TV REQUEST…

Hello Hunters!

My name is Zack Preschel and I work for a TV company in Los Angeles.  I have become infatuated with the spirit of the hunt after pouring through the countless web-based forums and discussion threads of people from far and wide participating in America’s great treasure hunt.  Dal and I talked to find out more about Fenn, The Chase and the Chasers and I was really happy with how incredibly nice, knowledgeable and optimistic he was and I wanted to search further for stories that are just as captivating as Forrest’s and Dal’s are.

I have NO INTENTIONS of looking for Forrest’s treasure myself so don’t think I’m here looking for intellectual property to poach.  Our goal is NOT to uncover the treasure ourselves, but to tell the story of a very interesting man and how his encrypted poem has inspired thousands to connect with nature and their fellow hunters – who do you search with? What methods do you use to search?  What intangibles (or tangibles) have you gained in your journey?

Contact me here and lets find a way to get your story (but not your secrets!) on TV :

Thanks and Good Luck!

    • Hey Jake TV will love you! I personally am prettified and very shy. Television, is a very strange. My parents bought their first TV when I was 9, because of the Vietnam War ,2 of my brother’s were sent there and the government wanted to draft a third, but he was in college. I wonder if they pay you, and if that’s the case , well I would certainly be interested “balls to the walls”, and for the ignorant look it up, it’s a mechanic term.

      • Martha, I thought it was a term used by pilots. When accelerating quickly, the throttle is pushed all the way to the panel and the throttle lever (ball) actually touches the panel (wall). Hence, balls to the wall.

        Kick the tires and light the fires………

  1. Good move Jake, I truly believe you are one that will be very interesting. I know I will enjoy reading it.
    Good luck friend and let us know if you get to do it…
    Timothy…IMHO

  2. “…tell the story of a very interesting man…”

    What about a woman??
    There are lots of interesting women out looking for the treasure…and for that matter…what about kids?

    Seems like you might be limiting your search Zack…

    • Hi Dal: I do suspect Zack meant Forrest in the interesting man comment. As you point out, there are many very committed women that have been trying to solve Forrest’s poem, some if whom have worn out a few pairs of boots checking out their solutions. (I personally witnessed one pair of those boots last year at your little cache in West Yellowstone!)

      I’d throw my hat in the ring but I’ve already had my 15 minutes of fame several times on TV, so someone else deserves their shot.

  3. Shucks … if I ever went on tv, I would be at total loss for words…. I think I’m camera shy… 🙂 see ya my friends…

  4. lol now I can talk and you can under what im trying to say but when it comes to commenting and spelling it like I don’t belong here there are some good people who comment really good and understand but to I me I seem to be in left field now I understand why my mom used to tell me you got to go to school frank! !!! im not dumb im smart but in some other ways

    • Your like me frank that’s why I like the treasure hunt because all we need to find it is with imagination not a lot of knowledge 🙂

          • I know who you are you have been on the blog when I started 4 years + I don’t see you much on the blog any more but I was sure glad to hear from you and to know you are still around there are a lot of new people here but one Diggin gypsy and that’s the one that I know

  5. Before I ran out and sign up with this guy I would find out a little about him.
    Who’s producing, what network, what is this guys function to name a few.

    • Timw,

      Before I ran out and sign up with this guy I would find out a little about him.
      Who’s producing, what network, what is this guys function to name a few.

      The last time I volunteered with my nmtreasure group, it was a production company called Moonshots, http://www.moonshot-productions.com/
      who inked the 5 of us to contracts, contracts that were commissioned by and connected to Animal Planet, we had just one big problem, ff was not on board for some reason, perhaps command and control issues, but according to Eric and Dave at Moonshots Production of New York, we proceeded ahead anyway and filmed 11 hours in northern NM< .? So go ahead and google them Timw and these guys were onto other venues and yes I felt a little snake bit but that is SHow BIz!

      Now that ff is semi-retired (again) except for Jennys site, perhaps the So called TV nework interest may come back into the Chase, it seems like a Golden Opportunity was missed back in 2014, my group was entertaining, witty, funny and our solves were founded in Fenn's love of the Rockies.

      I will answer Zack P but Dal and ff have to be on board with it too.

        As far as I recall, Moonshot did not have any connection to Animal Planet other than pitching the project to the network.

        Golly, I have not heard from Moonshot for a long time… after several emails that stated a deal with a network was imminent.

  6. Find a good online dictionary, you’ll learn words have many meanings than you realized…most of Fennspeak is an creative use of words which have their own meaning.

    I haven’t found the decoder ring yet so nothing to share on tell-a-version.

  7. I think ff uses words from way back like from my younger days I always thought that meek meant small but I don’t want to put words in forrest mouth its just me

  8. If done thoughtfully, a series like this could easily be as popular as the oak island show on the History Channel. I’m still hoping the Lagina brothers find something under that island. It could be very entertaining and educational. I’m surprised Discovery or Nat-Geo hasn’t knocked on Dal’s door already.
