BoomerGirl wins the Fenn Trivia Contest

BoomerGirl also brought a boat-load of bananas and is rocking her new hair.

Wisconsin Mike brought his kids (his daughter won the kid’s trivia contest) and oversaw an experiment in crowd-sourcing the clues. Results to be announced tomorrow. Participation may have been intentionally vague, although several searchers have a high level of confidence in their solves.

Joe and Joe, Jr. from Ohio are tight-lipped about where the treas ure is, but I like the treasure hanging around Junior’s neck: a frog forged by his dad that bears an unusually strong resemblance to Forrest’s creations.

 

Thank you, Connie, for organizing the events this weekend. And best wishes to Vicki from Kentucky who’s been armchair searching since 2013, but on this, her first BOTG search, suffered altitude sickness and has visited a local oxygen bar for relief.

Colorado Bob and the Red-Head head up a 4-generation search team. Great-grandson Hunter has been on 2 of their 18+ searches.  Ken from Georgia is on his 21st trip to the Rockies. Lots more searchers present that I didn’t get to speak with. Good-luck everyone!

A lot of journalists covered tonight’s kick-off: Toby, of course, and free-lancer Lucy, Sheila of The Daily Mail online, Miranda and her photographer Annie from Esquire Britain.

As Forrest’s father said, “The banana train only goes around once.”

Forrest Modeling Mildew Personality Galore Hat Contest More than three years ago Forrest bragged about Mildew..his hat of dubious distinction. He declared that this hat was the most “interesting” on the blog. Shallow claim. I say. Help me prove the point by submitting a photo of your “interesting hat” to me at: dal at lummifilm…

When death comes to ask forgiveness

May I be ready with a kiss.

Take these trinkets. Take that treasure.

I need nothing more than this.

Forrest Fenn’s Treasure Chest

(Shared)Fun How-To by Jeremy

MARCH 2018 by Jeremy First things first, buy the hat. You need an adventure hat. It’s non-negotiable. As soon as you put it on, you’re basically Indiana Jones already. Adventure hats vary greatly depending on how cheap you are, but let’s call this $50. I spent $20. I’m cheap. Next, buy the book. The…
