Hello Treasure Hunters. I have an update on my current search:
Well as you all know by now, the search based on my solution, which was undertaken by my then partner Michael D., wasn’t successful. However, because I felt and still feel very strongly about the area, I partnered with someone new who lives only 15 minutes from the area. She goes by the nick ‘dallasholmes’, which in reality is her real name. She became a new member to Dal’s blog in the beginning of July. When I discovered she was from the area, I contacted her and she agreed to partner with me in finding Fenn’s chest.
Dallas is a tremendously dedicated person. She’s a librarian at the Naturita Library in Naturita, Colorado, where she offers free story telling to small children. In addition, she is Director Of Development at West End Economic Development Corporation, owner of Cup Cake Designs and actively involved in a number of community organizations. One of her most important goals, is to see her area get the historical recognition that it deserves. Finding the treasure here, will do exactly that.
We started out returning to the spot in which Michael D. was unsucessful. She and I agreed that a more thorough search was warranted. The results were disappointing and we finally put that spot behind us. In the meantime, I continued looking at other promising spots that would work as well. My new spot turns out to be better fit than the original one. It required just a different understanding in Fenn’s use of certain words. I will tell you this though, he did choose his words carefully.
Because of certain conditions, Dallas was unable to get into the area of our new spot. Being as busy as she is, it is taking longer than we had hoped. Hopefully, she will be able to get there before bad weather hits. For now it is a waiting game. Soon though, we hope to be able to say the chest has been found. Wish us luck. I am posting some of the pictures Dallas has sent me.
