“Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.”
Enzo to Andreas from The Dane
Thanks to Stephanie and Toby for sharing Tuesday’s book signing Q & A in Santa Fe. It’s the next best thing to being there.
Forrest Fenn was being Forrest Fenn—
a) generously giving a new clue: The treasure is not above 20,000 feet.** Not that any of the mountains appearing on his map in Too Far To Walk are nearly that high.
I remember wishing while out west that my car had an altimeter so I’d know when I was over 5,000 feet (a previous clue.)
b) sealing his lips when asked for too much information.
It looked like the entire trio (Fenn, Preston, and McGarrity) had a wonderful time. Thanks again!
Now, in other business—i.e. Dal’s current contest—
I sent him 2 pictures, so the caption you see goes more with the first one, not shown, which is a shadow of a small wooden chest dripping with (costume) jewelry, and it’s the only picture, shadow or otherwise, that anyone is going to see of my “chest” on the internet.
Secondly, and this shouldn’t need to be stated, the “jewel” I’m holding in picture two is fake, a piece of glass, just so no one gets the idea it would be worth their trip to the Midwest.
** A better clue, the treasure is not over 10,200 feet, appeared in a separate article recently.
