best search areas in the places most likely to hold the treasure. This will solve problems that searchers face ; Support on the trail, transportation to search areas, food and lodging.
I will get the best prices and discounts, coordinate searches and provide a map that will peek interests. Thou no one can guarantee the treasure will be found my new search areas are the best in nine years. If you agree and want to join in let me know by leaving a comment.
If you read the next post coming soon you will learn why I have a new and better search area.
