There are unearthed treasures out there. Are you up for the hunt? Many of history’s most famous hidden treasures have either been found or been proven to be nothing more than wishful thinking. But every once in a while, we’re reminded that there are still undiscovered fortunes out there. This year, the imaginations of modern-day […]
Thanks to Toby for this video of the Fenn and Preston chat before the book signing:
The following are my opinions. I have, on more than one occasion, said and written that the event on May 18, 2017 caused a change in Fenn. He was already tired of the “activity” around the effort to find the treasure he hid. May 18, to me, was the straw that broke the burro’s back. […]

He called it “nonsense” and suggested that Forrest should go get the chest “if it exists”. Pretty insulting, don’t you think? Pete Kassetas is the chief’s name and he seems to be pretty full of…

It all started with a book, Coronado’s Children, that recounted (alleged) tales of forgotten treasures in the wilds of west Texas. I first came across it at an early age – maybe eight or nine.

Sharing a link to this blog about a Russian artist who carves gemstones:
Following up on my last post regarding my at times overzealous interest in geology and pretty much all subfields therein, it’s only fitting to admit the #1 reason we decided to visit this particular museum over any others.
