Forrest Fenn’s friend Douglas Preston’s novel comes true??? Thought I’d share this since I read a few of his books while under the influence, hoping for hints, if not outright clues, as to where the Fenn treasure is hidden, not necessarily buried. ; )
A record of the most significant event in the history of life on Earth, the fossil evidence of the almost-instant extinction of most life on the planet: “The Day the Dinosaurs Died” (Plus- Cope)
If donations for Jamie Jordan (aka JDiggins), who lost her home and business in the Mendocino fire, reach $26,255.72 by August 31, Forrest Fenn will donate an additional $10,000.
Some of the 60 prizes in the raffle drawing are pictured below.
Big thanks to this big-hearted community!
UPDATE: THEY MADE IT!!!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years since a birthday wish for Forrest turned into an invitation to visit his place in Santa Fe. Fascinating man. Astounding collections. I treasure the memory.
Forrest Fenn has donated the original artwork of The Dancing Gypsies from p. 43 of The Thrill of the Chase. A silent auction is being conducted on Cynthia’s blog.
And, there is this post today from forum:hint of riches. QUOTED–
This is HUGE
Please, everyone listen with big ears (to quote Forrest).
As of today we have raised $16,255.72 to help Jamie Jordan, who lost her home and business in the terrible Mendocino Fire. If we can get enough donations to raise that figure to $26,255.72 by August 31, Forrest will donate $10,000 to Jamie. That will give us $36,255.72. WOW!
Please help us spread this word around the search community because we need everybody’s help.

On a quiet Sunday afternoon, I finally strolled over to find Dorothy McKibbin’s obscure office space.
(And found another interesting gallery nearby.)
In a previous post, I mentioned Sheinkin’s excellent hx books
And for an exciting historical fiction read regarding the Norwegian episode of the race, read The Saboteur, by Andrew Gross.
