Fall is here and the air brings the promise of tart pies and homemade apple cider. I often think of the next time I might travel to where my spot is. I fear that winter will be upon us before I can make it there. Hopefully the beautiful chest is waiting for me down the canyon from WWH! If I follow the clues precisely, I should be reporting a new resting place for the chest. ( This Spring!) If, in the mean time, one of you find it, so be it. Happy Hunting


It has been awhile since I have been active on here. I also have not actively searched in way too long. This does not mean I have not thought of the treasure often. I have an idea and plan on going as soon as the funds are available and life slows down enough. Off grid life might be slower, but it takes time! I have had an increase in traffic and even met a hunter lately, so I thought I better put an update. I am doing great. I do not live in Hot springs anymore, but still will meet up. Let me know a good week ahead of time though as I am hardly online, as one hunter found out, I need to know you are serious about meeting! I live near Idaho, off 200. I hope you all are enjoying your searches. Oh, I will not join up, unless you can fund or actively participate yourself. I am happy to go hunting together, but have my own idea where it is, and am convinced. I have driven over ten thousand miles and covered most of the territory it could be in. I have gotten very sidetracked, often. My next hunt is different. It might not be necessary as according to the person I just met, whom I must keep secret, as he asked me to be hush hush, he has found it. Good luck! No offense, really, but I will believe it when I see it in person. So, happy day all. It is time to eat and finish my online musings. Be well, and happy hunting!


I found a treasure today! At our community center, on the free porch, lo and behold I spied a pristine copy of “The Thrill” waiting to go to a new home. Since mine is written in and tattered, I was pleased to find this. It is inspiring to get off the couch and get looking again. I have been thinking very hard and know exactly where I am looking next time I get the cash to go hunting. My new copy will go in a safe place and I will keep my old copy for a working book. Thanks Forrest for the adventure and fun. It is always thrilling.
