Big thanks to this big-hearted community!

To the man who hid a treasure chest in the Rockies:
Happy Birthday, Forrest!
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.

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.
