updated NOVEMBER 25th, 2013
I added an auction section to the blog. I did this so that people who are looking for a way to raise some money for their searching habit can try selling their art or spare Clovis points to other searchers on this blog. There is no fee to list something here. Just send me a photo and a description and we’ll see what we can do. Polly’s painting entitled “The Reapers” is our first item. Lets see how she does. You can get to the auctions by going up to the top, right under the big photo. There is a row of items there. The one farthest right is “Auctions”. Click on that and you will get a list of all the auctions going on right now. Click on any item in that list to go to that particular auction…
You must watch Toby’s video from Moby Dickens Bookstore in Taos. This was a book signing event where Forrest sat for nearly an hour and told stories and answered questions. He even recited his poem…
Lots to hear … Lots to laugh about…
Sunshine Hunter writes splendidly about her lengthy searches and travels in “Up a Cold Creek With No Paddle”…. Lots of pics and plenty of personal thoughts about her travels all across the mountain states in her trusty, dusty Prius, looking for Forrest’s treasure. You can visit her cool blog here and there is also a permanent link at the bottom of this page.
There is a new radio interview listed at the top of the Media Page on this blog. It is an interview by Dorothy from the Collected Works Bookstore with Forrest, Danny Bodelson (illustrator for Forrest’s new book) and Shiloh Old (Forrest’s grandson and the guy in charge of shipping all the new books).
Forrest said in an email that he will probably not be adding anything new to his blog. He also said that he is looking for an illustrator to work with him on a children’s book he is writing. We invite anyone who’d like to work with Forrest in that capacity to look here:
Still no word about a Today Show clue.
Forrest’s new book is now at the printers and should be available very soon. It is filled with lovely new stories, beautiful illustrations and never before published photos. Forrest says that there are hints to the location of the treasure inside. There is also a beautiful map of the treasure hunt area.
I have added a new story about searching with a film crew from the BBC in London to My Adventures on this blog. My next story will be about meeting Porochista Khakpour. She is an Iranian born novelist and journalist, writing a story on Forrest for a major American journal. She is a fascinating individual and a great person to spend time with. Check her out here.
I am in the Yellowstone Region. Searching a bit and meeting with the press. I have updated the cache hidden near the Dude Motel and want to thank everyone who stopped by and exchanged trinkets and wrote a note in the log book. The weather is wonderful and I have a few spots I will be checking and leaving notes on a new entry about. Still no word from Forrest about the Today Show. I guess NBC doesn’t love us anymore.
On the 27th of July there is still no word from the Today Show folks about a clue from Forrest. They have not contacted him yet.
Forrest’s “Thrill of the Chase” book is now available in Taos at Moby Dickens Book Shop, 125 Bent Street. Phone 575 758-3050. It’s also still at Collected Works in Santa Fe. The price is the same at either store….$35.
There is a new radio story about Forrest on KOSI-FM in Denver. Denise Plante visited Forrest with her kids a few days ago and brought back the report. You can listen on this blog’s Media Coverage page…here.
A new set of 7 interviews with Forrest including a promo for his new book “Too Far To Walk” are now available. You can reach them by glancing to the right of this paragraph and looking under the heading “Forrest Speaks”. The new interview set is called the “Gone Fishing Interviews”. The set from last year is called the “Santa Fe Interviews”.
I think you’ll like the new set. Forrest shows as well as talks…He shows us how to tie his favorite fishing fly, some of his unique book collection, artifacts from his pueblo ruins, and tells you how you can become a self supporting, professional artist even if you don’t have a stick of talent.
chasechat.com is back up…yipee!!
COHighCountry posted a great story about searching in NM with great photos and a riveting narrative. Look for it here.
There is a new web interview with Forrest. It’s a nice one too. Its at Club Thrifty…of all places…
Link to it is on the Media Coverage page…here.
Forrest’s Latest Today Show Clue:
The treasure is not hidden in Idaho or Utah. f
My thoughts about that clue are here.
I am home from my two week search in CO, WY and MT. I will be writing about the trip, with photos, about the 20th and adding the story to this blog under “My Adventures”.
I believe it is under this rock but Beowolf II would not let me look…lol…
I was in Yellowstone just in time for spring wildflowers…A camas prairie in bloom near Heart Lake…
I visited my cache in West Yellowstone yesterday and added some trinkets to it. I enjoyed reading the log. It’s been there a year now and several folks have found it and exchanged trinkets, including one that really surprised me because I had no idea he was near West Yellowstone. Pretty fun!!!
If you don’t know about my cache…look here-
I met up with a searcher and we had a good time exchanging ideas and theories over at Otter’s Pub in West Yellowstone. Considering how bright we both are it’s miraculous we have not found it…lol…
I posted The Wolf’s Part Four. Look here:
The new photos on the headers of the blog are Goofy’s….the guy is great isn’t he…
