Billybobs is 75 dog years old . He is my best friend. He has been taking the end of the chase well and he has no bone to chew.
Page 59 in TTOTC “I read the book titled Journal of a Trapper by Osborne Russel who traveled along the Madison River in 1835 outside of West Yellowstone where Hebgen Lake is now. Forrest Said he was born a hundred years too late. He was borne in 1930.
Page 59 in TTOTC Forrest says Jim Bridger’s trappers were attacked by eighty Blackfeet Indians.

Page 133 The story of Gardiner’s Island following the treasure poem. Gardiner down to Yankee Jim canyon has all the types of of clues but it may be an example of the same kind of thing that happens at the Firehole.

Page 50 in TTOTC In Love With Yellowstone.
Page 48 The story about washing dishes and the brown gravy. Hot water to large pots (Cauldrons) to canyon in his hands.

More to come and a comment on River bathing is best where Forrest gives us what he means by WWWH. There are many places like that in the Rocky Mountains but most line up behind Madison Junction on the Gibbons and the Firehole rivers and once there at the beginning of the Madison there are no more.
