    • Mike, are you still searching? New area? Will you hold another solve get-together at your site? I really enjoyed that! Looking forward to seeing you and your kids if they attend.

  1. Cool ! And the best part is, I’m already here! Let me know what I can do to help Jamie, You can look for me in the “Collective Works” parking lot . Since I have the restroom key code, bathing is much easier, and the electric hand dryers can dry my clothes in under an hour.
    If I’m not there, I’ll be in some parking lot around Santa Fe. Ha Ha Forrest.

  2. Would love to make my first Fennboree, May be on my way back from searching and Function at the Junction. Long drive from florida round trip

  3. I’ll be day hiking with the dogs in the Pecos that week, including some fav routes that begin at the ski parking lot up above Hyde. If there’ll be an are-they-real-or-not event, I’d like to stop by. Even if not, my two girls would love to meet Molly, I’m sure.

      • ‘not on the agenda’

        In fennspeak, that may mean….hmm…

        Not to digress (OK, intentionally digressing)…saw your recent blog. Just stop feeding the youtube beasts. You’re one of the few above all that.

  4. I expect to be there. Let’s see who tags along with me. I hope that the treasure being found is announced by f at the 2019 Fennnboree gathering. Ok, ok, IF it is found. Now, wouldn’t that be a highlight?!?!!!!

  5. Thanks jdiggins for hosting Fennboree this year… I’m sure it will be a blast as usual… I’ll try to make it my friend… until next time… see ya

  6. Here’s a recent update to the events. I’m arriving at my campsite at Hyde Park on Thursday, July 4th, as are others. I will host a country hoe-down with a group campfire that evening with music from Willie’s Roadhouse, old country songs. We can slow dance ‘cross the floor… well, in this case it will be across the rocky dirt ground. Bring your own booze, or non-alcoholic beverages. Once again, please… NO GLASS containers.
    Here’s a link to one of the songs. Don’t forget your cowboy boots and hats!

    • You can bet I will!
      Here’s a teaser…in addition to Cynthia’s Thursday night hoedown (woohoo!!!), and the Friday night campfire weenie roast….
      Currently working on a Tshirt design contest, a children’s treasure hunt, and a fun game for the adults. In the past we did trivia, we could do that again and/or play pin the lid on the chest or something silly…
      I’m open to suggestions!
      Cant wait to meet you twingem, and everyone else!

      • I would like to bring all supplies and cook pancakes on the 7th if someone else could provide a cooktop. One big “but” though — I cannot commit to this until mid June.

        I know – flaky. But that is the best I can offer at this time. If anyone wants to go in on a possible last minute pancake breakfast, let me know.

  7. Thank you to all who entered the 2019 Fennboree Tshirt design contest! There were some awesome entries! Also big thanks to all who voted!
    Congratulations to our winner(s), you can see their winning designs here:
    If you like to order a shirt for yourself and/or anyone else, you can order by clicking the link posted on the winners page.
    Again, thank you all for your participation!
    Fennboree is going to be awesome!!!

  8. Joe –

    If you end up doing Fennboree Sunday morning breakfast I will donate to the cause for any supplies you may need.

  9. Morecowbell, thanks for the offer. I think I have that covered, though. I do not have a cooktop, but if I go, I found that propane griddles are not too expensive and i’ll just add one to my collection. Current plan is to go.

  10. Joe, In the past, we just used a regular stove top griddle on top the huge grille that is there. Charcoal for fuel and then a couple large griddles on top the grille to cook as many pancakes as possible at once. Just saying if you don’t want to buy a propane griddle.

    Morecowbell, I think I heard you offer Joe “supplies” as needed. Orange juice and champagne for the boozers in the bunch. And we know who we are from past Fennboree breakfasts!

  11. I had “tentatively” volunteered to cook pancakes the morning of the 7th. I can now say there is a 99% chance I will be there to do that. I Look forward to meeting everyone!

  12. Just to give an update to anyone interested…

    I should be up there at Hyde Park Wednesday evening, the 3rd of July to ensure a camping spot. I’ll be in the main loop, where we usually camped in the past. I’ll have my iconic Iron Man sign up at the entrance to my site for anyone looking around for us treasure hunters 🙂

    Saturday morning I’ll be making fried pineapple pies at the potluck lunch shelter around 9-10 am. What isn’t eaten then will be available during the lunch get together. Can’t wait to see all of the usual suspects and even new people that weekend.

  13. Hey Will!!! Since my (9) nine clues may or may not be contiguous I will be focusing on practicing my pineapple pie baking skills so look out!!! I may even sneek up to the mountains before Fennboree and obscound with some wild Huckleberries to throw in the mix 🙂 Look forward to seeing you again and everyone else and anyone new too… So there you go Treasures New and Old…

  14. Hi all!
    just a quick update…
    if you are bringing something to the potluck please let me know what it is, please PM me.
    We are less than 2 months from ‘Bree 2019’, and oh boy do we have a fun four days of events planned and the prize pool is growing! Everyone who attends and signs in the guestbook on Saturday ( you can sign in right at the Pavilion) will be given 2 different color raffle tickets each. One for the TTOTC doodle book, and the other for drawings throughout the day.
    once I compile a list I will post it.
    Sacha and I are meeting this weekend and I’m sure another update will follow!…

  15. Sorry,
    Fragmented sentence above..
    Once I compile a list of prizes and a list of food donations, I will post it.

