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.

The mama bear had kicked her 2-year-olds out earlier this summer.

Another day, another trip.

I think I’ll be back.
