Not everyone got the same thing. Door prizes. This was mine. Love it.
It’s going in the map chest Mr. W altered for me to store my arrowhead collection in.
I would love to have chosen the signed book, Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch, about artist/renaissance man Eric Sloane, but my number was called too late for that gem, or Copper Dan’s magnificent art pieces.
Much appreciation to those whose efforts made the event possible. I was looking for closure in the form of the true solution to the clues in the poem, but that’s not looking likely at this point.
All in all, what a great Finale. Rest in peace, Forrest Fenn.
He passed just a day after many of his searchers gathered in West Yellowstone for a Finale, since he announced in June that the treasure had been found. I’ll share photos of that later, but for now, just pausing to remember his legacy.
It’s a start. A new message from Forrest Fenn reveals the treasure was hidden and found in Wyoming. That was my first solve.
Can’t wait to learn more someday.
The message below is posted on Dal’s site: The Thrill of the Chase.
SUBMITTED June 6th, 2020 by Forrest The treasure has been found It was under a canopy of stars in the lush, forested vegetation of the Rocky Mountains and had not moved from the spot where I hid it more than 10 years ago. I do not know the person who found it, but the poem…
I for one can’t wait to learn the meaning of each of the clues that so intrigued me for the last several years. I hope the person who found it, who for now wishes to remain anonymous, will share DETAILS. So curious as to what led him to the precise spot.
Thank you to all 485 followers on WordPress and the 85 who followed this blog via email. It was fun to create a blog and see what happened. The Fenn Diagrams will remain up until my annual paid fee expires early next year. Then I think if goes to a free version and loses the formatting. Adds may appear before it floats into oblivion.
I’ll post links to the updates as they are posted. Imagine you are all as curious as to who and and how as I am. It’s been a joy. Thanks again.
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!
I used to think that I had an answer to everything and wished that people would ask me the questions. Now, as I find myself aging, I know I don't have any answers and hope that people don't ask me any questions. .
