The following email exchange was between a searcher named Jeffrey and Forrest:
Hi Mr Fenn
February 9th is my wife Kandy’s birthday.
So, by your inspiration, I bought five birthday cards and wrote in each one then put a $20 bill in each card. Then, I hid them in different places in our house.
I did this the first week of January and didn’t tell her they were hidden in the house.
She accidently found the first one. I had written 1 of 5 on the outside of it. She now hunts several times a day for the other cards.
So far she has found 2 of the five.
She tells her friends about the chase, then they quickly volunteer to help for a percentage of the take. She declines the offer with a smile.
Thanks for the idea.
That is a good story.
Hi again Mr Fenn
You have made Kandy and I’s day and made us smile.
I grin every time she is close to one of the remaining cards or when she jumps up to go check another spot.
Guests have volunteered their thoughts on hiding places and ask her if she checked the freezer.
She wanted a hint and asked if she was warm. Since we have a basement I told her they were upstairs. Now I have a pat answer for every question, if you are upstairs you are warm…:)
