  1. Dal, where do these scrapbook entries come from? Are they old images you have taken yourself (or found) or does FF suddenly send them and ask you to post them on your site?

      They all come from Forrest…to post on my blog. He generally sends me a couple of pictures and some sort of caption. Sometimes I add clarifying info. For instance he sent no caption for the pics on 23 so I wrote everything.
      On 22 His original caption was:
      “Barry Peterson from CBS News, Bob Hayworth, Forrest and Douglas Preston grin after a book signing at Collected Works book store in Santa Fe.” I added additional information because I doubted that everyone knows who Bob Haworth and Doug Preston are.
      On 19 that is his unvarnished, original, complete and total caption.
      The pic on 22 was sent to Forrest by Crayton. Forrest sent it to me without a caption. I hesitated to post it because I didn’t want folks to think I was showboating. After I finally posted it he didn’t like what I wrote. He noticed that I left off my name and where the canon came from and what it’s name is. So I added some additional information and made a game out of figuring out which one Crayton is. I didn’t want to look like I was trying to upstage Forrest with a picture of my adventures.
      9 is completely his caption. That is why I have not changed it even though clearly, that is not his office.
      We have not talked about this but the reason’s he sends these and asks that I post them is, I think, because Forrest wants you to know something about him. See who he hangs with and what he enjoys. He’s sharing…I know for a fact that his intent is not to confuse anyone …rather, to provide some background. I don’t believe these pics have to do with the treasure so much as they do about knowing something about the guy who hid this dream everyone is searching for.
      He sometimes sends them in spurts and sometimes just one…
      I have a few more to post but since the Today show there is very little time to do anything but answer email and monitor the blog…

  2. Just thumbing through the early scrapbooks. I always liked this one for some reason( the picture). I also refer back every so often because it helps to stay grounded. Read Dal’s response to Munkypuzzle. I still believe that Forrest mainly shares to give us all a glimpse of who he is or isn’t. I also suspect that he is human and falls prey to the urge to mess w/ some who inundate him w/endless gibberish. Dal’s blog is the freeway to info about the man and there just may be a few hints too…Thanks Goofy and Dal.