  16. Howdy all!
    Fennboree is just six weeks away now, and I’d like to fill y’all in on some updates!
    Thanks to Dal for posting the flyer above, it is your official Fennboree 2019 itinerary.
    The prize pool is now up to 34 items and growing, and this number does not include the TTOTC doodle book, nor the mystery prize (it’s a doozie!) There will be three raffles Saturday; a red ticket, white ticket and of course a blue ticket! EVERYONE that attends gets one, and only one ticket of each color. The red ticket will be your entry for the TTOTC doodle book. The white ticket is your entry for the Mystery Prize, and the blue ticket is for the rest of the awesome prizes donated by so many of you great peeps! Thank you!
    To get your tickets, come see me by the fireplace at Pavilion #2 on Saturday as soon as you arrive, and I’ll have a guestbook for sign in. You can sign your real name, your blog name, your dogs middle name or whatever, I just need everyone’s x in the book so it’s fair for all. You sign in, you get a nametag and a ticket of each color. You cannot sign in for anyone else but yourself, I will not give anyone more than one ticket of each color. Everyone is eligible!
    Cynthia has graciously offered to provide everything needed for the Thursday Night Hoedown, and the Friday Night Hotdog Roast, but asks all attendees to bring a bag of chips/snacks if you so desire, and your own beverages, whether it’s alcohol or not. Parents should provide their kids with the ingredients for smores. Thanks Cynthia, you rock!

    Joe and Larry have each individually offered to provide everything and volunteered to cook the Sunday Pancake breakfast, so big shout out and huge thanks to you guys too!

    I have created a wishlist that I am hoping can be fulfilled as I plan to decorate and have an Independence Day theme this year. This is a way you can donate toward the overall event and there is no money exchange going on. Please click this link: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1II9672D6WE9R?ref=cm_sw_sm_r_wl_mw_kBmzx9dfOAAzJ review the list, and if you can, purchase an item for the cause. The items will be shipped to me and I will bring them to the event.
    I have also created a list below of mainly food items. I know some of you are driving, some are flying and its not easy to bring something on or plane or extended drive. If you can bring an item on the list below, great! If not, no worries, stop by Albertsons at the bottom of the hill on your way in! Just kidding, If you can help, it is greatly appreciated. If you cannot, simply being our guest is appreciated!
    To sign up for anything on the list below, please reply with which item so I can create a “menu” of sorts.
    I’ll also be looking for volunteers for barbequing (Im a terrible cook, indoors and out!)
    Again, if you can help with either the wishlist or bringing an item or two below, please do. If you cannot, don’t worry about it, Just come and have a great time!

    Request for:
    cooking volunteers for Saturday potluck
    meats to bbq
    ice chests
    main dishes such as casseroles, pastas, etc..
    salads and sides
    chips and other snacks
    cookies and other desserts

  17. Thanks for doing the Amazon thing. I can’t make it to Fennborree this year, but I can participate in this manner. My heart will be with yall and I will be thinking of yall. Any word on Forrest attending this year?

  18. Thank you Carolyn! Sorry you cant make it, but youll be with us in spirit!
    Thank you for your help!
    I have not gotten word if Forrest will attend or not.

  19. Just wanting to bring attention to Fennboree 2019 again. I know my search area is currently covered in snow. I really want to search my one spot prior to Fennboree. As with my previous overnight searches, I’m looking forward to my solitude. C’mon warm weather!

  20. Countdown is down to one month!
    I think this years fennboree is going to be the biggest and the best! Thanks to all of you for help in making it happen! Look forward to seeing old friends and to meeting new ones! Remember to wear your red, white and blues!
    To get your free raffle ticket for each of the red, white and blue raffles to be held, there will be a guestbook to sign in. I am hoping everyone who attends will “sign” in, and if they want, leave a brief message, even if you dont want tickets. I will be gifting it to Forrest!
    Cant wait y’all!

  21. The event should be a lot of fun for everyone. The last couple of weeks I have been seeing a shift in my life and I have to follow the path of less resistance. I had met some wonderful people on the chase. I am sure they know who they are.

    I made a pretty good decision tonight not to attend the event this year. I think I had my go at it and it is time for me to back away and get some rest. I have a lot of traveling planned for this summer. One place is in the parking lot at a museum in Oklahoma so I will be there during the Fennboree 2019 event. After that chapter who knows where my compass will point me but I hope it isn’t a direction I am ready for yet because I have a lot of work still left to do.

    Now I feel I am on top of the world and I don’t plan to be getting down anytime soon no matter what the situation awaits me. I may seem a little perplexed but that goes with the territory that is being displayed. Maybe I am thinking too hard to what I am looking at.

    Good luck everyone.

    • Geydelkon;

      If you are bowing out of the Chase for a bit – so-long my friend.

      Sounds as though you are making the correct decision for yourself. If it is health issues, I hope that you can find the right Dr.’s and heal quicklt

      Take care, and Always TRY to STAY SAFE – JDA

      • Hello Sir,

        Thanks for the kind words. It has been several years now since I have found what I needed. I have completed a short journey that lead me to a bigger challenge. I think about where the treasure is hidden in the rocky mountains almost everyday. In the back of my own mind I just have to laugh. It gets me through the day and at night I lower my guard to see if there are other ways that it will test me.
        The treasure chest is still out there to be found. I think the reason why people can’t find it is because they just live for the day and nothing more.

        Oh they talk about how they will sell it or spend it to make there lives better. To some degree I can see their dire. I talk to my daughter about many things and I explain to her if you want to live a good life you just have to have a positive direction. You can be rich or poor and the results will be the same. I am proud of her.

        I don’t think people are listening or want to try to learn about what the chase is all about. Forrest has given everyone the idea but no one is really listening. To those he is feeding are those who will be starving by their own personal thoughts. You play the part and you will be a great actor.

        So sir, I am doing great and couldn’t be better. No health issues to worry about just my own sin. I have to keep the vision alive until my last breath and that is a decision I have no control of.

        Good Luck

        • Well said Geydelkon. I myself had to take a break from here to search and think. Now waiting to get home to a real computer to digest some photos!
